2021: Here we go!

Image

 Welcome to 2021. So far, it has not looked that much different than 2020, but we do have some good news!

After a year of not being able to run our sterilization program due covid restrictions as well as the following ongoing issues: 

 

  • The turnover of vets is horrendous in India. Vets only stay until they get government jobs (1-year max) or their family needs them home which is common in the culture. 
  • The local government refuses to help even though we have given them proposals for the past 7 years to provide us space for sterilization camps, and/or for funding and we are always denied.
  • Due to Covid, we cannot get foreign vets to come help.

We are finally in a position to ramp our program back up. By April, we should be sterilizing approximately 60 dogs per month and, if all goes well with visas to India, a camp for October/November this year. FINGERS CROSSED - because the only true way to stop the human/dog conflict and the continuous suffering of the dogs in Dharamsala is through spay/neuter programs. 

  

LOCAL ADOPTIONS AND FEEDING ON THE RISE

We are pretty excited to let you know that we are seeing more people adopt local street dogs to be their pets. Above, are Apple and Arib, both adopted this year to loving local homes. 

We are also partnering with a local family who feeds 250 street dogs (and some cows, mules, etc) each day. We provide one weeks worth of food and coordinate rescues, and treatments. The amount of feeders has grown in Dharamsala exponentially, improving the human/street dog conflict. 

We are hoping to expand this program by working more closely with more people who feed and care for street dogs in their villages. Stay tuned. 

 

MEET RYLIE - A 4 Month Old Pup Stuck in Tar

When we rescued Rylie she was traumatized. 

We found her stuck in a puddle of hardened tar. We had no idea how long she had been there, nor did we know how many people passed her by before calling us.

We had no idea how many days it had been since she had food or water - she was weak and scared. Our staff members, Shivu and Tamanna, spent hours removing the tar- softening it with vegetable oil and carefully working it out of her fur. 

It is cases like these that truly break us. But because of your support, we can continue to rescue to help save lives. 

We cannot thank you enough for all of you support. As you know, we are always needing to raise funds. We did not reach our goal last week during the Little by Little Matching Week of $6500, yet we came close!

 

If you can help us reach our goal, please consider donating HERE. 

 

With gratitude,
