Needed - New Ambulance for Street Animal Rescue

by Dharamsala Animal Rescue
Vetted

Summary

Dharamsala Animal Rescue has been in existence for almost 4 years and fully funds our on ground project in India. After a tragic accident with our current ambulance, and our desire to to increase the amount of street dogs we sterilize, vaccinate and rescue, a replacement vehicle is needed to continue our operations. By donating to this project, you are helping thousands of street animals live a healthier and fuller live as well as working to prevent human deaths by rabies.

Challenge

In 2008, we raised enough funds to start an animal clinic, purchase a vehicle and hire a staff to implement humane birth control for the thousands of street dogs. We also rescue and heal the sick and injured. Today, we have spay/neutered/vaccinated hundreds of dogs but we still have a long way to go. Thousands of dogs still live on the street. We currently built more kennels and need a larger ambulance to accommodate more animals to expand our impact to surrounding communities of Dharamsala.

Solution

Being the only street dog clinic in the entire state of Himachal Pradesh, our impact in Dharamsala has been noted. Other communities would now like our services and there is still much to be done with in our own town. We are happy to say, no new cases of human death by rabies has been reported in Dharamsala, but in surrounding towns, there have been at least 3 reports. With a larger ambulance, as well as our new kennels, we will be able to attend to more animals humanely and save human lives.

Long-Term Impact

We are hoping as we raise awareness of our work, that we will be able to spread to the surrounding towns and the entire state of Himachal Pradesh. As you move outside of Dharamsala, the conditions severely worsen where there is no one doing this work. The animals are hungry and sick and many. If we expand, we know that we can humanely control the population of the street dogs and have good results.
