Namaste Dear supporters, readers, and animal lovers.
We became GlobalGiving permanent partners in April. 7 months passed by with flying colors! We thank all our awesome supporters. You have no idea what your kindness and support means to us, and for our rescue. Getting the best medical care for these very deserving dogs gets quite expensive. None of this work that we are able to do for the animals is possible without your generous help!
Stray Animal Foundation of India strives in and out for better lives of the unspeakable and inexpressible injured street animals. Albeit multiple lockdowns and hurdles of COVID 19 collective efforts of the volunteers, sponsors and donators were very well put to use this past year which resulted in splendid accomplishments.
In 7 months we saved many lives, sterilized many dogs and cats, completed many construction projects, that we have been planning for a long time. Our goal was to build infrastructure to help as many pups within our capacity mainly in Hyderabad city. We have helped 2 shelters in Hyderabad, India, many more around the country.
We not only served for betterment of individual street animals but also lend a helping hand to other Rescue Organizations.
Listing our proud 2021 achievements here
- Over 250 critically injured street dogs were rescued,
- Over 350 dogs sterilized and adopted 39 dogs.
- Breath Animal foster Home, Hyderabad, India – Our official partner shelter, helped them out with leasing the land, building a brand-new shelter. Bought an ambulance for our partners to better serve the stray animals. Also, built 4 rooms, 25 kennels, Build1 container home and help them serve 97 dogs, cats, owls, cattle, and donkey with critical vet care.

Here are awesome videos of our shelter tours.
Having a place dedicated to paralyzed, senior, disabled dogs with smooth flooring was important. We have at-least 10 paralyzed/disabled in our shelters. Without smooth flooring they drag their legs and scratch feet on hard surface. We were able to finish a dedicated place for them. We have another medium size project to build an open place with smooth floor for disabled. Disabled dogs do not want to miss fun. They often want to hang out outside in open place and play. But regular mud floor will hurt their feet. We value every pup in need.
We are consistently spaying/neutering up to 20 dogs a month. Our goal is to increase it to 200 a month.
Despite COVID, or shelter folks affected by COVID, our shelter folks did great job rescuing, rehabilitating, vaccinating, sterilizing and releasing almost 200+ dogs in 2020. We have about 20 permanent resident dogs who are either paralyzed/seniors/disabled.

We at Stray Animal Foundation of India strive day to day to serve the uncared, unloved, neglected street animals. We rescue, transport the injured, rehabilitate, sterilize and put up the animals for adoption.
We would like to see these numbers multifold in coming future with all your cooperation and contribution.
For a service center as this to sustain the growing number of neglected and injured street animals a substantial amount of multiple material and human resources are to be maintained. That’s where your contributions are put towards.One can only understand the financial support our foundation would require to travel the long way laying ahead of us. Actions speak a thousand words. Lets come together and put our hearts to for a wonderful cause.
