Fundraise for a Cause with Milaap : the Best Crowdfunding Site | Milaap
11th September 2019
Dear Supporters,

We have got a tremendous response from all of you for our fundraiser. We thank you and Milaap team for the immense support you have given towards our cause.

We started the efforts for building the hospital four years back and this is our fourth attempt to raise funds through crowdfunding. Our earlier attempts had not raised a fraction of the actual cost till now. The response this time has given us faith and belief that we can achieve what we envisioned with your help. This will make it the 3 largest, best equipped and the only residential vet facility of its kind in India.

As we re-commence our efforts to build, we owe each and every donor the transparency of how their money will be spent to the last rupee. The following section outlines our budget and use of funds including quotations from vendors.

Here's the overall breakup of the costs involved in making the hospital a reality
  • Construction of hospital premises - Rs 52.97 Lakhs
  • 3 Mobile Ambulance (1 fully equipped with OT)  Vans: Rs 36 Lakhs
  • Diagonostic equipment: Rs 26 Lakhs
  • Total ~ Rs 1.15 Crores

Hospital Premises:
Initially, we had kept the goal amount as Rs 50 Lakhs (~$70,000) since our immediate need was to cater for the hospital which can provide a huge relief for our dogs and other animals. Here, is the proforma invoice (quotation) that was issue by Suryoday Enterprises for our hospital with a budget of Rs 52,97,000 which shows the breakup of construction and other details.

 

Here is a video of the sanctuary where the construction work has already begun including the vets facility.



Mobile Ambulance Vans
VOSD started as a rescue in 2013 and by 2015 we were one of the largest rescue organization! We were picking up, treating almost 3600 dogs a year, without even considering the option off euthanasia. This included sophisticated surgeries such as tendon reconstruction, spinal and brain trauma, etc for stray/abandoned dogs in India. And it was a service provided free. This was made possible with:

  • A fleet of vehicles including 1 Tempo van with a fully functional OT with water and power supply, 6 ambulances with a team of 2 each, 3 transport vehicles for logistics and a fully functional Trauma Center with a capacity of 100+ dogs in critical care at any time. 
  • Unfortunately, the infrastructure had to be disbanded and sold off for lack of funds to continue the day-to-day operations of the sanctuary. Of this infrastructure, only the 3 transport vehicles remain in service. 
We wish to restart the best rescue service in India again - with 1 Tempo Traveler Ambulance van (equipped with OT), 2 Maruti Ecco ambulance vans. The proforma invoices for these place them at Rs 19 lakhs, and Rs 16 lakh, totaling 35 lakhs.





Diagonostic equipment:
The cost of the diagnostic equipment essential for the hospital is roughly Rs 26 lakhs with an immediate requirement of Rs 8 Lakhs for the equipments mentioned below. We are awaiting the complete quotation for all equipments and shall present it in the next update.




This was our vision and goal, to reach out to the maximum number of dogs in need of support and give them the best care to our ability. Your support has been invaluable for us and we would like your continued support to give our best.

We commit to posting an update to all of you on the progess as well as the exact expenditure (to be) incurred whenever we withdraw. Please do continue your valuable support and please do share the campaign with your friends and family.

Thank you all!

Sincerely,

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for your overwhelming response and love. We are truly humbled by your generous contribution toward our cause.

The funds received will be used for expanding the hospital and to meet the daily needs of 850 dogs that we cater to. The plan is to expand and rescue as many dogs as possible. Currently, we spend about 15-20 lakhs every month on the maintenance of the shelter like food, medicines...etc. As we all know, hospital building for 850 dogs is going to cost us a huge sum of money and since most of them have medical needs, we need to get started with this process as soon as possible. This will not be possible without your support. Please continue your valuable support by helping us reach our goal.



Thank You once again.
