To know about our activities please visit our fb page:https://www.facebook.com/Animal-Care-Takers-440091056421475/
ACT having a temporary shelter and currently their number has reached close to 50 plus and counting as we still conduct rescues 24/7 - we thought we should reach out to genuine animal lovers who can take an initiative and help us in taking care of these lovely creatures.
Our 1st goal is to get a vehicle ( even a used vehicle if not brand new ) to travel to various rescue sites and also to bring back the injured or sick animals to our temporary shelter or take to a specialized clinic whenever required. Thus, saving on transport costs. TATA Ace,ECO or similar transport vehicles are what we are looking at.
This initiative is to fundraising for ambulance the goal is 3 lakh and its a immediate need as currently we are getting 30-40 cases per day.
ACT is doing sterilization support,rescues,rehabilitation and support in other major surgeries and for this transportation is needed.
Join hands to make this initiative successful
ACT finalized the ambulance.The cost of ambulance is 4.8 lacs on road.Ambulance will be used for rescues,sterilization and rehabilitation activities.
ACT finalised a place for permanent shelter and its cost 1.5 Crore to purchase a land of 1 Acre in 15-20 km radicus of Hyderabad
ACT started a campaign "Home for stray Animals -Angel's Fund". Angel is a rescued baby ,at a time of rescue she was 45 days old and now she is 8 months old. She had met with an accident when a reckless auto driver ran over her thereby inflicting injuries that required a total of 36 stitches. We rushed her to various hospitals but were told that her total treatment would require more than Rs. 5000 + additional costs for post operative care. We pooled our own money and took some loans ( as it was a month end, and most of the salaried people know what generally happens on month ends when you are waiting for your next salary ), and , with great efforts, got this little girl treated. With proper care she has recovered now and is a bundle of joy while being extremely naughty.
After this incident, we realized that we can do our bit in rescuing and rehabilitating such animals in need whom no one gives even a second look forget about treatment. We have a total of 25 grown up animals and 25 puppies and 5 injured dogs in our care. We have faced numerous problems from neighbors and society around, due to which we had to relocate twice. Still, we continue to do whatever we can and although we get some appreciation from a few people but that does not always turns into a helping hand for these lovely animals.
Now, that their number has reached close to 50 plus and counting as we still conduct rescues 24/7 - we thought we should reach out to genuine animal lovers who can take an initiative and help us in taking care of these lovely creatures - whether its in the form of medicine, food or donations which help us in providing them with various things like toys, snacks, sand ( for litter) and many other expenses that crop up, will be highly appreciated. We take up monthly Vaccination & sterilization drives as well for the strays in hyderabad and secunderabad. We also have a program for placing water bowls for stray animals all over the twin cities. We conduct bi-monthly adoption drives for stray puppies as well.
A part of the funds we collect will be saved up for setting up a proper shelter / rehabilitation home for stray animals with proper medical and other facilities which will be provided free to people.
We call it Angel's fund firstly, becoz its an angel's job to look out for the many creations of God. Secondly, becoz our first documented rescue ( Angel ) has taken over to be the mother of the puppies we have in our care. She watches over them and treats them like her own children - which we think is also a reason that she teaches them all the naughty things she does herself.
Its a request to all animal lovers to kindly donate in whichever way they can so we can take better care of the lovelies we have already and to enable us to take care of other animals as well.
Brief of expenses:
For our rescue / vaccination / sterilization activities, our monthly expenditure is close to Rs. 50,000
Rescue of injured animals / Vaccination drives - Rs. 30,000 (includes transportation costs )
Sterilization - between Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 20,000 depending on how many animals we can capture and sterilize monthly.
Upkeep of our temporary shelter + food for the animals - Rs. 30,000 monthly. This does not include the payment for specialized staff / services that is hired on a as and when required basis eg. specialized medical equipment, trainers for behavior control, rehabilitation equipment for paralyzed animals etc.
Our 1st goal is to get a vehicle ( even a used vehicle if not brand new ) to travel to various rescue sites and also to bring back the injured or sick animals to our temporary shelter or take to a specialized clinic whenever required. Thus, saving on transport costs. TATA Ace or similar transport vehicles are what we are looking at.
Our second main goal is to setup a permanent shelter on at least 1 acre of land, so that we can accommodate more animals and have different zones for housing and play area specially for different species that have some trouble staying together eg. cats dogs, pigs, ponies etc. Due to these limitations we are forced to pay for keeping these animals in various private animal facilities. Govt. facilities are not always the first choice as they are notorious disease hotspots so we try to find kennels or any other facility for them. Getting a place for a commercial venture is very easy but getting a place for animal shelter is difficult as most of the landlords dont look on such activities positively. So we want to purchase the land in the organizations name or get a long term lease at least.We have already shortlisted a few places on the city's outskirts and depending on the resources we can generate we will make the final call.
Specialized equipment like surgical equipment and machinery, imaging equipment like x-ray, MRI scanners are also on our list of things to get for the shelter.
That is why we need as much support as possible to help us make better the lives of animals in need.
