Supporting the welfare of 47 rescued dogs

I am Preema Mendez. 37 year old.  A Tesco employee. I have been rescuing dogs since 2003. Today I live with 47 of them in my place in Horamavu, in northeast Bengaluru. I have been doing this for past 11 years and been depending only on my salary and frequent support from my friends.

My first rescue - Beta, an old Pomeranian dog

One day on my way to the office, I found an old Pomeranian dog near a bar. I noticed that she was visibly weak. Wary that my housing society may create an issue if they found out,  I smuggled her into my apartment. After observing that her condition didn’t improve, I admitted her to a veterinary hospital. While the doctor said chances of survival were limited, she recovered. Beta returned to stay with me until she breathed her last three years later. She was my first rescue. 

How can you help? 

With the increase in the number of dogs and 5 of them being sick, I have been struggling to make ends meet. Handling the feeding and medical expenses all by myself has been extremely difficult. These 47 dogs are my family and I am trying to my best to keep them happy and provide them all that they deserve.

What do I plan to do with the funds?

The priority will be get immediate medical attention to the 5 puppies and sick dog. Also the remaining amount will help me buy enough food for all 47 of them. Currently, I am spending 50-60k per month for food alone.

FAQs

1. How do I know that you are Genuine?
I am doing the rescue and rehoming of stray and abandoned dogs from past 11 years. My work was featured in a couple of magazines and News 9. My Facebook account is Amee Mendez and my dogs got a page under Amee's Angels.

2. What exactly are doing with these dogs?
I rescue them, give them medical support and try to get them adopted to good families. Before adoption, I make sure to neuter/spay them.

3. What is the benefit you will get from doing this?
I started off this as a passion but now this is my family. I do not intent to have any monetary benefits from this. I am unable to take care of the expenses all by myself and I am looking out for support to keep these animals safe and happy.

4. Why are you not registered as NGO or a part of an NGO?
I am a single person started this as a passion and now it is my family. I still do not have that much of support (financially and physically) to start it as an NGO. Not wanting to be a part of any NGO was a personal decision.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your love and support. This couldn't have been possible without you.

It gives me immense pleasure in informing you all that we've managed to rescue another 30 dogs. Some have even been adopted. Unfortunately there was a fire in our previous shelter and we had to get a new setup altogether. We currently have a centre now, which is bigger than the previous home we were staying in. We also have about 3 dogs with tumor.

We will be rescuing another 3-4 dogs this week and take care of them. We're now working on building a better infrastructure to help the dogs live in a safe place.

Thank you so much everyone. We will forever be indebted to you.
