Help Sajesh to rescue and rehabilitate thousands of injured dogs

Animal Lives Are Important (ALAI) established by Sajesh in May 2017 is a dog rescue and rehabilitation shelter for injured, sick and differently abled dogs located at Bagalur in Bangalore, India. The rescued dogs at ALAI all have had a terrible tale of cruelty and pain but undoubtedly are the most loved and cared for dogs in Bangalore. Receiving emergency calls round -the -clock about dogs suffering from injury, hit-and-run accidents, torture, abuse, canine distemper, differently-abled and abandoned dogs, ALAI has rescued all of them and many more. Most of these dogs have been nurtured to a complete. As part of their protocol, we ensure every dog we rescue is neutered/spayed and is given 9 in 1 vaccination and anti-rabies vaccine.



OUR FOUNDER
ALAI was founded by 31-year-old Sajesh who left his job as a branding assistant manager in a reputed company to pursue his dream to rescue the most neglected of the society - the street animals who are injured and suffering from old age and disabilities. Commencing with just an ambulance in Jan 2017 and a tiny black puppy in hand who was a victim of an acid attack and with no place accepting to take him in, he pushed himself to open a shelter with just 26 cages to accept the most neglected back in Sept 2017. He now has expanded the shelter that accommodates 300+ dogs and some cows. Throughout this journey Skyla, Sajesh’s wife, has been an integral part of the operations at ALAI. Sajesh and Skyla handle the day to day operations at ALAI providing love and care to every single dog.


FUNCTIONING
Coordinate a rescue -The rescues are coordinated on whatsapp & Facebook where rescuers and reporters tag the organization, thereafter which the rescue van and experienced catchers of the organization are sent to the location, the dog is caught mostly by bare hands or in situations of a ferocious dog, they use nets.
Case Record - The dog is then taken to the shelter premises where the in-house veterinary doctors examine the dog and the details of rescue are recorded like the date of pick up, sterilization record, the health issues etc. for further medical treatment
Boarding & Medical Treatment - As part of the medical treatment, every dog is vaccinated with 3 rounds of vaccines and anti-rabies. A blood test is done to all the senior dogs and the ones undergoing surgeries. The dog is then shifted to the appropriate section of the shelter. The shelter is divided into 6 sections each housing distemper dogs, senior dogs, permanent resident dogs, spine injury dogs , treatment dogs & large animals
Rehabilitation & Sterilization- All dogs are kept under the intensive care and supervision of the caretakers and are fed two meals a day. The dogs are examined on a daily basis by the vets and receive appropriate medical treatment to rehabilitate them to a healthy and better life. Every dog undergoes animal birth control surgeries, 2 rounds of 9 in 1 vaccination and
anti-rabies vaccine
Release and Adoptions - If the dog is deemed fit to be released, the dog is dropped back to the pick-up location. However, if the dog is unable to survive on the roads due to the nature of their disabilities or absence of feeders or food, the dog is taken in as a permanent resident at ALAI. Every dog that is rescued by ALAI is neutered and vaccinated prior release or adoption.

NEED OF FUNDS TO SUSTAIN ALAI: 
Currently ALAI rescues 80-100 dogs every month and majority of those are treated, rehabilitated and released back. Around 300 dogs are currently sheltered at ALAI and out of these 70-80 dogs need medical care every single day. ALAI has the shelter & resources for boarding injured dogs and performing the medical treatments, but we cannot do this without financial assistance and that is where kind people like you can play an important role in helping us to sustain our rescues. Our monthly expenses are close to 9 lakh rupees which covers the costs for food, fuel, rent, medicines, vaccination, surgeries, doctor fees, caretaker salaries, etc.



Need for a fully functional operational theater/ surgery room – We are a home to close to 300 animals and one of the biggest challenges that we face is the emergency care. Time is our biggest enemy because for everything we are forced to take our dogs to another place. The biggest dream is to own an x-ray machine to cause the least ofstress to a bone injured animal as currently we travel 20kms one way for just an X-ray and ultrasound which causes immense stress to an animal. Having all medical equipment like X-ray, Electro cautery machine, ultrasound, Lazer therapy, Infra-Red treatment under one roof enables to effectively and efficiently provide treatment to an animal with a holistic approach thus reducing the cost of treatment and travel stress to an injured animal.
 

Every little of your contribution helps ALAI in smooth functioning of the shelter to rescue and rehabilitate effectively and efficiently as many dogs as possible.

Dear Supporters

Hope you all are safe and secure during these tiring times of COVID19..

Our journey has been a roller coaster one ..especially with the increased number of rescues and the shortfall of funds
And to make things worse ,we are forced to shift our shelter to a new location  as our current location has become an unfavourable environment for us to continue due to various reasons.

We are extremely grateful to you all for your unprecedented support during these tough times.

We have found a new place on rent in a near by village which will be our new home for all our rescued animals. We have started with the initial construction and we need your support more than ever.

This is a really tough time for us and we are sure with your love and support we can overcome this as well.
Please do come forward to circulate and share our campaign to help us re-build ALAI shelter .

Here are a few pictures of the new place... the greenery will be maintained 


Do support and share our campaign to help us build a safe home for our rescues.

Dear Donors,

Hope you all in the pink of health.


We would like to inform you that we have rescued 16 dogs in last 6 days and most have been victims of terrible accidents.
We have also initiated a withdrawal of some amount from this campaign towards the medical bills ,X-rays ,blood tests and mainly orthopedic surgeries. And today these dogs have been saved and are able to live just because of your support for which we cannot thank you enough.

Due to the corona virus scare there have been a surge in home pets being abandoned in Bangalore and latest we have received at our center is an adorable GSD in skin & bones, Dobbie with terrible seizures & tick fever & a pom with terrible bites marks on the body





We request your kind support to help share our campaign further to help us reach our goal. Every time you share the post, you increase the chances of us receiving the much needed help for our rescues.

Dear Donors,

Thank you for your incredible support during these difficult time.
Please do stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis and we wish you the best of health

Last few days have been very tough with no less than 30 odd rescues and the traffic and heavy rain at Bangalore is adding on more to the difficulty.
We would like to inform you in-spite of lock-downs and restrictions in Bangalore, we continue to do our bit in saving the lives of the street animals. The animals need us.

Our latest rescue has been a adult cow named Radha . We rescued Radha when someone informed that she suffers from severe seizures and was being sold to the slaughterhouse as her milk too is not drinkable due to the heavy medication they had kept her under for years.
Radha will be a permanent resident at ALAI along with her other rescued and mobility impaired  cows calves sheep and goat friends



With heavy rain everyday and increasing rescues, there has been very less roofing to protect our animals so we have initiated a small fund withdrawal to help us construct few sheds.All this has been possible because of your generous support.

Please do continue sharing our campaign to help lessen our burden and increase the happiness in our rescued animals.

Thank you for your support
