Help Cherai Tails Stay Afloat

We are a small family run by one human service provider from her rented home. We evolved over the last 2 years and our family welcomes new pups in need, we are fed , vaccinated, sterilized and loved for who we are here. Each character has their own needs, and Peshna acts as match maker trying to find adopters who will want us for life, and who can provide what we need to be happy!
Our home with no cages was built on donations and we continue to rely completely on those who wish to help, who care that we live and love to see our tails wag.
Most of us come from Cherai beach where dogs are regularly dumped, many of us are healthy as Cherai Tails feeds moms to be, and pups.
We moved here in October and there is some work we need done so that we can mange through the hottest months & the monsoon.
With the current Covid 19 emergency there are no tourists on the beach and food is already scarce, so this monsoon will be harder then most and more dogs will need support.

At the moment there is a sense of urgency as covid 19 sees less people working and I am very limited with FEW workers being willing to work with the dogs. The ones we use have lots of work as everyone wants all their work done before the monsoon.

I have broken the work down into 5 projects each costs Rs 5000. I have given him the first 5000 and he has done a days work. So far the expenses have been Rs 1900 on materials and Rs 850 on labour. There is another day on the finer details of the netting and the cement work so anther Rs 850. -

Project 1 Rs 5000  Rat/Snake protection.1. Wire net blocking the gap between the corrugated roof and ceiling so that rats cant come in and play as they have been every night.
2. Wire wool filling all gaps in the ceiling and walls to prevent rats moving in.
3. Placing snake netting along the night shelters fences where snakes have been seen to commute...covering the same with broken terracotta roof tiles bought second hand.
Project 2. Rs 5000 We have pallet furniture  that we need moved here. Rs 1500.
The furniture will be placed on tyres to give it height for flooding.  There is a 1.5m wide bench and 2 seats plus a double bed.
We will use plastic coated wire netting to make dome like roofs over these and cover with plastic sheeting. So to form polytunnel like structures. (larger Barney Bennett's)  we shall also cover the Barney Bennets we have and lift these on tyres forming tunnels that the pups and dogs may run through!!!
  Project 3 Rs 5000- Monsoon and Extreme heat protection for the puppy run at tails.
1. Retractable plastic sheeting that provides shade during the hottest months Apriil/May and shelter from the rain.
2. Guttering that helps reduce the flooding from heavy showers by moving the water away from the area that falls on the roof and sheeting.

Project 4 & 5 Rs 5000 each Rs 10,000 Lifting the ground.level to provide non boggy areas in rain for 3 girls.

The impact of this will mean that the dogs have a relatively dust free area throughout the year which will really help with injuries and when recouping from sterilization. Use cement 4 inch blocks to set in the ground with drainage to allow the dogs to be able to move out of their sleeping sheets without swimming in mud,Each block costs Rs 32 we shall need over 180 for the girls area plus the porous underlay and labour...so over Rs 5000.
Same for the smaller area for Polo and Bella outside kitchen.
--For the areas together we'll need 260 blocks.This is only being done in the smaller night shelters and will have the added advantage of reducing the likelihood of snakes.

Last year Cherai Tails helped over 45 dogs we dont do large numbers ..I can't there's only me. BUT each of ours are individuals, they are allowed to be themselves loved and only passed to homes that have no cages and appear to offer the opportunity of a happy life. We are essentially a match making service and we check on our adoptees. They only go when sterilized and fully vaccinated male and female.

Every paisa helps - THANK YOU.

Hi All,
Ginger has been homed..and really it's a fairy tale ending. she is living with a young man who works from home, adores her is used to having a tail as part of the family. Sleeps inside with himself and has the run of the property including a terrace. So Her prince arrived and Ginger has finally been installed as the lady of the household!
Back here Polo has been particularly impacted by Gingers going as part of her daily routine was to annoy Ginger.

This month we have Chicku, at Nila Home Stay, Melinda, Peru, Panama and Serb to vaccinate (Rs 500 each plus vet nurse fee) also we will set a date hopefully for Scarlett, Jack, Chicku and Blanche to be sterilized. I am still not sure if Melinda will be looked after properly after the op but she too is a possibility.

Gheldof has settled well in his new home and is happy.  We are assisting Trix's owner's setting ideal but getting them to train her in is the issue.

Obama & Olive are still itching and although Obama has an issue with his paw still it is better. Ricketts doesn't stop Obama attempting to bully Blondie!!!

The pups aren't white, Here Obama and Olive had no tic powder. Polo is not as patient as she might be but won't be outdone by Blondie.
They eat really well and are still on puppy milk powder plus added calcium. At the vets now as we need to go onto the next stage of skin treatment. Olive has next to no fur and Obama is all yellow scabs.  They have won our hearts though Obama is not afraid at Polo barking at him, which did not help her self esteem and they both let it be known when they want attention, food, and company even at midnight!!!

Dear Supporters,

Little Olive looking after her brother sleepy Obama.  These 2 joined us on independence day with their brother Olli, who sadly was to weak for us to help. Severely undernourished & full of maggots they spent all their time eating and sleeping for the first 3 days..(drawing the maggots out really tormented the poor babies).They are really eating well, have the energy to play and have a few fights and have made friends with Polo, who is still a little scared of her new babies & Blondie. Their coats are in a state and they are still losing skin BUT both only have one small open wound left.
What we are worried about now is their little paws, pictured here by their rescuers,
and their mobility which this video shows.... Obama

I have sent them to Felican hoping they would xray and do a blood test but they were adamant its rickets and have prescribed calcium and Vit D supplement, they are young we shall see if this has an impact in the next 2 weeks...while their bones are growing and soft I am sure we can prevent/minimize any long term mobility issues.

Hi All,

Krishna has been feeding the beach dogs. Melinda gave birth while I was in the hospital. We have since found out that someone took her pup far too young. However, all is not lost she has adopted this little fellow and has moved into the home!!! obviously feeding him too.

The family who owns the white pup has befriended Krish and we are hoping that they will have the pup vaccinated and sterilized when we have Melinda done. We will worm them this week.

Scarlett is good no new pics but there is this glorious video. and I still need to recover some before I can go with her to the vet and see if we can assist her mobility. Geldof goes to his new home Saturday.
+ Here giving Trix a kiss.
The 2 dogs Kathleen feeds have both been fully vaccinated and now our 3 Peru, Serb and Panama are due too. We plan to have Melinda, Blanche, and Kathleens 2 sterilized within the month Dusty may already be pregnant so we will have to wait with her.

Thank you.
