"Help me reach my forever home in the US" - Meher



“Hi friends!! I’m bursting with excitement! 9th of March was a very special day for me. I found out I've officially been adopted! For all those negative people that believed I should be put down or that nobody would want a blind indie, well.. all I can say is look at me now! I’m currently with a beautiful foster family and soon I will be flying to my forever home in the USA! I feel so loved, so lucky and blessed to have this miracle family that want to make me theirs. I know I'll be loved for the rest of my life.
My didi has made this campaign to raise funds for my travel. It will be impossible for me to reach my new home without your support. I would love for you to be a part of my magical story by contributing for my upcoming trip!"
Lots of love,
Meher

My story: 12th Feb 2018. The day my rescuer pulled me out of the hospital after all blunder happened in my case. 

I am Meher, a born blind desi. I was admitted at the animal hospital because the people where I used to live thought doctors will do the eye transplant and I will be able to see. But it didn't turn out to be a good experience. I was unfortunately relocated and dropped off near a garbage pit. I was full of ticks and fleas and smelled garbage. I have almost forgotten that someone tossed me and that I was so very hungry and thirsty. I lost my precious fur due to the mites and low immunity. My platelets were extremely low due to all the ticks and fleas. I am still under medication and recovering very well. My blindness was the least of my worries and then, by a miracle, I was rescued and bam! I now have my forever family!! I am currently living with my foster family in Mumbai and will be soon flying to USA♡



This is how we are moving forward: 

The time will pass by quickly!! My didi will be sending me through a pet relocation agency in Mumbai to avoid any unnecessary problems later. She wants this to happen very smoothly for me.

Vini: the rescuer 
4th Feb 2019 - the day we met! 
Vini is an independent animal rescuer and ardent animal lover from Mumbai who found me sitting in the corner of the cage at the hospital. She just couldn't move away from my cage, The moment she saw me she wanted to take me out but due to lack of resources she couldn't. She posted for me on social media & groups but didn't get any response. She's had sleepless nights thinking about me. I know she was trying hard for me,I know. She promised me she will pull me out. Due to some emergency she couldn't followup on me for few days which is when due to negligence I was dropped off at a unknown place. The ambulance driver told her that I was left at my usual location, she went and searched the entire location asking so many people about me but no clue. This is when AAC interfered and reached out to higher authority,I was brought back in no time!
She immediately took me home with her. Cleaned me, removed my ticks and fleas, gave me a bath. Since thn she is always around and takes care of my vet visits and everything else. 
She loves me crazy and can do anything for me. 
If it was not these people no one would have ever known what happened to me!

Pete, jill, bubs& hazel: The forever family
My beautiful family lives in northern Virginia/DC. My dad is a area manager for chipotle and mum is a school teacher.
 

Both my brother and sister  are rescues with difficult pasts. Bubs was a surrender to a high kill shelter in Kansas. He had only a day or so before being euthanized when my parents found each other. Hazel’s owner was never nice to her and kept her inside most times. She was a recluse with MS. She passed away inside the house and Hazel was locked up with the body for over a week before the neighbors found her!!!
I am so happy I am going to this beautiful family who believe in saving lives! 
TRULY BLESSED!

Well,everyone, it's official!!  

Meher's flight is booked!! So many thanks to give everyone involved in this inspiring process so far.
We have to give a very special thank you to kathleen & Kevin. Probably the trickiest part of this process was finding someone to be Meher’s flight companion. As we struggled to find someone to fly with her, we posted requests for help, as many of you probably know from following her story. Kathleen and Kevin, who have been following this journey, reached out to a friend of theirs in India and, before even letting us know, secured Meher’s travel companion! A big thank you to her travel companion, Sridhar Anand who is doing this trip solely for meher !!!  We don’t know how to adequately express what their selfless act means to us. So, 21 days from today, meher's family will get to hold Meher for the first time and we, in large part, have them to thank for that ❤️
