I would like to initiate this campaign on behalf of ALAI to help them pay for the medical expenses incurred to treat the so many of their rescues.
The ALAI team has always been so prompt in attending to issues and leave no stone unturned to help their rescues.
If you have been wondering how you could do your bit to help them, let's consider pitching in to pay for the medical expenses.
Below are the details you might want to know about ALAI, from ALAI -
We rescue sick and injured street dogs, provide them medical treatment in our shelter to be rehabilitated back to where they came from. Few dogs however, due to the severe nature of injury/ailment, could not be released back and hence have become a permanent member of our shelter to the tune of 85+ dogs,who roam freely in the shelter premises. Our shelter & day-to-day rescue operations are funded by a countable group of volunteers cum donors who have seen our work on a day to day basis.
Started 2 years ago when we were rescuing injured dogs back to back; carrying them to nearby vet clinics, waiting hours together for getting help on transport and reaching out to existing shelters for space & post-operative care (We had no shelter, no rescue van, and rescues were completely self-funded). Determined to save as many dogs, with limited resources and increasing number of sick and injured dogs, we felt the need to speed up the rescue process by having a shelter of our own with basic amenities. Through networking, we were able to connect with some wonderful dedicated people, now the pillars of ALAI, who have helped us financially and stood by us in our difficult times to materialise our dream of building a shelter to accommodate 25-30 dogs by mid-2017. We are blessed to have such a dedicated group of people supporting us.
What we have and do today:
We have expanded our shelter which now is filled with wagging tails and wet noses of 125 dogs. We run 2 ambulances & our team consists of 2 drivers, 7 care takers, a visiting Vet and we house about 110 dogs at any given point of time. We rescue anywhere between 70 to 90 injured street dogs every month and this number has been growing.
Besides helping us in rescue process, our key volunteers have been instrumental in arranging venues free of cost, which has enabled us to conduct 4 free vaccination camps in the last 1 year. We plan to have these camps every year - on hope to keep our streeties safe from diseases.
The recurring donations we receive from our volunteer group help cover a portion of our ~3.9 Lakhs monthly expenses currently, though we are deficit by a huge margin every month.
Ranging from accident cases to blind, sick, old, spine injured, tumour burst dogs, we have nurtured these ailing dogs to a complete recovery by providing them the necessary aid & assistance. We do not cage our dogs (except for occasional extreme-trouble-maker J) which helps them to be more responsive to our treatment under least stressful conditions.
We have had amazing recoveries in our shelter which is the greatest factor towards our dedication and devotion of our lives towards animals.

Our pages also holds some of the many before-after images of the recoveries)
This FUND REQUEST now is to help to pay off one chunk of the bills for the medical expenses incurred to treat so many of the rescues.
The amount sums up to INR 40,251/-
NOTE: Income tax laws necessitate a welfare organization to complete 3 full years of accounting, before tax-benefit status could be obtained (For us this date would be in 2022).This means that you cannot claim tax benefit for the donation you make to us now. We would appreciate if you could donate to us regardless; keeping in mind our cause and the need of the hour for the animals in distress.
There is so much joy in giving, especially knowing that your bit has helped an animal in need.
Your generosity and kindness will help ALAI to continue the good work that they do for the animals in need.
Like they say ANIMAL LIVES ARE IMPORTANT!
