Help Us Build A Forever Home for Special Needs Dogs!



Sophie Memorial Animal Relief Trust: A sanctuary for old and disabled dogs. 

We are a special needs rescue that focuses on old and dogs with all kinds of disabilities. Old and disabled dogs face a brutal and tough life on our streets. We plan to make a forever home where these voiceless can spend their life happily. Only you can help us do it!

From neurological issues and spinal injuries to paralysis and mobility issues, we rescue and shelter them all. Dogs who come to us are evaluated by specialists and started on whatever therapy is needed, be it hydrotherapy, acupuncture or good old fashioned physical therapy to help them recover. Even the worst of the cases are given a second chance at a happy, healthy life! These dogs may be broken in body, but not in spirit and they all deserve as much chance to live a happy and abundant life as us.





We had been trying to make a forever home for these Special Dogs and were focused on finding a land most suitable for building a forever home for Dogs with Disabilities. We were limited by either very expensive land, resources or the climate being too cold, too hot or too humid. And our prayers were answered when a local Real Estate Dealer offered us 4 Bighas to build the Sanctuary.
Currently, we rent the place where these special dogs reside and face problems of being flooded, or being bitten by poisonous reptiles. This campaign is a first step towards building the forever home for special needs dogs. We will begin by fencing the land. Once fencing is complete construction of Eco Kennels will be started.

Dearest Benefactors,

A very happy and prosperous Diwali to all of you. Thanks to all of you our rescues have a roof on their head which they can safely call a home.

Brad- The blind Pit Bull
Jewar- The Pup Recovering From Paralysis
Bhoora- The 14 year old who was stabbed. Now with us.
Alita- The pup who lost her toes to a train

We all had a safe and beautiful Diwali as we had you all by our side. Thank You so much for being a part of our journey to change lives!

We are making another withdrawal to pay for staff salaries, pending diagnostic, electricity and water bills. We are also starting in house sterilization camp and plan to spay 35 in house rescues and 15 more community dogs in the month of November. The approximate expense per dog is INR 2150 including the surgery, transport and 7 days post operative care.

We will continue changing lives with your blessings and support.

The funds we are withdrawing today are for registration of the Ambulance you all helped us buy and for paying the dues of the construction Labor still working at the Sanctuary making it a better palace each passing day. We are making new enclosures as more and more voiceless rely on us

Please visit SMART Sanctuary whenever you are in Greater Noida. SMART Furries would be delighted to meet you!

Hi All,
Thank you all so much for the support!

I’ve attached a short thank you video here. A major part of the funds raised here have been utilized for the construction, buying the ambulance (and it's insurance) and for operational expenses to keep the shelter going. (Please refer previous updates).
Since the ambulance has been purchased, more than 150 animals have been rescued. This includes dogs, monkeys and even snakes.

A lot of you have been wanting to know about further plans and wanting to contribute. It’s been a dream of mine to open a multispeciality hospital for pets that’s operated at zero cost. Lots of times, I’ve seen people struggle to afford medical expenses for their pets. I myself spend over Rs 3000 to run a blood panel test. A free multi-speciality hospital that can provide quality care to people’s pets would be a dream of mine.

I will keep you posted on our rescues. Once again, a big Thank You All to everyone- this would not have been possible without you!
