Hello Fellow Givers,

I've been brought up by a simple, god fearing and nature loving family. Raised in an armed forces household, I was always taught to love and respect fellow beings, especially the ones who couldn't fight for themselves or express their needs & challenges in life. Case in point, are these two stray pups (profile pic) playing innocently despite no shelter, food or caregiver in sight. One of them unfortunately lost its way and most likely has passed on. There are countless more out there, struggling, just waiting for a helping hand.

I see a lot of hate, apathy and insensitivity towards stray animals in our society today and its baffling and hurtful to see that we humans have the ability to be so cruel and careless towards other living beings. To help bring about a semblance of change in this attitude, I feel its necessary to make examples and educate the unoriented and hence I've arrived at a commercial model I'm convinced would help tackle the issue of animal aid whilst also providing guidance and knowledge to members of the society who're reluctant to notice and care.

I intend on setting up a care & rehabilitation center for stray animals in need with the help of a team that believes in rehabilitating, preserving and protecting animals in need. This center would be a legal entity and operate under a self sustenance business model wherein a balance between voluntary assistance and earned assistance would be maintained. The plan is to rescue abandoned, injured and needy animals and host them at the center until they attain full health and then assist in the relocation and rehabilitation of such animals. In order to sustain such an operation, while we would obviously invite donations and voluntary service from animal lovers, we would not singularly depend on that. On a parallel level, we would use the center as a full time pet & animal veterinary clinic where we would offer medical services & products at reasonable prices as compared to other options that exist currently. 

Additionally, we would also offer pet boarding, grooming and training services at reasonable prices and together these paid services will help generate a regular stream of income which would be used to sustain and support the voluntary services side of the center, as well as take care of all the salaries and administrative expenses of the center. The books of accounts of the center will be properly maintained, audited and filed with the necessary authorities regularly. Donors would have full access to the facilities in order to validate the operation as well as volunteer themselves.

Following is how the money would be invested for the first 6 months:

1) Registration & Basic Infrastructure Set up - Rs.12,00,000
2) Medical Equipment (Non-Surgical) - Rs.6,00,000
3) Rescue Vehicle (Second Hand) - Rs.5,00,000
4) Rescue & Rehabilitation Staff Salaries - Rs.7,00,000

I am aware that I'm asking you to put your faith in me, a person you may or may not know personally, but I assure you that my intentions are genuine and I would be more than happy to discuss my plans in more detail whenever and wherever required by anyone.
