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 Donors,

Thank You so much for your overwhelming support. With your help the construction of SMART Sanctuary is in rapid progress.
We are under Tick Fever epidemic and out of 67 residents, 45 have been tested positive. Treatment for all has been started.
We need to pay INR 139500 to the vet for blood work, medicines, supplements and food for the month of June & July.
The bills from the clinic are attached for  your reference.






You have helped us not only raise adequate funds for building the Sanctuary but also to run a free Rescue Van service for all animals in Greater Noida. The leftover funds shall be used to care our existing 60 plus rescues and to rehabilitate the needy ones. We also plan to open a first aid center in Greater Noida West as there is no service for ailing animals in that area. Please keep sharing the word and help us make a real difference!

Hi All,

Thank you so much for your overwhelming response to our appeal to build a permanent home for our 60 special need dogs. To have received your blessings, trust and support; we are confident to have the home ready in time. I would also like to thank and express my gratitude to all those which reached out to us wanting to do more and support SMART Santurary.

In line with this, SMART Sanctuary has proposed a project very dear to my heart, SMART Mobile Clinic, "Taking Animal Welfare To Community".  
There are animals who are too vulnerable and sick with no one to take them to the vet for treatment. No animal should be denied humanity, making it extremely necessary to bring medical facilities to the streets!

(Letter detailing the project and expenses involved)




The overall cost of the project is expected to be Rs 20 Lakhs. Please also find below the quotation for the cost of the ambulance. Hence, the target of the campaign is being increased to bring to fruition this project.
