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.

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!

Dearest Donors,

I am happy to inform you that SMART is inaugurating the Sanctuary you all helped built today, i.e. August 14' 2019.
All of you are cordially invited. Those who are unable to come can check the videos and pictures on our Facebook Page www.facebook.com/smartsanctuary.

We have a new permanent resident I would like to introduce to all of you. She is "Kaveri Kaamdhenu", our First Blind Cow.
Check her beautiful images at:
https://www.facebook.com/SMARTSANCTUARY/posts/415405702407878

We have also admitted 6 new Paralyzed dogs who are a victim of road rash and are under treatment at SMART. We are only able to change lives with the help from all of you.

With the rains hitting us hard mid construction our time increased by a couple of weeks resulting in extra labor charges and expensive bricks and cement. However, we have been able to complete the living quarters of our Special Rescues.

The Ambulance is getting ready as we speak. The insurance papers have been attached here for your reference.

A portable Xray Machine, an ultrasound machine and a diesel generator to support the treatment center have been ordered. We have attached the models we have purchased for your reference.
Please stay connected and visit us whenever you can.
