Help Chennai's Street Dogs: Spay the Strays Chennai

When I came to India two years ago, I was shocked by the massive amount of stray dogs living in my neighborhood.
Seeing these poor souls literally being born into agony - competing for food with other dogs their whole lives and always in risk of car accidents and other dangers - made me so sad and full of pity. For me it was clear that I would focus all my energies on helping them. I started with food and care, but soon realized that this doesn’t solve the main problem - the overpopulation.

Female dogs are fertile at the early age of just six months and give birth twice a year to 4 to 12 puppies per litter, after barely two months of pregnancy. Just do the maths to get a glimpse what this means.

So I changed my efforts to spaying and neutering the dogs, the ONLY method which puts an end to this vicious cycle. Being on my own, I started to organize the spaying of the first dogs privately.

But now it’s getting bigger: My target is to spay and neuter 8 dogs per months.

I will raise the funds for the spaying/neutering and find the dogs (talk to the people that feed the strays and coordinate the pick up with them). I'll pick the dogs up for surgery and drop them off in the same place after the surgery and a couple days of recovery. I follow up on each and every dog for some weeks after surgery to make sure they are doing fine after the procedure.

Currently the surgeries are performed at Paws and Claws Pet clinic in T. Nagar, Chennai, India.

Please help and support us to make our dream come true - helping the ones that can’t help themselves. A better future for India’s stray dogs.

You can contribute with your donations! Also any information on dogs that need to be spayed and neutered in Chennai alongside ECR Injambakkam, Besant Nagar and near locations is extremely helpful.

Here are the costs of the surgeries and vaccinations:

- Spaying/Neutering for 1 dog without vaccination: 2800 INR

- Spaying/Neutering for 1 dog with vaccination: 3200 INR

- Vaccination (Dhppi): 400 INR

I will provide pictures or videos of the spayed or neutered dog. I will also provide invoices and vaccination cards.

PS, The dog on my campaign pic is "Boo". She is the first dog that I took for spaying.

Lots of love

Dear Donors of my campaign,

Thank you so much again for your help for the poor stray dogs of Chennai. You changed the lives of these dogs forever! They can live a better life now thanks to you. And you also saved hundreds of puppy lives with your donation. I can’t thank you enough for it!

As I am leaving Chennai end of April, I will close my milaap campaign for now.
But of course I would love to see my project continue and I am currently working on that with my friends here in Chennai. I hope I can restart the campaign soon with someone of my friends, who will continue Spay the Strays Chennai.

I hope I myself can also continue with this kind of  work in my new home in Korea, helping the strays (probably stray cats) there. I will keep you updated.

Last but not least:
Here are some numbers about my campaign and my work in Chennai:

I have spayed and neutered 59 dogs with Spay the Strays Chennai.

Plus 30 cats and dogs before STSC.

Altogether I managed to spay and neuter 89 dogs and cats within 1 year of time.

Thanks so much to all who made this happen!

Warm regards
Julia
