Last year when there was lockdown and everything was shut down, no vets were available, I saw one of my college campus dog die of distemper. She died horribly. She couldn't sleep, she was biting herself, she couldn't sit; if standing, she fell down. It was a death that no one can imagine and I couldn't sleep for many weeks after that.
All students left hostel and went home in March when lockdown was announced. But I was there, watching other dogs starving as everything was just shut.
No hotels, canteens or people around.
I saw them eating dead carcases of rats. Many fell ill. Since then I decided to be their help.
I decided to feed them, I am feeding them since then. Also if ill, I pick them up, take to hospital for treatment. I have treated many dogs with different cases since then. I admit them to private hospitals for best possible treatment. Initially students helped me to feed them, but slowly they were not agreeing with the right idea of donating every month and stepped back.
By the month of April, there was distemper wave in my campus and 12-13 dogs died of distemper inspite of trying to treat them for 2 months.
I could save only one adult dog.
Then I decided to vaccinate and sterilize them all.
Slowly I opened up my Instagram page and with help of other animal activists and NGOs I sterilized 48 dogs including outside the campus.
And so with very little donations through my page I continued treating sick dogs and feeding them twice a week from daily feeding since March by January when the covid cases went down and hotels opened.
But now, in 2021everything is again shut. I didn't go home whole 2020 to feed and treat sick dogs in but this year I came home as my mother needed me.
But I hired people for feeding and they charge me at 35 rupees per meal per dog. Means rupees 1050 rupees per month per dog. Now i am feeding 24 dogs and approximately 25 thousand rupees bill was made. This huge amount I am struggling to pay. If I am not able to pay this amount, then I can't continue feeding them in lockdown.
Nobody sees their pain because they can't speak. They have emotions, they feel hungry, exhausted, and depressed to see no humans around and empty streets.
Please help me feed them🙏
I am not able to sleep properly because of the thought that if I am not able to pay the bill then what will happen.
I started with 17 dogs as I had less money to give it a start.
Now feeding 24 dogs.
Please help me feed them please 🙏
I can provide with each and every bill and photos and videos.
Help me keep them alive... 💔
