Key Activities of the club:
Daily Feeding: Volunteers from all the hostels (MDC, LVH, NH, WH, OH, and FH) take turns to ensure that all dogs and cats are fed daily.
Medical Care: The group has tied up with multiple veterinary doctors and handlers who come to campus for the medical care of injured or sick animals. Most recently the club saved a civet’s life by collaborating with the Forest & Wildlife Dept. of West Bengal.
Animal Birth Control: Neutering drives are conducted monthly in collaboration with a local NGO, Love n Care for Animals, to prevent the proliferation of animals on campus.
Adoption Drives: The PR Team handling the FB, Insta, and other accounts tries throughout the year to find loving & caring homes for the stray animals. The campaigns are treated like live projects by the volunteers to hone their marketing skills. 20+ strays were adopted through our campaigns in the first 6 months. A separate marketing budget is allocated for this.
Vaccination Drives: The vaccination drives cover all the dogs on campus against rabies and distemper and thus ensuring a safe environment for all the residents of the campus.
Crowd-funding: All the above activities of PetPals are financed through crowd-funding initiatives. The group reaches out to corporates, students, faculty, social media followers, friends, and family for raising funds.
