Another aspect that is extremely critical to help ailing dogs recover is food, and most sick dogs that come to us have a weak appetite, which is why we make sure to have all kinds of food options available to suit their palettes. Then there are dogs that need special prescription diets and all of that makes food a very costly component in ET. However, we have only seen successes with good food, and hence we have never denied any animal what he/she needs to get better.
And lastly, it is important to make changes to the ET farms with every new season coming in. That makes us spend a lot on different items to keep the dogs comfortable with new changes in weather that each season brings with itself. This winter, we have tried something new to keep the dogs warm, as our electricity set-up doesn't allow us to use conventional heating methods to keep the dogs warm. The 'Angeethis' keep our dogs warm each night in their soft-cozy beds and we have to buy almost 40 kg fuel each day to keep the Angeethis burning.
We have deliberated a lot, and with so much of pressure from our vendors, it has become increasingly difficult for us to expose ourselves, our dogs and our staff to such financial distress. We really want to help more animals and it is a shame that this road-block is preventing us from running our shelter at full-capacity. Despite having a space to accommodate over 200 animals, we are barely managing to keep our 125 residents happy. We need your help because what we want to do and the way we want to do it, completely depends on you and your help.
