Story

FOAM Tyson - A sanctuary for Injured, Old, Abandoned and Disabled animals (dogs, cats, bulls, horses, birds, squirrels etc).
#Ramu #Bommi #Kutty #Mani

This is how it all began:
I, Prabhakaran Nagarajan (known as Karan Rajan), started feeding the stray dogs at first near-by my house during school days. Later it continued as a feeder till when I started my job in Chennai. On one unfortunate day, when I came to my native on a vacation - one of my stray dogs which I/my family fed everyday met with an accident, I took him to couple of hospitals to treat & save him. Unfortunately, he left the world and we buried in him in our backyard.

Beginning of FOAM:
After seeing his lifeless body in my hand, I felt to do more for these stray/voiceless beings - I quit the job and started a Rescue Operation in his name TYSON in 2015. With the help of many volunteers, we rescued and rehabilitated numerous animals. Started with Dogs, then expanded to Cats, Horses, Bulls (saved from Slaughter houses), Snakes (yes - you read it right, SNAKES), Birds, Squirrels etc. And registered our team as an NGO with the name - FOAM Tyson (Friends of Animals Madurai) in 2016.

Took FOAM to the next level:
For first couple of years of rescuing the dogs, cats - I used our home and friend's home as a temporary place for the treatments. And realized it is a MUST to have a place for these kids. To build a forever home for these animals is not the simple task - from my own experience. I was limited by either very expensive land or resources (care taker, food, rent $$$ etc). We got a temporary Rental place in Madurai for Rs.16000/month and fenced (cost around Rs. 50,000) the whole place to keep these dogs safe.
Rescued animals with neurological issues and spinal injuries to paralysis, Blind and mobility issues, we rescue and shelter them all. Not just the rescue, we also evaluate their conditions by specialists and started appropriate treatments as well according to the Vet's. With God's grace and few people's help, many of these animals were given a second chance to live a healthy, happy life as they all deserved.

I spend almost 50-60k INR every month for FOAM, out of which most of it is paid from my own pocket. Despite my financial challenges, I never gave up on these activities and love towards the animals.

At present there are 70+ stray animals with us including 50+ dogs, 15 cats, 2 cows. Among which 40+ sick/injured dogs are in our rented shelter, 10+ healthy dogs in our home area, 3 of them in our house itself. 15+ cats sharing the same roof along with 3 dogs in our house. Daily feeds for 100+ birds for 3 times a day.


Got Appreciated:
FOAM Stories have been posted in the newspapers and received a Best Humanitarian award in 2019.

At FOAM, we often conduct free Campaign for Stray dogs vaccination and sterilization.  


Why this Fundraiser:
Leased a place to keep the abandoned, injured, old, sick dogs in Madurai. Few kind hearted people helped to build fence and provide some dog food. And now that the lease is over, after few struggles one kind hearted friend and his family offered me a farm with minimal rent (Rs. 10,000). This Place is going to be a Forever Happy Permanent home for disabled, sick and aged dogs.

Even a single penny will count in making someone's Live's much better. This fundraiser is to build a home, fence for these dogs (and many in future) in this newly Rented place -

Future FOAM - our dream:
Our dream is to build a FOAM Resident Hospital in our OWN FARM land to rescue, save as many animals as possible. And open this Disney-land to the public to show how kind these animals are and what they expect from us (humans). Planning to have school excursions to show the children at the young age itself to treat animals (not just animals - but every living thing) right.

Please share this story and contribute towards bringing joy to these kids. Without your help, it wouldn't be possible at all to come this far - A very BIG THANK YOU for all those who have trusted and supported us so far in this journey and hope to continue the same in future.

For many years, my Parents have been kind to all animals and tutored me and my brothers the same - "Every living being has a soul - respect it and its rights in this earth to live freely, safely and most importantly without starvation".
