They depend on villagers for their food. But at the beginning of lockdown, I realised that when the villagers barely have food for themselves what will they feed dogs. So I started my solo crusade of feeding dogs every alternate morning. The numbers grew from 5 to 15 to 25. New faces entered and old ones disappeared.
So with the help of Dogs of Delhi (DoD), Neighbourhood Woof and People for Animal Ghaziabad (PFA), I am conducting a sterilisation drive to help the dogs and their humans live a happy life of coexistence. With the help of village adults and kids, I pick up dogs. For some I call PFA for helo with catching them. With everyone's help have sterilized 15 dogs till now and are hoping to sterilize 21 more.
I have funded all this, from their feeding to sterilisations till now, from my pocket. But there are more dogs who need help and for that I need your help funds. Each dog's sterilisation costs Rs 1000. Plus Rs 600 goes to DoD for each pick up. Sterilisation with the help of catchers from PFA costs Rs 1500. Sterilisation through Friendicoes has cost me Rs 1200 per dog. Plus the treatment of the tumour dog and maggots cases has in total cost me Rs 4000. Rounding off everything and exlcusing the amount I can bear from my income, I wish to raise Rs. 30,000.
