Kinauni is a small village stuck in a rapidly urbanizing area of Indirapuram in Ghaziabad. I live right on the border of Kinauni and have been unfortunately privy to the screams of dogs at night. I don't know if it is a fight for territory or if they are being abused. I do know that they get injured constantly, they starve due to lack of food and the weak ones are pushed off to the main road where they die under cars.

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.

Sterilisation is the most humane way of controlling dog population. It saves puppies from dying tragic deaths on roads, reduces conflict over food, and increases resource share per dog. I started sterilizing the dogs I fed on the road. Slowly villagers approached me to help sterilize their street pets. They narrated heartbreaking stories of the puppies dying, of their beloved dogs disappearing and of the agony of seeing their lives.

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.
