These are the following areas in which we currently need help -
1. Feeding: With close to 80 dogs and 4 cats to look after, the food bill is huge. It costs us close to Rs. 500 to feed one dog for an entire month. We feed the cats Whiskas Gravy food. The dogs are fed one healthy meal in the morning which consists of Rice and Chicken. We supplement it with Dry food in the evening to help them go through the day.
2. Sterilization: We sterilize close to 20 dogs, on an average, every week. Since May of last year, we've sterilized 720 dogs in Indirapuram, 54 dogs in Dadri and Greater Noida and 35 dogs in Noida Sector 62. Sterilization is most probably the costliest animal welfare activity with each spay/neuter costing Rs. 1500 and Rs. 3500 in private clinics. Needless to say, sterilization is the only way we can ensure a safe life for our animals on the streets.
3. Vaccination: We have vaccinated over 150 puppies in Indirapuram since May of last year. We vaccinated them against the deadly Parvo/Distemper and Rabies. These puppies, when they become of age, are also sterilized to avoid unnecessary litters on the street.
4. Rescues: With critical cases like Iris(with Ascites) and Pinni who has TVT, Maple who had Parvo, our resources are always crunched because vet bills, foster fees take up a huge chunk of our expenses. As much as we try and do all of this ourselves, it's just not possible.
Iris - She has Ascites because of which there is continual fluid formation in her abdomen.
Maple here had Parvo
