Miles to go before we sleep…
Nobody could ever imagine that the whole world would come to a standstill since the beginning of 2020 by the attack of tiniest of a creature named 𝗖𝗢𝗥𝗢𝗡𝗔 𝗩𝗜𝗥𝗨𝗦.
People were dead scared and searching for survival in this scary and dreadful situation. We too were scared and searching for a path to survive. In this scary situation the skinny and hungry looking street dogs of our locality drew our attention. Not many days ago, we used to find some playful indies running here and there and coming to us for some biscuits whenever we used to cross the roads. But the situation was altogether different as the evil of corona virus took the whole World into it’s grip.
As most of the shops would remain closed and very few people would venture out, those playful creatures of god, who play a very important role in our ecosystem, have started looking so helpless. It opened a new angle of life for us, we started mass feeding for the indies in the beginning of 2020 with 15 of local dogs from Northern Avenue, Dumdum region of Kolkata and within no time the number grew to 50+.
We learnt so many things about these indies and their affection while feeding them, now we know why they are called 𝗕𝗘𝗦𝗧 𝗙𝗥𝗜𝗘𝗡𝗗𝗦 𝗢𝗙 𝗛𝗨𝗠𝗔𝗡 𝗕𝗘𝗜𝗡𝗚𝗦. The more we dealt with these beautiful souls the more we came to know about their sufferings.

The numbers kept on growing and reached 100+ in three months time. Still many more are there who are looking for proper care and feeding on regular basis. We felt the urge of having our own Permanent Shelter so that the injured, abandoned, old-aged, accident victims, abused (including acid victims), orphaned etc dogs can be given shelters and a better life. Our program for dogs would continue for sure, but a shelter would help us serving them better and a lot many dogs can be reached.
