What we aim to do is empower individual life and life as a whole on beautiful Cherai. We look moms with pups in situ and then take the pups when and only if they are in danger. The pups live with me, we have an evolving family, they are socialised, loved, fed, vaccinated and sterilised. Empowering them and saving unwanted lives from being born. We feed them all at least one home-cooked meal a day, this not only visibly boost their development but helps when homed as they eat ‘normal’ food. It takes time and costs 2.5 kg of rice & the same in chicken/fish. We also give them dried food. Obviously the little ones are fed more often. There is also the cost of medication for skin infections, prevention of fleas, worming etc.
Homing and gaining funding takes up a lot of my time daily too. We aim to match each dog's needs with those of adopters. So that there is some chance they will have a happy home for life. We also do not give to anyone with cages. Each case is different. They are individuals.
To be clear we do not ‘rescue’ all dogs who need the help, we can’t I am on my own and we do not have a shelter, we have a home. I simply take in those who are in serious danger when I can possibly empower the rest of their lives. We use government vets who are fantastic. I simply do what I can.
