I grew up with a beautiful indie dog. My family was happy and complete with me, my wife and Pandu. Later after few years we had to say our final goodbye to our Pandu – which left us in shock and depression, and that is when we decided to dedicate our lives to all other needy dogs and provide them all that they never had. And our journey started there of- it was filled with lots of difficulties and challenges. We didn’t know what to do? How to do? I used to rescue strays and keep them at home and give good care – and eventually planned to start a shelter. Starting a shelter was a huge decision. There were days when we had nothing to eat and days when we had to leave house since people had problem with animals.
Every day, I wake up wondering what the day will bring. It could be full of joy and happiness or it could be tear-filled and heart wrenching. More often than not, it's a little of both. Every day there are cages to tidy, litter to scoop, dogs to walk and kisses to dole out to all of the fuzzy and feathered. My situation is unique as I live on the shelter property. I live, breathe, eat and sleep shelter life. Sometimes it can feel like a burden, and there are frustrating moments when I think about leaving the field, but I love my job and these animals. Instead of celebrating holidays with friends and family, I usually lie with the animals in their kennels, petting their soft fur and telling them they will be okay.

For 3 years I have managed alone to rescue and to care for the injured strays - and with time Pet Luck crossed paths with lot of people and prg – few stayed while few left. Last year when heavy rains destroyed our shelter I had to reach out to people for help. That is how a small group of Pet Luck volunteers’ was formed. I am truly thankful to these people each and every day. We all come to serve in any given situation, during illnesses and personal traumas. We are a small group, and we are pretty tight. I consider them friends, maybe allies.
When you take rescued animals in, you take their physical and emotional wellbeing to heart as well, I greet each dog with a happy voice and, in return, am greeted with a happy tail. But at the end of the day, no matter how deep crisis the shelter is in, no matter how many bruises I sport, no matter what the financial status looks like, this place is blessed. The animals are free, happy, and safe. And that is worth everything!
