Red Paws Rescue is a registered charity run by sisters Sadhwi & Sakshi Sondhi in New Delhi. From a young age both of us have been fond of dogs and we always had a dog at home. Red Paws Rescue was born out of that love and is named after our first dog ‘Red’. We have both been working with dogs for the past nine years and our mission is to make the lives of dogs that live on the streets of our city happier and healthier. Currently we have a team of two boys that help us feed 50-60 dogs in a few different neighbourhoods and help sterilize and vaccinate around 40 dogs every month. Since we don’t have our own space we visit private vets and keep the dogs in boardings that increase our costs and doesn’t allow us to take care of as many dogs as we want.

Our animal birth control (sterilize & vaccinate) program has been running for the past 5 years and we have realised that the only way of expanding the program is by getting our own Recovery Centre where we can take in more dogs at one time and get an on-site vet that will allow us to cut costs and increase numbers. The space will also be used to house dogs that are injured and need temporary medical attention before they are released back to their home on the streets. In the future we also plan to use the space to foster young puppies that need to recover before they can be put up for adoption.

We have rented a farm land space in Ghitorni on which we plan to build our Recovery Centre for which we require your help. The construction has already begun with the funds that we currently have but we will be unable to complete it without your support.

Our Recovery Centre will consist of dog kennels, one medical/surgery room, one kitchen, our staff room and an office. The estimated cost of each its provided below (break down of costs for each also available):
Dog Kennels - Rs. 1,90,500
Medical/Surgery Room - Rs. 1,50,000
Kitchen - Rs. 50,000
Staff Room+Bathroom - Rs. 1,50,000
Office - Rs. 1,20,000
Outdoor work (Electric, Water, Sewage) - Rs. 90,000
Outdoor work (Boundary Wall, Main Gate, Paint, Fence) - Rs. 1,30,000
Outdoor work (Miscellaneous) - Rs. 78,000
Total Construction Costs - Rs. 9,58,500

We are also looking for sponsors to cover costs of our Recovery Centre to help keep us afloat for the next six months so we can start our efforts as soon as the construction is complete, details below:
Rent (Rs. 25,000/month) - Rs. 1,50,000
Staff Salary (Manager) - Rs. 1,20,000
Staff Salary (Caretaker) - Rs. 84,000
Staff Salary (Cleaner) - Rs. 48,000
Utilities - Rs. 1,20,000
Food for dogs - Rs. 2,00,000
Vet + Medicines - Rs. 3,30,000
Total Construction Costs - Rs. 10,52,000

Our plan is to open the doors to our Recovery Centre early January 2020 for which we require donors to help us cover the costs of construction of the entire Recover Centre (Rs. 9,58,500) and we need sponsors to help keep our centre afloat for the next six months (Rs. 10,52,000). Our dream can only become a reality with your help and together we can make a difference in the lives of street dogs, one paw at a time.

Thank you,
Sadhwi & Sakshi Sondhi
