I remember I was 13 years old when I read somewhere-
"The love for all living creatures is the noblest attribute of man".
Little did I know that this quote would become my reality.
I am Aakansha, just another Homosapien, with no virtue to mention but a passion to share. I work for animals. I started helping and rescuing animals around 8 years ago. I had no knowledge, no money, no partner(s)but only undeterred love for animals.
The journey that started with rescuing one stray dog that lived in my lane has now become my only purpose in life. I was introduced to animal cruelty and suffering at a very tender age, I remember how helpless I felt, how I cried for not being able to fight for these innocent beings. I decided to dedicate my life to these animals and worked with many animal NGOs based in Dehradun.
After working for 6 long years I decided to start my very own organization and Samarth, India Charitable Trust came into existence.
We feed, foster, rescue animals, and also get them adopted.
We have today, around 120 animals that we feed daily, we have got around 400 dogs and cats adopted and this number is increasing with each passing day. We are rescuing at least 2 animals every day and getting them treated for their ailments. We currently have paralyzed dogs, dogs with tumors, dogs with deadly infections, and small abandoned puppies with tick fever and parvo. We have an undying determination and passion but we still don't have a space to give shelter to these animals and hundreds like them. With all that we had in name of savings, we have purchased land that we wish to turn into a shelter for our four-legged friends.
We are in need of at least 15 lakh rupees for realizing that dream that can bring a huge change. If you have looked into an animal's eyes and saw a friend, a breathing positivity, and a living soul in it, join us and contribute for us.
