Story

Healing Saathi’ is a registered trust, wholly and exclusively running a shelter home for sick, injured and disabled animals. One of Dehradun’s limited centres for disabled animals and the first shelter in Uttarakhand for disabled animals with a non-killing policy founded on belief that all animals have the right to live a dignified life, even if they are disabled, the greatest strength of the trust spiring from its vision to help, heal and provide shelter to the animals in need. The mission of the trust is to be “on a quest to heal the needy” and within a short span of around two years of its operation, over 200+ animals have been rescued and accommodated in the shelter. Founded with the object to feed stray animals, rescue and treat injured/sick animals, stand against cruelty towards animals, manufacture Reflective Collars to avoid night-accidents, organize adoption camps.

Challenges we are facing:
Running a shelter home for stray animals is never an easy task. Every day brings us a new set of challenges. Every day we receive 10 to 15 calls for the rescue and in a month at least 10 queries are made to admit a physically disabled animal. Our current shelter home is on a rented property and space size is only 250 square yards. Currently we have more than 65+ animals under our care while the capacity is 40. Our shelter is their only home. There are many animals like them who are desperately waiting for help but unfortunately due to less space & funds we are unable to accommodate them.

Besides this, we are not able to take bigger animals like Cows, Mules, Donkeys, etc, due to lack of enough space. Another challenge that we face is handling contagious and deadly diseases like Parvo and Canine Distemper. We do not have an isolation ward where we can keep infected animals.
Also our current shelter home is on a very small land & running over the capacity. So now during heat wave condition dogs are fighting with each other because of extreme heat.
 
Solution:
Now our vision is to make a bigger Shelter Home that can house up to 300 big and small animals. It will provide better facilities and environment to rescued animals and also our employees.
 
We will be developing this shelter home phase wise as per the availability of funds.
 
We have taken 1 acre of land on lease in outskirts of Dehradun. Our current plan includes below steps to be executed.
 
Steps:
1. Procuring electricity and water supply.
2. Site preparation and ground levelling.
3. Boundary Fencing.
4. Sanitation ground work.
5. Foundation.
6. Development.
7. Construction work to Shift the current shelter home to new place
It a request to everyone donor kindly come forward and donate just a small amount & help us to reach our goal. By June we have to shift our current shelter home is a new premises.
