Let me share a real-life incident that I experienced. Outside my gated community, usually at night, a few dogs would bark regularly. Before the lockdown it wasn’t that frequent or loud but during the lockdown they bark, cry and wail loudly. I found this very annoying. I didn’t realize why they were barking so much. Then my sister told me that the reason they are barking is because they are hungry, cold and shelter less. I felt ashamed at myself for making such an insensitive comment. Since then, I have wanted to do something for those voiceless animals. That’s when it hit me that I can actually organise a fundraiser to collect money that can help buy food for these animals so that animal feeders around the city, feed them.
This fundraiser is for strays across Hyderabad, Telangana, India.
This is being organised with Animal Rights Activist - Zabi Khan, Founder of "A Place To Bark"
With these funds we will be buying food for the strays and distributing the food to the strays with the help of dog feeders around Hyderabad.
