    stray dogs for their food and shelter

The pandemic has affected our lives in uncountable ways. While we continue to struggle with the changing times, we forget that it is not only us who have been deeply impacted by the pandemic. Several animals have been afflicted with situations of various kinds, often leaving them lost and without shelter.
Owing to construction and other related activity around Hyderabad, we had a lot of migrant workers who also brought along several dogs with them. Due to the pandemic, the workers had to leave by foot and the circumstances were such that they did not want to burden themselves with the care of their dogs. These dogs now remain stranded.

Given this situation, Heartfulness Institute has decided to design a shelter and a feeding station for them, with a planned capacity to host close to 1000 dogs, far away from the residences. Our objective is to provide them nutritious food, medication/ vaccines for any pain, injury and disease, enriched environment to alleviate fear, distress and discomfort, and a space to express themselves. This facility will ensure the grooming and welfare of the dogs and provide them with a place they can call ‘Home’.


Some features of the Proposed Dog Shelter -
-  The shelter relies on a series of courtyards divided by Pergolas, akin to a center rather than a 'jail-like' fencing which is often associated with dog shelters.
-  Unlike conventional shelters, the dogs will be put in individual rooms in a home-like setting with play structures and other amenities.
-  There will be four fenced big dog play areas with double-gated entry, one agile park area, one cool-off water body in the centre, shade structures, benches and dog play apparatus.
-  The big dog area is designed in about half an acre of off-leash, free run lawn area, an ideal place to play and run free. Small dogs would be in a separate double-gated area from the large dogs.
-  A Medical centre to cater to the medical needs of the dogs (vaccinations, injuries, rehabilitation among other things)
-  The shelter accomplishes its ambience with numerous trellises, extensive outdoor seating space extends into the greenery, inviting both human and animal recreation.

We hope to create a “healthy and inspiring environment” for sheltered dogs and for all the dog lovers who will visit and work at the Dog Shelter.
Any monetary help towards this initiative will be extremely helpful in bringing this plan into action in the immediate future. We look forward to your support in crystallizing this vision.
