Help build community of volunteers for Animals in need

Ask for an update


Hi, My name is Manish. For last 8+ years, I am involved in providing food and taking care of medical needs of stray animals in my locality. I am working in a PSU, residing in Mumbai for nearly a decade.

During this period I have provided food even upto 35-38 animals at a time starting from merely 4 animals years ago. Currently I am providing food to around 21-22 feral cats and some stray dogs daily.

However, it is the medical needs which I find challenging.  Not only the money, the real challenge i find is intensive care which i find difficult to provide due to my personal/official commitments and lack of a team. The second big challenge is that there are hardly couple of no-kill shelters in Mumbai and it is difficult to find place there. (One can see from attached document that food alone is costing me around 15K a month, not counting milk and medicines and vet visits and ambulance etc, and yet i do not consider that as the prime challenge.)

I am finding the schedule/commitment too stretched because of my official assignments as well as lack of a support structure. This year alone I could not saved 1 cat and 3 kittens (three separate cases) who died because of lack of required shelter as well as my inability to provide critical care in terms of time engagement. Also, the second biggest cause remain lack of a team who could assist in the task when i am on official duties.

My dream is to make people (esp kids/young generation) aware of what they can do to help animals. No one is as strong as all of us. I wish to prepare well trained people who can help animals in need : Caregiver, Fosters, First Aid Providers... I wish to provide required training to at least 2000 people in 2017-18.

I intend to establish eventually (within a year) a no-kill shelter in Mumbai for critical care animals where they can get required care and medical facilities.

I, alongwith a few like -minded individuals,  are putting together a team in form of NGO starting Q4 2017 , under the name "The Paws Project". Funds being raised in this campaign shall be utilize for
