The Wag'd Foundation Rescue & Rehab Centre, Bangalore

4 years ago, I started on a journey of working with rescued in distress and stray/abandoned dogs.

With 30 rescued dogs under my direct care, some of you may have seen what I can achieve as an individual. The culmination of all that passion, dedication and perseverance is something that you have followed and supported for as long as you have, our shared end goal being the rescue and successful rehoming of all the animals under my care. Now, its time for the next step. I've put together a very capable and compassionate team of animal care specialists to continue taking care of all our kids. Together, we are building them a permanent lifelong sanctuary where they will stay loved, well cared for and cherished until they are ready to go to their forever homes.

For this, we need your help!

The structuring of a public  charitable trust (The Wag'd Foundation) is currently under way. The trust shall operate a privately operated, publically funded sanctuary, construction and setup costs of which are estimated to be INR 15,00,000.

I need help raising INR 15,00,000 to secure the future of these kids. 7,00,000 is to go towards construction, 2,50,000 towards a deposit, 65000 for legal fees and registration, the remaining towards staff salaries, rent and operational expenses for the first 6 months.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for all your support and love. Our pups are very grateful and are wagging their tails in appreciation                                  

As of today, we have raised 20% of our goal. Incoming funds may have slowed down, but the dogs who need our attention haven't. Over the last week, we have taken in 2 more abandoned dogs in dire condition and continue to treat and look after the existing inmate population at the center.

Our deadline to pay the site deposit is now near, and 2,50,000 of the  amount raised is being paid as advance . This will ensure that we have the space to operate the foundation over the next 6 years.
