Saving one dog from the street won’t change the world but definitely for that one dog the world will change forever. Stray dogs are often tortured on the road and end up dying.
As dog lovers, we rescue, neuter and rehabilitate them. Sadhwi and I (Sakshi) are sisters. We started Red Paws Rescue in 2010 with the aim to help, aid and take care of stray and sick dogs who've been neglected.
It has been nearly a decade and our commit has remained unwavering towards the welfare of stray dogs.
Red Paws Rescue was born out of love and is named after our first dog ‘Red’. We have both been working with dogs for the past 10 years and our mission is to make the lives of dogs that live on the streets of our city happier and healthier. Currently, we have a team of two boys that help us feed 50-60 dogs in a few different neighborhoods and help sterilize and vaccinate around 40 dogs every month.
Dogs are amazing pets and always remain loyal to the people who care for them. They can be our best friends and in return they only ask for one thing and that is our love. Our dogs live on the streets and don’t always have the best life. They often get beaten and hit by people. They also end up getting severely injured because of car accidents.
They need somebody to help them and can be there for them. Our team helps sterilize and rehabilitate them. Later, we put them back on the street so they can have a good life. All stray dogs are not ferocious; most of them are really very friendly once you get to know them. And when there are so many of them, they get territorial, so basically the answer comes at to the same thing: to get them neutered. What needs to be done is to neuter the dogs, to control the population and that’s what we aim to do.
We often have more dogs than homes. And with the resources spread so thin, it becomes hard to cater to so many street dogs and puppies. Usually, they end up getting run over or contracting something terrible and painful like distemper or rabies— both of which are risky to those living around these dogs as well. Since we don’t have our own space we visit private vets and keep the dogs in boardings that increase our costs and doesn’t allow us to take care of as many dogs as we want. Our animal birth control (sterilize & vaccinate) program has been running for the past 5 years and we have realized that the only way of expanding the program is by building our own Recovery Centre where we can take in more dogs at one time and get an on-site vet that will allow us to cut costs and increase numbers.
We have rented a farm land space on which we plan to build our Recovery Centre for which we require your help. The construction has already begun with the funds that we currently have but we will be unable to complete it without your support. Our plan is to open the doors to our Recovery Centre as early as possible. Our dream can only become a reality with your help and together we can make a difference in the lives of street dogs, one paw at a time.
Please help us rescue injured, abandoned and needy street animals by building our own recovery center. Please donate generously and share this campaign with your friends and family.
