Show the love for India/Nepal's animals!
We are ever so grateful for your support through these challenging times. The pandemic has continued to take its toll on the groups and individuals saving the animals but the work continues and conditions will slowly improve. We sent out these email report only every other month but there is so much to tell of our recent grants. Here are some lovely photos, we are NOT sharing the rescue photos as some are to gruesome but many animals are getting rescued on a daily basis as well.
Rescued animals must be fed and at Help Animals India grantee Karuna Society in South India the produce is grown to feed them by dedicated shelter workers who are otherwise marginalized. This brings a kinder world to the whole environment.
Help Animals India continues to support animal birth control for hundreds of dogs monthly in Varanasi and elsewhere in India. And in Nepal our newest partner in Kathmandu "Kathmandu Locals" after feeding daily at the "dumps" during the pandemic the push is now on to spay/neuter/rabies vaccination project for the hundreds of dogs there! Street dogs have a rough life but help is given - watch more here.
And here is the video of them being spay/neutered now too!
For now the pup's bed is an old tire at the dumps is the best that can be done but they deserve a better future, don't you agree?
Above left: Printing and disseminating 4,000 leaflets containing information and pictures to spread awareness at the community level that rabies is a fact and not a myth, how to respond in rabies cases, and what role a community can play overall.
Above right: in Lalitipur, Nepal at Sneha's Care we have sponsored the spaying and neutering of 300 female and 100 male dogs respectively.
For our help to cat projects please be assured that is ongoing also for unowned and at risk cats for spay/neuter at CUPA in Bangalore, Aurangabad (Maharashtra state) and Catmandu Lovers in Kathmandu!
Rescued from the brutal donkey brick trade at the Animal Nepal Dukuchhap Animal Sanctuary here is Rango Devi. She is from the Far West of Nepal and is incredibly hard working and great with the animals. The donkeys in the photo are Samir, Fudge, Lava and Kush.
Help Animals India has funded construction of new facilities at DehraDoon so that Raahat For Animals could rescue these buffaloes before they could be slaughtered. They are housed at their shelter where they will live their lives out with no demands made of them. Most of these buffaloes are 'rejects' of the dairy industry where they are sent for transported very cruelly for slaughter by the age of seven or eight after they have literally been milked dry. If you want to help animals like them - go vegan! Watch the video here.
Camel rescue! The pandemic has been cataclysmic, not just for humans but for innocent animals as well. One such story is of 2 camels Jojo and Julie who were abandoned on the street by their owners. Watch the story here.
Yet another ambulance purchased recently, the latest in W. Bengal at Kalimpong People for Animals! Animal ambulances do more than save lives and limbs, they inspire the public to know that animal lives are important too!
At WRRC another 26 baby Alexandrine parakeet fledgelings were rescued from the illegal trade , they need special feed and care to be rehabilitated to be released to the wild.
Aneesha, Gowri and Durga (L to R) all rescued sweeties that Help Animals India is supporting at the WRRC centre near Bangalore!
When we look into an animal's eyes, we see a sentient being like ourselves who deserves the same love, care and respect. is moral intuition is why we do what we do. It's why the dedicated people we support in India and Nepal do what they do. And we know it's why you do what you do to advance this cause and ful ll this sacred responsibility we all share.
With deepest gratitude, appreciation and best wishes for a better 2022 - from the Help Animals India team, our colleagues in India and Nepal, and the animals.
