Achievement:

With the help of God and His Angels on earth, we could achieve our dream to give freedom, food and treatment to at least a few dogs and puppies as per our capacity. We do not get any Govt. grant or aid our own resources and generosity of a few Angles of God, helps to run the Home. If we could get all round help from Govt and sympathetic people, in rehabilitation of stray and abandoned dogs instead of raising hue and cry on them and killing them mercilessly, we could have made our cities stray dog free and rural areas free of any untoward canine incidents. We have a concrete plan for this. We have proved that at least in one colony at Secunderabad, where we stayed, have been made stray dog free by adopting them at our premises, without getting any statutory help or encouragement. (see our website for media report)

Our Aspirations:

We wish to start.
1. Rural Stray Dog Sterilisation. (Animal Birth Control Programme)
2. On the Spot Treatment Service to Cattle
3. Hospital treatment for cattle.

To implement this project, trained manpower and a special multipurpose vehicle is required to give On the Spot Treatment cum Ambulance Service for sick cattle and collection/ release of rural stray dogs for sterilisation. We have appealed to all for a dedicated Veterinarian, a Vet. Assistant and a Helper and waiting for God to bless helpless animals by providing for our needs.
