Help the dogs of the Sahara Estates
The community of the Sahara Estates and their visitors have come together, with the help and support of Humane Society International/India, to launch an inaugural dog population management program in Hyderabad. This is an incredibly unique project, spearheaded by the over 200 visitors to the Raju Ayurveda Clinic, which resides within Sahara Estates. This project is also enthusiastically supported by the Raju family, who continue to play a pivotal role in the community.
The purpose of this project is to (1) humanely manage the stray dog population of the Sahara Estates community through sterilization, (2) increase the quality of life for the dogs through vaccinations, health check-ups and proper feeding stations, and (3) promote a positive relationship between the street dogs and the human community through education and awareness activities. The aim is for every person and every dog in the Sahara Estates to live happily and healthily together.
The proceeds for this fundraiser will be used to cover the following costs:
- Spay and neuter program
- Vet medical expense account
- Dog feeding stations
- Housing/salary for dog warden
- Educational programs in schools
- Educational programs for security personnel
- Transportation and boarding costs for HSI's spay & neuter team
- Other miscellaneous expenses
We are hopeful that this will be the first of many similar projects in Hyderabad. Any additional funds raised and not used for this project will be directed to Human Society International/India for their other numerous street dog welfare campaigns.
We thank you for your donation and for your support!
