WHY IS IT AN EMERGENCY FOR INDIA’S STRAY DOGS?

At the best of times, life is a struggle for India’s stray dogs. With the nationwide lockdown that started on 24 March but the actual shutdown was from 22 March 2010, this has been a death knell. stray dogs survive on garbage, leftover food and help from feeders. However, hundreds of organizations and individuals started working in very difficult times to ensure that stray dogs in their areas are being fed at least once a day or alternate days. 

WHY IS VOSD GETTING INVOLVED, NOW?

When VOSD started in 2013 VOSD started with enabling others. Since then we have distributed over 15 computers to various NGOs across India, gifted 2 ambulances, adopted over 200 dogs from NGO’s across India that could not housed, built a kitchen for a shelter in Bangalore, built a perimeter for another in New Delhi etc. 

As you well know when the lockdown started we were struggling to secure our own supply of 10 tons of food a month and 15,000 litres of water a day – all of which is bought and transported to us. By 15 April we had found a steady-state and we were already helping with the fundraising of 2 organizations one in Bangalore and another in Siliguri. However, to help more directly VOSD announced an emergency grant of Rs 200,000 for individuals and organizations that feed stray dogs to help with the escalated costs and volumes through the lockdown. All these funds were engaged in the first 3 hrs of the announcement on VOSD FB page! 

HOW WILL YOUR CONTRIBUTION HELP?

Stray dogs are hurting. So are the people who care about them. Supply lines are thin, and very expensive when they are available. It takes a special kind of person to drive 10s of kilometres to secure supplies and then an even larger distance to feed these stray dogs. VOSD is in a unique position because you trust us, and we have always used our reach to do wonderful things for stray dogs. With your help, we can help dogs across India. In this fundraising:

  • 100% proceeds will go to other organizations/individuals and these funds are not for use of VOSD. VOSD is really the platform that is generating these funds for others who feed stray dogs. 
  • All individuals and organizations will be verified by VOSD and funds transferred after reference and due diligence. 
  • Amounts to be disbursed are in proportions to the volume of dogs they feed, weighted with the references available with us. All disbursements will be the same day and funds will be credited to benefactors typically in 1 business day.
  • All benefactors will be listed here and so will be pointers to their work. None of them are personally connected to VOSD. 

 

List of beneficiaries to date

 

 

This list will be updated frequently as we release funds to verified stray dog feeders (individuals/organizations) across India.
