Huge amounts of manja is discarded into nature which often gets entangled in trees and buildings. These discarded manja traps birds which fly into them. Once a bird is trapped in this manja it will be impossible for the bird to get out.

Animal Warriors Conservation Society saves hundreds of birds from manja each year. These birds often get stuck on high branches or on tall structures making the rescue very complicated and time taking. Due to lack of proper equipment Manja rescues often pose a threat to rescuers.
We currently use bamboo sticks tied one onto another to reach the birds. Bamboos are not shock-proof, making the rescue very dangerous. Sometimes our team has to climb the trees at very high risk.

With the help of a boom lift vehicle we can reach at the height of 40ft or more at ease and can save the bird quickly. This vehicle can also help us to save other animals like cats which get trapped on trees and buildings.Also a reach pole ,exclusively made to save animals at distance, is a shock-proof extendable pole that can be very helpful with saving animals which are deep into branches of trees.

Kindly help us to provide equipment and a vehicle which can save thousands of animals. Your every valuable contribution will save a life with highest level safety.

Many of us love animals, but only a few lucky ones get to enjoy their company at home. For those who love animals, but cannot keep them because of space or time constraints, objections from family members or house owners, we have come up with the idea of setting up a shelter to own keep and adopt pets. Devuni Wellness Center, my NGO based in Hyderabad, Telangana, will be working on building a shelter for animals and rural livelihood generation. At this centre, you can make us custodians of your animals when you are travelling. Or you can simply spend an afternoon in the company of animals and showing them love. Currently, we have begun work in setting up this centre, which could be the dream come true of many animal lovers. Do donate generously to help us take this forward.

 

 

I also run two Facebook groups for animal lovers. To see our work, take a look at our pages:
Hyderabad Dog loves, Hyderabad cat lovers.

I am looking for an animal shelter to keep cats, dogs, cows.

Each share of yours will impart happiness and life to our mother Cow

Once a cow grows old and stop giving milk, their owner disowns them because they are of no use to them. Thousands of such innocent cows are left on the street without a home. Many of these are just aged, injured, or abandoned. Some of these cows fall prey in the hands of butchers. Others are deeply starved and move from one place to another in search of food bearing the brunt of weather. These cows are insulted, canned and even pelted with stones. Some of these even meet with fatal accidents, others groan in pain due to severe injuries waiting for medical attention. The life of these cows become miserable.

SHOULD SUCH BE THE END OF COWS WHICH HAVE FED US MILK ALL THROUGHOUT THEIR LIFE AND IS CALLED AS ‘MOTHER’?

Ranka Jain built a huge Goshala in Hyderabad to save these humble cows from being turned into meat. He fought this atrocity by helping these docile animals with shelter and fodder. What started out as a small effort with 200 cows to save these docile creatures is now home to thousands of cows. Satyam Shivam Sundaram Gau Niwas, the largest cow shelter in Southern India is home to almost 6000 cows. Mr. Dharam says, “Let us return the cow its rightful place culturally, religiously and economically.”

In this Gosahala, the cows aren’t there to be milked or tortured. They enjoy a calm and carefree life.

The Goshala has over 100 members in its Staff and 2 veterinarians to help with any medical issues. With the lockdown in place, no donors are coming forward to help feed these cows. The donors who used to donate fodder aren’t around. Mr. Dharam and his staff have trouble feeding these cows. He needs your help to feed his animals and overcome this painful crisis.

 
You can help these innocent creatures by donating fodder. They’ve been given a second chance at life and they do not deserve to spend these days in starvation.

Give these animals a way to overcome the crisis by donating fodder.

Summary

Known as the SHELTER WITH HEART. Our dogs/puppies run free and are happy cared for by a devoted Staff of 25 plus 3 full time vets. They’re not just in captivity. They have a life. OUR BELIEF IS THAT DEEP HEALING ONLY TAKES PLACE IF A CREATURE FEELS SAFE, CARED FOR,AND LOVED. We use traditional and alternative medicine AND LOVE to lift suffering from over 7000 homeless dogs/puppies,and tens of thousands of others. 1ST-TIME PEOPLE SOMETIMES GET TEARY. THEY DIDN’T KNOW A PLACE SUCH AS OURS EXISTED.

Challenge

WHEN WE FIRST OPENED JANUARY 2007 there were over 7000 homeless dogs and the stray population was out of control. With no small animal vet within 75 kms, no treatment facility, rabies, and widespread abuse, there was unbounded misery. There were actually 350 suffering and dying animals on the streets-mostly dogs and puppies, but others too (monkeys, cows, squirrels, peacocks, etc.)…IT WAS AWFUL.

Solution

LOVE, LOVE, AND MORE LOVE…7 major programs: Clinic. Hospital. Sanctuary (if a creature cannot make it on its own). Adoption program (over 1000 puppies placed in good homes). 24/7 emergency rescue. Hospice (we are a no-kill shelter) RESULT: Population is now rabies-free and decreasing for first time in forty years. No more suffering and dying animals on the streets. 10,000 fewer puppies born each year. AND MOST IMPORTANT… Relationship of homeless animals with the people has been transformed..

Long-Term Impact

REPEATING: THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT HAS HAPPENED IS THAT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE HOMELESS DOGS AND THE PEOPLE AMONGST THEY LIVE DAY IN, DAY OUT HAS BEEN TOTALLY TRANSFORMED. Without that transformation, the impact of whatever else is done (stricter laws, clinics, hospitals, shelters, rescue programs) is severely limited. The animals would be subject to the same indifference, the same unaided difficulties in their search for food and water, the same absence of affection.

 

Dear People…Dear Animal Lovers…Dear Supporters…

Namaste’. I  bow to your Innermost Selves.

My Guru…my teacher…many, many years ago during his lifetime, would give a short teaching each night. Many people would come. And he’d always begin with, “I welcome you All with all my Heart. This is my  most important Practice…Welcoming another Being with love.”

I’m really old now. This is my last lap. And what a blessing it has been for me.  It isn’t often in one’s life that they get a chance to be involved in something that lifts so much suffering. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

These are such extraordinarily intense times…But there  appears to be some Light…a softening…a subtle increase in compassionate energy…May we, and all our Dear Ones, be Guided and Protected.

This is a very special Report about a major rescue effort we made to lift suffering from 20 precious dogs…a Report in which we put forth focused effort with Pure Motivation to “lighten the load,” to infuse Light, Joy, and Hope. This is a Report about Heart and its healing power.

It’s late evening here as I write. My dogs are quiet and resting on their pillows. My cats are probably curled up somewhere. The overhead fan is whirring. And you can feel the approaching  Hot Season.

===================

Every once in a while we get involved in something that requires unbounded effort, and lifts an incredible amount of suffering from the animals. These last two months one of those special things happened. As I saw it unfolding, I realized how exceptional, love-filled and powerful it was. And I was so pleased with My People.

This outstanding rescue effort was made on behalf of an “unauthorized shelter” in Pondicherry run by a lady named Helen Chitra. It involved two distinct major rescue efforts.

  • One involved her shelter being overrun by ticks.
  • The other, and by far the greater effort, involved rescuing her dogs and puppies that were in imminent danger of drowning due to flooding caused by cyclone Nivar.
  • Each involved a deep, deep total effort.

===================

TICKS:

Wed. Nov.18th.  We received a call from Helen.

  • She was frantically distressed, and said her shelter was overrun by tens of thousands of ticks, and that no one would help her.
  • She asked that we permanently take her dogs – 20 dogs/4 puppies. I told her we couldn’t do that, but that we could swiftly help her resolve the problem.
  • She told me she wanted me to take them, and then commit suicide. Alarmed, I told her I would call back in ten minutes.
  • I had hurried discussions with Dr. Raja and Vishwa. Compounding the problem was that her shelter was 2 to 2 1/2 hours away by car. But we were able to craft a plan.
  • I called her back and told her:
  • (A) Dr. Raja was ordering a costly “cutting edge” medicine  (13,000 rupees–we’d pay) in Chennai that she’d receive in two days (Fri.Nov.20th). It was a very advanced medicine. One dose in pill form for each dog and puppy would magically take care of all the ticks on the animals. No medicated baths were required.
  • (B) The decontamination of her shelter was more complicated. Two were needed, each requiring a flame gun, a special solution, a spray, and several staff. But they would definitively resolve the situation. And she needn’t do anything. Vishwa would come with Staff, equipment, and supplies to do it.
  • (C) Dr. Raja also called, and told her tick fever was not life-threatening, and highly treatable. He told her to give all the dogs Doxycycline pills daily. It would be a treatment for those having tick fever, and operate as a prophylactic for those not having it.

Mon.Nov.23rd. Vishwa did the first decontamination. With two staff, he left Tiru at 7am. They arrived at Helen’s shelter at 9:30am. It took 6 hours (9:30am to 3:30pm) to decontaminate. (Vishwa confirmed there were tens of thousands of ticks.)

The second and final decontamination that would totally resolve the situation was set for Fri.Nov.27th.

===================

BUT!!!!!!

On Thurs. Nov.26th, the day before Vishwa was to do the final decontamination, desperate for help, Helen called at 4pm, and told us……CYCLONE NIVAR HAD CAUSED FLOODING IN HER SHELTER OF UP TO 5 FEET…..ONE DOG HAD ALREADY DROWNED, AND THE OTHERS WERE THREATENED.

  • Time was incredibly short. She called at the last-minute, and it was already late in the day. Vishwa, however, was able to get five Staff who could work throughout the night. And with the large ambulance and a car, they left Tiru before 5pm. But they still didn’t get there until after nightfall.
  • It took 2 1/2 hours…in the darkness…wading thru two to five feet of water to rescue the terrified creatures, and get them loaded into the vehicles. But they managed to save all twenty! Bless you Vishwa…Bless you Dear Ones…Om Namah Shivaya!
  • They didn’t get back to Tiru until midnight. Everyone was exhausted. And no one realized the terrible condition the Precious Ones were in until they were unloaded in our Shelter.
  • Their ribs were protruding. Their stomachs were sunken in. And they were emotionally broken. It was clear they had been suffering deeply for a long time.
  • Five of our Staff stayed with them throughout the night…nursing them…feeding them. Loving them. Talking to them.

Dr. Raja gave them thorough examinations in the morning. All, without exception, were very, very weak. Several were in life-threatening condition. A number had tick fever.

We put two caretakers on them around the clock…our very best. Stroking. Loving. Kissing. Feeding. Reassuring.

We also prepared a special area for the poor babes within our compound walls while they healed. It was separate from the main Shelter and consisted of two large adjacent retaining cages, 15 by 20 feet–one for the 5 younger dogs(puppies); the other for the 10 adult dogs. And there were two aggressive dogs that were cared for separately. (We initially had 20 dogs, but we lost three in the first week. One pup was attacked by an older dot, and two basically died thru weakness. We simply weren’t able to save them.) We also had an area outside the cages in which they could run around and lounge.

Food:

Food was initially available 24 hours a day. Special food: eggs, milk, fruit, Pedigree, dal, and a multi-vitamin syrup. We included a strong ayurvedic immune system booster in their food, and a homeopathic Bach Flower remedy in their water that works directly in healing the emotions. There was also an ayurvedic potion in the food that heals the emotions.

Our dogs are fed twice daily. After the point where their weight and energy were fully restored, and they did only little nibbling throughout the day, the new dogs were moved to that schedule.

They healed and did beautifully. Their healing and recovery in our care was stunning. It shows the Power of Love. We wanted to keep them. But Maneka Gandhi, one of the most influential and best-known animal activists insisted on them being returned to Helen, and she has taken full responsibility for overseeing their care.

===================

Each of the below links will take you to a short video…(ALERT: TO GET BACK TO THE REPORT AFTER WATCHING A VIDEO, YOU HAVE TO CLOSE THE LINK!!!!) One video was taken the first night and shows the condition of the Precious Ones when they were rescued. The other was taken after they had been in our care for six weeks. The improvement is truly stunning. They don’t even look like the same dogs. (The second video will lift your Hearts]

May they, going forward, be loved and well taken care of…May they have beautiful lives…Please…Say a prayer for them…Om Namah Shivaya.

 =================== 

Many of you most enjoy the short rescue stories I write about. Here are some recent ones that our beloved Vishwa has just given me.

  • We got a 5pm call from the bus station. A monkey had gotten an electric shock and couldn’t move. Pandi and Dharma went out. The poor babe was unconscious on the side of the road opposite the bus station. He was a 6yr.old male. They bought him in. Dr. Raja gave him an i.v., a painkiller and antibiotics, and treated the burn wounds on his legs and arms. In about two hours he started gaining consciousness. It was about 8pm and Ravi, on the nightshift, lovingly took over. He put him in a small, padded cage in isolation, and gave him little chunks of apples, bananas, and grapes, gently stroking, and reassuring him. After two days our new monkey was moved into the large monkey cage upstairs. He made friends with a female monkey, and they would sit together, touching a little. After three weeks they were released together on Pradakshina Road, a really lovely area. They were very, very happy to be free, and immediately ran together into the forest…Om Namah Shivaya…Be happy, Precious Ones.
  • An 11am call from the railway station. A young, small dog had been attacked by several other dogs. She was hurt. Dharma and Prem went out. The sweetie was a female, about 2 years old. She had deep bite wounds on her neck and back, and was not able to move. She knew she was being rescued and was very glad to see Dharma and Prem. They took her to the Shelter.  Dr. Raja gave her an i.v. with a painkiller and antibiotics. He also started a regimen of anti-rabies vaccine, and treated her wounds. She was put under the loving care of Purehearts Sekar and Supervisor Raja. She bonded with them right away. (Who wouldn’t?) There were three other dogs who affectionately accepted her straight away. They lay next to each other and played, some, throughout the day. At the writing of this Report, we’ve had her for a month, and she’s now on the veranda playing a lot. Vishwa will first try to release her into her territory. If she doesn’t do well, she’s white and very beautiful, and he’ll find a good home for her.

===================

The feeling inside the Shelter is simply uplifting. It is not something that can be contrived. It just is. The Precious Ones feel safe, content, and are happy. The Staff are connected with each other through the Heart. Visiting animal lovers are deeply moved…We are so, so pleased the way everything has unfolded.

The relationship between the people and the homeless animals on the streets is now also very good. It was awful when we first opened in 2007. There were 350 suffering and dying animals on the streets…unbounded suffering… widespread abuse. This is no more. We have 40 to 80 emergency rescues a month. When an animal is in need,  people move to help them and call us.

The Peoples’ Hearts have truly opened to the animals. And this is so auspicious! When the Heart opens, it doesn’t only open in one direction. It simply opens, and people are nicer to each other, too. It’s profoundly there. You can’t see it, but it’s there. The societal implications for this are immense…

We humans are so complicated. It’s so difficult to work with us directly to get us to be nicer to each other. It’s so much easier, and more effective, to work on opening our Hearts to the animals, and thereby deepening the compassion we have for each other. It’s a real, effective way, of uplifting communities…Om Namah Shivaya.

 ===================

This brings us to the end of the Report.

I’m hoping that each of you is doing excellently in these most difficult of times.

As in previous Reports, I’ve included a collection of photos. Hope you enjoy them. The overall theme is love.

ALSO…At the beginning, I’ve included several photos of Helen’s dogs so you can see the power of loving care in uplifting them. Two of the photos were taken the first night they were rescued. And two of the photos were taken after they had been in our care for six weeks.

Say a prayer for us All…For our beloved World…That we be healed…That we be Blessed, Guided, and Protected.

=================== 

PLEASE…REMEMBER…DONATIONS!

THE PRECIOUS ONES NEED US…AND WE NEED YOU!

PLEASE…DIG DEEPLY…AND GIVE GENEROUSLY.

RECURRING DONATIONS, EVEN MODEST ONES, ARE BEST FOR US. THEY GIVE US STABILITY.

===================

With love, blessings, and wishes for all things good…May we All, each of us, do actions that emit uplifting, healing energy. These are difficult times for our beloved Planet…and each of us can help in a major way.

Hunger is a curse.

Till today so many humans as well as animals go to sleep with hungry tummy.

Like the human beings our furry friends feel hungry too and in general it’s a challenging job for them to scavenge food.

Now the ongoing Corona related national lockdown has made situations worse.

Street dogs and cats of many residential areas are affected to a degree because public eateries have closed down and their feeders are sometimes not turning up for fear of lockdown. But worst affected are dogs and cats living in places where there is no residential building nearby and their only food source is public eateries/visiting feeders, e g office districts, shopping towns, large educational complexes, factory complexes, game/entertainment parks, transport terminals (rail/bus/airport). Also similarly affected are dogs living on busy roads/highways with food shops/eateries on them but no residences nearby.

 

 Myself  Sree Haritha and I along with my husband Amit Chatterjee, run a registered animal shelter named Animal Rescue and Care at Manikonda, Hyderabad, India which is one of the trusted organizations in Kolkata working relentlessly since last 5years.
We feed almost 200 plus animals daily in normal times and take care of their spaying, vaccination and treatment too. During  this Corona lockdown in India, we are already trying to provide survival feeding to some more stray cats/ dogs/cows beyond our locality, employing added manpower  to cover feeding of almost 700 animals.
The most important need surfaced by this experience of feeding is spaying/neutering these suffering animals.
This decision of sterilization was taken on the fourth day of feeding drive when we saw one adult female dog was crushed to death by a speeding vehicle ,she was waiting for us ,was waiting for food on the same spot where we have fed her the last 3days and this was the second death we got to see on that road as on the 2nd of feeding also we saw one puppy’s crushed body on that same road. So just in 4 days 2 deaths at the place, on enquiring locals we got to know how almost every day one or other accident occurs there and specially puppies are crushed.

We will be applying for speed breakers in that particular area once this lockdown period gets over but at the same time spaying is mandatory there as the number of dogs is huge.

We aim to spay 250 females from these areas specially the busiest routes and conduct anti rabies vaccination for 400 dogs.

Feeding will help us to befriend this streetwise and gain their confidence for catching/trapping process of sterilization.


Feeding them to help them survive is just the beginning of the responsibility to ensure they have long secured hassle free life spaying is absolutely important
