Our Mission in Amritsar
To start an animal birth control program and see an accelerating decline in Amritsar’s stray dog population.
To create a shelter for injured and disabled dogs where they can live out their years in peace and without fear.
To treat every dog humanely. To provide compassionate care and safe post-operative healing. To ensure that no dog is released till they have completely healed.
Animal Birth Control: There are 35,000 stray dogs on the streets of Amritsar (excluding surrounding sub-urban areas where the count is essentially unknown). To be successful in bringing down the population humanely we need to sterilize 3,330 dogs each year or 66 each week, while keeping mortality rates to under 1% (as prescribed by the Animal Welfare Board of India). We began this 9-year long project in 2020, with optimism, prayer, good wishes from volunteers and strangers alike, dedicated management, and generous donations. We are meeting our targets. We will make a difference. Failure is not an option.
Provide shelter to injured and disabled dogs: This project is well underway, with the generous allocation of land by a Trustee. Funds are being solicited to complete the project. Construction has started on walls, cages, operating rooms, treatment rooms and more. The expected start date of the shelter is July 1, 2021.
