HUNGREZY (for the stray feeding program)
Hungrezi is an anagram of the word 'Hunger' and 'Angrezi', which aptly comes to define the beautiful language that our community animals speak when they see their favourite yummy food coming out. It can be days before which they sometimes get access to a nutritious and hygienic meal. The excitement and love causes a razor speed zoomies when they see us. This may be the sole justifying cause of what we do. Ensuring a belly full of meals to reach as many kids as possible.
STERILISATION (for the ABC program)
Sterilisation isn't just a program run to control the stray population, but highly critical in ensuring a healthy, disease free life for our furry friends. Sterilisation in Female Dogs reduces chances of ovarian cancers, pseudo pregnancies, uterine infections, pyometra etc. Sterilisation in Male Dogs reduces the chances of Testicular cancers, aggression, and resource guarding. No matter a pet or a stray, we strongly believe that if we can spare our friends of unnecessary pain and health risks, why shouldn't we?
Every heat cycle of an un-spayed female dog can bring in 6-9 pups who have a high risk of not even making it through the first two months of survival. Every heat cycle of an un-neutered male dog causes immense pain and territorial fights. Lets break the cycle shall we?
VACCINATIONS ( for a disease free life)
Vaccination of our furry friends is a long running and recurring program, which is highly critical to ensure that our friends live a long and healthy life, disease free. Pups need to get vaccinated against the high risk of many viruses like canine distemper, canine adenovirus type 1 and type 2, parainfluenza, parvovirus, Leptospira canicola and Leptospira icterohaemorrhagiae &.Canine Rabies. Almost all of them are fatal unless attended to at the right time. All this can be avoided with a couple of shots at the right time. Sadly there is no way to ensure the kids do not contract the viruses living on the harsh streets. Regular Vaccinations and deworming are the only fighting chance they get for a healthy life.
MEDICAL RESCUE ( for being prepared for the worst)
The streets are not kind to the strays. More often than not, we see kids who have been injured due to accidents, territorial fights or even human abuse. Some basic first aid is given on spot if possible. There are chances that it could require an emergency medical procedure, which requires us to rescue the kid and take them to our Veterinary partners. We have to stay prepared to handle the worst of the situations the streets throw at us.
REHABILITATIONS & ADOPTIONS ( for a forever happy after)
Our indigenous dogs are one of the most strongest, immune, healthiest and low maintenance dogs. The streets have made them tougher over the time, and they can withstand quite a lot. Sadly not every kid has the health or the temperament to fend for themselves on the streets. Many a times, we see a litter of pups abandoned by the confused mother, or worse, orphaned. These pups wouldn't make it on their own, and we try and nurture them to lead a healthy happy life, dependent on humans. Many kids who have been injured or maimed, require special care too. We try to house train these kids so that they can find a loving home to adopt them and spoil them silly.
COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT ( for reaching more, that we humanly can)
It's always been very evident to us that if we want to make a change, we have to do it together. One very important aspect of our work is to empower as many individual organisations, feeders, care-takers or animal lovers to be able to help their community animals too. We provide the necessary tools for them to be able to start caring, even in the remotest part of the country. This includes sending care packages of medicines and food supplies which may not be easily achievable in their areas. There are many more sub programs like reflective collar drives and anti-ticks/fleas treatments which we help out to whosoever in need.
