We're starting a Spay-Neuter Drive in Allahabad because the problem of the overpopulation of stray animals is worsening in this city in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Unlike bigger cities like New Delhi and Mumbai, Allahabad does not have a strong community that could proactively take care of the ever-increasing population of strays and their suffering. Moreover, there aren't many government clinics so most times, an animal dies in pain because of a lack of facilities or it takes too long to reach the vet.
We want to do as much and as fast as we can to tackle the massive problem of dog overpopulation so we’re partnering with two animal lovers from Allahabad- Akanksha Mishra and Shrishti. They're students yet each girl is actively running an animal welfare group that helps and rescues hundreds of strays in Allahabad.
We target to sterilize around 50 animals through this partnership but this isn't possible without your help. The cost of each surgery and post-operation is 100 CAD (5000 INR)
Now the question may arise that why do we want to support spay-neuter? Most people are still not aware of the benefits of spay and neuter.
- When a dog is spayed, there is no risk of new puppies coming into a dangerous environment without shelter and food, living a tough life prone to road accidents.
- The cost of one surgery is significantly lower than caring for a litter of puppies.
- A female dog can produce an average of 15-20 puppies a year and a male dog can impregnate a hundred females in a year, which means it can result in more than 1500 puppies in a single year.
Spay neuter stabilizes the stray population and brings balance to our communities.
As you can see there are many ways in which we can positively impact a dog's life and our community through it.
We’re raising money to achieve our goal for the first quarter where we plan to sterilize 12 stray animals.
Please support us.
