a Dog Home
To buy a dog supports the extremely cruel practice of breeding where pedigreed females are mated twice every year often with their own sons and brothers. The result is genetically weak animals who spend most of their lives at the mercy of bad vets. If you are looking for a dog as a companion, you need look no further than your own street. Indian dogs make loving, loyal and naturally health pets. When you take in a homeless puppy /dog off the street you rescue it from hunger ,cold , disease and certain death. dogs co-exist quite happily and will actually benefit from the company
Be a P.A.L
(Prevent A Litter)
Every hour over 2000 dogs and cats are born in India ---- far more than can ever find good homes which is why millions of them become homeless ending up in shelters or struggling to survive on the street .Nor is it stray animals but pets that are largely responsible for this multiplication . Take the homeless animals in your locality to a shelter for free sterilization.
Imagine being locked up for a life in a small cage with no room to even stretch . We don't do this even to hardened criminals , so why to beautiful little birds ?? Do not keep birds yourself . Report sellers to the police and get the birds released . Birds belong in the sky and you can help keep them there.
Volunteer at a Shelter
All animal welfare groups are strapped for both cash and volunteers . You can help . Raise funds through raffles and coupon sales . Approach corporates and local Rotary/ Lion's clubs for the sponserships of ambulances or medicine. Organise recruitment drives at schools and clubs . Develop contacts with the media to feature animal welfare issues.
As buildings replace trees, birdslose their food and nesting sites. Plan bird friendly trees like jamun, shehtoot, neem, mango,guava and peopal in your area. put out grain and water everyday in your garden, balcony or roof. Birds love biscuit crumbs,bits of fruit and roti. If you come across a baby bird, find the nest from which it has fallen and replace it there. If you cannot find the nest, make one out of a basket and place it on the closest tree, out of harm's way till its parents can locate it. Keep a discreet watch till that happens.
