“Sheltering 25 street dogs against all odds”
It started some years ago at Surampalli, Vijayawada city when Mr. Shoury Babu Rebba, doing human programs brought home a street dog, seriously injured in a road accident. Due to his timely intervention and proper medication the life of the dog has been saved and it has become part of our family. But, this has ignited in us the new initiative to take up “animal welfare” activities along with human welfare activities. Thus started the “Animal Welfare Ashram” at our home itself. Slowly, the number of does in distress given shelter in our “Ashram” has been increased and reached 25 by the end of the first year.
For a animal welfare, we think an ABC (Animal Birth Control) and rescue dogs in Vijayawada city with the support of animal lovers may be involve voluntarily.
