SUPPORT THE STRAY DOGS
We are a small NGO with big dreams operating out of the National Capital Region of Delhi, India. Our activities include daily feeding about 20 stray dogs and cats, providing medical facility, conducting stray dogs neutering drives, raising adoption awareness (that is not buying from cruel and exploitative puppy mills but taking in dogs from the street only, often referred to as Desi or Indies) and more recently, taking up animal cruelty cases.
Recently we have filed a Public Interest Litigation in the Supreme Court of India (WPC 296 of 2016) regarding the strengthening of the animal cruelty laws in India - as of right now the only punishment for hacking a puppy to death in India is Rs. 50 (less than 1 US$) and that is not right! also the PIL seeks for the regulation of the pert shop industry which is the home of unspeakable exploitation towards the voiceless on a daily basis. For example - drugging puppies, cutting of beaks of birds with hot knives, pulling out claws of cats without anaesthesia and basically men profiteering from the wombs of animals.
The NGO is registered as a trust under the Indian Trusts Act, 1882 with all the necessary paperwork and documentation done. Also, recently we also got our 80G certification from the Income Tax Authorities and all donations to us are exempt under section 80G of the Income Tax Act 1961.
