The Paw Foundation
"The Paw Foundation" is a Trust with Registration Number: 2898. Our Trust is actively involved in rescue of helpless animals like dogs,cats,horses etc across, so as to give a voice to the voiceless, in Guwahati city and other parts of Assam. Our organization consists of more than 40 active members and volunteers who are proactively working towards the welfare of animals. We have involved in rescue of many animals in the past three months but presently we are facing difficulty in accommodating the rescued animals in a secured place since we do not have the necessary infrastructure. We are happy to say that till date we have been able to rescue more than 70 animals (and still counting) in just 3 months with very critical conditions. Currently due to lack of infrastructure we are bound to accommodate the animals in IPU (In Patient Unit) in the nearest Veterinary Hospital where proper care with all the necessary facility are provided to the animals but which is also attracting a sum of Rs. 150/- per day (which excludes treatment charges, medicines charges, etc.) for each animal admitted there. Currently due to the IPU charges levied on each animals we are finding it very difficult to bear the daily expenses meant for the treatment of animals. Hence we are seeking Donations from the kind hearted people who also care for the welfare of the animals. We hereby request all animal lovers who are willing to help and come forward to donate benevolently with whatever amount they can for the success of this cause for helping the voiceless.
The rescued animals, after complete treatment, are also put up for adoption and till date more than 6 dogs have already been adopted by kind hearted people across the city. We are also in need of a van in which we can carry the helpless animals to the Veterinary Hospital and in the absence of which we have to pay hefty sum of money for the transportation of animals.
Our organization has complete transparency regarding the funds utilized and every penny is spent only for the sole cause of the treatment and well being of the animals. Since The Paw Foundation has not completed 3 years of operation so we are not eligible to apply for Grant-in-Aid from Government of India as per the guidelines. So we are left with only option i.e. to seek help from the general public. And as the days are passing by we are receiving more and more number of cases due to which it is becoming increasingly difficult for us to handle all the cases with such fund constraints.
But following the firm principles of our organisation, we never say “NO” to any case even after having very low funds. On a daily basis we receive many phone calls from all across the city asking for a helping hand towards the helpless animals to which we actively respond. As the number of cases are increasing day by day it is become extremely difficult for us to even treat some dogs. So currently just to maintain the regular expenses for the treatment of the rescued animals and also to continue our rescue operations we need funds immediately. Therefore, once again we call out to all animal lovers and kind people to come forward and help us by donating with whatever you can.
