FACTS: Thousands of pet dogs are abandoned every year in India and in addition, there are a much larger number of strays that get hurt, need medical care, etc. Where do these wonderful animals go?
Introducing the Voice Of Stray Dogs - the world's largest citywide dog rescue that has an amazing 3.5-acre sanctuary on the outskirts of Bangalore. There are 800 plus dogs here whose stay, food and medical care is taken care of.
JUST INR 2000 PER MONTH IS WHAT IT TAKES TO CARE FOR A DOG!
Read on to discover how.
I am doing this crowdfunding campaign to support the VOICE OF STRAY DOGS (VOSD) based in Bangalore. They have a sanctuary located in the outskirts of Bangalore. This sanctuary is spread across 3.5 acres of land with a 0.5-acre water body that is called the swimming pool. In additon, they have about 40 enclosures for the dogs. The cost to take care of a dog for their regular medical checkups, weekly tick & flea treatments, quarterly deworming, annual vaccinations and 2 meals a day at VOSD Sanctuary is only INR 2000 per month. The food that is served includes Chicken rice curd kibble vitamin and nutrition supplements. The food is made fresh each day and the servings are unlimited.

ABOUT ME & THIS CAMPAIGN:
My name is Poorna Choudhuri and I am an 8th-grade student at DPS Bangalore North.
I believe that a lot of our character is displayed based on how we take care, treat and care for animals. I feel very strongly about taking care of animals and want to ensure we do something for them.
I have undertaken this campaign because I think taking care of stray dogs and abandoned animals is one of the kindest things we could ever do without any expectation of getting something back. The fact that raising 10000 INR can support 5 stray dogs for a month is something that I am very excited about. This will take care of their food (2 meals a day), their medical expenses and other costs of taking care of them.
Please continue funding this campaign even if it goes past the INR 10000 goal. The more I raise, the more dogs will benefit. Please contribute generously and share this on Social Media.
HOW WILL THE MONEY BE USED?
The monies collected will be given to VOSD once the campaign ends. Since they are an NGO, any donation will be eligible for an 80G tax receipt. The money would be utilized to take care of the expenses of dogs at VOSD Sanctuary.
Every donation counts, please donate generously.
All funding for this campaign has tax benefits. Receipts will be issued by VOSD which is a registered NGO. Indian citizens can avail of 80G tax benefits. Foreign funding (ie from those with Foreign passports) is not accepted.
WORLD’S LARGEST no-kill dog sanctuary & rescue situated in Bangalore that has rescued close to 8000 dogs and has 800 resident dogs. No dogs are ever euthanized because of lack of space, money resources. No dogs are ever kept chained.

FEEDBACK THAT YOU GET
To ensure that there is complete transparency I shall get a report from NGO (this takes between 2 to 4 months usually after the funds are raised & transferred to them) telling me which dog benefited from the funding. The details will then be posted on the UPDATES section of my campaign. As soon as I post an update, the platform will send an SMS and EMAIL alert to all the funders - i.e. to you. Click on the link on the email and you can read about which dog benefited. That's transparent right.
The below image is an example of the FEEDBACK FORMAT that will be shared.
Will we get to know the details on how the money was spent?
Yes. After the money has been collected it will be transferred by Fueladream to VOSD. It will take from 30 to 90 days after that to get details of who the beneficiary was with details of them. Once I get this information from them I shall upload the picture of the dogs on the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about the beneficiaries.
When do I get the receipts?
It takes up to 2-3 weeks after the campaign is closed for the monies to be transferred to NGO. The receipts will start getting processed about 6 weeks AFTER the campaign is closed and will be sent to you directly.
How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an Idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
