WFA World for all organization–pick up and sterilization of cats at cuffe parade and providing them with animal ambulance-New project Suggested by Ramesh Narayan SOS–save our strays providing them with eeco van for pick up for strays (last year commitment)

Working with AAC who partner with YODA AND SPCA “hospital adoption” programme as one of the “Rotary Causes”. In a nut shell our team at the hospital plays the role of a caregiver and an adoption coordinator for the all the animals (dogs and cats) that don’t have a pet parent / care giver / “owner”. The profile of these animals is street animals and or abandoned pets. expenses per month work out to around Rs 70,000 /- which goes to the below cost heads (Suggested by Bipin Vazirali)

Working with Shelter for Cows suggested by Hiren Kara (he will provide details)

We also request that there should be a corpus created for the Animal

Welfare Committee so that all donations stay in the corpus and projects lasting longer than a year can be adopted. Our estimate and request for budget is Rs.30,00,000/- (Rupees Thirty lakhs only). All detailed estimated quotations have been sent earlier though email but our the budget given to us is 20,00,000. Thus we have cut down some other requirments which could wait and will not exceed the amount assighned to us.

Kindly accede to our request at the earliest so that we can set our plans in motion from the 1st of July.

Thanking you.
