When I was 40 years old I decided to go to India to shake my life up. Well it did. 5 years later I have founded an Indian organization to help the millions of dogs that survive on garbage and no human care for their entire lives. The first step is to purchase some land to build the organization on and build the infrastructure. a. This organization will work on implementing human methods of controlling population as well as vaccinating the dogs for rabies. It will also rescue the many injured animals frequently hit by cars, or suffering from a skin disease or illness. Below are some eye opening statistics about the strays of India.

- India has the highest number of stray dogs in the world.

- A day doesn’t go by when you won’t encounter one on the streets, either lingering near the garbage dumps or lying in some corner of the street resting in the shade.

- Dogs lack food, vaccination and shelter.

- Each day, we come across a number of helpless stray dogs fighting for their painful existence.

-The dog population is growing.

- The stray dog problem is exponentially growing in overcrowded cities of India, and even in smaller towns like Dharamsala where we focus our work.

- 1 HUMAN dies of rabies every 9 minutes

- It is on the list of one of the most neglected tropical diseases. Rabies epidemics have transformed this challenge into a global public health priority.

- 54,000 people die of rabies every year

- 60% of rabies deaths are children under 15

- By reducing the incidence of rabid dog bites in India by just 5%, we will prevent the death of 1,500 children per year

- There is no cure for rabies, but it is 100% preventable
