How you can help

We rely fully on YOUR help to make this shelter project possible. There are a number of ways you can help:

We are a fully official Charitable Trust with 12A and 80G certification by the Income Tax Dept. (Exemptions)
But ASA receives no government funding, and relies on your donations only, to buy medicines, food and collars, cages, and salaries for the assistants and the vet.

In addition we require funds to develop the main shelter, which includes fencing, levelling of the hilly terrain and construction of the buildings.

    or restaurants a meal, to be given away in a raffle.

By reporting sick and injured animals:

But don't rescue puppies just because their mother is not around, she may just be out looking for food. Make sure their ribs are showing prominently, as a sign of starvation. If not, they have better a chance of survival with mother's milk, as it builds up their immune system. And think about the trauma, when your babies would be snatched.

A special thank you to Sampoorna Yoga Shala for their continued support
