Thousands of dogs struggle to survive on the streets of New Delhi, India. Operation Paws for Homes (OPH) shelter partner Kannan Animal Welfare (KAW) is an animal rescue organization in New Delhi that rescues these dogs. Many dogs living on the street are hit by cars, develop serious medical conditions, and suffer from malnutrition. KAW rescues sick and injured dogs and provides medical treatment.
Some lucky dogs are then transported to OPH to find loving forever homes in the U.S. We are raising funds to provide veterinary treatment and bring dogs to the U.S. to start a new life!
Operation Paws for Homes (OPH) and Kannan Animal Welfare (KAW), an animal rescue organization in New Delhi, India, are working together to transform the lives of street dogs.
The KAW team works tirelessly to rescue sick and injured dogs living on the streets. There are approximately 30 million free-ranging dogs living in India. In New Delhi, where KAW is located, there are nearly 500,000 dogs living on the street. These dogs are frequently injured by vehicles, suffer from disease and malnutrition, and survive by eating garbage. Two-thirds of puppies born to street dogs die before three months of age, and eight out of ten die before reaching one year of age.
OPH is raising funds for the cost of the airline charge, export permit, crate, microchip, and health certificate needed to bring the rescued dogs to the U.S. Funds are also used to cover veterinary bills for injured and sick dogs at KAW. Once these KAW dogs arrive in the U.S, OPH will find forever homes for them.
Thank you for giving what you can. We are grateful for your support!
