I am animal lover. I work independently for the welfare of strays. I do work on n off on my own little way, whatever in my capacity to do with NGO's like AMTM & Resq. I have adopted 8 strays in my area where we love in Pune, wherein I take care of their vaccinations, two meals in a day, the regular doctors visits and the doctors visits when they're unwell & sick or injured. I hope someday I can start an animal ashram of my own which I intend to do soon. I am working on developing & making an...

I am working on developing & making an ashram with state of the art facilities for X-ray facility for small n large animals... A operation rooms with a efficient panel of doctors on a 24x7 call. I hope I succeed in my endeavours.

I would love to volunteer if I can find a way to get there. Working with feral cats is my talent. I have had 3 formally feral cats at one point. I miss the work it takes to gain their trust. In fact, the dog who owns me right now was a rescue. I have yet to figure out who saved who. She keeps the house firmly under her control. I have just buried an old furry pal. I am going to go get another kitten asap, even if all the betas in the house snivel. I want one that trusts no human. Give her a...

I think it will be good for both me and the new kitty. I just have to convince my old mad about it. He knows I want to get another to fill the void. Shelter kittys are the best. The only way to go.

I volunteer 3 days a week at our small local shelter. All the animals want so much love, and I feel privileged to be able to work with these special cats and dogs to help them find their forever homes.❤

Jim, that is hard to believe.....what a shame. How they could turn away a compassionate person wanting to help is a travesty! No matter what your abilities or disabilities are, if you want to help, they can find something suitable for you that you can do to help the animals. There are lots of shelters and rescues and I think you should continue to look until you find one. You need to find the right fit. It is hard to believe that a shelter would discriminate in that way! The animals certainly don't! Keep trying and thanks for caring!

I currently have two adopted rescue dogs - Precious and Charlie. My life has never been the same! I would have more if I had the space, but in a one bedroom apartment, this is all I can squeeze in! I usually stay away from shelters because emotionally I can't take it - I want to take them all home, and because I can't, it upsets me. However, that is the worst excuse in the world, and I have to stay strong and get back in there. I used to volunteer, and now that I am a full time student...

I used to volunteer, and now that I am a full time student I have the time to do so again, so I am really looking forward to it! Since I have so much love to give yet can't open my home to more animals, I feel that I can take that love and go to the shelters and clean, walk, and just give the animals individual attention, which they need most of all. My two dogs are very traumatized from abuse and neglect and I want to do all I can to help others.

There are plenty of cats in shelters in this country if you still want to help!
