Sophie Memorial Animal Relief Trust: A sanctuary for old and disabled dogs.

We are a special needs rescue that focuses on old and dogs with all kinds of disabilities. Old and disabled dogs face a brutal and tough life on our streets. We plan to make a forever home where these voiceless can spend their life happily. Only you can help us do it!
From neurological issues and spinal injuries to paralysis and mobility issues, we rescue and shelter them all. Dogs who come to us are evaluated by specialists and started on whatever therapy is needed, be it hydrotherapy, acupuncture or good old fashioned physical therapy to help them recover. Even the worst of the cases are given a second chance at a happy, healthy life! These dogs may be broken in body, but not in spirit and they all deserve as much chance to live a happy and abundant life as us.
We had been trying to make a forever home for these Special Dogs and were focused on finding a land most suitable for building a forever home for Dogs with Disabilities. We were limited by either very expensive land, resources or the climate being too cold, too hot or too humid. And our prayers were answered when a local Real Estate Dealer offered us 4 Bighas to build the Sanctuary.
Currently, we rent the place where these special dogs reside and face problems of being flooded, or being bitten by poisonous reptiles. This campaign is a first step towards building the forever home for special needs dogs. We will begin by fencing the land. Once fencing is complete construction of Eco Kennels will be started.
