They say legends always wear capes, but that’s not true. Some raise funds and help streets doggos and floofs to be healthy and happy. This is exactly what Shivan Dewan and his friends are doing. They decided to help street dogs in and around North Campus area and eventually raised a fund of Rs 17,ooo through public crowdfunding. Paw-some, isn’t it?

Here’s how it all started. Six months ago, the group found an extremely weak and starving dog quivering in pain supposedly due to a pelvic fracture. They took her to the vet and ensured that she fully recovered. They even made a cosy cardboard home for her to play and rest in. The floof recovered from her fracture in two months. This little feat inspired them to help more such puppers around the area.

As many animal lovers came in support, Dewan and his friends finally managed to open a dog shelter at Patel Chest Hospital road. It is now a home for many little puppers and recovering doggos. The dog shelter is decorated with some cool graffiti and doggy-quotes. Soon after setting up the shelter home, Dewan and his friends started a crowdfunding campaign and were overwhelmed with the amazing support they received from like-minded people. The group has managed to raise Rs 17,000 so far, and have provided medical care and shelter to many dogs.

It’s great to see millennials taking such initiatives all across India to stop animal abuse and provide medical care. More and more people are now accepting street dogs with open arms and even adopting them. Go and help, Shivam and his friends on their mission because #AllLivesMatter.
