# PAWS Founder Nilesh, organization a seminar on First aid For NGO Spark on 6th May

Following day’s posters made and circulated:

Various NGO’s are fighting on a day-to-day basis on the streets to rescue animals, look after them, try and give them a better life than the streets’ – Hunger, Cold, Heat & struggle for survival. This made us stop and think for a moment…we decided to takeup the cause at a larger scale & started PAWS. We face thousands of hurdles each year, with compassion under the PAWS Banner. People assume that NGOs’ must provide on-lip-call service, free service, and round-the-clock service anytime there is an emergency with an animal on street, highway & so on…
However, very few think about the what goes behind providing these services; handling daily help lines, rescue calls, wildlife rehab, services on time, staff management, getting resources like food, medicines, money etc. But some kind-hearted people think beyond an injured animal on street.
