Dear Animal Lovers & Friends,
Many of you must have received our New Year Appeal by now or within a day or 2 you will receive it. This mail is in regards to that only.
As you are aware, we started rescuing animals @ our own center @ Murbad & we are successful in rescuing hundreds of animals,abandoned pet . This difficult task would have not been complete with your active voluntarily & financial support over the years. I am always greatful to you for the same.
But, time now have come to explain all of you the problem which PAWS faces in day-to-day running & list of items that we are need always to help our furry friends…
At  Murbad Rescue Center, we have now 1 care-taker, 1 LSS (Para vet), 1 Visiting Vet, 2 Security Guard & in office we have 1 Manager, 1 Helpline Assistant  & 1 Ambulance driver. The cost of salary goes every month which is Rs.50,000/- exactly. We also have following bills to be paid each month.
Deep Medical – Medicines/Vaccines – Approx. 5,000/-
Helpline Bills – Approx. 2,500/-
Vichare Courier – Approx. 1,000/-
Staff Welfare, Medical & conveyance – 3,000/-
Ambulance Maintenance – 10,000/-
Ambulance Fuel – 25,000/-
Internet Bill – 450/-

Hospital Utensils & Cleaning – 3,000/-
Dog Food – 15,000/-
We require a minimum amount of RS 1,00,000/- (One Lakh) in our bank accounts to continue working for welfare of animals, otherwise it is difficult to survive each month. This is the reason I had sent mails to all of you! Guys i kindly request you all please donate now & help us in continuing our crucial work for helping Animals!
Let me remind you that we do not have FCRA, so we cant receive any foreign funds except from few friends who send small amounts via their Indian contacts. We do not receive a single penny from Govt. as grant & we are solely dependent on kind donations from everyone of you.
If you donate a specific amount every month, I would be more grateful & I can concentrate more on Local Wildlife rescues, Rescue Center Management, Ambulance Service & Helpline Assistance rather then running around to get required funds.
We would be happy to receive the following things as donation every month
Empty Gunny Bags – winter season – dogs to sit on
Dog Food / Cat Food / Cattle Feed
5 Liters Dettol
Brooms & Cleaning Material
Metal Containers
Dog Biscuits
Gloves & Face Muzzle
A) We are desperately looking for a sponsor to build shed over kennels which will cost approximately Rs.5 Lakhs, which will prevent leakage in kennels. the recuse centre main building is 15 years old & now urgently needs heavy maintenance.
B) We desperately need funding of Rs. 1.5 lakhs for setting up 3 solar road lights & lighting system for entire staff quater with mobile charging points. This will ensure that our staff can properly look after animals at night.
C)  Reconstruction of Toilets, Security Cabin, Water Tanks & Plumbing work pending worth Rs.40,000/-
D) We have 3 ambulances, out of which one is broken and cannot be further used for rescue work. From the remaining 2 ambulances, one is being used for rescue work and travels more than 100 kms daily. The 3rd ambulance i.e. Maruti Eeco is a wildlife rescue ambualnce which is also being used for vaccination drives and awareness programs. Both the Maruti Omni’s are have been used for more than 6 years and have already run more than 150,000 kms. We are in need of NEW ambulance. If anyone has any contacts, please pass it on, I will approach them directly…!!
We desperately require funds! Please Help Help Help!
