What We Do
Dogs of the Ganges partners with local animal charities in India to provide medical care to sick and injured dogs, run animal birth control (ABC) and anti-rabies (AR) camps, and provide educational resources about animal care to people in India.
We are an entirely volunteer-run not-for-profit organization based out of Toronto. We raise money in Canada through donations and events, which fund medications, vaccines, veterinary costs, educational material, and other costs related to rescue and care of the dogs.
Our current project is in Varanasi, India. Dogs of the Ganges Society has partnered with the Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations (FIAPO) to build an animal protection movement in Varanasi and to enable individuals to reduce the suffering of animals in this city.
This project will be delivered by local staff that:
- facilitate training workshops
- organize community events to encourage compassion towards animals
- conduct outreach/education programs in schools, and
- set up a network of locals who are trained to identify, treat and refer injured or sick street dogs.
Dogs of the Ganges Society and Mayhew International (UK) are the primary funders of this project.
