Contribute for A Good Cause: Friendicoes Needs Your Help

No, I am not asking for some kind of shopping relief fund(not that I don't need it but that's a different story altogether).

Friendicoes is a NGO which has spent 31 years serving the voiceless. You can check out their Facebook page here.

Why Do They Need Your Help?
A car flew over the last section of Friendicoes defense colony flyover  today morning at 1:30 AM- Drunk driving caused 22 animals hurt, one puppy dead.The men escaped alive as our cages bore the brunt of their stupidity. They suffered a damage worth 15 lacs.

They would be *really grateful* if you could help. Nobody is asking you to shell out large amounts of money but if you could help with whatever you can manage, they could really use it!!

What's in it for you?
Apart from the Thank you(s) of the animals at the shelter and the team, the donations made are deductible from the taxable income.

Also, if you stay in Delhi or somewhere nearby, you can giveaway old clothes, sacks, etc

Their Story:

Friendicoes SECA began with tiny premises 17 sq ft in the heart of Delhi in a shopping complex, a bare shop with a curtain for its fourth wall, with no electricity or water. Within the first week of our starting a clinic cum shelter we had 27 dogs and 12 cats in residence, these being abandoned pets and hit and run animals rescued by us in a beaten down ancient fiat car belonging to the mother of ...our executive member Mrs.Geeta Seshamani. Undoubtedly we were catering to a deep community need, for people continued to come to us to help the stray animals on the street that did not have a place to be safe in.

Today, the city shelter has grown to triple its size, we have a country sanctuary to house our permanent residents and run a vast ABC program to control stray dog populations. In addition we look after and find homes for abandoned and rescued animals and run a mobile equine clinic!

A lot has changed in the past 30 years but our love and commitment remains the same.
