A Gurgaon teen on a crusade to provide shelter to stray dogs

February 26, 2016

"It is nice to think beyond the self,says Shiksha Sagar, student at  K.R.Mangalam World School,Gurgaon  and a teenage volunteer at Feed a Dog Campaign by Dhyan Foundation. She created a Dog shelter from a pocket money. She further speaks," "Animals are an important part of the ecosystem...as citizens it is our responsibility to take care of those around us. I saw this initiative on social media shared by a friend so I connected with Dhyan Foundation through my mother and they helped me build this in my area. With a little pocket money, I got these strays a place to stay warm.  Even though it was very difficult for me, I didn't give up and because of the constant support from my mother and my brother, I finally built this dog shelter where any dog could come and protect itself from the shivering cold, Sun's heat or rain outside.From my savings I  feed hungry dogs with milk and bread every day. This step made me understand that life is not only about serving for oneself. If one has the resources and the will then he or she can accomplish any task that will help the other. I dedicate the success of this dog shelter to my mother as she introduced me to Dhyan Foundation that not only teaches about helping the needy but also makes us believe in Yog and the power of Karma which makes us a better human being.”

Dhyan Foundation through its Feed a Dog Campaign works  for the betterment of lives of homeless dogs. Yogi Ashwini , founder of Dhyan Foundation says," Street animals have no place to go, no blankets to protect them and no protection against harsh winter, summer's heat and rains. Many die on the street by freezing in winter and by thirst in summer and many are crushed under vehicles, some get maimed for life.‎ A simple act of providing shelter to them can go a long way into keeping you to do your duty towards Creation. It will improve your karmas and give you a better life and the dual purpose of protecting the weak will also be fulfilled."

The young and enthusiastic volunteers under the aegis of Dhyan Foundation have come out with a novel way to help the stray dogs find shelter by involving communities to undertake building of small shelters in their localities. After identifying safe spots in the area, various shelters have come up in Delhi made of bricks, wood, cardboard, adorned warmly with rugs and newspapers to keep the dogs warm. Dhyan Foundation gives an opportunity to animal lovers to ease winter woes of stray dogs by providing a place to stay in their familiar terrain and habitat. The initiative aims to also foster community spirit while taking the responsibility of taking care of animals in their areas. So far, volunteers have successfully built 25 shelters across Delhi in areas of Dwarka, Lajpat Nagar, Pankha road, Dera Gaon, Gurgaon, Model Town, Civil Lines, Delhi Cantonment, and continue to spread this movement.

All these volunteers hail from a similar ideology as they practice Yog under Yogi Ashwini. "It is the dharma of humans to protect and provide for the weak - humans, animals, trees - in the vicinity. In realizing this one becomes 'human'," expresses Yogi Ashwini of Dhyan Foundation.

Under Yogi Ashwini's guidance the volunteers at Dhyan Foundation have spearheaded innumerable initiatives to help the poor, homeless, sick and injured. Under the Feed A Dog (FAD) initiative, homeless dogs are fed, treated and sheltered at over 200 spots across the country every day and sterilization and immunization programs are undertaken regularly.
