Covid Crisis and Abandonment
Since the lockdown began and the country started dealing with the pandemic, street animals have dealt a cruel blow too. Due to people being confined to their homes, scores of poor animals had been starving and were in immediate need of medical attention in many cases.
The lockdown also had a severe effect on their psychology as being without human contact for such long periods of time was an alien concept to them.
During the pandemic, Sherry and Diya Foundation, noticed a rise in emergency calls for severely injured animals. Also, Sherry and Diya Foundation fed around 350 animals everyday.
Sherry and Diya Foundation dreams to build a happy world for vulnerable animals, Sherry and Diya Foundation has been feeding 700 animals on the streets of Mumbai every day, during the pandemic. They provide 100 kgs of freshly prepared food each day to the street animals of South Mumbai areas. They also run a helpline number (1800 123 1137) for injured animal cases to be reported and medically treated and shelter animals to be adopted by caring patrons.
Rakesh Kothari, Founder of Sherry and Diya Foundation, an NGO working to feed and medically assist street animals in Mumbai, said that since they started their feeding programs, dogs that previously used to run away from their ambulances due to fear then saw them as a source of food.
