Animals Matter To Me (AMTM), an animal welfare shelter based out of Mumbai, is organising a birthday party for 1,200 stray dogs on September 9. And you are invited!
An animal welfare charitable trust, AMTM reaches out to distressed animals in need. The shelter feeds and provides immediate medical care and attention to animals that are considered unwanted across Mumbai and Bengaluru. AMTM is also involved in fostering, adoption, rescue, and vaccination programmes for the strays.
150 of these 1,200 dogs live in the AMTM shelter and will be present at the party. The other dogs are those from neighbouring areas. Volunteers from the shelter will carry food and toys on ambulances and will take them directly to the dogs.
If you have a special place for these furry friends in your heart, you can help the organisation by volunteering to cook, pack and feed the strays. Those who can’t make it to the event can help by sending food and other basic requirements. AMTM recognises that stray dogs are often labelled as unwanted and hence the volunteers go out of their ways to organise regular feeding sessions for them.
This looks like a great opportunity to meet other dog-lovers and to indulge in a full-day cuddle session with the dogs. Some dogs will also be up for adoption.
You can write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to sponsor a meal.
The event is being organised at the AMTM Rehabilitation Centre,Bungalow No. 14, Chikuwadi Road, Opp. Tulsi Bungalow, Lane opp. Jari-Mari Mandir, Marve, Malad (West), from 10.30 am to 8 pm. Contact +919819380310 or 022 28895572 for further details.
