The majority of India’s some 30 million stray dogs live on the streets. Scavenging for food amid garbage heaps, dodging cars and raising litters, it’s a daily battle for survival. Many fall sick or get injured and many more die young. It’s a serious problem that can be addressed with the right amount of resources.

Spaying and neutering helps reduce the number of unwanted puppies born each year, which in turn reduces the number of dogs ending up on the streets. It also has health benefits for individual dogs, making them less likely to contract diseases and increasing their life expectancy.

CHAL USA has worked with animal welfare organizations across India for ABC-AR (Animal Birth Control and Anti-Rabies vaccination) of stray dogs for the past ten years. The results speak for themselves. Fewer dogs over the course of time, healthier animals and less disease and better communities are left in the wake of ABC-AR camps.

In 2022, we awarded grants to HAS-Coimbatore, Thane CPCA- Thane and Raigad , HOPE & Animal Trust-Varanasi and Sarnath, CUPA-Bangalore and Blue Cross of India-Chennai. Please visit our website for details of our projects and more.

The numbers are daunting but we keep chipping away at it, one dog at a time.

Thank you for your generous donation, you are making a huge impact for these animals in the most desperate of circumstances. Look into the eyes of a stray dog and it’s a peek into a struggle to survive, hope and an opportunity for each and every one of us to make a difference!

If you’re interested in helping India’s stray dogs, please consider supporting our spay and neuter program. Every dog we can spay or neuter makes a difference!
