Guardian Angels

Please do be a partner in this wonderful work and sponsor a dog of your choice for just Rs.12,000/- a year.

All these dogs you are about to meet, were helpless on the street before they came to IDA. They are the elderly, abandoned, have health problems, blind or are handicapped with special needs.

We believe that like our human companions they too deserve and have the right to live in safety and comfort. Their needs are simple, and they appreciate everything we do for them and if they are content, well fed, healthy and happy, we know we have done our job well.

With your kindness and generosity, you will make every difference in allowing us to help them.

 

BELLA

Hi, I'm Bella and i'm a very good-looking high energy fun loving girl. I was brought to Deonar Centre by the Night Van, almost two years ago as I had a bad maggot wound and needed to be hospitalized until it healed. I was brought all the way from Sethia Nagar - Saki Naka, and I am very grateful that some kind person called the van to take me in for treatment.

I was having trouble seeing things on the road and I was a bit scared about this. It was during my stay here that the kind Doctors noticed that I had developed cataracts in both eyes. So here I am, happy and safe and well-fed and also loved. But I'll let you know a secret.

I'd just love to have a Guardian Angel all to myself and I hope it will be you.

JOCK

Hi! My name is Jock and I have been at the Deonar Centre from 2014.

I used to stay quite close by in Chembur at Navjeevan Nagar, but for some reason, I started having trouble seeing anything on the road. In Chembur there is a very good person called Rajesh, who has been caring for and feeding a whole lot of us dogs on the road for many years. As soon as he notices that one of us is sick or having some difficulty, he contacts the team at IDA India Deonar. It was he who understood that I was going blind and he was right. Now I can't see anything! But for us dogs that's not much of a problem. Our noses work very well indeed. As long as I can smell my friends around me and get the exciting smell of the good meal that is served twice a day, that's enough for me!

But I still need a special person; a real Guardian Angel. And I think that might be you!

SHIVA

I'm actually a strong young dog and I had come in some months ago as I had been in a fight. Yes, I had a big maggot wound and I stayed at the Deonar Centre for a couple of months until it healed fully. I'm from quite close by; Ambedkar Gardens in Shivaji Nagar (hence my name!). I was fully healed, operated and enjoying my life back at my locality when something really bad happened to me. I was sitting nearby a Welding Shop while work was going on. Suddenly, some sparks flew straight into my eyes! It really burnt and I was taken at once back to Deonar Centre with the help of my friend Santosh. There after treatment, the Vets discovered that I couldn't see! Since then I have been here, and my kind care-takers are trying everything in their power to help me and soon I will be going to a specialist who will examine my injured eyes and see if my sight can be restored. In the meantime, I'm enjoying life at the Centre. We are all waiting for our Activity Centre to get ready as we will all be able to explore and stroll about to our hearts content. Life is good at the Centre, but only one thing is lacking.

I really need a Guardian Angel to make my life complete. May be it's you.

ALFIE

My name is Alfie and I'm from a very nice area - Kalina University Campus. The BMC Van one day in July 2017, brought me to this lovely Centre for my ABC operation. But in the process, it was found out that I was going blind. My condition slowly became worse and now I can't see at all. Fortunately, I am at this Centre where us blind dogs are really cared for so well.

As soon as you chose me and become my Guardian Angel, my life will be happier still.

MOTI

I'm a big handsome guy who still likes to play even though I grew up long long ago! I'm from the Mata Devi Temple area in Kanjurmarg near the highway. I have a lot of friends there and some of them noticed I was having trouble with my eyes. When I was brought to the Hospital in Deonar in July 2017, I had to have surgery on one eye. No problem, as I had the other eye. But then I developed cataract in the second one. Now I am at the Centre and having the time of my life. Love meeting people - humans are great!

All I want now is a special Guardian Angel of my very own.

JEWEL

I'm a lovely girl from Wadala and have stayed there for a number of years. One day a kind young woman noticed I couldn't see. It might be the bump I got on my head some time ago as it makes me go around and around and I have problems walking in a straight line. We always have medical attention in the lovely place I stay in now. This is in Deonar and I am a beloved ward of IDA India. Vets check us all the time, and those of us who suffer from blindness are sent to a specialist and given special medicines to help our conditions. Love everything about this place, but most of all I love the garden. I spend the whole day walking on the grass and really enjoy this. People are kind here and I get a lot of visitors and patting on the head, which I like so much. Now what I really want is a special person to be my Guardian Angel. Hope it is you.

MISSY

I'm a very shy young dog and my name is Missy. In September last year, I started having trouble with my eyes. They look normal, but I just can't see. A kind lady Rita brought me all the way from Kalina, Santa Cruz East to this lovely Hospital in Deonar. There are many blind dogs here, under treatment and very well looked after. I too like the place very much and I am quite safe, very well fed and free to go out of our enclosure and walk around the big garden made specially for us. All of need a Guardian Angel and many of my blind doggy friends have already got theirs. Now I am waiting for my own very special person to choose me. Hope I get lucky. Waiting for you.

SILVI

My name is Silvi and I've come from here all the way from IDA Turbhe Centre. I used to live in the Koparkhairne location, near the Ward Office and l had a few friends there. One of them noticed that I was losing my sight, and called IDA Turbhe. I was taken in and lived there for 3 years which were quite pleasant as I was surrounded by people taking good care of me. Dr Parab, the Incharge, decided I would do great in Deonar which has comfortable arrangements for very old and blind dogs. So here I am. I must say, I like it here - lots of company, comfy places to relax, our own garden and two good meals a day. Most of my new doggy friends tell me they have Guardian Angels. I'd really like to have one too. This is Silvi, signing off, and waiting for my own Guardian Angel.

GOLDIE

Hi, I'm Goldie and I used to stay at the IDA Panvel Centre until it closed down. I had been rescued in Panvel off the road, by a kind person - the type who always helps animals in distress and I was taken to the Centre to be checked and looked after as I had slowly lost my eyesight completely. From Turbhe, Silvi and I were shifted to the Deonar Centre. I really like the place mainly because I have a lot of areas to explore - even though I am blind, my nose works very well!! Our enclosure is nice and airy and kept very clean. We have good food every day and get to meet the friendly volunteers who come in now and then to help out. I like the staff and the Doctors who watch over us daily. But like all my new friends in the Blind Ward, I need a Guardian Angel - hope you will choose me soon!

ELLA

Hi, my name is Ella and my home is this very pleasant Centre at Deonar. I was born in Ghatkopar and grew up there. But as I became older, life became a little more difficult. One day, on the dangerous roads, I got a bad leg injury. It was painful but I have always had good people around who watched over me. A kind young IDA India Volunteer brought me into the Deonar Centre for treatment quite some time ago: July 2019. As I was being treated, my other ailments were discovered. I couldn't see very well and as I grow older - it just gets worse. But I'm really happy to tell you that I am now a resident of the IDA Centre, well fed, well looked after and as comfortable and safe as can be. Don't want for anything except that I would love to have my own Guardian Angel, like all the other Blind Dogs in this ward. Waiting for you.

PARI

My name is Pari and I have come to stay at this very pleasant Centre just a few months ago. I'm from very close by - Lallubhai Compound, Govandi. I used to live in this location, but slowly I noticed that I couldn't see things very clearly, and in quite a short while, I discovered that I couldn't see anything at all. This was quite a problem as now I could only use my nose to locate food or water when I felt thirsty. The road I stayed on was also quite dangerous due to the traffic. Luckily, I had a good friend who arranged for me to come to the IDA India Deonar Centre. where I am now living a very good life, I must say. All comforts are provided and I really like the good food we get every day. I have made good friends in our special blind ward, and now I just need someone to make my life complete. That's you my dear future Guardian Angel!

JOEY

I'm from Malvani in Malad and Zi came to this lovely Centre in November 2019. I had eye problems and was slowly going blind. People living in my locality used to hit me with brooms and sticks if I tried to sit down in any spot to rest. One young lady used to come to my rescue and tried so hard to keep me safe. She even went to the local Police Station, but the cruelty didn't stop. So one day, she put me in a rickshaw and brought me to the IDA hospital in Deonar. My friend cried when she left me here, but it's such a nice place. Now at last I'm sage, well fed and so well looked after. They even have me a name. It's Joey. All I need now is my own Guardian Angel to help with my care.

RAJA

Hi, my name is Raja and I am talking to you from the very pleasant Ward in the IDA Deonar Centre. I was found at the beginning of the famous lockdown by a couple of kind people. My location was at the Parel ST Bus Depot. Because everything was so nice and quiet, I started roaming about a bit. As I am blind, this was dangerous, so my friends managed to send me to safety in this Centre. I just love it here. I can sit in the Sun, tasty meals are served. I have a health check now and then and to wander, I have an attached garden!! Now I'm waiting for my very own Guardian Angel.

SPARKLE

Hi, I'm Sparkle, talking to you from the Blind Ward in IDA Deonar Centre. I'm only four years old, but I'm here because both my eyes are damaged and I can't see at all. Luckily I was picked up by the BMC Van and brought here and I'm really happy that I am in this lovely place. Already I have been sent to the Eye Doctor who has prescribed medicines to help my eye condition. The people here are so kind and I've made many friends already.

My dear new Caretakers need lots of help looking after me. So as for me, I'm just waiting for a Guardian Angel who can help them do just that!

PASTA

Before I came to this nice Centre, I did not have a name. But here I was named Pasta - which I quite like. Everyone calls me this, and I love hearing my name! You see, I'm blind, even though I am not yet two years old. A kind lady in my Chembur location noticed my condition and brought me here. It's just wonderful and now I'm safe, well-fed and have lots of friends. I even got an appointment with the Eye Specialistlike all the other blind dogs. We are helped in so many ways.

Now all I need is a sweet Guardian Angel to help out with my care. Waiting for you!

MIYA

My name is Miya and I have taken up residence in this very nice IDA Deonar Centre. I'm from Parksite Vikhroli and have a lot of friends there who looked after me very well. A few weeks ago I got a bad injury on my front leg and I was slowly losing my sight as well as I am quite old now. For these reasons, my friends brought me to the Centre where I will be safe and well looked after. Everyone here is pleasant and kind.

Now I just need some help from one more kind person, maybe that's you. Will you be my Guardian Angel/ Do let me know.

STRAWBERRY

I'm a very old dog and I have lived for many years in the same locality in Chembur. A few weeks ago, I collapsed in a local garden I used to go into now and then. I just couldn't move or get up. I was lucky that day. A very kind person came along and found me lying there helpless. He contacted the IDA Centre and a van was sent to take me there. Now that I'm here, conditions couldn't be better. Tests were taken, my medication was started, I get such tasty meals every day and I can also go into our special garden where I am perfectly safe. Only one thing is left.

I need a Guardian Angel like all the other old dogs. Anxiously waiting for mine.
