  • Animal shelter raises Rs. 10 lakhs on ImpactGuru.com to fund rehoming during COVID-19 Lockdown

    Published on April 9, 2020

    Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Kannan Animal Welfare (KAW), dog shelter in Delhi-NCR, has faced a big slowdown. KAW started in 2015, from a small shelter of 30, they now house over 110 dogs. While funds were ample initially, issues started in 2018, when the shelter started accepting fewer more complicated cases, resulting in a drop in donations. Due to COVID-19, all rehoming efforts by KAW are on halt, which has only increased the financial load on the shelter. Cost to run KAW on a monthly basis is close to 5-6 lakhs which includes regular expenses like food, salary, rent, and ongoing medical expenses. The funds are immediately needed to cover expenses for Feb, March and April.

    In order to prevent immediate closure, KAW started a crowdfunding campaign on ImpactGuru.com. So far, KAW has raised over Rs. 10 lakhs on their ImpactGuru fundraiser.

    Vandana Anchalia, Founder, KAW said “Thank you dear donors for your contributions so far. The team needs so much support and motivation to continue helping animals in dire need. Let us all come together to save KAW and help us create a bigger and better facility to help more animals in need. Your love in the form of donation will be highly appreciated.
