Our 100 Dogs Initiative
Compassionate Paws International firmly believes in transparency and we want you to know that we take our promises seriously.
Thanks to the generosity of our 2020 sterilisation campaign donors, we are excited to announce that our goal to spay 100 dogs in Malaysia and India has been reached! We couldn't have done it without you!
We captured the adorable faces of the 100 dogs your donations helped and we hope you love them as much as we do.
The 100 Dogs Initiative was carried out in partnership with two incredible grassroots organisations who work tirelessly on the ground to improve the lives of street animals - Persatuan Haiwan Terbiar Hulu Langat (PATH) in Malaysia and Madras Animal Rescue (MARS) in Chennai, India.
Research shows that spaying and neutering programmes are the most humane and effective approaches to prevent homeless animals. Evidence suggests that the street dog population in an area will begin to fall when at least 70% of female dogs have been spayed.
This is why sterilisation remains one of CPI's most important goals.
The dogs were also vaccinated against common yet fatal diseases such as parvovirus and distemper. All dogs were returned to their respective habitats after recovery.
A further eight rescued dogs in the care of MARS were spayed in India.
The 100 Dogs Initiative was 100% funded from funds kindly donated last year, which raised more than $4,000.
The project is ongoing and we are excited to continue our collaboration with PATH and MARS to spay a further 30 dogs by the end of June this year.
CPI is proud to say 100% of donations goes directly towards helping animals. Our team is made up entirely of dedicated volunteers which means homeless street animals across Sierra Leone, Malaysia and India benefit from every penny donated.
