1 Village, 91 Dogs, and 6 cats!
“Dogs With Heart”, a project from Heart of Ganesh and The Elephant Love Project, held the first Mobile Medical Outreach clinic at the village temple yesterday and everywhere you looked there were good families patiently waiting for hours for their dogs to receive free health care from the Heart.
If you aren’t familiar with village life, it might be difficult understand what it takes to not only arrange such a rural clinic and bring in the veterinarian from the closest town, but also to be a participant with your dogs. People came by foot, by 3-wheeler, and by tractor, with their dogs and cats in cardboard boxes, led with roughhewn rope, or carried on their shoulders.
Along with additional home-visits and medical intervention scheduled over the next few weeks for 26 of the sickest dogs, we’re also preparing for the second clinic in the next village. That our first outreach served almost 100 animals shows how important the work is, and how powerful the love is. Some days you serve one, some days you serve many, but all days give us an opportunity to create a kinder world for all…
My concern about whether anyone would show up was a bit unfounded! 91 dogs! We are just getting started ❤️.
