Ayesha Chundrigar Foundation’s new animal shelter is now up and running

Ask any animal lover in Karachi if they’ve heard of Ayesha Chundrigar Foundation and you’ll hear nothing but good things about all the non-profit does for animal welfare.

The organisation rescues abandoned and/or abused stray animals and provides them with food, shelter, free medical treatment and rehabilitation.

The foundation has now opened the doors to its new and improved animal shelter in the city after moving base four times in the last three and a half years. The shelter currently houses over 240 animals, ranging from cats and dogs to donkeys.

Speaking to Images, Ayesha shares, “All the money for the new place has come from donors. We’ve tried really hard to make it like a sanctuary for the animals because we’ve gotten so many of them who have been abused and have to come to us in extremely dismal states.”

The organization has moved base 4 times in the last 3.5 years and has finally found a permanent home now

The new place is located in Malir Cantt, which Ayesha believes is the ideal location.

“Legally, this was the best place for us to set up. With so many dogs and other animals in one vicinity, there are noise issues within the inner city.”

When asked if the location poses an inconvenience for prospective pet adopters, Ayesha explains: “It’s a nice smooth drive and I feel people who really want to give these animals a home will make the effort.”

“We have a very strict screening adoption process due to the fact that we’ve seen how some of these animals have been treated in the past; many have been abandoned, abused by their previous owners. So we feel it’s a good sign if people who might give them a new home are taking out the time to come to the shelter,” she adds.

May they visit our area of Sohrab Goth. It is the richest for stray dogs. We can offer her to take them all.

@U Z Kazi A Human can ask for food because he can speak, an animal can’t. A Human is intelligent enough to ask for help, a stray animal can’t. Lets encourage those who are doing!

@Naxalite and also cats, dogs and donkeys do not kill others when starving

ALIABOUT 16 HOURS AGO

@ Naxalite A Human can ask for food but still goes hungry and live in poverty and no shelter, where as animals are given proper care and 3 to 4 time meal where as human can’t even have one proper meal a day. so lets encourage to help human first along with so called animals.

This is very heart warming news. Animals are also God’s creation. We must not ignore to take care of them.

IBRAHIMABOUT 15 HOURS AGO

A great initiative! It is reassuring to know that all decent and kind things that human beings do have not been lost to the ravages of time. Many years back, Lady Constantine had a similar program going in Karachi. Hats off! to the young people who have picked up the torch.

DR. SARKARABOUT 15 HOURS AGO

Excellent! A big thank you.

AHMED ALI KHANABOUT 15 HOURS AGO

The best way to be nice to animals and mother nature is to put a stop to human population explosion. Once we do it, we have realistic chance of conserving and rehabilitating wild animals and plants !!!

ASIF ALIABOUT 14 HOURS AGO

What a beautiful thing in this cruel world!

ADD (CANADA)ABOUT 14 HOURS AGO

@U Z Kazi They should be smart enough to make a living. Animals have no say. A very great scantuary for abused animals. May God shower his blessing on all the workers.

ADD (CANADA)ABOUT 14 HOURS AGO

@Ali I think you missed a HUGE point. This place is built for abused animals not animals properly cared at homes. Try reading the article once more slowly.
