Weʼve raised £490 to DownwardDog To help neuter/ treat Indian street dogs back in my Hometown of Calcutta, India, as a Christmas present this year!

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The streets in India are full of stray dogs :( and the Government doesn't neuter them anymore. Every time a mother gives birth to a litter, she goes through so much effort only to find that most of her litter has been run over by cars. I live in the UK so I cannot help a lot with the dogs back home in India, but I go back once/ twice a year to visit my parents and my dogs. While I am there, I usually get at least 6 or 7 street dogs neutered, each time. This time, I thought I will make an effort to make a bigger contribution by neutering as many as possible. It costs Rs.1500 to neuter each dog which is about £17. I cannot do it alone and hence I seek your help to make the lives of those four legged friends who light up my life, everytime I hear the patter of their paws, when I walk down the streets of Calcutta, better & healthier. Neutering them would help us control the numbers and make looking after them more manageable. This money will also go towards treating them :)
Your contribution is much appreciated ! Please remember that every little helps.

I have donated to a few causes and sponsored a few sterilisations but I want to do more. So this is my first attempt to raise funds for our furry friends. I hope you will help me make it successful. It costs £17 to neuter one dog.
