Shelter runs an animal
This 21- year- old is on a mission— helping find homes for abandoned animals. Sadhwi was just 18 when she saw a litter die of hunger because their mother had died minutes after giving birth. “I was heartbroken and I knew I wanted to do something to help them. So, after completing my graduation from Sydney, I came back and launched Red Paws Rescue,” she says.
Today, she helps puppies get adopted, finds homes for abandoned adult dogs, and plans to start a sterilisation programme in Delhi. “The main problem is funding, so we often organise art exhibitions, where revenue from the sale of paintings goes towards animal welfare,” she adds. Sadhwi hopes to promote adoption of Indian puppies, who are given less priority over foreign breeds, and often left on the streets by families who get an exotic looking dog. “Indian dogs are extremely loving and very intelligent, but they always get a raw deal,” says Sadhwi. “And my aim is to make them popular and loved.”
Sadhwi has rescued many stray dogs, and helped give them a home
