PEOPLE FOR ANIMAL WELFARE SERVICES

AWARENESS PROGRAMME

PAWS THRISSUR conducted its first awareness programme at Sandeepani Vidyanikethan for 5 days from 5.11.12 to 9.11.12 for classes 5 to 12. The first day was for children from the 9th,11th and 12th classes. Dr Binoy V.V ( junior scientist, NIAS) conducted the programme and created awareness on topics related to animal welfare and ecology. Many students joined PAWS THRISSUR as volunteers.

Dr Namita Prasad conducted the programme on 6th for the 8th std, 7th for the 7th std, 8th for the 6th std and the last day- 9th was for students from the 5th std. The programme was modified on each day, based on the age group. On day 3, the students had a great opportunity of meeting Droopy, an abandoned Cocker Spaniel, who was rescued and adopted by Sally and Kannan, members of PAWS THRISSUR. The students came forward to talk to Droopy and pet him, which showed that exposure to and interaction with pets,from a young age does help children to love animals and be compassionate towards them.

The programme concluded on the 9th of Nov with a class for the students of the 5th std and the principal of the school, Mrs Meera along with members of PAWS THRISSUR, planting 3 ‘Elangi’ trees, where a few messages to the children were displayed.

AIMS & NATURE OF ORGANIZATION


Preethi Sreevalsan

Founder, PAWS THRISSUR

As an individual , Preethi had been doing what she could for animals within her limited resources. She had rescued over 30 animals by 2012, including puppies, big dogs, kittens, cats, bull calves, birds and even a snake!

Animals cannot speak up and they need a voice to speak for them and dedicated people to work for them. With this thought in mind, she decided to start PAWS THRISSUR and registered it as a charitable trust in June 2012.

Aims

1. Spreading awareness against cruelty and about the need to develop compassion for animals among the general public, especially among children.” The child is the father of the man”, after all.
2. Rescue work and re homing
3. Regular ongoing street dog sterilization and vaccination programmes in order to bring down the numbers of stray dogs roaming the streets. This is the only proven way to curb the occurrence of rabies
4. A well equipped 24 hours clinic for injured or sick animals
5. A permanent shelter for sick or abandoned animals
6. A self sustaining Goshala to house stray cattle which roam the streets freely creating accidents to vehicles and injury to themselves and people. The waste products of the Goshala can be sold as manure.
7. Encourage supermarkets and stores to carry a line of anti cruelty products
8. Pet training and animal behavior programmes
9. Create a petting farm where children can visit and interact with young farm animals
