"Save Our Strays is soon to complete 15 years and the journey has been very fulfilling for the team. SOS was started way back in 2003 by me when I moved to Andheri from Bandra. The appalling condition of animals in this area gave me nightmares and the only way to get peace of mind was to change these conditions. Every day I would step out to the sight of a dead dog and that was it. I really had only two options, to ignore it or do something about it and I chose the latter.
I was alone and realized the first thing I had to do was start sterilizing strays to control everything. That's when I spoke to Fizzah shah from IDA and we agreed that she would send the ambulance at least twice a month. We started in January 2004, and by the end of 2004, I had sterilized 125 dogs in my area. When I started initially I funded the whole operation myself. Later on, I started meeting up with some ladies who were feeding the strays in their areas and we all just clung together. All these women got together with me and in October our work finally got a name, SAVE OUR STRAYS
