In India dogs and cats are every where on the street living under unprotected and abandoned life . In SMILE family we have a big love for domestic animals basically dogs,cats and so we made a small shelter in 2009 where we take care of few dogs and cats on regular basis. There are huge number of street dogs and cats who are roaming unprotected and struggling for the life and shelter.There are almost no management system from local government available for these animal.There are long and short term volunteering opportunities available every year for these poor needy animals. Activities:- Volunteers job are mostly food preparation,distribution,grooming,shelter cleaning ,taking care of dogs at our shelter and reconstruction of dog shelter. We welcome international individuals or groups to help and look after these domestic animals during the camp. It is a fun filled experience for volunteers!!
