In my last post I talked about “stray dogs in India” and I wrote about their sufferings and I’m sure that many of you who have read that post must have thought about doing something for these poor souls.
In this post I’m going to introduce everyone to the real heroes who are always there for the real victims. As we already know that there are various organizations for animals, to rescue them, to provide them medical aid, to provide them shelter, to give them protection and love around the world. These organizations work as a team and try their level best to help these poor souls out of their misery. These nongovernmental organizations depend on donations or whatever financial help they receive from donors. Sometimes I feel so contented when I think about these organizations or I see them helping these poor souls! I feel like there is someone out there to help these helpless animals. They are not huge in numbers but with more encouragement and cooperation I think we kan have at least one animal rescue organization in every town around the world! Kan you imagine how much this world will change if that happens.
Few days ago I came across a charitable organization through internet and I was amazed to see their work, that organization’s passionate work compelled me to write a whole post on them in my blog, because I wanted the whole world to see what I’m seeing, I wanted more people to get inspired and to get encouraged to do something for poor helpless animals around them. That organization is “Guardians of the Voiceless”. “Guardians of the Voiceless” is a non-profit Charitable organization in USA currently operating in India, that was formed with an aim of providing education and better health to the less privileged children and to rescue street or stray animals to provide them with shelter and better life. They not only help stray dogs, they help less privileged children and every animal they see in need of help. They become their perfect guardians. For me they are “the real heroes”. Guardians rely on donor funding and volunteer human resources to help the helpless children and animals. GOV is structurally organized as two different organizations, “Guardians of the Voiceless for Children” and “Guardians of the Voiceless for Animals”. Their aim is to promote life and a sense of kindness and responsibility towards animals through holistic education to our upcoming generations.
Guardians of the Voiceless was founded by Three Great people with a beautiful aim. First is Rajiv Mahajan, with an inexhaustible enthusiasm and unwavering faith, Rajiv has been a great resource to the organization. As the president, he has been on the front line in ensuring that the organization sticks to its core values. He has a lifelong passion for children and upholds education for all. His actions and contribution have greatly influenced the success of GOV. As a CPA, he inspires achievement and success to his team members.
Second is Luz Maria Gomez, the vice president, Ms. Maria Gomez is a true reflection of commitment, love and compassion. Her hard work coupled with her love for children and animals propels her to go extra miles for the success of the GOV. She has been the lead promoter of the GOV through social media and other channels. Luz Maria Gomez is also the brain behind the involvement of volunteer children in rescuing, treating and finding a home for them.
Third is Pankaj Arora the Operation Director in India. Pankaj primary aim is to raise a compassionate and caring generation by involving children and adolescents in rescuing and helping animals. His roles in the GOV includes responding to emergency calls and offering treatment and care of the injured, ill, or abused animals. Pankaj is also responsible for field coordination of volunteers and the execution of rescue plans.
I felt so proud after knowing this about the three founders, it is really amazing to know that in this brutal world there are still some people left for doing such great tasks. These three members have dedicated their lives to ensuring that the voice of the voiceless is heard.
The primary goal of the Guardians of the Voiceless is to talk for those who cannot talk for themselves. Their focus is on children and stray animals. Guardians rescues children from the pains of poverty and provide them education and the most heart touching thing is that they influence these children these beautiful souls to join their noble cause of rescuing and helping poor helpless animals. Most of these children had at one time faced hopelessness and Guardians have found the act of involving them in animal care to be psychotherapeutic. Guardians aim is to bring the social awareness that like humans, animals too experience pain and need someone to take care of them. The exceptional work that Guardians is doing is worth applauding. I feel so proud and relieved to have angels like them in this cruel world where some beast disguised as humans use inhuman means just to get rid of their pets, they poison them and leave them to die on road!
Guardians through their well trained and equipped team responds to calls on ill, wounded, and abused animals. Depending on the seriousness of the animal condition, Guardians treats the helpless animal on the street or carries it home for more care. Children and adolescents work in the rescue operation and they treat the animal with great care under the supervision of an elder. Once the animal is treated, it is either released to the streets or given for adoption depending on the circumstance. It is amazing to see how Guardians handle the wounded animal, they hold the poor animal in their arms, do the medical treatment with so much care that it melts your heart, The team Guardians are angels on earth.
GOV organization depends on donor funding and volunteers to offer services to the vulnerable. Guardians depends on well-wishers to see that the vulnerable receive food, treatment, and other basic needs! Apart from the local volunteers, Guardians welcomes help from abroad from countries such as the United States, France, England and Australia. Guardians of the Voiceless is currently operating in Patiala. It is a city in southeastern Punjab, in northern India. But we need them in every city, in every town of India and not only in India, in other countries too! And I have full faith that we kan do that by providing our full support, dedication and love to the Guardians. We need organizations like them everywhere in the world. They are the best!
Guardians makes it their duty to ensure a healthy and a disease free society by offering education on proper animal care and control. For many years, the society cruelty towards sick animals has left these helpless creatures in the hands of merciless individuals. Guardians of the Voiceless aims to end brutality against street animals. With the ongoing war against rabies in India, GOV organization is dedicated to ensuring a rabies free world by curbing the population of stray dogs through sterilization programs. Guardians treats stray dogs to a full recovery to avoid the spread of communicable diseases. Their goal is to eliminate cruelty towards animals while ensuring a healthy and disease free society.
GOV offers formal education to the helpless children and equip them with life survival skills. These children involvements in taking care of neglected animals is one way through which Guardians teaches them basic life skills. They take these children from loitering in the streets and engage them in productive and noble causes. Like humans some animals like dogs and cats need coping skills too and before sending them to an adoption shelter, Guardians trains them to adapt to the new shelters.
Guardians of the Voiceless believes that the campaign towards fair treatment, love and compassion for the people or animals should be taken beyond borders. GOV organization is currently operating in India and their aim is to expand their campaign to other countries as soon as possible. It is a noble cause and if Guardians has our support with them they kan help every single helpless poor soul on this earth! Guardians gives their love and compassion to the neglected and suffering animals by offering them treatment, care and find them a home too. GOV is in the first line in creating social awareness about the need for taking care of animals.
Guardians of the Voiceless has managed to influence a big number of people to be part of their campaign. According to the Guardians they receive 15 to 20 local calls on injures, abandoned or sick helpless street animals from their network of campaigners. Guardians has managed to build a strong team in their fight for helpless animals.
Guardians has saved so many animals, they have transformed so many furry lives and provided home to so many homeless stray dogs. I am going to share a story of a stray dog “Mitthu the miracle dog”. When I came across this story I could not believe my eyes, I saw the pictures and the dog was half dead when they found him! no one could have thought that he would survive but Guardians made this impossible task possible and today that stray dog Mitthu from Patiala Punjab, India is in America with his new parents. I know you all must be excited to see “Mitthu the miracle dog” so here is his story.
Few months ago, Guardians rescued a young pup that was near death by the side of the road, he was helpless as his lower body was completely dead, he could not move it, he was in cold and alone in rain, he was malnourished and was covered in wounds infested with maggots. Guardians was completely heartbroken! They were unsure how this happened to him and they did not know if he would survive. Guardians did not hesitate to take him with them and try to nurse him back to health. Guardians knew it would be a long road to recovery for him but they were determined to save his precious life.
Guardians fell in love with this sweet boy immediately and so did his new mom, Stacy. She contacted Guardians and told them that she was determined to add Mitthu to her family. Guardians warned her that he may never be able to walk again but she did not care, she only wanted to give sweet Mitthu a chance to be loved.
Guardians continued to work with Mitthu every day, little Guardians were helping too. It is for sure that their healing hands helped this broken boy recuperate. They applied medication and made sure he was eating well. Little by little he gained his weight back and his wounds started to heal. One of his wounds required two surgeries, fortunately the vets took care of that.
One day Mitthu completely surprised Guardians, he got up and started to walk on his own. It was an incredible feeling to see him standing and walking for the Guardians. Now he runs and play like a happy normal pup should do.
Few weeks ago Mitthu finally arrived at his new home in the USA with Stacy and her family. They told Guardians that he was so brave when he arrived. He came right out of his crate and into their arms. Now he is at home with his new brothers and sisters. He fits right in!!!
This story is like an inspiration for all the Animal lovers around the world and a ray of hope for all the poor helpless furry souls who are waiting for angels like Guardians to come forward to help them. Guardians have already won hearts, there are so many other stories where Guardians has done miracles. I really hope that more people will come forward to help Guardians of the Voiceless to spread their circle of help around the world because we really need people like them in our society. I am glad that I got the privilege to write about them in my blog.
YES YOU KAN!
