Introducing Debadrita Jadhav founder of Precious Paws.
3 questions from Team Leela :
1) Animal rescue, fostering, and finding the right parents for animals is no easy task. What made you create Precious Paws? What drives you to sustain it?
It all began when I lost my babies due to medical negligence and poor medical facilities. That was when I decided to take it up on myself to give the voiceless a voice. My passion to bridge the gap between expression and rationale is what keeps me at it. My family, especially my human babies, have been constant support and encouragement. Had it not been for their patience and love towards the many homeless pups I took care of in my rented apartment, I wouldn’t have been able to sustain Precious Paws.
2) I am sure you've experienced a lot of frustration and heartbreak in what you do, but give us an incident or experience that makes you have faith in our community and the city of Bangalore?
It is impossible to cite one incident or experience. The love I have received from Namma Bengaluru is tremendous. Just how there have been people calling to adopt only breed dogs, there have been many more who have been available for help at any time of the day or night. And let me tell you, they are all working professionals, with their own busy schedules, but, what sets them apart is their thoughts and action for stray dogs. Such people encourage me a lot, and restore my faith in humanity.
3)What are a few things people can do to help support organisations like yours?
Think. That is the most important thing someone can do to support. Think before you act. Think before you throw a stone at a dog. Think before you decide to give them away. Think, most importantly, before you bring home one. If people start acting responsibly and with kindness, organisations like us will not have to operate. I want to be able to help create a world where humanity triumphs.
