Streeties are very vulnerable and often get injured. This could be due to an accident, a fight, conflict with humans or communicable diseases. The founder of CARE believes that these dogs deserve the same kind of medical intervention that our pet dogs do.

If you are in Bangalore, this shelter is a must visit, just to show you the best facet of humankind
