Let us introduce you to a really compassionate and helpful organization called Worldly Wags. Worldly Wags relentlessly works towards alleviating the lives of suffering animals through their various dog sterilization programmes and by providing all kind of support for dog lovers to take care of sick and injured dogs. Located in both Delhi and Dharamshala, Worldly Wags even runs a Recovery Center in Dharamshala where they provide space for change-makers to work on projects to help animals. To know more about what Worldly Wags does, Heads Up For Tails conducted an exclusive interview with Joellen, one of its founder members.
What does Worldly Wags do?
We are people dedicated to alleviating the suffering of animals. We have two locations, one in New Delhi and the other in Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh.
In West Delhi we run a sterilization program called the ABC Co-operative. We involve community members, vets, along with our post-op center and ambulance in a joint effort to sterilize pockets of New Delhi and keep them sterilized. (Read more HERE.)
In Dharamsala, we host a sanctuary for animals and creative people called Badmash Peepal. We offer a space where change-makers can work on projects to help animals. Projects like culture jamming, innovation, invention, education, or…any idea to reduce suffering!
In addition to this community, we operate a stray recovery center which gives a place to local injured and sick animals so they can heal before we release them. We have a small sanctuary with 6 resident dogs and 2 resident mules. There is an organic farm on the property to grow food for human residents and volunteers. (You can read about Badmash Peepal HERE.)
What do you guys need funds for?
Our aim is to reduce the suffering of all animals (non-human and human). We believe that every action should be done with this intention. Everything we do is for the benefit of others or for our survival. Our survival is for the benefit of others.
How can one donate/help/volunteer to the cause?
We are looking for volunteers in India or abroad. You can work on the farm in Dharamsala, check in on the post-op in Delhi, or work on the computer from anywhere…The only requirement is to do good work for animals!
