MOTI

 

    

 

It was the year 2002 that a hairless 1-year-old dog was brought by me to the shelter, which was still under construction.  Little did I know that this scrawny looking dog would one grow up to the beautiful Moti.

One day as I was driving past the Dayalbagh press I happened to see a dog lying by the road. Its condition was very pathetic. It was without any hair and flies were buzzing round it. This  sad looking dog was brought to our shelter and treatment was started.At the beginning its prognosis was grim. But we did not reckon with its willpower to live.

It was terrified in the beginning and would try and run away but time is a great healer and  bonds started to build up. It recognized the feeling that we wanted to help and not harm it.It also started to respond to the treatment . After the initial hiccups and a battle of suspicion and trust the latter emotion started to emerge victorious. The skin infection started to recede and a beautiful layer of fur began its appearance. It finally grew up to be the darling Moti as we had named it. Moti means pearl and true to its name Moti was a splendid specimen of a dog. It grew attached to family of the para-vet and began living with them. It loved to eat Parle G biscuits.

Moti was a very loyal dog. It would accompany the children of the para-vet to their school and would come back on its own. There are other incidents that indicate its faithfulness. Twice it saved the family from imminent danger. Once when a snake tried to enter the house it stood barking between the door and the snake The family came out and the snake slithered away . The second time it saved the mother of the para-vet. A scorpion was sitting on the slipper of the mother. It would not allow the mother of the para-vet to put down her feet into the slipper. Its barking attracted the other members and they picked the scorpion and let it out into the bush away from human habitat.

However this June after 11 years with the family the end was near.he fell ill and could not be saved. The same para-vet that saved many animals was helpless to save his own Moti. On 23 June Moti breathed his last, leaving behind a void hard to fill up. He is buried in the yard of the house of the para-vet.

  • Last month we received a volunteer, Jet, from Holland
  • The Horse project is a success and the owners have accepted us and our treatment. Every Sunday our team goes to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort area where the 'tongawalas' (horse cart owners) gather. We feed their horses and also distribute medicines which they require from us. They have accepted the fact that we truly care and have agreed to make ID cards. At a nominal price of INR 5/- every month, they will get the required ration for their horses. The expenditure for feding the horses every month is INR 15,000/- (~ EUR 180 per month). It would be a great help to PFA Agra if our well wishers can donate for this project and help us in continuing our efforts to improve the conditions of the working horses at Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.
