    • Founder: Kumael Hasnain
    • Mission: well to be honest its an endless effort .The primary mission is simple. “to give animals beings what they deserve ”..for years now they all have contributed a lot for our benefit. They provide us with Food , clothing , medicine , protection , work with us in some Way as the vital force ,they became the eyes for the blinds ,ears for the deaf and wheels for the disabled one, nevertheless THE LOVE THEY HAVE GIVIEN to us which I believe is more then what a human can give.
      The question that arises here is “WHAT HAVE WE GIVEN TO THEM?”
      Pain, torture, kill for fun, we cage them, just to have a sight and gave them nothing other then food; don`t they deserve freedom?
      For all the years, since the world started they gave each and everything they have. Even after a day full of torture they still give love in return and ask for nothing other then love.
      When I was a small child my father that time was in army and had to do a lot of traveling and I always used to go with him because I liked to explore new thing.
      one day I visited “larkana” there I saw one man beating his sick horse because he failed to pull the load on the cart after a long struggle he collapsed on the road and the owner unattached the horse and left him on the main road, This happened inside the in a city .I felt so helpless and I could feel the pain the horse was going through.
      Since I was a small child I had an affection with animals and I cant see them in pain.
      I was really touched on seeing the cruelty against animals and I thought of doing something , may even be very small to save the animals from the cruelty being face so it became my Ambition to save the animals .
      It may well be realized that I m a very small creature to do this alone and may not be possible without the kind support of all my friends collogues and we wishers. I’m not asking to make a force, I just expect everyone to look around and do what ever could be done in the close proximity and help the unattended poor animals.
      Many people didn’t support me at all saying that I should help humans first! Who is killing the humans? the answer is humans And who`s killing the animals the answer is still human. YES but I’m sorry to say but it is the truth, go out there and see it for your self. This campaign has few objectives on which we work here.:
      1.Rescue any type of animal who are injured, sick, orphan, homeless, newborn
      2.provide quality shelter. There we groom them , vaccinate them , and make them compatible for adoption.

      4. Provide medical assistance. We will soon launch a 24/7 toll free medical emergency phone line service which can be accessible in all Pakistan. It will be used for medical advisory.
      5. Awareness program for the public.
      Here in Pakistan things are very different .people DO care but its not enough.

Everyone will be welcome to come by and spend some time with them before they decide to adopt, to make the transition easier for both the animals and the adoptive family.

Why Adopt a Stray??

Well, b’coz it is morally good for human beings to be kind to Animals!! 

We all have choices, and  I don’t want to push my views on anyone … but there are ppl out there who think that you cannot teach old dogs new tricks … and adopting a dog is a waste of time and energy. Well, so far i have read, that’s never an issue .. if u take a bit of time out and invest that on a homeless pet, you can easily make him learn tricks. In fact, he will learn new stuff way faster than a new pup.

Cats are the same, my stray cat is far more loving and active than my own cat (Not saying i don’t love my Persian) but that is the truth.

I think on the whole its a wonderful experience, in fact  i think that helping out helpless animals make us more human!!!

And even if you cannot adopt a pet, i think you can still  make a difference: For e.g

  • You can feed a hungry dog or a cat standing outside your house.
  • You can place fresh water bowls outside.
  • You can call animal rescue service if you see an injured homeless pet.
  • You can donate food to our local animal shelter.
  • You can donate some medicines to a Vet who looks after injured homeless animals.
  • You can always stop someone abusing an animal in front of you.
Now few facts on how animals are treated in our part of the world:
  • They are kicked and thrown stones at.
  • They get hit by a car and left alone to die on the street.
  • They are poisoned.
  • They are shot.
  • They die of hunger.
How to adopt a Pet?
If you find a pet and you have decided on adopting him here are few things you need to do:
  • Take him directly to a vet and get him checked.
  • Get him vaccinated.
  • Get him/her spayed. (Few vets do that for no cost – just for strays)
  • For at least few weeks give him time to understand you & your family. And to make him gain your trust.
    • You see most animals are abused outside and that’s why they think that when you raise your hands, you are about to hit them & not pet them. So give him some time.
  • And most important thing, keep on reading about them. The more you understand your pets behavior the more rewarding it is in the end.


Ask from a Stray … how tough this world is for them: And then think if u should adopt them or not … 



You don’t pick your stray …. your Stray picks you!!!! (Two Most Inspiring Stories): 

What’s four when you have three?!

Here are the stories on my precious angels who make my life complete: Zoe was a local’s dog who nearly starved to death in his “care”. Her normal weight was 72 lbs.& she was 35lbs. when we got her. She was skin & bones but, as you can see, filled out nicely.

Shadow was a teeny pup, which I thought was a kitten, when I saw him running in the rain. I jumped out of the car & clapped for him to come & was surprised to see a little puppy. I tried for days to find his owner, but he became the joy and love of my life.

Jacques “Sasquatch” (because he had huge feet) was left in an abandoned house by owners who moved. We think he had been teased mercilessly by whomever, because it took a year for him to accept that when you put your hand on him and didn’t move it, it wasn’t reason to go for you. He became such a calm, loving, clown of a dog.

Finally, Precious was from the North Shore Animal League in NY. I wanted a docile female, so when she flopped over when I went to touch her, I knew she was the one. We took her home, fell in love, and then my brother-in-law visited and she went after his legs like crazy. Oops! She was ours now, so others had to learn to stay out of her way. We finally learned how to gently help her accept everyone and she turned out to be loved all around. It was as simple as making sure you absolutely ignored her until she came to you.

Please adopt or save a stray! They are the most blessed gifts you can imagine!

“Mojo” the Rescue Cat with the Biggest Heart”:

I grew up in a family that always had pets. We frequently rescued cats and dogs and lost creatures in need of a home. I was living on my own and it just didn’t feel right, so I went to my local shelter in search of a feline companion. I was given some treats to give to the cats and there she was, pawing at the cage door. I offered her the treat, but she just kept pawing at the door. They let me take her out and she was so comfortable being held in my arms. I knew she was the one. She was 2 1/2 and had been in the shelter for three months, but was still so happy, I almost cried. I moved back in with my family and she quickly became a permanent fixture. She loves to be loved and can play all day. She plays tag and plays with anything she can. In my family, when a cat gets very hyper and playful, we call it “gettin’ the mojo”, so the name seemed perfect for her since she was always running around playing with something. She loves meeting new people and can melt anyone’s heart. She’ll walk in front of the door so I won’t leave and she can put on the cutest faces to get me to stay. My whole family adores her and life just wouldn’t be the same if she wasn’t there. She always wants to know what you’re up to and doesn’t mind be carried around on your shoulder so she can be involved in everything. If you start patting her toosh, she’ll give you an hour to stop. She’s sweet and cute and so loving. I got way more than just a pet when I took her home that day.

Supere’ Memorial Animal Welfare Forum!!

  Do you think opportunity wonders around your house, looking for u to pick it up and look after it??? And then waits for u to take it to a next level?

In this story ….. our little opportunity was a Stray Cat named Supere’ and this is his story.

“Being a stray is not easy these days, im soooo hungry right now that i can actually eat a horse … even a rat would do or a cup of milk ….. wow!! how lovely would that be!! But who am i kidding, who would feed me milk??”. Hungry and tired, Supere’ continued his journey looking for food and a safe place to rest.

“What??? Why are they chasing me???? what did i do?? im just hungry, wish they could have at least let me eat from the trash area …..” after gettin chased by bunch of kids.

“Hide, hide, hide ……. “, Hides under a car!!, “Dammit, i think this place belongs to some other cat ….. ewww stinks …. “, he runs towards a house and starts praying that at least they let him rest there for few hours.

No one was around, so he quietly placed himself under a shade and went to sleep.

To his luck he woke up with a bowl of milk in front of him.  “slurp slurp slurp ….. slurp .. who?? why?? when did this happen?? slurp slurp slurp … ” He stops and for the first time saw the person he will stay with for the rest of his life. Mehvish!!!

She opened her heart and doors for him. Brought him in, cleaned him up, gave him food and a warm comfortable place to sleep.  NO MORE RUNNING, NO MORE HIDING (Unless its for hide n seek game), NO MORE STAYING HUNGRY, NO MORE CAT FIGHTS!!!!!

“On May 25, 2011, yes not very long ago, i left my beloved Master and went to another world. I often see her sad and i know she misses me alot and I miss her too ….. but im such a lucky cat, she cared for me when no one else did and now that i am not around, she actually created a Forum which is purely dedicated for the welfare of homeless, stray animals. And guess what …… 🙂 She named it after me: “Supere’ Memorial Animal Welfare Forum Pakistan”

Me & My Angel Mama – “Mehvish”

 Mehvish didn’t stop giving, even after Supere’ left. In fact Supere’ was not just a cat – he was more like an inspiration. Enough Inspiration to make a difference.

Today, Supere’ Memorial Animal Welfare Forum Pakistan contains more than 230 followers. And almost all of them are active and dedicated towards the mission of helping out strays. Many of them try finding suitable place for these homeless pets, others reject the idea of caging and selling cats.

Few words from the Fans about the page:

  • Rafia Syed: “This forum has proved your love for animals. I was one of the first members of the forum. I am highly impressed by the hard work and continuous effort of the page admin.Well done! Keep it up!”
  • Sana Sohail: “I have seen very few pages with such a vigilant and active admin. The forum is performing a very wide range of services simultaneously. The posts are really brilliant. The posts against declawing and dressing of cats were eye-openers. Also I have recently adopted a black kitten through this forum, for which I am thankful to the forum. Keep up the good work, admin. May God bless you for your efforts.”
  • Vasi Jamal: Pages such as these not only provide means for creating, and spreading, awareness about the critical issue of Animal welfare, but also enable pet owners to educate themselves about bettering the future of these wonderful voiceless creatures of Allah.
The main idea or Mission is to:
 Facilitate adoption of homeless animals, to create general awareness about animals’ rights and to fight against cruelty to animals. 
Plz join this page – Help Supere’ & his Angel Mama find home for their furry friends:
Dear readers, plz know that your Supere‘ is still out there, or probably right outside your home … waiting for u to bring him a bowl of milk and then to take him inside your house. BUT ARE YOU READY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE’S LIFE??? It’s for u to decide!!! Live well, but a Purposeful life!!!!

Remember “The Little Rascals”.

This is Petey with The Little Rascals.  Now, you can go on, on any website, go insane looking for stories of how these kids were in danger working with such Vicious and dangerous animal but i can only suggest you to not to waste your time.

“Nanny Dog” they were so called .. I mean, SERIOUSLY??? Pit bulls??? Nanny Dog??? You see, For generations if you had children and wanted to keep them safe you wanted a pit bull, the dog that was the most reliable of any breed with children or adults. (1)

How good was this dog in temperance test?? Well, In temperance tests (the equivalent of how many times your kid can poke your dog in the eye before he bites him) of all breeds the most tolerant was the Golden Retriever. The second most tolerant was the Pit Bull.(1)

Here are some pics to show how Dangerous they were:

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT???? More tests??? aite … last one, i promise …. just tryin to prove a point here!! So, I read (Yes, i do read alot) ..

According to rigorous testing by The National Canine Temperament Testing Association, the golden retriever, poodle, border collie, English setter, German pointer and numerous other breeds are considered more likely to become aggressive than Pit Bulls. (2)

The average score of the 122 breeds tested was a mere 77 percent. Pit bulls scored a 95.2 percent on these testings. (The higher the better.) (2)

Not only have pit bulls scored extremely well on temperament tests, but they have been serving key roles in search and rescue efforts, excel in agility training and work nationwide as therapy and service dogs. (2)

Speaking of Search n Rescue efforts: I recommend you to read about Weela – The Ken-L-Ration Dog Hero of the Year 1993. She saved 30 people, 29 dogs, 13 horses and a cat during a flood in Southern California. This same heroic dog saved her owner’s son from a rattlesnake. (3)

Read about Popsicle (4), Sergeant Stubby, RCA, or read about TahoeCheyenne, and Dakota they are the search and rescue dogs in Sacramento, California. The three pit bulls worked none stop at the World Trade Center and Pentagon after 9/11. They have participated in over 200 search missions. Also worked the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, and assisted in the search for Laci Peterson. (5)

Misperceptions about Pit Bulls:

“Absolutely, the No. 1 thing that the public needs to know is that just because an animal shows aggression to another animal, it doesn’t mean they’re dangerous to a person. … Greyhounds rip rabbits to shreds. … A well-bred pit bull can be devastatingly aggressive to other dogs if he’s allowed to be; however, that same dog isn’t necessarily going to be aggressive to other people. I think the important thing for people to know is that these dogs are victims and we need to include them in our circle of compassion.”

Diane Jessup, a pit bull owner & a retired animal control officer in Washington state. 

Thanks to our Media and ignorant people, this breed was transformed from “The Nannies of America” to “Some Dogs are Weapons – Ban Them”. 

This is all i can say, weapons are used in two ways, if given in the hands of a protector you feel safe and if found in the hands of a criminal ….. well then that becomes an issue. You don’t ban the weapon …. you punish the user for wrongfully using it. Pit Bulls rule!!!!!! and so does all the other breeds. 🙂

They Fight …….

“I believe there’s a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams.” – Spider Man 2

OK!!! Now that I have quoted Spider Man movie, let me introduce you to a club/society of people who are the REAL HEROES … n NO … they don’t fly around buildings or run faster than a speeding bullet ….

They do something that is much much cooler than all that ..   🙂

Meet 26th Street Puppy

March 11, 2011: A puppy hit by a car was picked up by a volunteer and brought to the Karachi Animal Hospital. We paid him a visit, and within few minutes we become absolute friends.

We need better emergency services, we need shelters, we need Govt to implement “THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS ACT, 1890” and we need to educate ppl.

The Shy One
(By Terri Onorato)

Hidden deep within her soul
a best friend lies in wait,
as passersby all but ignore
the shy one’s frightened face.

Abused? Or was she born this way?
That’s not the issue here,
attention to her past won’t bring
the love she needs to heal.

The burning fear that clouds her eyes
reveals the painful truth,
that reaching out to trust
is something she alone can’t do.

But if instead your loving arms
reached out to her today
you’d be amazed at all the love
she yearns to give away.

If you take the time to hold
her face within your hands
and look into her frantic eyes
I think you’ll understand…

It’s not that she’s a “problem” dog
nor one who’s a lost cause,
it’s that she needs a person who
won’t see her fears as flaws.

You say you want a happy dog
who’ll love you all your days?
Right here my friend is what you want
behind the mask of pain.

You hesitate…I understand
how cautious you must be.
It’s too late now to change your mind,
she’s coming home with me.

But in her place another waits
ignored by passersby,
the shy one with a heart of gold,
a best friend in disguise.
