  2.  Animal Care Assocation Pakistan – (ACAP):

    • 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.
      3. Feed all the hungry animals out there as much as possible.
      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.

      • We want to build shelters around the city where we can house rescued animals, and domestic animals that people want to give up for adoption. 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 … 

IT IS AS IF LIFE HAD SAID, ‘I AM GOING TO SEND YOU INTO A WORLD OF CRUELTY. I SHALL MAKE YOU SENSITIVE TO PAIN, FEAR, HEAT, COLD, HUNGER AND STARVATION. IN THIS WORLD OF CRUELTY I SHALL MAKE YOU DEFENSELESS. IN ADDITION I SHALL STRIKE YOU DUMB.’ THIS IS THE KIND OF WORLD THAT ANIMALS ARE BORN INTO.” – GRACE JOHNSON

*******************

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.

Yatta!!! – We Did it!!


So remember that post, where i mentioned a letter that i wrote to the Governor of Utah!!

Remember Why i wrote that??? (For those who have no idea wat im talkin abt: https://shout4animals.wordpress.com/2011/01/27/to-the-governor-of-utah/) ….

Anyways, good news is: That bill didn’t pass!!!! More like : GOT SHOT DOWN!!! 🙂

Here’s a link to how many ppl were excited abt this news:

How did all this happen??

……. dozens of Best Friends staff and volunteers, including Best Friends CEO Gregory Castle (read Gregory’s blog on HB 210) were up at the Utah State Capitol speaking out on behalf of Utah’s animals.   After an unusual and extended two-hour debate in the Utah House Judiciary Committee, a motion by Representative LaVar Christensen sealed the fate of HB 210 and struck language from the bill that would open the door for people to kill animals without a cruelty charge.

This effort combined with an unprecedented deluge of emails and phone calls from you, led to victory for the animals…...” (read the Full story: http://alturl.com/f575t).

In Short, no matter who you are, no matter what state of life you are living in …. today’s world gives you all the opportunities to speak out for the weak ones …. now, it doesn’t matter whether that cruelty  is taking place in your city, in your country or anywhere around the world … YOU CAN STILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!

If you can volunteer physically, there is no measure to that …. but even if u can’t … participate in online surveys, petitions, click everyday to feed homeless pets …. there is no end to helping out!! All u need to do is …give it a little precious time of yours!!! Dat’s  all!!

Here's your chance to Make a Difference!!

There can’t be another Steve Irwin!!!


Although he’s always been an inspiration but just last night i was watching one of his shows on Crocodiles that not only included crocs, but also snakes, birds, iguanas and koala bears.

The crocs knew him, he had one on one sessions with the camels (Oh i didn’t mention the camels?? yea they were also a part of that show) … this guy was playing with them in a way a man plays with his dogs. These large animals took carrots from his mouth, they chased him, kissed him …. i mean …. :”( …. how many ppl u see sharing that much love with their camels? He stopped fights between two birds …. Imagine!!

God!! This guy is LEGENDARY!!! He really is!! & That will always remain a fact!!

I have no fear of losing my life – if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it.
Quotation of Steve Irwin

The first crocodile I ever caught was at nine years of age, and it was a rescue.
Steve Irwin

He did fear them, but that only helped him to not to make mistakes …… he did make mistakes with them and that taught him even more.

Will there ever be another Steve Irwin!!! Well …… we can only pray for that!!!
I know i am!!

We all loved u mate!! Especially all the animal lovers!!!

PS: Just incase you all are wondering wat does CRIKEY means ….. well … he even answered that for u: It means: Gee whiz, wow!

Heroes?? Damn right they are ..


They walk the same streets, that you do.
They work the same hours, that you do.
They have responsibilities, just like you do.

What makes them different? What makes them a hero??

They are animal lovers, they don’t over look an injured animal … they voice up for animal rights … they feed these animals to their best … they provide them shelter even if it is till the time the animal heals from an injury …. they take these homeless pets to the vets … they spend the money that was probably kept for THEIR bad times … they would rather give up on their snack food to feed their furry friends …. above all … they care, they love and they carry:

An unmeasurable amount of awesomenimity!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Oh yea!! im freakishly in love with this word …. “Awesome”)

Are they different?? Yes!! u bet they are!! How do you identify them in public?? Well … you can’t …. they are like superman … and other super heroes who keep their identity to them selves ….

But … here’s the good part ….

I am like a daily reporter of them … i will search for them … will probably someday catch them in action …. will take pics and upload them here … Muahahahahahahah *evil Laugh* … and to my best … will tell u all abt who they are and why they do what they do and how they do it ….

Stay tuned!!!!!!!!!!!
