Why Corporate-Non Profit Collaboration?
Humanity is going through a major shift in its approach to other animals. While the cruelty against animals is rising at an alarming speed, perhaps due to the materiality and the insensitivity of the modern condition, the concern for animals is also, thankfully increasing. Now is the time to participate in this wave of compassion, to create a cultural movement, to make a little difference to the lives of animals every day. This movement, however, has to be a project of collaboration, cooperation and collective effort. It can only be successful if animal welfare organizations find the strong support from compassionate corporate companions and create an impact that magnifies with this support.
Why help Sarvoham?
Sarvoham is an act of courage by a young man who wanted to change the world for animals. He has stood his ground for more than four years despite all adversities and oppositions. Sarvoham has come a long way from where it started but there are still many necessities that demand urgent attention. We are incredibly short of staff, space and medical infrastructure to help as many animals as are reported to us every day. Saying no to even a single animal is soul-shattering and yet inevitable due to the lack of resources. Sarvoham entirely depends on donations by kind benefactors for funds to go from one day to the next in its mission to help animals. By supporting Haris in his mission to help ill, injured, abandoned and disabled animals, corporates can lend a helping hand where it is required the most. We can work together to give these disadvantaged animals a second chance at happiness!

How You Can Help
Reaching out to Children
Kindness must begin at the roots. So, it is better to orient our coming generations in a compassionate attitude towards animals right in their formative years. The CSR collaboration can enable us to hold workshops in playways and schools to engage with children in a positive and friendly manner. With the help of creative audio-visual media we can encourage an effective reinforcement of compassionate attitudes towards animals.
On-the-spot Treatment Ambulance
An On-the-spot Treatment Ambulance can help Sarvoham treat many more animals on the streets. For minor ailments, our team can visit the location and administer the treatment without giving the animal the unnecessary stress of transportation. Not only will this save the animal from being exposed to diseases that haunt animal care shelters, it will also help Sarvoham save shelter space for the more critically ill or injured animals. Moreover, witnessing animals receive treatment and care in their locality will encourage compassion among the local people and make them acknowledge the importance of the lives of our nonhuman companions.
You may also help us procure the following equipment which we need urgently for our patients at Sarvoham:
Veterinary Urine Analyser
Laser Therapy Machine
Veterinary Gaseous Anesthesia
Donation of Equipment or Assets
The financial requirements for day-to-day operations of animal welfare organizations are so vast and unpredictable that often it leaves scanty funds for acquiring important equipment and structural assets. If companies support us by donating such equipment and assets, together we can create means to save many, many more innocent lives. There are many endeavors that benefit both animals and the society but require financial commitments beyond the scope of young and growing animal welfare organizations like Sarvoham.
Companies may declare a certain day of the month as volunteering day and announce Sarvoham as the partner organization. The company may levy a small volunteering fee of 200 to 500 rupees and donate that amount to us as the volunteering contribution. When the employees of the company come to Sarvoham, witness the suffering and recovery of these lovely animals, this will enhance their compassion towards nonhuman beings, and will also help us create awareness about issues related to animal welfare.
Sponsor/ Adopt Animals
Sarvoham is home to close to 200 abandoned, lost, disabled animals. We receive calls to rescue so many more each day. An animal welfare organization alone can never provide for so many animals. But we can also never say no to take in another one in need. If companies sponsor or passively adopt our animals, we can focus all our other resources on treating animals who need medical attention and can be released to their original location after recovering. The sponsorship amount donated by the company will be utilized for the food and medical care of these animals.

We allow all registered companies to collaborate with Sarvoham. There are some basic rules that have to be followed for the security and safety of our rescued animals which we would be happy to share with you once you decide to make us your CSR partner, but apart from that there is no other criterion that we use to filter out organizations for their CSR activity.
Can a company sponsor or adopt an animal from you?

If you have other companies helping you, why do you need more companies to collaborate with you for their CSR?
Animal Welfare is an area of philanthropy which remains neglected despite the growing philanthropic support for other projects all over the world. To make matters worse, everyday the instances of cruelty and indifference towards animals seem to be growing and this is evident in the increased number of animals that need rescue everyday. We receive close to 20 calls each day to help animals that have been deliberately hurt or have become a victim of our fast-paced urban lifestyle. The day-to-day and structural expense of running an organization to help animals becomes a lonely as well as mammoth task. No matter how much help one company provides us, it cannot suffice for the incredible animal suffering we try to address and the large number of dogs we cater to.
The more help we receive from different companies, the more we can expand our reach with regards to the number and species of animals we rescue, the number of animals we provide sanctuary to, the number of community outreach programs we conduct and so on. There is always more scope of improvement and helping more animals and with your help, we can achieve it.
How do we know the funds are being used properly?
Sarvoham is a registered organization and you will get a receipt of the amount you donate to us. We go through an annual audit each year and the records may be shared with companies that are interested to go through them. Every penny you trust us with will be sincerely utilized for the welfare of our animals and you can visit us anytime to make ensure this.
Can we do a random visit?
Of course, our shelter is open for visit from 11 am to 4 pm every day to you as well as all other people who wish to visit Sarvoham.
Is there a fee to conduct an activity?
No, there is absolutely no fee or entry charge for conducting a CSR activity at Sarvoham.
Can we bring family members for our company CSR activity?
Absolutely! We welcome you and your family if your company allows you to bring them to you CSR activity. We have had small children accompany employees of various companies for their CSR activity. We appreciate this and consider this a great way to inculcate the values of kindness and compassion among children.
