“There were times when a human’s life was always more important than that of an animal. Now, people are realizing that lives of animals matter as much as a human’s life. So, things are moving in the right direction.” says Ditej Garg a young social activist working towards the welfare of dogs in the city of Noida.
Started working for the stray dogs in 2009 with a friend inside his college campus Ditej is a person who is feeding and caring for the stray dogs without having any kind of financial support from anyone. Currently he is fathering 6 dogs who lives with him in his rented Noida apartment. Despite facing economical crunches sometimes in his job as his livings totally depend upon his monthly salary he is using his credit card to provide good lifestyle to these animals. Apart from it he also feeds the stray dogs living in the campus of Amity University.
The biggest challenge that he face is the lack of compassion that most of the people have towards the mute souls. He feels that though few people turned out to be generous yet they have no time for these people. He hope to receive help from the passionate volunteers for his cause and in the future more and more people could join him in his cause of saving the stray dogs.

He observed that a lot of cows were injured and paralysed. This affected him deeply and he thought of raising hand towards the cause. Initially started with 50 kg chara for these cows now he is giving almost 2000 kg chara per visit.
He is soon going to start his own cow shelter and is receiving help from lot of people for the land and finances for this cause. He says “People ask me that why I am going to that particular gaushala its because till now nobody is volunteering for this. Being a human, it is easy for us to earn means of living but impossible for other species.
