Do you really care?

Couple of days back I got a call from a lady who I had met at Sanjay Gandhi Animal Health Care Centre. She is a social worker and is a great dog lover. She has been taking care of stray dogs around her locality, someone who has scarificed a lot for these dogs irrespective of the fact that she doesn't have enough money or steady income flowing into her account.
I got goose bumps the moment when she took me to her house which had just 2 rooms, which had her husband, 2 sons and 7 stray dogs. They have 1 mongrel which is about 5 years and they picked up the other 6 from the street (they are about 6-9 months). Since all of them don't fit in the same place so few of them sleep in the Lane .
I was really taken aback when she told me that the people around her locality tried throwing stones at the dogs and there were times when the stone had hit her. Irrespective of that she hasn't given up.
What concerns her now is that nothing should happen to the dogs. People around her locality are showing zero tolerance towards these dogs because they think that its a nuisance. She really wants me to help her move these dogs to a safer place/home. I got surprised when I got to know that these NGO's asked for 30 thousand each for these dogs. So, I appeal to who so ever reading this please let me know of a place where I can shift them to ensure their safety. This is the least that we all can do to help these dogs.
