About W.A.G

 

How we came to be

Atul Sarin and Stephanie Panayiotou, with the support of a small group of dedicated animal lovers, having many years of animal welfare experience, decided to set up WAG with an emphasis on adoptions and sterilisations. They also realised that many cows in Goa are abandoned by their owners and are strays too; they face similar difficulties to stray dogs and cats. With that in mind, a small NGO was set up in 2005, reporting dogs and cats for sterilizations, and rescuing stray, injured cattle. Since then we have grown into a Cattle Sanctuary and a fully functioning Veterinary Rescue Clinic. Our Shelter provides a home for injured cows, goats, pigs, chickens, you name it! Here they receive medical treatment, healthy food and a home to recuperate. WAG's Rescue Clinic houses in patient dogs and cats. Strays who have faced the harshest lives on the street finally have a place to rest and heal.
