Indrani touts PPR as not the traditional type of rescue organization because it’s a virtual network of volunteers. Volunteer foster families open their homes to the puppies and in addition to shuttling the pups to vet visits and to adoption showcases, these tireless volunteers provide their charges with around the clock supervision, care, and love. Indrani stresses PPR’s lengthy interview process of potential adopters and remarks, “we wait for the right home and family. We don’t make any rash decisions.”
While puppy rescue certainly has its rewards (after all, who can resist those cute faces?), Indrani doesn’t downplay the challenges involved with such work. With so many abandoned dogs and puppies to rescue, her motto is, we can’t save them all. She candidly states, “we have to focus on who we do save and not on who we don’t.”
Indrani’s positive can-do attitude and enthusiasm for puppy rescue is contagious. She suggests that volunteering, whether at PPR or any other organization, doesn’t need to be an all-consuming experience. For somebody like myself who wants to get involved but may not have hours on end, Indrani notes that there are tons of incremental tasks organizations such as PPR need completed from evening phone outreach to stuffing envelopes to car transport. I realize that Indrani is so inspiring not only because of her accomplishments as a PPR volunteer, but because she has found her true passion and has done everything in her power to champion her cause.
