Deadly heat waves continue in India with temperatures soaring above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Global warming and the continued build-up of heat-trapping greenhouse gasses, unfortunately, the intense heat waves are to be expected in India and elsewhere, creating a threat to public health. Studies have suggested that India will be a particular hotspot because of the combination of extreme heat and humidity. While many humanitarian organizations have noticed the devastation among people, many have forgotten how the severe heat is affecting animals, some of the most vulnerable in a society since they can’t speak for themselves.

Thankfully, an online crowding funding platform, Impact Guru has started a campaign to help the distraught homeless dogs who are suffering from the unbearable heat in Mumbai, India. The campaign simply named #PledgeABowl does one simple thing, serve bowls of water to homeless dogs. These bowls of water could mean the difference between life and death from extreme dehydration for these animals!

Piyush Jain, CEO and Founder of Impact Guru, kickstarted the #PledgeABowl project by encouraging citizens to put bowls of water outside of their homes, offices, gardens, etc. so that dogs and other animals, such as birds, will have water to drink and a better chance of beating the extreme heat.


Impact Guru has already put 300 bowls across Mumbai with a goal to have nearly 1,000 by the end of this month. 


If you’re unable to leave water out or don’t live in India, you can still help by donating towards the efforts of non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) campaigns who are working on a large scale to provide water to save animals from dehydration.



As of now, Impact Guru has NGOs from Mumbai, Pune, Aurangabad in Maharashtra and some in Odisha on board, but that’s not enough. Think you could help? Click here to find out ways you can contribute, that don’t involve much time or money but make a huge impact on the lives of thirsty homeless animals in India.

And please share this post with a friend! As we’ve seen, social media has the power to help countless animals and the more people who see this campaign, more animals will be helped during India’s extreme heatwave!

Such a simple idea but essential for maintaining life particularly in hot, dry countries. Awesome and inspiring. I live in Australia and leave water dishes out in my garden for the wildlife all year round.
