On behalf of Global Hindu Heritage Foundation, Sri Pinnamaneni Srinivas and his innumerable friends decided to do their part which they usually, every year in and around Visakhapatnam. This year we decided to provide water to the animals.  To provide water GHHF decided to make water tubs with concrete so that they will last longer. Then our volunteers will fill these tubas every day to make sure that the animals such as cows, dogs and birds can drink water This is installed in many places in and around Visakhapatnam area. Our efforts received  applaud from locals, pilgrims,  and even the auto stand union who voluntarily agreed to secure, watch and refill as needed. Few newspapers covered the event. 
Water is placed in secure and high visible areas so that these would stand as examples to be followed by at least those with kind hearts. Locals appreciated very much and few has come forward to regularly clean, secure and refill( a great sign of humanity).

Sri Pinnamaneni Srinivas is Board Member of Global Hindu Heritage Foundation who has been spending hours and hours every day to coordinate, supervise and guide our Ghar Waapasi program, Bala Samskar Kendras, and help renovate and build Grama Devata Temples in Villages.  
Sri Srinivas and our Volunteers such as Srinivas Raju, Rajesh and Sri Varma  and His friends have been doing yeoman service to protect and shelter the birds and animals, cows, monkeys, and street dogs. His passion to protect them is unmatched. He is also environmentalist. He organized many activities to plant many seedlings around the dry areas and mountains to ensure the greenery and reduce the pollution. 

As many of you may be aware that last year during scorching summer day, we got a call from  an unknown about a dog abandoned on the side of busy six lane road tied to a tree. My friend Varma garu responded immediately rushed to spot with some water and biscuits.   
    It is a beautiful white Pomeranian, in a complete state of perplex, sudden disappearance of those who took care of him , waiting with a hope for them to come back, with vehicles passing with gushing speed, and too hot weather, it is in complete distress. We waited for that day to see if anyone would come back, but unfortunately not.
Finally our friend already having couple of dogs , brought him home, gave some comfort she accepted the love and started enjoying the company. Today we posted in groups if anyone can come forward and give some place and love. 

Sri Pinnamaneni’s heart wrenching Experience     
“Humbly and honestly, we are hoping to build more of this kind of nests and shelters soon and give a chance to these innocent lives. I am providing free water bowls every year to those interested in setting up on their roof tops. If you are ready to help to the needy i always fervently strive to be there.
One winter day during dusk while on a walk, I saw a taxi parked on a roadside and driver is jumping into the car to get started possibly on a business. Then noticed a piece of cloth moving between the wheels, on a second look I realized it is puppy, instantly I rushed to the vehicle and shouted ( as glass panes closed) at the driver to hold on. Finally pulled the black slovenly, feeble puppy out, think he was blatantly brought and left to his fate. 
    I brought him home gave some food and comfort who then decided firmly to stay at my place giving another fiduciary responsibility. Now he is showing hell to all other dogs not letting them sleep, always asking to play. Eating food double that of bigger ones. Irrespectively I am happy for him as there is no leash, no rules, safety guaranteed, food right on time, friends to play with. Browny who is back after surgery has graciously taken the motherly responsibility of blacky.  Only thing is I must be visible and say hello often which I do gladly.
*Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen*
In 2020 During Pandemic more than TWO months GHHF provided food and water to Birds, Moneys, Cows, and Dogs.
Sririnivas, the Board member of Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) and who coordinates our activities in Karnataka and other States in India received requests from different sources about the pitiable condition of these animals.
