PETSY LAUNCHES A VIRTUAL ADOPTION CENTRE
Creature Companions|June 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a rise in the number of pets across the globe. Whilst this brings a warm fuzzy feeling thinking of all those families with their pets, there is an equally worrying trend in the opposite direction - an increase in the number of pets being put up for adoption for a variety of reasons.

Over the last few months, we experienced this trend first hand where we received an increase in requests on social media from rescuers, shelters, NGOs and other individuals to share adoption appeals. On the other hand, we also received a large number of requests from people looking to buy/adopt a pet. As these numbers started increasing drastically, we saw the need to do something in this space to help connect potential adopters with animals that were up for adoption. For us, it was about bringing together these different stakeholders under a single roof. Needless to say, at the core of Petsy, we have always believed that we are more than just dedicated pet parenting partners. This initiative strongly resonates with our values of making a difference and giving back to our community.

THE PET CARE ECOSYSTEM IS ON THE VERGE OF EXPONENTIAL GROWTH AND DISRUPTION

Supertails is your one-stop solution when it comes to pet wellness and health care needs. You can shop for pet food, accessories, grooming essentials and even book online vet consultation for your pets. The trio, Vineet Khanna, Varun Sadana and Aman Tekriwal, who founded Supertails have worked together in start-ups like Snapdeal and Licious. Vineet and Varun come from IIM Lucknow and Aman is a Chartered Accountant. It did not take long for them to decide that they were not cut-out for big established companies. Vineet with a stint of 5 and half years and Varun with 3 and a half years with Tata and Uniliver respectively started working with start-ups. Their working together in Licious (fresh meat brand) is what triggered a dream of starting off something of their own.

"कोरोनाकाल में रोजाना करीब 10 हजार लोगों तक खाना और राशन पहुंचाया” आंचल शर्मा - संस्थापक, मील्स औफ हैप्पीनेस

एक हफ्ता पहले ही मुझे कैंसर डायग्नोज हुआ था और मैं अपने दोस्तों से मिल कर वापस जा रही थी. तभी सड़क पर मेरी गाड़ी रुकी तो कुछ बच्चे आ गए. वे भूखे थे और खाना मांग रहे थे. मैं उन्हें ले कर पास के फूड स्टाल गई और उन्हें भरपेट चाऊमीन खिलाए. वे बहुत खुश हुए. उन्हें खुश देख कर मुझे अलग ही खुशी मिली. उस समय मैं यह तक भूल गई कि मुझे कैंसर डायग्नोज हुआ है और उस दिन मुझे मेरे जीने की नई वजह मिली. मैं ने सोचा कि मुझे नहीं पता मेरे पास कितना समय बचा है. ज्यादा कुछ तो मैं नहीं कर सकती, लेकिन इतना तो कर ही सकती हूं कि कुछ गरीबों को पेट भर खाना खिला सकूँ. उसी दिन 'मील्स औफ हैप्पीनेस चैरिटेबल ट्रस्ट' की शुरुआत हुई," यह कहना है दिल्ली के छतरपुर में रहने वाली 36 साल की आंचल शर्मा का, जिन्होंने अपनी तकलीफ भुला कर लोगों को खाना बांटा. कोरोनाकाल में भी इन का काम बदस्तूर चलता रहा.
