      Dear All,

      I am happy to inform you that due to our consistent efforts to vaccinate
      and treat donkeys in camps over the last few years, this year there have
      been no cases of donkeys suffering from dehydration and stiffness in the
      monsoons. We’ve been taking them in our ambualnce and also treating them
      in several camps.This has certainly benefitted them a lot. We at PAWS
      intend to do more camps in local areas.

      The appeal in our E-mail newsletter fetched us Some donation that saw
      us through a month. We have neither our own office,
      website, nor hospital. We don’t have foreign funding, nor do any foreign
      magazines publish our work. We can’t pay huge salaries nor do we have
      corpus fund.Yet, PAWS Mumbai and Thane received the award from Karmayog
      Site for our‘Outsanding Service to the Society’.

      We are a small group of animal lovers driven by the love & care for our four
      legged, feathered and scaled friends. Our main strength lies in our
      dedicated young volunteers and committed supporters across India and we
      are thankful for this amazing group of animal loving people who always
      stand by us.

      Yours for Animals,
      Nilesh Bhanage

      8. First Hand Tips for stray animals:

      Skin ailments , rashes and hair fall etc. in stray animals can be easily
      treated by simple home remedies – Take some Neem leaves, a pinch of
      saffron & a little coconut oil and crush together in a mixer.. Apply on
      affected skin area twice a day. After 5 days of treatment the animal will
      show remarkable improvement.



      Corn-Quinoa Medley

      The increase in heat brings fresher options for meals. Although many
      people prefer to eat grains during the colder months, quinoa is a light
      grain that combines well with cold dishes or vegetables plates, making it
      an ideal source of summertime nutrition. In addition to great taste, corn
      provides vitamins b& c and many minerals for nutritional balance. You can
      prepare this easy main dish with rich quinoa and versatile corn for a
      tasty, nutrient-rich meal.


      6 cups water
      3 cups quinoa, well rinsed
      1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
      1 cup red pepper, destemmed, deseeded, and diced
      1 cup orange pepper, destemmed, deseeded, and diced
      1/4 cup olive oil, divided
      2 cups cut corn
      2 Tbs. garlic, minced
      1 cup green onions, sliced
      1/2 cup black olives, sliced
      1/4 cup freshly parsley, chopped
      1/4 cup lemon juice
      2 tsp. salt
      1/2 tsp. pepper

      In a saucepan, place the water and bring to a boil. Add the quinoa, cover,
      reduce the heat to very low, and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until tender;
      drain off excess water, transfer to a bowl, and fluff with a fork.
      In a lightly greased pan, cook pumpkin seeds over medium heat for 3-4
      minutes. Transfer toasted pumpkin seeds to a bowl and set aside. In the
      same skillet, saute red and orange pepper in 1 Tsp. olive oil, for 3
      minutes; add corn and garlic, and saute an additional 3 minutes; add green
      onions and saute for 1 minute; add sauted vegetables, reserved pumpkin
      seeds, and remaining ingredients to quinoa.

      Toss well to combine and Serve warm. Makes 10 cups.
