Ten years ago, Leslie was nearing 70 and was travelling through India to retire in the beauty of the Himalayas

When his journey took him to Tiruvannamalai, he learned the local authorities, to control the dog population, were about to kill the homeless dogs wandering the streets.

With an all-out plea to the authorities, Leslie persuaded them to postpone killing the dogs. But in return, they insisted he offer an alternative to control the dog population.

As a result, Leslie cancelled his Himalayan retirement and with his money, began the Arunachala Animal Sanctuary and Rescue Shelter.

Now 80-years-of-age, Leslie works with a team of 23 to rescue as many dogs as possible.

At the shelter, the dogs are given food and water, room to roam safely, along with an abundance of love and attention.

To keep the dogs healthy, Arunachala provides medical care and as needed neutering, its clinic seeing up to 800 patients a month.

Over the last ten years, thousands of dogs have been rescued.

Today, Arunachala is funded by private donors, and has no more than 3 to 6 months in money to pay for its operation.

But Leslie always raises the money so that these former stray dogs have a loving home.
