For years Friendship day has been celebrated across the country as an occasion to cherish the unique and special friendships in one’s life. This time around, Groupon India gives consumers the opportunity to celebrate the most selfless friend they would ever have – Dogs.

Groupon, in collaboration with Friendicoes SECA, launches a one-of-a-kind Friendship Day deal aimed at the welfare and rehabilitation of stray dogs in Delhi. Consumers can donate any amount ranging from Rs.99 to Rs.499, and help provide much needed attention and relief to a rescued or injured street dog in need.

Consumers can choose to lend a helping hand by purchasing any of the below mentioned deals:
· Rs.99 - will help provide a healthy sumptuous & energy filled meal for a rescued dog
· Rs.299 - will help provide first aid and medical treatment including antibiotics & intravenous fluids for a rescued dog
· Rs.499 - will help provide an animal ambulance to rescue an injured dog from the streets

Ankur Warikoo, CEO, Groupon India said, “India has a large population of stray dogs, with an estimated 4 lakh in Delhi alone. Neglected and uncared for, these dogs often do not have access to bare essentials like food, water and basic medical attention. By timing this deal around Friendship Day, we hope to provide a platform for dog-lovers across the country to join a cause that is close to their hearts. We hope to receive a great response for this deal, and are grateful to have a partner like Friendicoes on board.”

Geeta Seshamani, Vice President, Friendicoes SECA said, “We have been associated with the welfare of animals for over 35 years now, and are glad to be partnering with Groupon to help lakhs of sick, rejected, abandoned, injured and orphaned dogs in the city. Through this collaboration, we hope to reach out to a wider audience across the country and tap the online community where the younger audiences reside.”

To make a difference this Friendship Day, join Groupon India and Friendicoes in the Dog rescue movement. Consumers can purchase multiple deals across any of the categories. The entire amount contribution from Groupon will be donated towards the cause. For every contribution made on the site, Friendicoes SECA will notify consumers on the receipt of the payment and update them on the progress of the dog within a week from the date of purchase.
