Zabi’s journey of animal rescuing started early on, at the age of 13, when he picked up a sick puppy who eventually passed away. Even then, he couldn’t understand why the puppy deserved a death like that and why couldn’t its previous owners have cured the disease instead of just abandoning it. Eventually, as a student of KG Reddy College of Engineering and Technology, Zabi famously convinced his college authorities to start an animal shelter in the college premises apart from starting an NGO called A Place to Bark to rescue and rehabilitate animals who were hurt, lost and abandoned. And now, he has initiated an animal rescue sanctuary in Hyderabad’s Toli Chowki, on a one-acre land due to be inaugurated among esteemed guests and celebrities. This sanctuary will strictly have no cage policy, unless an animal has a medical condition which warrants him to be in one, will have open enclosures for at least 30 dogs with huge partitions. They also plan to have a cat tree, a 500 square feet play area and eventually, a swimming pool as well. Zabi and other volunteers will rescue animals and rehabilitate them in this sanctuary.
