In 2002 Johanna Müller visited Sera for the first time. She noticed many neglected and sick dogs in and around the monastery area. Healing and curing these animals prompted her to initiate this project. She looked after it until she passed away in 2005.

She had introduced an animal caring monk, offering food and fresh water at regular intervals and treating them with medicine, mainly against skin diseases. Insured animals were separated and treated in specially reserved areas. In emergency cases, the insured animals were taken to a nearby veterinarian for vaccinations etc.

Fresh water is the main remedy, because during the draught periods, the dogs have no other alternatives then drinking brackish water to quench their thirst, or they break their legs when jumping into the waste channels.

One monk received assistance and money for animals.
