Wow! That is a big number of puppies to home.
Any IM members in Gujarat is need of healthy super cute dogs?!
Good luck with finding homes.
The time will come when men will look upon the murder of animals as they look upon the murder of men.

It IS a lot of pups! We're hoping to get some homes as the more that are adopted, the higher the chances of survival for those that have to try to make it on the street. It's a tough world out there for these little ones. Please spread the word folks ... thanks.

If you have not done so yet, try advertising in local newspapers. Mention that the pups will be vaccinated and sterilised for free. We often manage to home pups that way.

Need to contact Birds

Hi Birds,

sorry, that I take this way - instead of saying sth. that belongs to your post. I don"t know how to get in contact with you because right now I am in contact with CUPA. Im a german tourist that searched for an NGO in Bangalore which helps animals, so I contacted them. I think they do good things but I learnt that small kittens and puppies, that haven"t been adopted have to die.

Is that right. Can anyone tell me the truth. Sorry, my english is not so good, and I also could not find out, how to contact birds without using the forum...

Bye

Karin

Hi Karin,

I am sorry for the late reply, I have been quite ill the past days.

I am afraid your information is correct. As with every shelter in India (and almost everywhere else) many puppies, kittens and adult dogs and cats are euthanised if they do not get adopted. It is really sad but unfortunately there are not sufficient people to adopt animals.

Some shelters actively euthanise, other shelters wait until the animal gets sick and euthanise it subsequently. Every animal that stays longer in a shelter will eventually get sick. Some shelters are so contaminated that unvaccinated pups and kitten always get even if they are in there for just a few hours.

The figures are difficult to come by but I know that if a shelter get 10% of the pups & kittens adopted it is doing pretty good. The others will be euthanised.

This is why I keep hammering on sterilisation and disapprove of breeding of pedigrees because every born results in the death of an animal in the shelter.

CUPA belongs to the better shelters. They have a very good adoption record but still many do get euthanised. Especially very young animals will not make it with special care.

This information sometimes stops people's support to the shelter but instead of stopping the support it should encourage
people to do more as most shelters, and especially CUPA, are very active with sterilisations which is the only long term solution.

Hi Lisa,

How are you doing with the pups. Any success yet?

Making individual photos, giving them ribbon collars can help and an exotic name, can sometimes help!

As Birds was asking, any updates on the pups? Btw, what breed are they? I may be interested. Please PM me if you can.

Cheers and bow-wow

Also, I am shot and exhausted from the effort of taking care of both of them and the house.
Curly is 9 months old and a playful and naughty boy who loves attention and messing around with Buddy. He has a very sweet disposition and is very friendly by nature. He is energetic as an Energizer bunny and loves to run! The best thing about him is that he has spirit and never-give-up attitude. He is a pure bred orange roan, largely white with brown markings on face, back and legs. His vaccination record is up-to-date. I would like to give him to some one who would love him unconditionally & who will give him a good home. He is one of the best things that has ever happened to me and I would like to see him find a happy loving home.


evah - I have moved your thread post to this existing thread re animal adoption. It is a more suitable place for it to be.

Re. the Gandhinagar pups, no takers yet, although we've received several calls of interest. The pups are Indian Pariah or Indian Pariah cross -- hard to say exactly. They've all had their first round of shots now.

Very interesting term "Indian Pariah dog". I did a search and found this interesting link:

http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/pariahdog.htm

Reading this link and seeing the photo, reminds me of the many street dogs in India also found often on railway platforms (at least used to). Also learnt that they are predecessors to the Ridgeback and Dingo.

Ah, ha, I learn something new everyday!

Cheers

This is the best site (in my humble opinion) on pariah dogs: http://indianpariahdog.blogspot.com/

We also call them "INDogs". (I call them Hounds of Hind.)

I have 3 of them myself. Awesome creatures!
Please let me know if you'd like to come and see them.

The ones that we manage to get sponsored out of India we call them Indian Temple Dogs. The people and customs love it.

Whatever you call them, having lots as well, I can also vouch for them, they are super clever, incredibly loyal and very, very healthy.

How are we doing with those pups? Surely some must be gone by now?

Dog for Adoption

Hi im a student from the US here in Delhi. One of my neighbors took a puppy from the street and then when it got bigger they just left it on the street and moved away. It broke my heart. From then i took her in and ive been caring for her. Shes a girl about one year old and im looking for a home for her. I wont be able to take her back with me cause i have to move cross country when i go back. I'm looking for a family or person who would adore her the way i do. If anyone is interested please let me know

Very nice of you to take care of this little girl. Is she sterilised and vaccinated? That is a pre-requisite for adoption.

If she is not, you can get this done by Friendicoes at Defence Colony fly-over. They maye also be able to help you finding a adoption house.

Another person who can help is Anajli (anjali.gulati62 AT gmail.com)

But it is paramount that she gets vaccinated and sterilised before you embark on anything.
