VOSD is the world’s largest no-kill rescue and sanctuary, and the largest provider of legal and medical expertise on dogs. And we would like to provide a legal framework for stray dogs so that everyone understand the rights of Stray Dogs and what they can and cannot do when it comesRead More

VOSD Dog Sanctuary Clinic requires URGENT revamp

URGENT REVAMP REQUIRED AT VOSD SANCTUARY CLINIC  I  http://ket.to/VOSDSanctuaryClinic VOSD Sanctuary clinic was built 6 yrs ago when we had 20 dogs.

This compromises health care we can provide greatly. With 800 rescued dogs ALL with medical conditions, we urgently need to upgrade. WHAT WILL THE INVESTMENT ₹ 26.35 lacs CREATE (1) 3 OPDs and 1 top-of-the-line operation theater (2) 30 new kennels,Read More

FUND INDIA’S RESCUE OF DOG RESCUERS

Life in India is changing fast, but not fast enough for our street dogs. Haven’t you felt sad looking at the dogs in street? The terror. The hunger. The emptiness. Haven’t you wondered how could make it better. The best hope is for one to be rescued. But a rescued dog waits for either of 2 things – to get adopted or die waiting. Each ‘shelter’ or rescue has a limited geographical footprint. Could it be any different? Well, VOSD makes a difference by supporting rescuers and rescue efforts acrossRead More
