The Allahabad High Court has passed an order that is opposite to the ambiguous views of the Karnataka High Court, the Bombay High Court, the Shimla High Court and upholds the Animal Birth Control (Dogs) Rules unambiguously. On the 15th of May, 2013, the Chief Justice’s bench of the Allahabad High Court has passed the FIRST UNEQUIVOCAL ORDER by any High Court, expressly disregarding municipal law provisions that allow the destruction of stray dogs ; and upholding the mandate of the Animal Birth Control (Dogs) Rules, i.e., dog population, dog nuisance, and the threatRead More

Read on and participate to help the 30 dogs, 1 bull and 1 emu lovingly brought to health and kept for life by this aging couple in Gurgaon. See about The Voice of Stray Dogs (VoSD) here Why does VoSD help other organizations?  The formative idea of VoSD is to help dogs. The question is the scale of impact. Which is along these lines: How do we impact the lives of 1,000,000X dogs in India? Information, data and analysis. More, and correct, relevant information is critical in influencing policy, court decisions andRead More
It is said that India has 2 affects on people: those who love it as they experience it, and those who can’t wait to get away. And it is also said of people on a journey that they can choose to bring themselves to a point on a map on a jet plane and jet out and refer to what they saw from the taxi glass window as experience. Or they walk it and experience life in the new place for themselves. Meet William Pitt-Thacker & Tom Cornish. They planRead More
Our usually trusting, usually friendly street dogs are often at the receiving end of horrible abuse and anger, because of the wide-spread (and absurd) belief that they’re easily rabid, and routinely spread rabies. The information being disseminated by organizations believed to be responsible seems to contribute to this erroneous belief. There is a figure doing the rounds – that around 20,000 people die of rabies annually, in India; and this is what is thrown at people who argue for compassion, and compassionate, scientific, lawful handling of street dogs. But is this figure of 20,000 human deaths onRead More
‘Greater Kashmir’ has been very vociferous and lop sided in its reporting on the issue of Stray Dogs with every single ‘report’ ending with the same line allegedly quoted from a judge on the PIL ‘Will sterilized dogs stop biting’. Behind its thinly veiled reporting is the propaganda calling for the continuation of the Kashmiri ‘tradition’ of poisoning dogs to manage numbers. The publication is now running an open forum where people can suggest what they’d like to do with stray dogs, and you can guess the responses. What ‘Greater Kashmir’ has consistently lacked and actively resisted isRead More

The importance of being er… FIAPO

If one had a choice between action and words, especially the ones that get printed, we know where this one lies. The animals, well they stay where they are for the most part. Out. A while ago we wrote about the newsworthy but wholly worthless announcement from FIAPO about dog fighting in the Punjab with a token prize of Rs 10,000/ US$170 for information where a fighting dog easily costs 10 times that! Not only did it wholly undermine the (continuing) effort of those on the field and still carryingRead More
What I vocalize here is not a new thought, this is with which we started and I have shared this in person with colleagues and VoSD Board members from time to time. But maybe for the 1st time being put out as 1 picture for everyone else. An year back VoSD was started on these premises: The nature of information. VoSD is an attempt to document what is happening and what has happened to our dogs, my dogs, in Bangalore and everywhere else. Many many very learned people have said ‘why do you want toRead More
