there are thousands of pedigree dogs abandoned daily. some lucky dogs find their way of survival but maximum of them either die a pathetic death or struggle for food and shelter for their entire life.
Not all dogs are fortunate enough to get shelter after abandonment.
V.S.P.C.A (Visakha Society for Protection and Care of Animals based at visakhapatnam working to mitigate this conflicting situation since two decades. the problem is never ending day by day there are hundreds of pedigree dogs being abandoned. Hence, to save at least the needy we have undertaken a Three phased Plan of action.
1. Rescuing: Pedigree dogs includes rescuing the abandoned dogs from accidents and other fatalities.
2. Rehabilitation: This includes rehabilitating the abandoned to the shelters, finding potential adopters etc.
3. Refuging: This phase involves taking care of the permanent resident dogs such as old, blind and paraplegic.
the funds raised will be utilized to build a dog shelter were we can refuge and shelter the rescued abandoned dogs. we could procure the land in our kindness shelter (V.S.P.C.A).
half of the area will be dedicated for the puppy pound and Refuge for the Old, Blind ad Paraplegic dogs and the other half will be dedicated for the rescued dogs. A Quarantine and isolation ward will also be constructed.
The Total Construction Cost for Building a Dog Shelter with a capacity of refuging One Hundred and Fifty dogs will be around Twenty Seven Lakhs Fifty Thousand .
V.S.P.C.A's Kindness shelter:
V.S.P.C.A kindness shelter located in the rural side of the viskhapatnam district is a peaceful place for all the animals free from chaos. We have established the kindness farm in order to avoid over crowding situations for animals and also to introduce Animal Welfare Ideologies in the rural part of the district. Currently we have over 600 animals in the Kindness Shelter. we are planning the shelter for abandoned dogs parallel to the already existing dog shelter. the new dog shelter would refuge over one hundred and fifty abandoned dogs were the existing dog shelter is occupied.
the total shelter will be a happy home for several dogs which have been abandoned and a permanent refuge for Old, Blind and paraplegic dogs. The shelter will also be helpful as transit dog shelter for the missing and lost pets this would in turn help in reuniting with their families.
the entire idea is to save the pedigree dogs from dying a pathetic death and from the misery of abandonment.
