Dogs of Delhi is a sterilization initiative run by two like-minded individuals aiming to stabilize dog populations on the streets of Delhi. DoD provides an affordable and safe way to sterilize and vaccinate the community dogs of Delhi NCR.
The last survey by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation in 2016 puts dog population in areas of South Delhi at 1,89,285 out of which only 64,837 were found sterilised. A proper census of dogs all over Delhi hasn’t been conducted but there’s absolutely no doubt that the numbers have sky-rocketed. Mortality rates for street dogs in our country are so high that less than a fifth of the dogs survive till their reproductive age (5-6 months); puppies are usually killed due to oncoming traffic, poisoning or just lack of shelter. The ones that do make it are left fending for themselves, in a constant battle to survive. We want to put an end to this seemingly endless cycle of suffering and give these beautiful creatures a chance at a better life.
Every sterilization costs Rs 1000 and potentially helps save the lives of thousands! We have sterilized nearly 2000 dogs in the past year and the number is steadily growing. However, a lot of people who contact us for help are unable to pay and we try our best to fill in for them but are running out of the means to do so. We need your help if we want to continue functioning. We are currently aiming to raise funds to sponsor the sterilization of 150 street dogs! Every tiny bit that you donate would help us achieve this mission and put an end to all this suffering! It’s time we stood up for all our Indies out there on the street braving one day after another, help us help them.
