Help Patchy Get Home To VOSD

HELP US SEND PATCHY TO THE VOSD SANCTUARY

Patchy is a stray dog who has gone through terrible suffering on the roads. People would hit him with stones and he was probably an abandoned pet dog. Soon he started reacting and biting people. He has bitten about 6 people, mostly people riding motorbikes. There was huge outcry and people wanted to kill him. Tails 'N' Trees NGO Pune team rescued Patchy and have kept him safe in a shelter for now  but he can't live there forever. Patchy cannot be released back on his previous location and unfortunately no one has come forward to adopt him and give him a safe home. He is a friendly dog but he is unpredictable on the street where he chases bikes and bites the riders. We reached out to VOSD Sanctuary for help and they have agreed to take him in for life. Patchy will get a new life at the VOSD sanctuary. He won't live in fear of being hit by random strangers and won't react or bite to save himself.

We need to urgently raise the transportation cost via ambulance approximately INR 25K plus surrender fees for Patchy INR 20K. Since we will have an ambulance travelling all the way, we will also send few other rescued  stray dogs (mostly old stray dogs) with him who cannot survive on the streets and would be safe and secure at VOSD.

Please help us send Patchy to a safe forever home at the VOSD Sanctuary.

Dear Supporters,

Our journey with you all has been a path filled with joy and inspiration. Joy from the exceptional support we have received from you all and inspiration for continuing our work with the higher vigor and to reach better heights to support more and more helpless souls.

Throughout this journey, we have been posting updates about our hospital and sanctuary, the development and progress at each stage have been briefed to you all through our updates. This festive season we would like to share our next project.  A new start for a new year!

As mentioned in the previous update, VOSD has the plan to increase our capacity to 1400+ dogs from the current capacity of 900+ dogs. With the completion of the 10,000+ sq feet Hospital and 50+ high-quality kennels averaging 75-100 sq.feet which we could with your support, we're moving on to the VOSD Sanctuary expansion project. A few details had been mentioned in the previous update, we will share a detailed explanation of our plan and vision in this update.

Our plan is to double the land use and efficiency that will increase our capacity. 50% of the VOSD sanctuary area has non-standard construction with unplanned/poor land use. As a result one half of the sanctuary only houses 250 dogs. Changing the land use in that particular area will easily bring this capacity to 750+ dogs.

Reconstruction will happen over 33,600 sq feet where there are 28 plots, each 30 feet x 40 feet are laid out on either side. Of a 10 feet wide stone path, such that the outer perimeter of these 30x40 feet plots is the outside boundary of the 1.5 acre plot. Each plot has a cement and concrete ‘house’ measuring 10x15 feet with one door and 2 windows so dogs have a 4 side open area and indoor area. The layout factors in the 300 trees planted in this area, which we will not be cutting or pruning.

The expansion project would have 28 plots each with:
- 1 room measuring 150 sq feet of flooring + 150 sq feet or roofing with 10’ high concrete brick walls, plastered and painted with washable distemper & with 2 windows, 1 door (total 4200 sq feet of roofed area)
- Underground drainage for all plots
- Power connection for all rooms with light fittings
- A set of 2 gates for each plot
- 6 feet chain link fence on all sides but with 10 feet high cement wall on the external perimeter (~1000 running feet)
- Streetlights on steel masts at 200 feet along the path with 4 streetlights in each cluster
- Motorable road between the plots (~1000 feet)


Also, one more major part for which we would like to have your support would be for the operational expenses. We are trying to expand and are also trying to improve our infrastructure for serving the dogs. Currently, on a monthly basis, we are spending about close to ₹17.5 Lakhs per month for the food for the animals, salaries of the employees and helpers, maintenance of the infrastructure and assets, medical requirements for the animals, etc. The operational expenses are just going to increase exponentially with the number of animals increasing when we complete our expansion project.

We are indebted to everyone who has contributed towards our cause as donations and well wishes, this journey will continue further and we do expect the same support from everyone. Our intentions are to provide the best of facilities and care for our speechless companions. Please do continue supporting us with the same fervor and energy.

Dear Supporters,

The support we have received from you all have inspired us to do more and have motivated us to work much harder to reach our goal of creating the best sanctuary we can for the animals we have. We are awed by the response we have got from all of you. A big shout out and heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported us by donating, sharing and wishes. Here is the update on how we have utilized the funds you have trusted us with all the details.

We have almost completed our hospital's construction. We have also build a residence for the veterinary doctors who would come down to treat the animals at VOSD.

Here is a video of showing the functional hospital :

The larger and the more aggressive dogs abandoned that find home at VOSD are now getting sparkling new kennels (which are more spacious) and a pool for swimming and hydrotherapy.

The VOSD Sanctuary Hospital upgrade project is almost complete - take a look at this new place where our largest dogs that need their privacy and independence will run and play! You can also see the pool coming up for them there.

We have also got two new vehicles for transportation of the animals, a Tata Safari Storme and a Tata Winger. Here is the picture of one of them:

https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=481285462467403




This new bus has everything removed - so it's one large flat bed for the babies. It can comfortably drive 8-10 dogs. Large enough for it to be a temporary room for 3-4 dogs to stay a night in case of emergency. It's got an AC for when the bus is running and fans for the night. Cameras fitted to watch the back.




VOSD just broke ground on the capacity to increase to 1400+ dogs. With the completion of the 10,000+ sq feet Hospital and 50+ high quality kennels averaging 75-100sq feet we're moving on the VOSD Sanctuary expansion project.

Essentially 10 large enclosures with non standard sizes and roofing are being demolished. They have poor utilisation and design and availability of sunlight etc. They are making way for 30 enclosures each of 30*40 feet (that is the size of a house) for a total of 36,000 sq feet (that's the size of a small housing colony). Of this 20,000+ sq feet is land not constructed on currently.

Each of these plots in it's center will have a standard large cemented floored and roofed room with space on all 4 sides for dogs to run. Each such enclosure will house 12-15 dogs giving us a capacity of 400-450 dogs in the new section alone.

Here is the final bill with GST for the hospital construction, veterinary residence and the new additional facility :

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for the tremendous support you have given us, your fast response helped us achieve our goal in short time span. You guys are awesome!

We are posting a quick update here since we are getting a lot of requests asking for an update. Currently, we are working on multiple construction activities in our sanctuary.

Our facility had temporary electric poles which was running through out the facility to provide lights. The wires used to be hanging freely from pole to pole. Due to the rains, the lines are falling and creating a havoc and is becoming a concern for the safety of the animals as well. We are constructing underground electric lines and creating permanent poles for the same. Here are a few photos for the same:



These were the temporary set up and below is the work undergoing for underground power lines:



We have almost finished construction work of the kennels, guest room and the hospital. The guest house is for the volunteers/veterinary doctors who is visiting and staying in the sanctuary. Here is a video showing the work ad buildings:



Here's also a quick look at the work happening at what used to be the enclosure for labs, which had 4500 sq ft was our largest. This is now being converted to a place for the most maladjustment dogs where they can roam free and with their own pool to swim in.



We will be posting a detailed update with the expenditures and other details very soon.
