Right now, homeless dogs all across India are fighting for their lives. With only scraps to eat, many starve to death. Others suffer broken bones and infected wounds, are killed by vehicles or are abused by cruel people. Countless more animals wait behind bars in animal shelters because there aren't enough good homes for them.
Meanwhile, dog breeders produce litter after litter of puppies – every time someone buys a dog from a breeder or pet shop, a homeless pup loses his or her chance at finding a good home. We can stop the cycle of animal homelessness and save lives by opening our hearts and homes to a loyal, loving, 100 per cent Indian dog instead of buying animals from breeders or pet shops. It's also crucial to have our canine companions spayed or neutered in order to ensure that they don't bring more puppies into a world that is already short of good homes.
Indian dogs make wonderful, loyal companions. They are highly adaptable, quick learners and protective of their guardians. Indian dogs also tend to be free of many of the health and behavioural problems that plague their purebred cousins who are bred for certain unnatural physical traits such as squashed-in noses or long ears. Best of all, when you make an Indian dog a part of your family, you not only save a life but also make a best friend for life.
Please help end the dog homelessness crisis by signing our pledge below to always adopt and never buy dogs and to always spay or neuter animal companions.
