It takes VOSD an average of ₹ 15,000 in the first few weeks of healing a dog; approx. ₹ 10,000 a month for a dog on critical support; approx. ₹ 2,000 per month for lifetime maintenance thereafter. Now multiply that by 6000 rescues and 600+ permanent dogs. We’re not funded by the govt or run on public funds unlike other NGOs. We request you to participate in the rescue you report by contributing in a small way by paying towards the initial pickup.
This is a two-step process, and it is mandatory that you have filled in the VOSD Dog Surrender Request and received an acceptance from VOSD BEFORE making this contribution.
Please remember, we’re not funded by the government, and neither do we run on other public funds unlike other NGOs. We’re a private non-profit; and though this is the minimum we expect you to pay for participating in the rescue you report, you may voluntarily contribute a higher amount if you so wish.
VOSD has made 4300+ rescues in the last 900+ days all requiring critical care and has 500+ resident dogs at any time. Most of these dogs require constant and critical care, such as cancers and other serious illnesses involving extensive surgery and procurement of expensive, specialized, sometimes imported medicines. By contributing you are contributing towards the operational requirement for a month for which is ₹ 15 Lacs per month at present.
