At VOSD, we have a soft spot for senior dogs (8+ years old). They have an even rougher time out on the streets, where age and failing health make it difficult for them to stay safe. In such cases, VOSD provides senior strays with the love, care, and most of all, dignity, to spend their final years in the peace and comfort of the VOSD Sanctuary.
Please contribute a small percentage of the cost that VOSD will incur in the lifetime care of the senior dog you want to surrender. A lifetime of food, supplements, veterinary support and medication. It takes approx. ₹ 20,000 per year to maintain a healthy dog and can be 5x that much to maintain an infirm dog.
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.
The Voice of Stray Dogs is a private non-profit organisation. We are not funded by the government, and neither do we avail of other public funds unlike other NGOs. You may voluntarily contribute a higher amount over and above this basic minimum, if you so wish.
VOSD has made 6000+ rescues in the last three years, and has 700+ resident dogs at the VOSD Sanctuary. 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.
