In keeping with a number of stray dogs and cats being troubled, poisoned or simply reproducing in large numbers, a number of NGOs and animal activist groups encourage families to adopt stray dogs and cats with two motives – bettering the lives of these strays, and reducing the practice of illegal animal breeding. Not to forget the immense health benefits that animal comfort and support can bring.
Keeping the same thought in mind, this month, the Animal Adoption and Rescue Team (AART), Pune is organizing an adoption camp on December 17 in Pune.
Over 75-plus stray puppies and kittens are expected to be up for adoption. The camp, to be held at Kalmadi Shamrao High School, Kothrud will welcome interested families and pet lovers to stop by and adopt the puppy or kitten of their choice between 11 am and 4 pm.
The last camp witnessed over 70 stray dogs and kittens being adopted.
Bharati Tambe, founder, AART said, “Stray puppies and kittens that come to the camps are rescued from the streets and fostered by our volunteers. When the animals are healthy, volunteers put them up for adoption since the animals can’t fend for themselves on the streets.”
Until now, AART has organized over 11 adoption camps out of 120 adoption camps held in Pune. Between January 2016 and November 2017, over 260 stray puppies and 170 kittens, six adult dogs and three rabbits have been adopted through the organization’s effort.
At the upcoming adoption camp, all prospective pets will first need to register, tag their foster pet with a number and get checked by the vet. The gates will then open for potential adopters to select the pet of their choice. On selection, a the prospective pet parent will be counseled by our team and on meeting all adoption criteria, the adoption forms will be signed wherein an address proof copy, a photograph of the adopter is maintained with the forms for regular follow ups.
