RE-HOME- Our Adoption Program
The program was formulated with the philosophy that one dog homed is one of the streets.
We in India have been so busy looking at imported breeds, that in the bargain we have completely sidelined breeds that have been an inherent part of our country. So many dogs find their lineage running into our history, yet very few know what they are called.
Many now live by the name "stray" when actually they are descendants from an illustrious line of hounds that helped kings hunt, soldiers fight, farmers protect and tribes herd.
The Great India Dog: Few others are as sturdy, as intelligent and as loyal. We have been blinded by our love for all things novel and have forgotten about these dogs. Now all they are known as are "mongrels", "pariahs", "street dogs".
In our bid to resurrect the popularity of the Great Indian Dog, ResQ Charitable Trust and The Paws Pack is proactively encouraging the adoption of young puppies that are born around your corner store, that see the hardships of life from day one, that know the value of every meal, and will cherish the warmth of every smile they receive. They too need a chance on life, and we feel that its not what’s on the outside, but on the inside that truly matters.
Our REHOME program:
Interviews: Everyone who wishes to adopt a puppy through us must go through a rigorous interview to ensure that they are ready to adopt.
Selection: Once we are convinced of the prospective adopter, they get to choose a puppy. We also assist them through this, so that they make the right choice for their lifestyle as well as for the well being of the pup.
Legalities: The adoption process is completed by the family signing a legal undertaking, to look after the well being of the dog, to vaccinate it on a regular basis, to have it registered with the local ward office, and at the right age to have it neutered/spayed.
Surprise Check: ResQ Charitable Trust reserves the right to visit the family for surprise checks and if it is found that the animal is not well taken care of, the animal can be confiscated with no further warning.
ADOPT A STRAY... THEY ARE A BREED APART!
