PAWS Adoption

How it works

The service charge of ₹1,000 mentioned is minimum amount and will vary as per the condition of the dog.

What will PAWS do to earn this Service Charge?

1) PAWS will make the animal medically fit and emotionally stable.
2) Make hundreds of phone calls for coordination.
3) Make visits to adopter’s houses to do house checks.
3) Deliver the Dog to the adopter’s house upon receipt of the payment mentioned.
4) What remains will go to feed our shelter dogs who are leading crippled lives.

That charge is just to maintain your interest in the Dog because you’ve spent on it. There’s no free lunch in the world. Anything that comes free is treated as dirt. And hence the fee.

Lastly, the adopter has to sign an Adoption Declaration Form to make sure he/ she does not abuse the Dog.

Important Notes:
1) No Adoption Charge for Desi dogs.
2) The person who adopts a Desi Dog along with a foreign breed dog gets an extra bonus. He/ She gets one year’s vaccinations free for both the dogs & NO ADOPTION Charge for either Dog.

PAWS Adoption Instances

#CaseNo595, 24/08/19, Belgharia Railway Station train accident case, male puppy of 8 months, brought to PAWS shelter after unsatisfactory treatment at various shelters.

Case of Megha Chakrabarty of Belgharia.

Start from scratch treatment started at PAWS shelter upon receipt. A repeat surgery may be required because the earlier stitches were not right and the septic condition found in the wound. The injured toe is also festering and we must try to retain that so as to make him mobile on 3 legs.

Estimated expense: ₹3,600 for 2 months of sheltering and medicines plus ₹1,500 possibly for repeat surgery.

Donation received: ₹1,000 ONLY from Megha Chakrabarty.

Public requested to help for such cases where the mentor is not able to pay fully.

The much awaited declaration comes now!

PAWS sterilization service at own shelter with adequately equipped OT and specialist surgeon Dr. Shashank Tripathi is now operational for the 2nd week. This week 12 dogs from different areas were operated and last week, 10 dogs.

50% cases were either unpaid or partially paid and donation funds of PAWS was used to cover such cases of less capable people and for dogs who have no mentors at all.

The beauty of Dr. Tripathi's work is visible from zero problems faced in after care and quick healing of stitches within 3 days. However PAWS plays safe by retaining the dogs for 5 days at least.

Kind donors are requested to donate so that PAWS should be able to bear the load of unpaid cases. This will enable PAWS to move areas wise all over Barasat and adjoining towns to pickup dogs that have no mentors. This is an effort at reducing cruelties inflicted on such dogs and for spreading compassion in such areas.

#CaseNo574, 29/05/19, Sheoraphuli, case of heavily maggot eaten male dog named 'Kalu', head eaten by Maggots. One eye damaged from before, another eye barely functional. His horrific initial condition can be seen at m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2126577734306217&id=1490798644550799

Update, 24 August 2019:

Case of Mr. Binod Mullick who cares for more than 30 dogs at the location.

Kalu still sings, "Morning has broken, like the first morning" every morning at 6am. Sings for 5 min and goes back to sleep as other dogs don't get up. He's full of life and we're doing what best we can.

His wound is filling up little by little. The final step will be a stitching up surgery. The pic shows him eating with ease. It's a pleasure really to watch him eat.

Cost estimate: ₹10,000/- including a total of 5 months of shelter stay, upkeep and reconstructive surgery as envisaged from the present progress.

Donation received:
1) ₹2,000 from Binod Mullick who assured more contribution. In fact he's also supplied ₹3,000 worth tissue reconstruction medicines as prescribed by Dr. Srijita Ghosh of Moitri Bhavana Clinic.
2) ₹500 from Sayanti Banerjee of Barasat.

Requesting public to donate and help PAWS to treat dogs where there aren't sufficient number of mentors to pay in full.

#CaseNo591, 12/07/19, New Barrackpore, Milanmandir Community Hall, Indian Tuxedo Hound, male of 2 yrs of age named 'Bittu', affected by malignant tumours all over his body, some of which were already burst and full of maggots.

Update, 10/08/19: Bittu released in fully cured condition after 2 doses of chemo treatment. Just like any other dog, he also didn't want to leave the facility of free food and grooming. Dogs like him find homes in Canada. But in India, he must go back to the street.

Random case with no particular mentor. Rescued and admitted by PAWS volunteer Rana Panchanan.

Donation received: ₹1,100 from Rana Panchanan.

Cost incurred:
1) Sheltering and medicines for 1 month ₹1,800.
Shortfall ₹700.

Kind donors are requested to help PAWS in treating dogs whose mentors cannot pay in full. Donation receipts in July were not enough to meet the shelter costs. Help PAWS serve and survive.

Poltu Sadhu of Barasat!

We should say 'Late' Poltu Sadhu, but we shall not. Although it's been more than a month since his sudden and sad demise on 10/07/2019, he is living within the hearts of all shopkeepers near Barasat District Court.

He was a simple soul who did puja at a small local temple and fed 30+ dogs, treated them for injuries, resisted human tortures on them and all that he did using his meager earnings from puja work that he did for several lawyers and traders.

He passed away, but PAWS will be at the side of his dogs as long as PAWS exists.

PAWS had treated many of his cases in the past such as #CaseNo307 shown at m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1883156061981720&id=1490798644550799

And,

#CaseNo134 at m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1644768802487115&id=1490798644550799

Kolkata had become worried upon his demise about the fate of the dogs he fed and one such multi-shared tabloid posts is still visible at m.facebook.com/groups/1382277738753927?view=permalink&id=2325700644411627

But PAWS doesn't 'worry'. PAWS works silently and effectively. When the initial wave of sympathy disappeared, Nilanjana Roy of PAWS got down to work and arranged feeding of the dogs from 17/07/2019 and on 22/07/2019 she took a further step to create long lasting local sympathy.

She organized a Shraddha Ceremony for the departed soul right within the market place by the roadside in which most of the traders participated and vowed to allow the dogs to live in peace provided that PAWS should feed them.

Right from that date PAWS continues to feed them full belly meals and it costs ₹4,500 per month. Please see the captioned pictures.

Kind donors are requested to come forward and reduce the load on PAWS so that the feeding can be sustained.

PAWS shelter is full!
Two ways to create more space:
1) Expansion of sheds. Needs another ₹75,000 of investment that's a distant dream.
2) Adoption of some 10 lifetime sheltered dogs that are very healthy and well trained.

Animal lovers who have large houses may please come forward and choose their dogs from PAWS Adoption Gallery

That will allow us to admit 10 injured or sick dogs from the streets.

"I want to keep Indian breed dogs at home, but i have a baby at home."

Foreign dogs are so obedient and trained. Desi dogs can't be trained.

All rubbish assumptions! So tell me, Desi Dogs or Indian children--who are more obedient?

#CaseNo587, 19/08/19 night 9 pm, Habra--25 km North of Barasat, pure Indian Pariah male of 5-6 yrs age named 'Habu', reportedly hit on the neck with heavy object 'just one day before' and paralyzed, crying in pain; but that misconception lead to a massive Rabies scare at shelter upon arrival.

Update, 21/08/2019:
Infected swelling and dog bite injury on his face is nearly gone now. Through 3-4 days prior to rescue he was extremely famished and dehydrated. Hence he had no strength to move. Now he's gaining strength through PAWS care.

Case of Mr. Subrata Das, West Bengal Fire Service. Reported by him that Habu was lying in distress at his home town Habra.

We had requested Mr. Suman Chakrabarty of Habra to rush there for initial treatment and sent him a prescription by our Consultant Vet. Many thanks to him for providing the instant first aid medication. Upon inspection at shelter, suspicions of Rabies had become alarming and he had been quarantined to outer kennels.

Further medication was continued and he survived. Animal lovers not being able to provide full and correct info leads us to panic.

Donation received: Nothing up to now, but the mentor Mr. Subrata Das has assured he will pay what is required.

Cost estimated:
1) Sheltering and medicines for at least 7 days: ₹450 apart from diagnostic tests if required.

Kind donors are requested to help PAWS in treating other dogs who don't have any willing mentors. Donation receipts in July were not enough to meet the shelter costs. Help PAWS serve and survive.

Gifts from Budge Budge College (Estd 1971), in the loving memory of Malati!

We had sent out SOS "Now it's we who must cry out, Please do something to save the animals".

Leaking roof, low plinth level, lack of adequate waterproof curtains against rain lashing at and around dog bays. All this has resulted in this flooding today at PAWS shelter. ₹40,000+ required to make the shelter flood proof.

Mrs. Debjani Datta Principal and her staff of the College became determined to do something.

Today they loaded our car with three large tarpaulin sheets to replace the cladding on our leading roofs of three sheds. Installation will be at our cost with the help of ₹10,000 received recently from one kind lady who is unknown to us.

Along with that they packed in several goodies in a box that are now displayed. Biscuits, handwash, cotton wool etc, plus a gift for our shelter staff Piyali. Good quality. Tarpaulin is also displayed here in the pic.

PAWS is the ONLY animal Treatment shelter between Bowbazar and Malda. Donors are requested to help us to progress accommodate more animals that are lying untreated on the streets.
