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.

This little puppy in Salt Lake Sector 5 would have grown into a massive Black Bengal Mastiff. He grew to this size and health in 2 months on Drools food supplied to his feeder by PAWS. He was a skinny and sickly bag of bones when his feeder rescued him soon after lockdown started.

Now he's gone. Crushed under wheels.

A million dollar question in Animal Warfare! Several people keep on politicking about what exactly is PAWS doing for the animals.

Those who follow PAWS since the last 3.5 yrs, they already know. New followers need to be told.

1) PAWS runs Kennel Club of Indians at www.facebook.com/groups/268815870156651/
It is continuously trying to breed brand the 25+ unrecognised breeds of Indian dogs so that this brand conscious society gradually learns to value them, society acts against cruelties they suffer, so that more and more people should feel proud about keeping Indian dogs at home.

2) PAWS runs a Page called Bhulo Dutt who is the consort of Chhyagah or ChhuggLee who you see in the profile picture. It strives to continuously publish stories of Bhulo Dutt the Proudest Indian Alive at Bhulo Dutt that page launched in 2011 being the first ever FB Page of an Indian dog. It aims to educate public about what fun it is to keep Indian cats and dogs at home, how to train them well for good household behaviour.

3) PAWS acts on each and every case of cruelty that is presented in an actionable format as per guidelines.

4) PAWS spreads knowledge on animal health in general so that animals don't suffer wrong treatment at the hands of animal lovers and makes people conscious of so many schemes run by PAWS to makes street animal care affordable.

5) PAWS runs a unique membership scheme shown at www.facebook.com/1490798644550799/posts/2319801161650539/ that is basically an animal insurance scheme against diseases, injuries and for sterilization at heavily discounted rates.

6) PAWS is signed also using the money of 76 donors to feed 200+ dogs since 23 March through 72 km from Barasat through Kolkata Airport, New Town and Salt Lake Sector 5 to Ultadanga Railway Station.

7) PAWS also runs the only animal treatment shelter between Bowbazar at Central Kolkata and Malda in Northern portion of West Bengal.

PAWS is not an ordinary NGO. PAWS is a movement, an NGO of the people, by the people FOR the animals and is run with corporate efficiency.

২১ মে সকালে যখন হাউসিঙ্গের গেট থেকে বেড়িয়ে রোজকার মতো কয়েকটা কুকুরকে খাওয়াতে যাচ্ছি তখনই কানের ভিতরে ফিস ফিস!

"মুখোশ কই? ভুলে গেছো?"

গুরুগম্ভীর তথাপি মৃদু স্বরটি কিঞ্চিৎ কৌতুক ভরা এবং আমি একটু বিব্রত।

ভারী স্বরের গুঞ্জন, "ছাড়ান দাও। মুখোশ, স্যানিটাইজার, কন্টেনমেন্ট, কোয়ারণটাইন, সোশ্যাল ডিস্টেন্স, টিকা...যা খুশী তাই করে নাও। আমি কিন্তু আমার স্যানিটাইজার স্প্রে নিয়ে তৈরী।"

"তাহলে স্প্রেটা কই?", ভাবতে শুরু করলাম।

হাজির জবাব, "ওহ, রাস্তাগুলো ভেজা দেখছো না? কিন্তু সব সময়েই, হেঁ হেঁ 😉, ওই যাকে তোমরা বলো আনুসঙ্গিক ধ্বংস হবেই, যেমন কিনা আমার জঙ্গলের মধ্যে দিয়ে তোমরা রাস্তা বানালে হয়। আমার স্প্রে তো বহু দূর থেকে আসে, তাই সুক্ষভাবে গন্তব্যে পৌঁছাবার জন্য অনেক বেশী শক্তি লাগে।"

স্তম্ভিত ও আতঙ্কিত হয়ে আমার বিড়বিড় "তাহলে কি মুখোশ আর লাগবে না?"

"লাভ নেই কিছু; আমার মিক্সার-গ্রাইন্ডার সব কন্টেনমেন্ট ভেঙে দিয়েছে।"

আর কোনো প্রশ্নের ঔদ্ধত্য দেখলাম না। স্বরটি ততক্ষনে 'গায়েব, ইটস গন, চলে গেছে' হয়ে গেছে।

Admission at PAWS remains generally closed! Amphan left us devastated.

The condition of tattered roof sheeting of the front Kennel can be seen as shot today afternoon, the day after the storm. Although this Kennel has capacity of 25 dogs, all 25 of them have been evacuated, packed into the 2 rooms in the main building and the 2 newly rebuilt sheds.

The roofing of the front Kennel could not be repaired because that required another Rs. 40,000 to buy metal sheets, which we didn't have.

Non-availability of this critical area of the shelter during storms is the only reason we had to stop admissions because we had to keep reserve space for relocation during storms. We spent a sleepless night last night, praying and praying that the newly repaired roofing of other Kennels shouldn't be blown away. God has been merciful that they held good.

Many thanks again to the 15 donors out of our 6,500+ patrons of the Page who had donated to rebuild the roofing of two Kennel areas which we could manage to complete just one day before the storm. We had listed their names and contributed amounts at www.facebook.com/1490798644550799/posts/2396654210631900/

Fortunately the 2 areas where new metallic sheeting had been installed have been saved and all dogs could be sheltered there huddled against each other in fear. Fear prevented them from fighting.

To help PAWS repair the front Kennel roof after Amphan left us devastated, more donors may please contribute urgently:

When I went out this morning to feed a few dogs around our housing with their routine feed, someone whispered inside my ear.

"Where's your mask? Forgotten?"

There was a quiet humour in the very deep voice. I was apologetic.

The heavy voice continued, "Don't bother. Mask, sanitizer, containment, quarantine, social distancing, vaccine...you do what you want. I'm always there with my sanitizer spray."

"So where's the spray?", I began to think.

His answer was ready. "Oh, the streets are all wet with it. But there's always some, heh heh😉, collateral damage as you call it when you build highways through my forests. My sprays come from very far, so the power required for accurate delivery is always quite a bit more."

Totally terrified, I mumbled "But don't we need masks any more?"

"No use actually; my mixer-grinder mixed up everything and broken down all containment".

No further questions came to my mind. The Voice was just 'gayeb, gone, chole gechhe'.

Mass Feed on 20.05.20, curse of Nature remained during the feeding of 7 hrs through 72 km shown in 4.5 min of video for you, Rs. 13,000 in bank and the 76 kind donors who made this possible!

But unfortunately, it may have to stop after another 4 days because of nearly zero donation received in May.

Scroll to the bottom to see also how PAWS has managed the donations of 76 people collected for mass feeding to keep alive 200+ dogs and make them healthy too.

Yes, we've been out feeding the dogs even on 20 May in the storm just like everyday since 24 March, that's through the last 57 days. Rs. 2,000 plus spent each day including the cost of car which itself is Rs. 500+ plus at highly subsidized rate for the long and stop and start trip.

See the video for the GPS report of dog feeding trip of PAWS on the morning of 20 May from 3am before you woke up and up to 10 am when many started their lockdown and cyclone yawn before getting out of bed.

What did we gain? The health of 200+ dogs we feed has become shining and when you get back to work in those places where they don't get food because you're not able to go to work.

When you get back to work you'll feel like taking them home because they are now as handsome as any pet dog. We are doing it for them because we want their image to be uplifted in your eyes. That's our gain and reward.

Drools food by PAWS and chicken rice 4 buckets full have turned them into fur balls.

But how can we continue without your help? In April, there have been many donors as follows. But since the beginning of May, there have been no donations and bank balance is down to Rs. 13,000 after spending Rs. 65,000+ for partial repair of the shelter roofing because of which the shelter dogs are not getting wet today.

Animal lovers keep on crying about high cost of feeding stray dogs. And yet this post has just 3 likes. God help the strays. PAWS is doing everything required for providing cheap options for them by negotiating with suppliers. But PAWS definitely cannot pay for food of all dogs on the streets.Struggling to meet costs of feeding stray dogs and cats?

Why not go for Drools or Purepet food provided by PAWS? It costs Rs. 12 per animal per day as shown at www.facebook.com/1490798644550799/posts/2392271611070160/

For PAWS members, the cost is Rs. 10 per animal per day!
