Surrendering your pet dog MUST be your last option. VoSD provides this facility, only so that you do NOT abandon the dog. We are interested in the welfare and well-being of the dog. If you have exhausted all other avenues, you can surrender your dog to the VoSD Rescue, SUBJECT TO our calling upon you to do so.
- If we are persuaded that the circumstance warrants our intervention, and that you’re the owner of the dog and have shared accurate and verifiable information, we will accept any dog, without passing judgment on you.
- This policy is entirely on VoSD’s discretion and can be discontinued, withdrawn or modified at any time without notice.
- The decision of accepting or not accepting a dog rests solely with VoSD.
Read on, if because of any circumstance you have decided not to keep your pet dog with you. In such a case you can surrender your dog to VoSD. HOWEVER, you cannot simply bring the dog to us. Please follow the Process of Surrendering your Dog to VoSD below
What types of dogs CAN’T you surrender
Please remember, you need to prove you’re the owner of the dog, and provide its medical history in order to be able to surrender the dog to us.
- You can’t ‘surrender’ a dog you have ‘rescued’ this could be an adult dog or a pup.
- You can’t ‘surrender’ a stray dog that lives in your street. Displacing a street dog is an illegal act in Indian law ; and in any event, the vacuum that you create by displacing a street dog will be filled up by other street dog/s.
- Picking a pup off the street, especially a pup that has a mother and is not an orphaned, all alone pup, is in fact tantamount to displacing the little dog, which is contrary to law. If you wish to pick such a pup off the street with a view to getting it adopted, this facility is NOT available to you.
- You can’t surrender a pet dog that belongs to that may have been entrusted to you temporarily and belongs to your spouse or children or parents. That is a breach trust.
This is about surrendering a pet dog that you find yourself unable to keep, on account of circumstances that you’ll have to disclose to us by first writing to us at email@example.com.

The Revised Circular seeks to supplement what was earlier issued, and to add to it. It is stated to have been issued in response to “requests received, to lend clarity and provide answers to recurring vexed questions”, and sets out the correct position in law with respect to various aspects concerning pet dogs and street dogs. The Revised AWBI Circular issued today, i.e. on 20th February, 2014, can be seen at the bottom of this post Also see the following articles on The Voice of Stray Dogs web-site that deal with the same or similar subjects :

- On how a ‘Pet Parents Association’ fought against, and resisted unlawful restrictions on pets, and mistreatment of strays by their RWA
- On how to deal with unlawful restrictions on pet dogs and street dogs imposed by apartment owners associations, housing societies, and RWAs
