Help VOSD bring home 100 #PatriotDogs!

Posted on | March 14, 2017 | No Comments

VOSD wants to help 100 #PatriotDogs live a happy retired life in a purpose-built facility at the VOSD Sanctuary. Support us at ket.to/patriotdogs

Thousands of dogs serve our country as part of the Indian Army, the Police, the Railway Police Force, CISF, etc. About 1200 serve in just the Army. At VOSD, we call them #PatriotDogs. With VOSD’s deep experience of over 200,000+ treatments, 7,000+ rescues, and 750+ permanent dogs, and world-class medical and technological support, we have been keeping #PatriotDogs discharged by the Karnataka, Kerala, and Railway Police Forces among others.

#PatriotDogs are trained in various specialties like explosive detection, tracking down insurgents or terrorists, and mounting massive search-and-rescues. From the tender age of just two months, they serve our country through the prime of their lives – usually 8-10 years. It’s a sad fact that till recently, they were euthanised at the end of their service.

At the end of 2015, the courts put a stop to this tragic practice, but the concern remains the same. Where will these #PatriotDogs go when they can no longer serve?

They are not cute and cuddly and ready for adoption. Most are senior dogs, and they carry the weight of their jobs — most are arthritic, many have other illnesses as well. Some are younger but have been discharged from service due to medical reasons. From being working dogs, on duty every day, their lives suddenly change and they are confined to a kennel, away from their handlers. Neither can their handlers adopt them, as there is no pension or allowance to care for these #PatriotDogs.

At VOSD, we have approached – and in turn, been approached by – several organisations to provide a home for their retired #PatriotDogs. In the past year alone, we have added dogs from the Kerala Police, the Karnataka Police, the Railway Police Force, the Indian Army. Just last month, a one-year-old Police dog was declared unfit to serve due to a congenital heart condition. He came home to us.

We believe it’s time to do something for our #PatriotDogs, who have given us the best of their lives. This year, we want to add not just a few, but 100 #PatriotDogs to the VOSD Sanctuary.

#PatriotDogs like Chakki and Christy, two ageing German Shepherds from the Kerala Police, spent their time lying in the sun, or playing “fetch” with our team. #PatriotDogs like Arjun, a senior Labrador from the Karnataka Police – his handlers brought him from Hubli, and left him with a garland around his neck, and a tearful farewell.

We have a great deal of experience in dealing with old, unwell, abandoned dogs. The VOSD Sanctuary now homes 750+ dogs permanently, many of them old and on lifelong medication. We want to do something special for our #PatriotDogs.

– Build out a purpose built 10,000 sq. ft. enclosure only for our canine heroes

– Ensure daily lifelong care with joint medication, and renal, liver and cardiac support that is required for each of them

– Create an exercise/play area for the more active dogs so that they do not miss their working lives

– Give them the dedicated love and care that only VOSD can provide, proof of which are our happy resident dogs at the VOSD Sanctuary

But we will not be able to do this without your help. Even at our scale of operation, it costs us close to Rs 2000 a month to care for a senior dog, or one with special needs. Help us meet those costs, as well as the cost of building new infrastructure on our existing property. Every paisa counts, and at VOSD, everything goes to the dogs – there are no administrative costs or overheads.

Sarvodaya led by Vinay Moray and its reps, rants in a court pliant in their continued tirade & effort in colluding with others to malign and close down VoSD – Part I

Posted on | December 13, 2014 | No Comments

VoSD writing on this publication is seldom about personal statements made for us, except in exceptional cases where the falsity is hugely absurd and action reeks of outright vendetta – and with one purpose only ‘close VoSD’. This was the demand laid out by Sneha Maiyya in police station in front of several of my colleagues and police officers – complaint will be withdrawn if VoSD is closed down immediately! The irony is that none of the people and parties that wish that for VoSD provide any credible rescue service at all! And of course they have no mandate since VoSD still does not function on public money. What do you do in situations like this – keep making police complaints.

The low personal level at which Mr Bafna gave an ‘official’ response is given here, the allegations and developments of the repeated complaints made by Sneha Maiyya are here, and now you can see the language and level of false allegations by Sarvodaya Sevebhavi Sanstha on VoSD for restraining us from using a name we did not use, and organizing an TGIDS ’14 – an event which we were not organizing! Ms Maiyya has in earlier litigation been collusive with Mr Bafna, represented by the same lawyer (its a matter of public record), and Mr Vinay Moray was an employee of Mr Bafna at ARF (also a matter of public record).

The circumstance of the TGIDS ’14 show, and our lack of involvement has been referred to before here. It was clear that neither was VoSD an organizer nor have ever made a claim on the name or term. That discussion is purely between Blue Cross of India, Sarvodaya and the team that organizes TGIDS. The attempt through this disclosure is only to make a public record of what the plaint of Sarvodaya through Mr Vinay Moray has to say for a situation that did not involve us and yet makes us the defendant to put into effect what they really want!

These are a few nuggets from their pliant which they know to be absolutely false and is being concealed with the court, when VoSD records as a trust and a tax payer, of our transparency, process, automation, all are available with you from the beginning on this website, on the VoSD FAQs page and the VoSD Facebook page for years. When nothing that Sarvodaya does in any of these respects is a fraction of what we do everyday.

  • ‘VoSD is a run as a ‘sub-business of TWB’, which collects funds in lacs, violates many sections of PCA, ABC Dog Rules 2001, runs a ‘shelter somewhere’ where none is allowed, their ‘business activities about animal welfare are non-transparent! (item 2, pp2)
    • All these aspects have been covered as described above and a rubuttal will not be made since that will be supplied to the court
  • From public records they have determined that dogs are euthanized and relocated and bogus reports are posted on the website’ and the FIR made by Sneha Maiyya is given as evidence. (item 2, pp2)
    • The funny thing is that VoSD could not get that FIR without a court order but M/s Sarvodaya and Mr Vinay Moray has it evidently from the source! It points to collusion which will be brought out in further articles.
  • ‘VoSD recommended to AWBI to close down ABC contractors such as ARF and AWS and targeted government departments and officials to hamper the ABC program in Bangalore’
    • Right! Any real information on the execution of ABC program in Bangalore and maybe in India is found at VoSD. Its not convenient to any of these guys.
  • ‘RTIs show that VoSD does ABC and collects public funds, not authorised by the BBMP! (item 3, pp2)
    • Everyone knows VoSD doesn’t do ABC – but the attempt here is to bring us into the ambit of the corruption ridden world of NGOs running publicly funded ABC programs
  • ‘VoSD is trying to use the goodwill of Sarvodaya’ (item 12, pp4)
    • That’s just funny :)

In the same pliant they claim they do ABC for at least 300 dogs a month! Mr Moray and M/S Sarvodaya you do that on our money – taxpayers money that we pay to BBMP so there are no favors there. VoSD does more rescue of critical dogs in a month than you do ABC. And more rescue in a day than you do in a year. And its not on tax payers money. And that is the difference. But you know it already don’t you?

Rescue of 31 cattle by PFCI in Perumanallur (Tirupur District) Tamilnadu: A Case Study

The text describes the the rescue of 31 cattle by People For Cattle India (PFCI) in Perumanallur (Tirupur District), Tamilnadu.  The article is terribly important for 3 reasons:  Unlike in most such cases the cattle were not released by police order etc. They stay rescued. PFCI makes an aggressive & legally sound complaint that enforces an FIR and therefore the matter is not just for the police to decide but the courts. The cattle as from so many parts of AndhraPradesh, Tamilnadu & ...
