On August 7th 2011 the Vadodara Center for Animal Rescue and Emergency (VCARE) received a call from the Market Inspector of the ‘Vadodara Mahanagar Seva Sadan’ about a dog which had in ‘5 days bitten close to 21 people’ in the Muktananda Circle in Karelibaug area.

Watch the video’s on a troop of 67 monkeys in 3 crammed cages at the dog pounds. This were taken on 25th Sept 2011. As on 27 Sept 2011 they are still there. The monkey catchers clearly said on 25th that they caught and brought them there a week back (so today would be 10 […]

There are many arguments one has read about how stray dogs in the urban environment ‘can’t coexist with people’. There’s no space – they attack kids – they make the place dirty. And the solution depending from whom you listen to, ranges from kills all of them – to – humanely euthanize them – to […]
