Munna Hazarey VOSD Rescued Dog
The simplest way forward will be to approach the owner as a neighbor and concerned citizen. And offer to help with advice on living conditions, medical help, socialisation, etc. If approached directly, politely but firmly most people will both engage and give you access to the dog. That’s also the best way of assessing what’s really going on. We get many requests to help but the reporter does not want to be a part of the engagement — unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. Even if a crime if beingRead More

Tick Fever Treatment

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laid out by Sneha Maiyya in police station in front of several of my colleagues and police officers – complaint will be withdrawn if VoSD is closed down immediately!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 serviceRead More

The Force of Falsity, by Amit Chaudhery

Outlook published ‘Prime Cuts’ with the byline ‘An air thick with innuendo and contempt produces a new stigma: meat-eating’. Amit Chaudhery wrote a rebuttal that Outlook refused to publish. It is published on ‘The Voice of Stray Dogs’ in its entirety.   “You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity” — Ralph Waldo Emerson Perspective is everything and reality is the servant of perception. A simple premise which spawned this rebuttal to the cover story by Saba Naqvi  inRead More

VoSD’s SOP is clear that we will NOT allow any casual visitors to our facilities – only registered volunteers and employees are allowed. The people who have the most problem with this it are a section of Bangalore ‘activists’ working for a couple of NGOs and their sympathizers and the spammers working for them that has been referred to in an earlier post (picked up by the trashy yellow journalist and editor of Bangalore Mirror). These guys have the option of registering – but will not. We are on recordRead More
The text describes the rescue of  cattle by People for Animal Welfare Services (PAWS), Thrissur, Kerala being illegally transported. Kerala and West Bengal allow the slaughter of cattle (which for the rest of India its not allowed but prevalent). Prior published reading on VoSD on illegal cattle transport and slaughter here Credits & references Pictures: Kannan Anchery & Preethi Sreevalsan (PAWS Thrissur).

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 & Karnataka were being smuggled into Kerala forRead More
