How do your donations help us?
At VOSD we believe that stray dogs and abandoned pet dogs deserve love too. If you share our vision, you can help us with your donations towards our dog expenses. Every donation is acknowledged and accounted for and is spent frugally to help better the lives of our furry friends.
Taking into account dog food/maintenance cost, you’ll understand that the overall cost of maintaining a dog is quite high. And with nearly every passing day, we’re accommodating more and more stray and abused dogs in our sanctuary. We have the capacity to admit ~1400 dogs. We only admit dogs that cannot survive on the streets due to illness, disability like blindness, old dog, cruelty survivor dogs, aggressive dogs, etc. Our surrender process is geared to admit such ‘unadoptable’ dogs. We do not admit moms and full litters or pups younger than 6 months. We believe that healthy stray dogs can survive well in their environment and should not be relocated which is also clearly stated in animal welfare law of India. To provide adequate facilities and meet our monthly expenses, we need your help as patrons.
Every INR donation towards our dog expenses comes with a tax exemption under Section 80G, Income Tax Act, and donations of INR 500 and above are eligible for 50% tax exemption.
No matter what amount you wish to donate, it means a lot to us and our dogs.
All your donations are highly secure via encrypted payment gateways, making it completely safe. You can be assured of complete transparency throughout the process thanks to regular updates on our social media and emailers. For any donation related queries, feel free to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we don’t have a helpline number.

Adopt strays in your community
Have you ever thought of adopting a dog? Doing so would give a stray dog a loving home and a family. VOSD only focuses on taking in dogs that are deemed “unadoptable”, so when you adopt a healthy stray dog, it will help us put more time and energy on caring for the stray dogs in need. Alternatively you can pitch in to the monthly dog expenses of any of our dogs, being a benefactor for them.
Help us feed our dogs
Once you look at our monthly expenses breakdown, it is evident that we spend a large part of our funds on feeding our dogs. You can help subsidise the high dog food cost per month by helping us with donations to purchase dog food. Please note that we do not accept any donations in kind.
Special event donations
Gifting others on your birthday or a special day is a selfless act that can bring you joy. Help make our paw-some friends happy by asking friends and family to donate toVOSD Sanctuary and Hospital on your special days.
