Surrender a blind stray dog
BEFORE YOU SURRENDER A DOG
Blind Stray Dogs
Some stray dogs are born blind and some become blind due to aging, injury due to road accidents, or diseases like SARDS. Vision problems can be partial or full blindness. An untreated eye infection, injury, or stroke can result in temporary or permanent blindness in dogs. Blindness is sometimes a secondary symptom of common diseases like diabetes or diseases of the liver, kidney, or heart.
Many stray dogs are born blind or get injured and are therefore unable to adapt to life on the street, or it becomes a 100 times harder for them to do so. It is for this reason that we are happy to take in a blind stray dog.
Even a blind dog that can’t see its surroundings will have a tough time adjusting to a new environment.
VOSD WILL ALWAYS HAVE SPACE FOR BLIND DOGS
Blind dogs need the most care as their chances of surviving on the streets independently are poor. Most blind stray dogs die horrible deaths and are either crushed by vehicles or fall into ditches, etc.
VOSD admits blind stray dogs from all across India. There are no surrender fees to admit blind stray dogs. It doesn’t matter if the blindness is partial or full, we always have a place for blind stray dogs.
A dog in our care at the VOSD Sanctuary & Hospital will have the best protection from the elements, a warm bed, nutritious food, and clean water, and best veterinary care.
Surrender Your Dog to VOSD
You can surrender a blind stray dog if there is no one willing to re-home or adopt the dog. VOSD provides safe harbour and a good life to blind dogs. We are interested in the welfare and well-being of the dog. You can surrender your dog to VOSD, SUBJECT TO our calling upon you to do so. For this you have to write to firstname.lastname@example.org with all details of the dog and the reason why you wish to surrender the dog to VOSD.
- If we are persuaded that the circumstance warrants our intervention, and that you’re the owner or temporary guardian 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- This policy is entirely on VOSD’s discretion and can be discontinued, withdrawn, or modified at any time without notice.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.
- Please note that there is no surrender fee if you choose to surrender a blind stray dog.
Please follow the process of surrendering your dog to VOSD.
SURRENDER PROCESS EXPLAINED
- For blind dogs, we require proof of the dog’s blindness. This may be in the form of video and/or photographic evidence.
- Once you get approval to surrender a dog to VOSD, you need to send us the vaccination and medical certificates as mentioned on the surrender link that will be shared with you.
(1) A vet certificate on the dog’s age
(2) Dog’s present condition
(3) Diagnosis and prescription of medicines, if any
(4) A photograph of the dog
(5) We will receive the dog from you on verification that the dog is tick and flea free (since the dog will come to a boarding/halfway home first)
(6) DLHPPi + Rabies shot documents.
- Our team will connect you with our boarding partner in Bangalore to drop the dog. You will have to bear the transport cost as we do not provide transportation.
- VOSD will pay the boarding fees till we pick up the dog from the boarding center.
- After we pick up the dog from the boarding partner center, our team will send you an update when the dog reaches VOSD. That is the only update we share about surrendered dogs before we close the surrender ticket.
- We do not allow visits for surrendered dogs nor do we provide any individual updates about the surrendered dog. This is our standard surrender policy.
- If you do not agree with our surrender policy, kindly do not approach us to surrender the dog.
- Please note that we don’t admit non-vaccinated dogs to VOSD.
NOTE: If you choose to bring a blind stray dog to the VOSD Sanctuary and Hospital, please remember that this is still as per the terms of the VOSD Standard Operating Procedure on visitation, which means no individual updates are provided for surrendered dogs and visits are not allowed.
