THE COLONY OF DOGS: VOSD EXPANSION PROJECT

Rakesh Shukla with one of our rescued dogs Ricky at the VOSD Sanctuary.

Did you know we fly/ drive/ bring by train 200 rescued dogs from 30+ cities across India each year and a similar number from Bangalore. VOSD ONLY takes dogs NOBODY else will take when they’re beaten, broken, mutilated, old or aggressive. If a dog has no home in India they have one at VOSD. And they have the best care in the world.

Did you know VOSD Sanctuary is ‘the’ Dog Sanctuary of India & is home to over 850+ rescued stray and abandoned pet dogs?

They come home to one of the first no-kill Dog Sanctuary in India, arguably the largest in the world but definitely the finest. We’ve our own fully equipped 10,000+ sq feet hospital, surgeries and recovery area. 3 large ambulances and a pickup dedicated for the dog’s needs. There’s 50+ individual 100-200 sq ft kennels, underground drainage, underground irrigation and underground electrical wiring over many acres. 3 swimming pools, a jet powered hydrotherapy pool and an agility park for dogs (under construction).

Rescued Dogs across India need more space so we’re expanding from 900+ to 1400+ dogs. This video is only a glimpse what we’re doing. 28 new enclosures are being built over a 33,600 SQ feet area with water, drainage, power lines all underground. Please help India’s dogs by helping us expand. Support us by making a small donation today!

Watch this video which shows the expansion work in progress as of Feb 2020. 50% of the construction has been completed which equals 14 plots that have now these beautiful homes for our dogs.

VOSD Expansion project update Jan 2020

50% of the VOSD sanctuary area has non-standard construction with unplanned/ poor land use. As a result one part of the sanctuary only houses ~250 dogs. Changing the land use there will easily bring this capacity to ~750+ dogs

RECONSTRUCTION OVER 33,600 sq feet
– 28 plots, each 30 feet x 40 feet are laid out on either side
– Of a 10 feet wide stone path, such that the outer perimeter of these 30×40 feet plots is the outside boundary of the 1.5 acre plot
– Each plot has a cement and concrete ‘house’ measuring 10×15 feet with one door and 2 windows so dogs have a 4 side open area and indoor area
– The layout factors in the 300 trees planted in this area not cutting or pruning any of them.

28 PLOTS EACH WITH:
-1 room measuring 150 sq feet of flooring + 150 sq feet or roofing with 10’ high concrete brick walls, plastered and painted with washable distemper & with 2 windows, 1 door (total 4200 sq feet of roofed area)
-Underground drainage for all plots
-Power connection for all rooms with light fittings
-A set of 2 gates for each plot
-6 feet chain link fence on all sides but with 10 feet high cement wall on the external perimeter (~1000 running feet)
-Streetlights on steel masts at 200 feet along the path with 4 streetlights in each cluster
-Motorable road between the plots (~1000 feet)

INCREASED CAPACITY
Total capacity in Phase 2 is ~750 dogs up from ~250 dogs. Total capacity at VOSD Sanctuary will become ~1400 dogs, up from ~900 dogs.
