Cruelty Survivor Dogs


Have you Rescued an Abused Dog?

Unfortunately, dogs  pet or stray, are often subjected to cruelty. In case you have encountered such a case, be mindful that VOSD cannot rescue the dog from the situation, since we do not operate any rescue services.

However, if you have rescued the dog and the dog is in your custody, we can offer the dog a permanent and safe home.

To understand our procedure for cruelty survivors, please read the information below and share the required details with us to begin this process.

Free Surrender – Cruelty Survivor Dogs

If you are a rescuer of a cruelty survivor dog, then you may surrender the dog to the VOSD Sanctuary without any surrender fees.

At VOSD Sanctuary, we have hundreds of happy healthy dogs, each one has their own terrible story of apathy or cruelty firmly in the past. Each was rescued. Some came without legs, or faces or eyes. Burnt by acid or scalding water. Tied to railway tracks to be run over by trains. Amputated by meat vendors for hovering around meat shops. Raped by men. Blind or paralysed dogs unable to survive on the street. Sometimes Rottweilers and German Shepherds labeled ‘aggressive’ because owners could not learn how to keep the dog. All of them call VOSD home. They run around like it never happened.


Surrender Your Dog to VOSD

If you have exhausted all other avenues, you can surrender your dog to the VOSD, SUBJECT TO our calling upon you to do so. For this you have to write to info@vosd.in with all details about the dog and 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 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  • This policy is entirely on VOSD’s discretion and can be discontinued, withdrawn or modified at any time without notice.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 follow the process of surrendering your dog to VOSD.

stage 01

To admit a cruelty survivor dog to the VOSD Sanctuary and Hospital, you will have to email the following documents to us at info@vosd.in :

    • Pictures and/or videos of the cruelty case
    • Police complaint about the case, including FIR (If registered)
    • Vet certificate about nature of injuries and line of treatment given to the dog

After these documents are reviewed our team will give you permission to surrender the dog to VOSD. You will have to take custody of the dog and complete the process mentioned below. There is no surrender fees to admit a cruelty survivor dog to VOSD. 

stage 02
  1. 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 and proof of the abuse in some form. It could even be a recording of the owner admitting to hurting 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

  2. 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.
  3. VOSD will pay the boarding fees till we pick up the dog from the boarding center.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. If you do not agree with our surrender policy, kindly do not approach us to surrender the dog.
  7. Please note that we don’t admit non-vaccinated dogs to VOSD.

NOTE: If you choose to surrender a dog to the VOSD Sanctuary and Hospital, please remember that this is still as per the terms of the VOSD Standard Operating Procedures, which means no individual updates are provided for surrendered dogs and visits are not allowed.
