VOSD Sanctuary Expansion
THE COLONY OF DOGS: VOSD EXPANSION PROJECT
Did you know we fly/ drive/ bring by train 100+ 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 had no home in India they have one at VOSD. And they have the best care in the world.
They come home to the first no-kill Dog Sanctuary in India, arguably the largest in the world with 850+ resident dogs 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).
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)
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.
