November 2010 – News in pictures

Amongst other animals, ten new pups came to us in mid November. 3 out of the 10 have been rehomed in good homes. Families are being considered for the remaining 7. We reckon that the 4 female pups will end up staying behind as people prefer male pups.

Here are a few pictures from our place in Almora.

The dogs getting eager…

The 7 new pups get their stomachs full with a mixed diet of vegetables, rice and cottage cheese.

The older dogs eagerly wait their turn..

The naughty ones need to be kept away from the others at mealtime. These two were rescued around the same time and are almost the same number of months old, but are extremely naughty and fight with eachother for domination.

Some have to fed separetely for their peace

Uttrakhand woman has 50 stray dogs in her house

ALMORA: For the past 25-26 years, a woman at Almora in Uttrakhand has been providing shelter to stray dogs in her house.
Kamini Kashyap, an advocate by profession, takes care of around 50 stray dogs.
Whenever she spots any stray dog suffering, she brings it to her house and takes care of it along with other dogs.
Kamini who feeds and cleans the dogs just like her own children inherited this benevolence from her mother who is now no more in this world.

“Just like a devotee who worships God, I am devoted to these dogs. What I do for them is my worship. I might compromise my own work, but not theirs whether it is feeding them or cleaning them,” said Kamini.

Kamini receives help in her task from Kamla who prepares food for these animals.
“I get up in the morning, cook food for them, feed them and also make them drink water. Then I start with my daily work. This is how I spend each day,” said Kamla.

Kamini is not happy with the apathetic attitude of the Government towards the stray animals. She feels strongly about the need to do something for their betterment.
