Looking for dog adoption in Kolkata and not sure, who to contact?

The city of Joy, Kolkata, often has readers reaching out to us for adoption updates or animal helpline numbers. In this blog post, we’ve compiled a list of charitable foundations, NGOs and shelters in Kolkata which you may adopt a dog from. You can also contact them in case you spot an injured animal.

Please consider adopting Indian pariah dogs as they make amazing pets.

You can so often find abandoned pets in dog shelters, relegated to their fate just because their humans ran out of affection or discarded them like last season’s accessories. When you hand these pets a new leash at love, you help save a life. In the Kolkata dog shelters, aside from puppies, you’d also come across dogs rescued from cruelty, trauma, and abandonment. All waiting for a chance at love and life.

In case you are trying to help an injured animal – please note that not all of these shelters may have an ambulance. If you can take the injured animal to the nearest facility, it would be great. If you have called up the animal shelter, and they’ve dispatched an ambulance, please see if you can comfort the animal in need and provide first aid, and care till the ambulance arrives.

Please consider that most of these shelters are often understaffed and in need of resources – which may not always be financial aid but even old clothes, newspapers or most important of them, your time as a volunteer.

This isn’t an exhaustive list – if you know of any other resources that may be of help with regard to dog adoption in Kolkata, please suggest them in the comments below.

  1. I am writing to you with a heavy heart and a humble request. I have a 3-year-old Labrador dog named Eli, who has been with me for the past 3 years. She is my everything and a very good dog. She is friendly, playful, loyal, and obedient. She loves to cuddle, fetch, and go for walks.

    However, due to some unfortunate circumstances, I am unable to take care of her anymore. I have lost my job and my father recently, and I am struggling to make ends meet. I also have some health issues that prevent me from giving her the attention and care she deserves. She has a skin disease that needs regular treatment and medication, which I cannot afford.

    I love her more than anything in the world, but I cannot see her suffer like this. I want her to have a better life with someone who can provide her with everything she needs. That is why I am asking you to please help me find a new home for her or take her under your shelter.

    I have never mated her and I don’t want anyone to do it either. She is not spayed, but she has been vaccinated and dewormed. She has no other health problems apart from the skin disease. She is very well-behaved and gets along with other dogs and people.

    Please understand that this is not an easy decision for me. It breaks my heart to give her up, but I have no other choice. I hope you can accept my request and help me out in this difficult situation.

    Please contact me if you are interested or have any questions. I will be waiting for your reply.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Sincerely, Prem

  3. The comment above from Sai Prem should be ignored. He is just a fraud, he just shows off as an animal lover and lacks basic etiquettes. First off he himself puts a comment and then starts being a miscreant. Don’t call him.
