Dogs for adoption in India

dogs for adoption
There are too many homeless dogs for adoption. Please choose to adopt and give yourself the companionship you deserve.

So you have made up your mind to gift yourself the awesomeness that is a dog.  Now comes the tricky part when you are bombarded with the breeder ads. Trust me the marketers, e-commerce portals and pet grooming sites would do a helluva job to pique your interest in exotic breeds who don’t fare that well in India.

However, even before you begin to explore dog adoption, you must consider if you are ready for one.

Do you really want a dog? 

Well, if you ask me, yes is the answer always. But then, getting a dog is a full-time responsibility. Yes, you are going to make great furry memories but there are also little things that go under the radar –

  • Commitment – Dogs aren’t just for puppy days but for life. Are you ready to commit for 10-12 years?
  • Expenses – There would be bills – food, vaccinations, veterinary costs, etc.
  • Time – from daily walks to planning vacations, you’ll be sharing your life with them.

If you are ready for the dog and the adventures to come, please share your details below for staying updated with dog adoption updates in India.

Dog adoption in India

“I want to buy a dog” but WHY?

You didn’t buy your lover, your best friend, your spouse so why buy your best friend?

It is never the breed, but the loyal loving heart that determines how cool a dog is and every dog is a loyalist. Humans, however, need training.

Be a hero and adopt a dog!

In most cases, breeders just run it as a business with little to no regard for the dog. When you choose to not buy but adopt, you help put a stop to cruel practices like puppy mills i.e. mass breeding of puppies for profit.

Consider adopting, always!

Remember, House + Dog = Home

Another rewarding aspect of adoption is the special bond you’d develop with the rescued dog. Read from those who adopted – Opening up your heart to the homeless dog results in a close bond for life.

Be a hero to the dogs. Adopt!

Why do you want a dog?

Every other week at Dog with Blog, we get requests from people who are relocating overseas to help them find a home for their pets. As irate as it makes us, we can’t help but wonder if these people would do the same for their kids? When you get a dog, you get it for life. It may mean relocation, transfers, weddings, divorces, kids, and everything in between but must not you abandon the dog.

Adopt a pet!

If you are in one of the metros, and searching dogs to adopt – please reach out to these NGOs and shelters in Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Chennai. You may also spend time there volunteering or fostering a dog in need to understand the responsibilities that come with pet ownership.

Reconsider. Pause.

Say to yourself aloud, I am not getting a fitness app, a security guard or a babysitter but a dog. A family member. If this thought has sunk in, you are ready for a dog.

Are you getting a dog to be a fun playmate for the children, or for accompanying an older person on quiet walks? Do you want him to go jogging with you, or is he going to be guarding the house?

Is it the right time to adopt a dog?

For a homeless dog, it’s always a good time to be adopted. But don’t let him down by bringing him home, and then deciding that it’s simply not the right time for you. Dogs take lots of care and attention – and that means time – especially when they first come home. Is this the right time in your life to take on this huge commitment?

What kind of dog do you want?

This has more to do with your lifestyle and the accommodation you can provide the dog. You may come across a mastiff for adoption but, you live in an apartment with no open spaces around. Perhaps you should rather adopt a smaller dog.

Whichever dog you adopt, you need to provide him the open space, exercise, and a relatively cooler temperature. Try befriending pups or dogs near your home, believe me, it is far easier than it sounds. Who knows, you might find your best friend there.

  2. Thanks for promoting adoptions. Unlike the Indian e-commerce sites which are always biased towards breeds, it is great to read this 🙂

    PS I have adopted two Indi pups myself:)

      1. I have a rescued 2-3 month old female pup……probably a german shepherd cross. I am looking for someone with a large open space for her to play around and who has experience with such breeds (she is very energetic). Contact me if you are really serious and willing to take care of her as your own family member.
        Please note that I am in Delhi NCR region

  3. We appreciate your help in promoting dog adoption in India. Keep up the good work.

  4. I second the thoughts on getting a dog only if you are willing to add another member to your family than an instrument for entertainment. It’s sick when people would just leave them on the roadside because they either misbehaved, or are too old to be on their own, etc. Would they do that to their family members?
