THE STORY OF ZOE

Zoe

Zoe was an ordinary rescued puppy, two month old female, with little hope of ever getting a family to call its own – for hardly anyone would want to adopt an orphaned Indian pup. But then fate had other plans in store for Zoe. She got adopted into a kind family but due to personal constraints her new owners could not keep her for long. When it looked almost certain that Zoe would be back at Krupa, another loving family came forward and adopted her. Now Zoe resides with her new family and is as happy as can be.

THE LUCKY LITTLE PUPPIES

Honey and Lucky (as named by their new family) were just two ordinary little orphaned puppies, rescued from the street and considered unfit for adoption by most people. Until one fine day, lady luck smiled on them and an extremely compassionate couple came all the way across the city with the sole intention of providing a caring home for homeless puppies. They had not the slightest hesitation in adopting these two orphaned pups and now Honey and Lucky are happily settled in their new home with lovely parents to care for them. May their tribe increase!

LITTLE PUPPY SEEKS HOME OF ITS OWN

Brought to Krupa Animal Hospital along with its four siblings, this
little orphaned puppy quickly adjusted to its new surroundings. It is
about 2 months old and is active and playful. It would love to have a
family and home of its own. Those interested in adopting this little
puppy can please call 9880563690 or 7829816208.

BRAVEHEART PUPPY FIGHTING TO STAY ALIVE

This is the picture of a brave little puppy, not more than 2 and a
half months old, which has been run over by a vehicle. As is evident
from the picture, its pelvic region has been severly damaged. Yet the
little puppy is fighting to stay alive. Brought to Krupa Animal
Hospital by a compassionate person who found it lying in a ditch more
dead than alive, the puppy is being administered all possible care and treatment. Seeing the little pup’s will to stay alive against all
odds, one can only hope and pray for the best.

Adopt Indian breeds

We have been getting calls from people enquiring about availability of foreign breed dogs for adoption. I have been writing time and again that we at Krupa do not entertain such attitudes. People fail to realise that most foreign breeds are not suited for Indian conditions in various ways. Hot Indian climate makes most of the dogs aggressive and unfriendly. We have seen people abandoning their dogs on the streets due to behavioural problems. You can see some of those unfortunate animals in Krupa.
Indian breeds are much suited to Indian conditions. They are well behaved, friendly and highly affectionate. They are healthy and their immunity levels are high. They rarely go sick and do not need expensive medical attention. There is no need for special and exotic foods for they love what we normally eat. And more, they are active, much more alert and better looking than some foreign breeds.
Please think about this. Except snob value, foreign dogs are no better than Indian breeds. If you wish to adopt a dog, think about our good old Indian dogs.

Krupa’s conditions for adoption:
1.We normally discourage adoption to apartment dwellers. We have seen people either return them or abandon owing to various restrictions in apartments. Only people living in independent homes may contact.
2. Krupa’s cardinal principle is that no dog will be kept leashed. Visitors here may have noticed this. We believe in the freedom of pet animals. No leash no kennels please. Genuine dog lovers will understand this.
3. Once decided to adopt pets, they are part of your family and have to be treated as such. Please contact us only if you accept this doctrine.

DOG WITH AMPUTATED LIMB

The dog in the picture was presented at Krupa Animal Hospital in a
grave condition. An accident case, it had remained neglected and
untended for several days before a good samaritan brought it to Krupa hospital. Three of its four legs were in a very bad state with one hind leg almost rotting. That leg had to be amputated. The remaining legs have been saved but they are so filled with wounds that it is going to take a long time for them to heal completely. Presently the dog is not able to get up because of acute trauma to its pelvic region.The dog is being maintained on the necessary iv fluids and antibiotics and its condition being monitored closely.

DOG WITH HUGE TUMOR IN THE RIB CAGE

20150222_195133

The dog in the picture was presented at Krupa Animal Hospital with a huge tumor extending deep into rib cage. The tumor is so entwined in to the ribs that it is not possible to remove it surgically. The dog is old as well and quite weak. It is being managed as best as possible and all efforts being made to see that it is as omfortable as possible.

Consider this:
There are thousands of street animals – dogs, cats, horses and cows – old, sick and abandoned roaming the streets. Many of them eventually attain a state of unconscious stupor and lie in a corner. They remain uncared for, for days and die in agony ‘unwept, unhonoured and unsung’. Do we have time and concern to care for these unfortunate creatures?

Yet there are a few souls who are moved by these dying animals and call us for help. The cardinal objective of KRUPA has been not only tending the sick animals but giving comfort, respect and decent treatment during the last few days for the terminally ill. Our aim is to let them leave this world with dignity and peace in an atmosphere of compassion and tearful farewell.

If you like, you may visit these sick friends and bring them cheer and comfort in their last few days in this world.
