3rd Mixed Breed Puppy & Kitten Adoption Mela - Aug 08, 2010
On Sunday, 8th August 2010 the Blue Cross Society of Pune, in collaboration with Eukanuba Pet Foods and Petsworld organized its 3rd Mixed Breed Puppy and Adoption Camp from 10am to 4pm at Mrs. Erin P, Nagarwala Primary School, Kalyaninagar. The first two camps held in January and May 2010 evoked an overwhelming response from caring citizens. Thanks to first two camps, about 150 puppies and kittens, who would otherwise have ended up on the streets, found loving homes followed by an addition of 27 dogs and 19 kittens for our third one. Blue Cross offered free sterilization and anti-rabies vaccination at susidized rate for all street dogs and mixed breed dogs adopted during the Camps. A further discount on treatment at the Blue Cross Animal Hospital at Keshavnagar was offered to those adopting female dogs.
Since eight in the morning foster families who had been caring for stray or orphaned kittens and puppies started streaming in with their furry little bundles. The seven vets, Dr.Lochana, Dr.Deepa, Dr.Vimli, Dr, Aher, Dr.Mail, Dr. Disale and Dr. Kalapure were kept busy, checking the health condition of each puppy and kitten. The foster caretakers waited patiently for adopters who started coming in around ten o’clock.
Volunteers of all ages from age ten to sixty were stationed at different desks helping the fosters and adopters to fill up forms and undertakings and to complete the formalities. Representatives of 2 television channels and several newspapers covered this unique event.
People who already owned a pet can got their pets along on Sunday for vaccination at subsidized rates. The sponsors planned fun activities for pets and their owners, and got gift hampers and discount coupons. For the convenience of pet owners, pet accessories were on sale.
