Winters & Puppy season – the most lethal combination for any animal lover. Litter of puppies everywhere, extreme cold, sometimes stormy nights and thundershowers, taking the lives of those street dogs who are weak, and definitely the lives of the puppies drowning in the drains where they are born.
Margarita, a kind animal lover was faced with a similiar situation, and writes about a mommy dog and her litter:
Chameli (mother) is one of the strays in my neighborhood, she is being fed by one kind-hearted security guard in my area. Chameli is among the smartest and sweetest dogs I have met, and she is a great guard. Above all she is beauitful, and must even have some blood from a red/ brown Doberman. Unfortunately, the guard cannot take her due to his economic state, he lives in a rented place with his big family, and I cannot adopt her as I am on a temporary basis in India and staying at a guesthouse. Eventually I discovered that Chameli has puppies hidden somewhere underground, but due to flooding and waste water staying there, the guards relocated the five pups to the little space underneath the security guard’s booth at the gate entrance and covered it with carton and stones to prevent the puppies from running out and getting hit by a car. But that eventually happened, as the guard’s booth is located just a meter away from a very busy road, and one puppy was killed. I took two females to the adoption center (as the two males were supposed to be adopted through the guard), one of them ended up being adopted twice but both times she was returned because she “turned out to be just an Indian dog” and because she got a stomach infection and nobody wanted to go through the trouble of taking her to a vet. The same thing happened to the males, one was returned the next day due to his health condition and the second one never went to his new home, as was planned before. Thus the puppies had two options – being run over by a car or staying in a tiny dark space filled with excrements. For now I am keeping the females in my office, they are being treated and seem to be feeling better already, and the males should be taken to a small shelter as a temporary solution and undergo treatment.
