Our society does not put enough effort to understand and treat them well. Barking tale is an initiative to rescue stray dogs.

This workshop seeks to create awareness and teach us how to be more mindful. Veterinaries will also share experiences and information on animal support and well being. It will be a great learning process for the people.

Meet Ups

Meet ups mainly gathers likeminded folks in the same site. We also conduct meet ups like, The Barking Tale gather to which people can attend from different locations around the globe to create polices, Most revolve around presentations, discussions, or demos to help spread expertise, knowledge, and stray dogs awareness lessons learned to others in the group. It’s important that we share and teach others about stray dogs and their rescue in our meet ups. Because a voice of a few sometimes can’t be heard until it’s a voice of the many.

Community Programs

Adoption

Which child does not love pets? There are many children who enjoy playing with pets. Even adults enjoy the company of pets. They’re cute, reliable and even help us battle depression and loneliness. They have feelings of their own, so we shouldn’t ignore them even if they’re street dogs and/or Indian breed dogs. Ponder about that. You need the company of a dog more than the breed associated with it. Adopt a dog today.

Animal Birth Control Programs

The population of street dogs is increasing and more street dogs end up living and dying on the streets than ever. Only some manage to find animal shelters and/or get adopted by individuals. When such is the case, neutering street dogs seems to be the solution. That way, we can control the population of the street dogs and ensure maximum care to the surviving dogs.

Adopting Street Dogs

Children love pets and they will enjoy with pets. We help homeless dogs find loving homes and caring families. No street dog should ever feel left out. They too have feelings and deserve our love, care and attention.

Vaccination Camps

If we vaccinate street dogs, we can ensure they live healthier lives than before. Not just that, we can prevent rabies too. This is a win-win situation, where the street dogs as well as humans will be safer from rabies and such other diseases. In any case, many street dogs are either ill, injured or ignored. If those ill and injured dogs are vaccinated, wouldn’t that be great? Talking about the ignored dogs, they can be adopted by individuals or shelter homes.

Humane Education

While it is taught in school how to read and write, and subjects such as language, maths, science, etc is taught, children aren’t taught about real world problems and their possible solutions. Animal cruelty, pollution, global warming, etc aren’t really introduced to kids early in life. Hence, there’s a tendency that people, as they grow up, may not know about one or more real life problems and think of their possible solutions.
Humane Education means being compassionate towards all life forms, the planet and nature. We encourage this so that people are more caring towards street dogs and adopt/help them.

Vet Training and Education

We emphasize on training and education for veterinary doctors and nurses so that they can treat ill, ignored and injured street dogs. Such training is absolutely essential so that street dogs that are ill or injured can be well tended for, while ignored street dogs can be given the care they deserve. A street dogs health can also be well taken care of.

Mobile Dispensary

A mobile dispensary means a van in which a veterinary doctor (for the street dog) and one nurse is on duty and medicines are kept. We can, thus ensure any injured dog or ill dog on the street can be tended for if the mobile dispensary is within vicinity.

Awareness Programs

We try to bring awareness into the minds of people, who otherwise are misinformed about street dogs and their plight. Only when the mind of humans is fully aware will they see the street dogs in better light. Indian breeds are slowly dying out, and foreign breeds could be struggling to live in a climate which they’re originally not adapted to live in, but Indians fancy foreign breeds more that ingenious reeds. This mindset is wrong. Even ingenious breeds deserve equal love, care and attention.

Rabies Free India

Dogs are not the only source of rabies. Rabies come from many strays such as cats, bats, raccoons and other wild creatures. However, the major cause of rabies deaths in many countries is dogs. When a rabies infected street dog bites, the person gets infected by rabies. Some symptoms of rabies, although not sudden appearance, are hydrophobia, aerophobia, lots of fever, and so on.
As soon as a dog bites you, clean the wound and immediately consult your doctor without fail. We are trying to free India from the clutches of Rabies by ensuring that street dogs don’t carry the rabies virus around. We will obviously need your support.

Rescue Ambulance

A rescue ambulance is purely meant to rescue street dogs. If any street dog is found to be ill or injured, it will be rescued and taken away for help and treatment. Today, many street dogs suffer silently and even die on the streets, due to injuries and illnesses. Such poor dogs can be rescued. All rescued street dogs can be given food, care, rest and shelter. More often, they can be given love and care, for they deserve it.

Rescue Centres and Rehabilitation Hospitals

We have trained specialists and volunteers so as to rescue injured, ill and/or ignored street dogs on spot, give medical treatment to ailing dogs and hurt dogs, and provide food and shelter to dogs. Doing this prevents a good number of people getting rabies as well as the street dogs not getting killed due to being ignored, ill or injured.

Spay and Neuter

As the population of street dogs rises, there will be more ignored dogs lying on the streets and more rabies deaths (humans). Instead, we can spay or neuter the street dogs so that they don’t mate (fight one another for mating) and will be lesser aggressive. By controlling the population, we can ensure the surviving dogs get cared for, given proper food and medicine and there will be a reduction in dog wars.

Sterilization and Vaccination

Dogs fight one another for territory, mating partners, food and so on. They get injured, some get sick while others are starving due to limited food. With all this, there’s a rise in street dog population which is not good for the dogs and the society as the chances of rabies deaths in humans can also increase. If we sterilize such dogs, they will no longer be as aggressive, and by controlling street dog population, we can make sure the surviving dogs get enough care, attention, medicine and food. Vaccinating them will also ensure a healthier life comparatively.

Shelter Homes

There is no dearth of street dogs in India, and by extension, Asia and Africa too. They spend their lives on the streets for a major portion. Shelter homes are meant for such dogs to ensure they don’t have to live and die on the streets neglected. They need love, care, food, shelter and rest, just like they deserve. We help with that.
