Adopt a dog

My friend, Meenakshi Madhvani, adopted a couple of street dog pups a few months ago, after an sms I sent her. Tino and Cleo have enriched her life in so many ways, she feels richer than a billionaire.

Now that the Supreme Court has placed a stay on the Bombay High Court order to exterminate ownerless 'nuisance' dogs, there will plenty of pups and dogs who need homes in societies and apartments.

Here are some hoardings that Aaren Initiative will be putting up in Mumbai and Delhi over the next few days, concept courtesy Maneka Gandhi.






And for good measure, a great Pedigree film that ran with the Superbowl final this year!



In case you feel inspired to adopt a dog, here are some waiting for homes:

Sweet dogs!

The Peninsula Humane Society (in the San Francisco Bay Area) has the best commercial, which emphasizes that a dog doesn't care about the superficial characteristics of a person - just their heart. It always brings tears to my eyes.

I hope all the pups get a good home.

Hey Lynn you should see the third pup I adopted. I saw him at Sakarbai hospital and it was love at first sight! His name is Dash and he is a 2month old stray. Tino & Cleo have moved tot he farm and are having a blast running around. I plan to take them swimming in the lake over the weekend.

And if you're in Bangalore, do head to CUPA to adopt an Indian dog. CUPA is in Hebbal, and this is their website: http://www.cupabangalore.org/
