a community & field organization based out Kolkata, India that works for street animal welfare -- to do everything we can to care for our “community dogs”.
Founded in 2014, LIKE A DOG has since then expanded to provide various kinds of care for stray animals in and around Kolkata, India. Over the last two years, LIKE A DOG has run numerous sterilisation programmes, vaccination drives and provided emergency care to stray dogs and cats. Early in 2016, we decided to focus on ‘anti-rabies’ as one of our major areas and have successfully administered over 1,500 anti-rabies shots around the city.
Around the world, dogs are brutally culled in a misguided attempt to stop the spread of rabies.
Millions of dogs are cruelly culled every year in attempt to control the amount of strays on the streets.
ELIMINATING RABIES DOES NOT MEAN ELIMINATING DOGS
Through mass dog vaccination, we will protect both dogs and people from this killer disease.
Address the source of the stray dog population, rather than culling as a means of population control. And conduct sterilisation drives to create a healthy population.
Vaccinating populations around the city and tracking our work through “StreetDogs”
Proving that each vaccinated dog is protected from rabies – either with a collar, non-toxic marker or a vaccination card
Advising communities to manage their stray dogs humanely – instead of using cruel culls.
