We at Kartavyam encourage people to care for and rescue street animals, and we provide free treatment to animals brought in from the street to be treated. Individuals who cannot provide to pay for veterinarian care for their creatures are also given free medication. Kartavyam provides blankets, food at shelters for animals in need. 20-25 such charity cases are treated every day. We offer free training and internship opportunities to students who are willing to contribute to the welfare of society and animals. In the past, we have organized webinars and debate competitions on subjects like avian medicine and fracture wounds, conducted by foreign veterinarian specialists. We acknowledge each and all the animals regardless of their type that need help. It does not set a threshold on the number of animals it is ready to abode, nor does it euthanize animals on account of the so-called constraints of space.

While it is an NGO, it will and does euthanize animals that are in extreme pain and beyond recovery.

Kartavyam regularly conducts animal welfare workshops and awareness talks under its humane education programs at schools and colleges. The objective of our curriculums is to sow seeds of compassion towards individuals, benevolence towards animals, and regard for the environment. Merely put, our curriculum validates the way youngsters could be considerate and compassionate in the direction of people and animals that may be in pain and in need of help. Our programs inspire them to take that first step forward to offer a helping hand.




How children need to be susceptible to the agony that animals on the street feel when they have been hit or run over by a racing car. They are rendered cognizant of how they could step ahead with kindness to treat and save such animals.

How youngsters need to be grateful for the significance of the principles of green living by being affectionate for the environment. Youngsters have been exhorted to inculcate the following routines that would hopefully stick with them for the rest of their lives:

  • Keep their neighborhood parks, lakes, and rivers clean.
  • Avoid using plastic bags.
  • Appreciate the principle of recycling, reuse, and reduce waste.
  • Not to dump garbage in parking lots or in parks but only at specified places.
  • Not to throw a banana, orange peels, and wrappers from a moving car.
  • To turn off lights in empty rooms to save on energy.
  • Not to squash insects like ants, grasshoppers, etc. as these living animals too are part of our humankind and we human beings are their custodians.

For instance, you're driving your car and you see a canine on the side of the road. With a plummeting sentiment, you realize they are lonely. What should you do? This is a wrenching consequence for all who care about creatures. After all, what if your own domestic animal were standing there? Use our strategies for offering safe and effective help.


We here at Kartavyam encourage the adoption of stray animals rather than buying pets. We spread awareness via social media, networks, word of mouth, posters, webinars, and competitions.

Indie dogs are adorable. But most dog lovers are hesitant to take them in as they don’t know how to adopt a stray dog.

Many believe that adopting street dogs is difficult as they can’t be house-trained. However, these dogs are highly adaptive and make excellent pets.






A lot of people in India are now melting up to the notion of community dogs — dogs that be homeless but are cared for by the locality. Walking off with one can upset a lot of people so make sure that the dog is a stray. You could also check local Facebook groups to ensure it’s not a lost dog.




Not all dogs are suitable for life indoors. Adopt street dogs that are friendly and sociable or when they are puppies.

If the dog displays aggressive behavior or is a part of an existing pack, it is most likely comfortable with its life on the streets and wouldn’t do well as a house pet.




Interact with the dog or puppy regularly. This bit on how to adopt a stray dog needs a lot of patience. Leave food for the dog and back away, squat at his level when interacting, face sideways when in close proximity — these actions help build trust for the dog. If it starts sniffing you, makes eye contact, or displays friendly body language pat him on the shoulders and chest and move on to the head over time. Repeat these activities regularly and before you know it, you’ve adopted a street dog!




Indie dogs are hardy and are more resistant to diseases than pedigrees, but they still need regular medical attention. Unknown medical history, malnourishment, and common diseases like tick fever, mange, etc. should be looked into and dealt with quickly.

If you’re adopting a puppy, remember that they shouldn’t be separated from their mother until they are 8 – 12 weeks old.




Older dogs that have been on the street for a while and puppies adopted from a pack will display a tendency to go outdoors regularly.

Set up a space for sleep, play, and hanging out. Then introduce the dog to your home and let him explore. Also, stock up on supplies like food and water bowls, collar or leash, brushes, soap, shampoo, toys, and treats as well as a bed with blankets.




Adopted stray dogs will take a while to adapt indoors. Gently and consistently reinforce a routine — take him for walks, provide meals at regular times, put him on the leash for short durations.

Indie dogs are highly active and need tons of exercise, so make sure he has plenty of walks, stimulation, and off-leash time.




Indie dogs are highly intelligent with a strong independent streak. Training them might be more challenging than pedigree dogs. Stick to the basics such as potty training, sitting, stay, etc.

Enforce basic discipline when training street dogs before moving on to tricks like a handshake, rolling over, etc. With enough time and trust, your indie dog will be able to adapt.

If you still face challenges on how to adopt a stray dog, consult a canine behaviorist to help you out. Remember that some dogs behave the way they do because of what they’ve been through, just like you and me.


With time and patience, you will be able to develop a lasting bond with your indie dog.

So, we promote this guide at Kartavyam and spread it for the betterment of please who want to help strays.




We here at Kartavyam welcome strays with open arms. We connect with the local authorities to provide them with empty spaces which are not used to convert them into animal shelters and make a home for them.

We also make people aware of how to help animals:




You can't help an animal if you become injured in the process. Look in your rear-view mirror before braking, turn on your signal, pull your car completely off the road, turn off the ignition, set the parking brake, and put on the hazard lights. If you have emergency flares, prepare to use them.




A strange, frightened, and possibly sick or injured animal can behave unpredictably. A sudden move on your part, even opening your car door, can spook them and cause them to bolt—possibly right onto the highway. If the animal looks or acts threatening, or if you feel uneasy about the situation, stay in your car.

If possible, restrain the animal. Create a barrier or use a carrier, leash, piece of cloth, or length of rope to keep the animal in the area. Signal approaching vehicles to slow down if you cannot confine the animal or divert traffic around them if they appear to be injured and is still on the roadway.




Use caution when approaching the animal. Should you succeed in getting close enough to capture them, you stand a good chance of being scratched or bitten. When moving toward the animal, speak calmly to reassure them. Make sure they can see you at all times as you approach, and perhaps entice them to come to you by offering strong-smelling food such as canned tuna or dried liver.

Lure them into your car If you are certain you can get help from animal control very soon, try to lure the animal into your car with food, close the door and wait for help. In most cases it isn't a good idea to attempt to drive somewhere with a strange dog unrestrained in your car; they may become frantic or aggressive. Cats may do the same, as well as lodge themselves under the car seat, and it can be dangerous trying to extract them.




If you're not able to safely restrain the animal, call the local animal control agency (in rural areas, call the police). Do so whether or not the animal is injured, and whether or not they are wearing an identification tag. Leave your phone number with the dispatcher and try to get an estimate of how long it may take someone to respond. If possible, stay on the scene to keep an eye on the dog or cat until help arrives. Make sure you report to authorities precisely where the animal is by using road names, mile markers or landmarks.
