Most of the dogs were brought in because they are sick or have met with an accident. Some dogs were abandoned by breeders after they were of no use to them. A few were left by their previous caregivers for unknown reasons. Every dog at Sarvoham shelter is vaccinated, dewormed and undergoes regular health check ups.
What happens if I have problems after bringing the pet home?
Usually, the dog will take 3-6 weeks to get to know you and settle down in the new environment. It is recommended that you take this time to make your pet comfortable with the surroundings and give them time to adjust to this change. This can be challenging at times, and being patient and understanding your dog's needs will help. Please consult the adoption counselor for any advice.
