Your donations help us run important projects
We visit schools and villages to educate them about rabies and compassion towards animals. The goal is to have the community as our partner in caring for the street animals of Dharamsala.
We welcome local and international adoptions
Abandoned pets and stray dogs do not ask for much. All they need is another chance. DAR pets come vaccinated, neutered and ready to love FOR FREE. Why would you go anywhere else? Adopt today, gain a beautiful soul forever.
Abused or neglected on Indian streets, Desi dogs are finding loving homes in the West! These dogs are known to have a calm and gentle demeanor around them. They bond strongly with their people and make an excellent family pet that is very loving, loyal and intelligent.
Our mission is to end the human/street dog conflict by creating a humane and sustainable environment for animals with direct benefits to the people of Dharamsala, India.
We provide several key programs to achieve our goals: spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, rescue and adoption, and community education for rabies safety and compassion.
