Foster Home.

My daughter in law Manjiree and her two sisters are great animal welfare activists and their homes are proof that they are. In our home we have Chutki, rescued as a pup, a victim of a hit and run accident with both her hind legs fractured who was nursed to health and normalcy by Manjiree. She was originally found and brought to us by Anjali, one of the sisters who you will get to meet later in this blog post.

In Manjiree’s maternal home there are two rescued dogs being brought up by her parents. The other sister Vandana has a home full of rescued dogs and she keeps fostering as well.

The latest in these rescue stories is a Great Dane that the girls have named as Jordan. He was found abandoned and ill about to die. Manjiree with the help of Blue Cross arranged for him to be taken from the roadside and cared for and when the Blue Cross facilities could not manage him, he was shifted to some other activist’s place to be cared for. Since that activist has other commitments, Manjiree has brought Jordan home to care for for a few days.

These are two photographs of Jordan being brought down from an upstairs flat where he was being cared for before he was brought to our place and one with him and Chutki in our home along with Anjali.


Jordan and Chutki

As I write this, it has been two nights since Jordan came home and he has slowly gained enough confidence that he will not be abused and moves freely around. Chutki on the other hand is irritated that she has competition for attention but so far no major scraps have taken place. It is a fine balancing act that all of us are having to perform to keep her in good humour!
