ABC Programme

ABC Programme

ACGS follows a very strict and rigorous ABC (Animal Birth Control) programme developed by WHO as the only practical solution to control the street dog population and eradicate rabies Dogs and cats are spay-neutered and male herbivores are castrated. ACGS expanded its own campus ABC program to include the village dogs, by adopting one village at a time. We have neutered and spayed most of the dogs in a radius of 5 km. Unfortunately, because of lack of resources and infrastructure, we had to discontinue this programme. The villagers are asking us to restart the programme, for which we would like to raise funds.

The Farm

The Farm

As part of ACGS’s commitment to the environment and organic food, we have an area with raised at the sanctuary and a farm at a short distance from the sanctuary. The raised beds allow for a yield increase of almost 100% for our vegetables. At the farm, we produce organic green fodder for our herbivores. We have our own organic seed-bank, compost all of our waste and train volunteers in organic farming. In addition, we have completed the construction of an irrigation based water management system which has been in use since October 2017.

Our Emus

Our Emus

The emu farming experiment in India ended in a disaster with lakhs of birds being abandoned and left to fend for themselves. A handful of these birds now live in ACGS with a large emu run. Some of them actually come up to you and fearlessly snuggle. They are lovely, intelligent birds.
Chintu

Chintu

Chintu, the sweetest little spitz-mix boy came to ACGS trailing a horror story behind him. He was rescued from an owner who tortured him so much. Apparently, he had burnt his ears with cigarettes and made a hole in it which then became infected, full of maggots. Today, the ear has healed and Chintu is a happy baby. He has been neutered and vaccinated.
