Requirements of Adoption and Process

No, you don’t need to pay money here like generally one purchases any pet from Crawford Market in Mumbai and other such locations who sell pets commercially. The only requirement to get the lovely pet to your home if to qualify the basic interview and screening process which this NGO takes to ensure the capability, love and capacity of the care taker. They ask about your lifestyle and questions about the family members, any past experience about pets at home, the how big is the space at your home, Location you live, your age and other few legal documents like identity and residential proof etc, Which is quite reasonable and must to make sure the little stray life is going in good hands for betterment.

Adoption agreement has to be signed after reading proper terms and understanding that this dogs and kittens are stray and they explain about the general requirement of pets and expenses that occurs extra upon adoption.

Basic Monthly Expenses Of Pet in Mumbai

Now, this is a very important factor one generally misses before adopting or purchasing a pet, although NGO’s take care of explaining details about same, still here is a small live experience of mine which has to be considered before you adopt. Follow the checklist and guidelines below :

  • Timely Animal Vaccination is a must, Starting from initial injections which saves pup from diseases and also saves the owner of pet from getting influenced by pet diseases to the most important vaccination of Rabies will cost you about approximate Rs.300 to 400 per injection.
  • Most important factor being the time you need to spend extra to take care of the pet in terms of giving bath, food and a daily hangout for about half to one hour.
  • No its not recommend to adopt a dog and then give excuse of your lifestyle saying now i don’t have time to take the puppy out for at least half hour for casual walk. This affects the pet behavior if you don’t.
  • Pet food in Mumbai is available now almost at any nearby pet shop and their are many such shops everywhere. The point here is the expenses of food like pet biscuits, daily milk and some desserts like ice creams etc should be first calculated before adoption.
  • Afford a separate pet care taker at home, or train your pet for potty (Toilet habits) as this can give you night mare for few initial months till the pup is a real big dog who understands and obey your orders.
  • If pet may take your time and you are a work from home guy, Calculate the daily time you need to give up for them. Same applies for home.
  • Check with your owner and society rules if your house is on rent before you go ahead and adopt one.
  • Are you a Vegetarian or Non Vegetarian as not all dogs like to go for Vegetarian diet.
  • Do you have a vet shop around in Mumbai location where you stay ?
  • Does any of your family members have any kind of allergies related to pet. In any case if you bring one, take care of pet hair fall and other hygiene factors.
