The stray dog menace hasn’t been controlled by the Belagavi City Corporation (BCC) and it has failed in tackling the nuisance of stray dogs since more than a decade.

Now a group of animals lovers who have come under the banner of Belagaum Animal Rescue and Care (BARC) organization Belagavi has come forward to take up the challenge to provide a permanent solution to the problem without harming the dogs.

The stray dog menace can be curbed with systematic and proper methodology and the members of BARC have come forward to take up the responsibility.


Belagavi Animal Rescue and Care (BARC) organization BelagaviPresident of BARC Surya B Kulkarni said that vaccination, sterilization, and adoption can play a major role in bringing control on the menace of the stray dogs. He said that BARC has been doing activities for the welfare of animals in trouble in urban territories since last several months.

Sucheta Inamdar, Director, BARC said that the members of the organization have been engaged in doing welfare activities for the stray animals like providing medical aid to the injured and sick animals, helping people adopt them and more by spending from their own pockets.

Varun Karkhanis, Director, BARC said that awareness will be created in the society for changing the negative attitude of people about stray animals.

BARC has approached BCC to provide it more than 5 gunta land for establishing a shelter for the helpless and sick stray animals within the outskirts of city premises. That center will take care of all ill and injured stray animals. Their vaccination and sterilization will be taken care of.

Currently, as they don’t have a shelter they can only undertake care to a limited extent, but if the Corporation can allot them one place it will help them to open a complete shelter for all animals.

They are in need a Van and are looking forward to animal lovers to give a lending hand.
