​Adoptathon – an initiative by the Forum Vijaya Mall

This weekend our chennaites opened their hearts and their homes to more than 40 puppies and 10 kittens who were looking for their forever families​​​ ​during the 3rd edition of “Adoptathon” which is an initiative by The Forum Vijaya Mall in association with Blue Cross of India. For the past three years the forum Vijaya mall is associating with Blue Cross India and hosting this successful adoption drive. Through this event more than 100 of stray puppies and kittens have found a forever home they deserve.

Adopt an Indian dog and you will get everything that you’re looking for in your new family member. The bark of a Shepherd and the heart of a Saint Bernard, the spots of a Dalmatian, size of a Schnauzer and the speed of a Greyhound. An Indian mongrel has it all. We have many of them waiting for you!

There are millions of stray and homeless animals in India today. Due to severe financial and infrastructural constraints, it is impossible to individually provide shelter for all these animals. If each one of us were to adopt one stray/ homeless animal, the numbers of those without shelter would become negligible. The Adoptathon will drive the adoption of Indian mongrels only, an Indian breed of dogs that are lovable and are adaptable to our natural conditions.
