The WSD Street Dogs Of India Calendar 2015

The WSD Street Dogs of India Calendar 2015

 Souvenirs of a Different Kind… Canine Keepsakes

The Snowy Sentinel – “Undaunted by the sudden snowfall that blitzed the Nathula Pass, this brave soldier never gave up his vigil at the Indo-China border.  The sub-zero temperatures were freezing but he stood guard on his territory, unmindful of the inclement weather conditions.” – Rutu Dave




Holidays mean different things to different people.  While they, no doubt, provide a break from one’s everyday routine, they are enjoyed in varied ways. For some a holiday means catching up with family and friends, for others it could be a time to unwind in solitude, for yet others it could mean taking off to distant horizons to experience places unknown.  Whatever be the manifestation, every holiday leaves you with memories and souvenirs that last a lifetime.  


The Watchful Waif – While we went on an expedition of discovery on the area around the hills of Koyna Dam, this little puppy looked curiously at us as if to say, 'This is my territory and so it shall remain'. I managed to capture the look of total ownership and bewilderment on his face.” - Sreeya Sen

The WSD Calendar for 2015 is a collection of souvenirs of a different kind. All the pictures have been captured by dog lovers, while taking time off.  Whether they’ve been challenging the elements at our snow capped borders, or enjoying a beach vacation or simply wandering the city streets on a weekend.  Every image evokes a memory for the photographer… a memory that helps them relive the pleasure they experienced at that time. 

The Royal Ranger – This playful soul met us near the entrance of the Vijaydurg Fort in the Konkan region and proudly showed us around his little kingdom.  He led us to the highest rampart and surveyed the land that lay beneath as his own.” – Vishtasp Palkhiwalla


So come, join these Canine Keepsakes, as they take you on an incredible journey, spanning the length and breadth of our country.
The Monsoon Model – “I generally spend my weekends with my camera, roaming around Mumbai with my parents. One rainy morning, as I was strolling along Marine Drive, I chanced upon this little dog watching me curiously.  His smiling face prompted me to capture his friendliness through my roving lens.” – Rehaan Goregaoker 

About our photographers:  The images in this year’s calendar are as diverse as the people who have captured them.  Coming from varied backgrounds such as media and working professionals (Sreeya Sen, Vishtasp Palkhiwalla), blogger cum photographer and dietician cum diabetes educator (Anil Purohit, Rutu Dave), an 11 year old student (Rehaan Goregaoker) and NGO professionals (Rohan Mukerjee, Abodh Aras), these people have generously shared canine souvenirs they have brought back from their wanderings as also the memories and stories accompanying them.

This calendar would not have been possible without the support of  Direction Software Solutions

It can also be couriered to various cities outside Mumbai (check with us on the courier costs depending on the no and type). It is priced at Rs 150 each.

Street Dogs Of India - WSD Calendar 2014



You will be happy to know that the WSD Calendar 2014 - Street Dogs Of India is now available at various outlets in Mumbai. (See list below). They can also be couriered to other places in India. 





  
Cover - A pup from a village in Meghalaya

The WSD Calendar for 2014 is a compilation of images shot by various photographers, on their wanderings through the length and breadth of the country.   


January - Lovedale, Tamil Nadu


While the physical settings and cultural backdrops may differ, all the pictures essentially tell one story...the story about the people you don't see in the photographs. The people who care for the dogs, feed and shelter them, report when they are ill or injured, take them to the nearest animal welfare organisation or hospital and tend to them in the absence of one. The dogs in return shower them with love, companionship and security.



April - Pune, Maharashtra
The WSD calendar has photographs taken by four photographers: Rohan Mukerjee, Parizad Dotiwalla, Abodh Aras and Mark Aranha. Photos of street dogs from Pune, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Meghalaya, Kolkata and many other places in India have been featured!  

September - Divar, Goa

WSD has been looking after street dogs in Mumbai since 1994. We look after their health, vaccinate them against rabies and spay/neuter them so that their population is controlled in a humane manner.  There are now many animal welfare organisations that look after street dogs all over India.


November - Mumbai, Maharashtra


The calendar is available at various outlets in Mumbai. (Please see list given below). It can also be couriered to various cities outside Mumbai (check with us on the courier costs depending on the no and type). It is priced at Rs 150 (Wall and Desk) as a donation towards WSD's sterilisation, immunization and health care programmes.  To order the WSD calendar, you can also e-mail on wsdindia@gmail.com or call 64222838.

WSD Calendar - Hope 2013



 

You will be happy to know that the WSD calendar (Wall and Desk) for 2013 is now available. The theme of this year's calendar is of hope, based on the story of Asha and thus the story of each street dog and the odd cat that goes through the WSD kennels, be it for treatment, sterilisation or sheltering after abandonment.

The calendar is available at various outlets in Mumbai and Kolkata. (Please see list given below). It can also be couriered to various cities outside Mumbai (check with us on the courier costs depending on the no and type). It is priced at Rs 150 (Wall and Desk) as a donation towards WSD's sterilisation, immunization and health care programmes.  To order the WSD calendar, you can e-mail on wsdindia@gmail.com or call 64222838.

Photographs taken by Rohan Mukerjee, Parizaad Dotiwalla, Anil Purohit, , Abodh Aras & Daniela Cony.

The story of Asha – an aptly named street dog – taught all of us at WSD to never stop hoping... and loving life. We found Asha in a slum near Worli. Her face was eaten away by maggots, leaving her with  no discernible features. Even then, despite the agonising pain, she wagged her tail vigorously, as though to thank us for rescuing her!
February
The magnificent Bruno, a German Shepard, is the only abandoned pet whose original name we know. We found him tied to a pole near Crawford Market with a note from the family who abandoned him. Over the years, WSD has rescued hundreds of pets abandoned on the streets like Bruno and found good homes for them.

The spirited Asha responded very well to her treatment but the affected parts of her face grew skin without any hair. She may not have won beauty contests where the beauty is only skin deep. But her personality shone through... her loving licks and bubbly barks winning over many hearts. After a year of lighting up our lives at the WSD kennels, she was adopted by Vanessa, a WSD volunteer and dog behaviour expert, who met Asha and loved her enough to take her home. Asha now resides at one of the most coveted addresses in Mumbai. But, more importantly, she has found a place in the hearts of a wonderful family. 



Through this year's WSD calendar, which has been inspired by her, we hope to introduce you to some of the wonderful dogs in our kennels and give you a glimpse into their lives. Over the years, we at WSD have realised that each dog comes with his own destiny. Very often, we don’t know their past... whether theye were abandoned, lost, abused or born on the street and looked after by people who also don’t have a roof over their heads. But we have seen their futures unfold before our eyes.

March 
Puppy was treated by WSD as an out-patient. Pups are a rarity at WSD as we do not have a separate puppy pen. On a daily basis, WSD treats scores of such animals as out-patients – pups, kittens, dogs and cats – who are brought in by animal lovers, volunteers and poor people who care for them, all free of charge. 


Asha's success was echoed in the tales of other dogs too. But, just as many street dogs don't have stories with happy endings. Not all of them get adopted and that’s why we endeavour to make their stay with us as comfortable as possible. They adapt, they have their routines and the kennel is now their home. But it's not the same as having a real home and master. Their lives are incomplete.



September
Tripod, our three-legged cat, has a field day every day, roaming around the WSD kennels and compound. Where there is food, there is Tripod. His favourite place is a vantage point near the kitchen! Here, he is seen against the wall of the WSD kennels which bears the WSD logo painted by school children. Though we are a dog kennel, WSD does get the odd cat, which led to us starting a small cat-sterilisation programme some years ago.
Here's where you come in. Dogs so wonderfully and seamlessly fill the spaces in our lives and reward us with their unconditional love. Give them a place in your home and they’ll give you their hearts – for life. Adopt a stray dog today!

August
Candy is the reigning queen of the WSD kennels and part of our kennel reception committee. Candy just loves people and came to WSD with a mangled leg due to an accident. It had to be amputated, but nevertheless, Candy holds the distinction of being the fastest dog in the kennels!



July 
Tiger, an airport dog, thrives in human company. He is most happy when volunteers and groups from schools and colleges come to walk him. WSD has housed more than 300 dogs brought from the airport and found homes for most of them. WSD encourages volunteers to ‘Walk the Dogs’ at the WSD kennels. 



The calendar is available at various outlets in Mumbai. (Please see list given below). It can also be couriered to various cities outside Mumbai (check with us on the courier costs depending on the no and type). It is priced at Rs 150 (Wall and Desk) as a donation towards WSD's sterilisation, immunization and health care programmes.  To order the WSD calendar, you can e-mail on wsdindia@gmail.com or call 64222838.

WSD - Best Friends- Calendar 2012

You will be happy to know that the WSD calendar(Wall and Desk) for 2012 is now available. The theme of this year's calendar is Best Friends. It is a celebration of the bond that street dogs have developed with other living beings … be it other dogs, cats, and of course…people.

The calendar is available at various outlets in Mumbai. (Please see given below). It can also be couriered to various cities outside Mumbai(check with us on the courier costs depending on the no and type). It is priced at Rs 150 (Wall and Desk) as a donation towards WSD's sterilisation, immunization and health care programmes.

The WSD Calendar for 2012 is inspired by Julie from the Oval Maidan. Julie’s life truly epitomized what friendship is all about. Providing a gentle haven where the other can be relaxed and feel safe. Being together without needing to pretend. Loving another person in spite of flaws and imperfections.

Julie got along famously with the pets that came to the Oval and the strays that lived there. She did not distinguish between the pedigreed and the pariah. She embraced them all with the joie de vivre that was so characteristic of her.
 
As you flip through the pages of this calendar, you will be moved by the uplifting stories that tell of the unconditional love and devotion shared among friends (on twos and fours!)
 
So come, join the Best Friends as they sing their “Song of Friendship”
 
The photos have been taken by Rohan Mukerjee. Rohan has been a dedicated volunteer with WSD for several years. His passion for animals is clearly evident in the poignant images that have graced the pages of the current as well as all previous WSD calendars. Rohan holds a Master’s degree in Ecological Economics from the University of Edinburgh and is presently working for Samrakshan, an NGO dedicated to preserving the forests in Meghalaya. Rohan’s commitment to WSD continues with the annual trips that he religiously makes to Mumbai to shoot for the WSD calendar every year
