ACT to conduct I-Day adoption drive of puppies, kittens-1Mangaluru: The Animal Care Trust will be conducting an adoption drive at the Forum Fiza Mall, Mangaluru on August 15 from 2 pm to 8 pm. Animal lovers can find the kitten or puppy of their dreams at this drive. The adoption drive will have over 25 puppies and 10 Kittens of Indian breed that have been vaccinated.

While no adoption fee is charged, ACT collects a nominal amount of Rs 200 as registration fee to help cover the basic medical expenses.

The Animal Care Trust in Shakthinagar believes that every animal deserves to live its best life and has been investing in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen. Since 2000, the trust has been providing shelter and care to abandoned, sick, and stray animals. ACT Mangaluru also inspires and educates communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programmes, spay and neuter services, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. Like most shelters, the goal of Animal Care Trust is to get abandoned Indian kitten & puppy breeds out of their care & into individual homes as efficiently as possible. In this spirit, ACT has conducted several adoption camps over the past few years.

Those who wish to adopt an animal are required to provide a valid photo ID for registration. Adopting families will also be advised about taking care of a pet at home. ACT Trustee Suma Nayak said, "Being Indians, we must adopt Indian puppies and kittens. They give unconditional love and are watchful animals. They have been rescued from the streets, and now they just seek your loving company.”

Bringing home a new pet is incredibly exciting. Adopting a shelter animal not only gives the pet a second chance in a happy home but also makes room at the shelter for other animals that nowhere else to go. ACT staff make sure that animals are in good shape before they are put up for adoption.
