Bhavika posted on 07 February

Ten-Second Takeaway

There’s always a puppy looking for a home, a recently abandoned cat who needs more love and a cat who has just recovered and has no place to go. If you are looking to take home a furry friend, adopt, don’t shop, and this list will take you exactly where you need to go.

Cat Cafe

Low-lying seating, tables with café and cats lazily strewn across the floor or lost in heavy sleep in between shelves of clothes. That’s the amazing Cat Café in Andheri for you, owned by cat-lovers, Mridu, Charu and Jason. They rescue cats, take care of them and you can adopt a cat from their café. They also often host cat donation camps too.

If you further want to know more about them, and be led to a page with adorable, meow-worthy cat photos, check this out.

Keep a track of those paw marks left on Facebook here for updates on adoption and some seriously sage life advice imparted by these kitties.

Youth Organisation In Defence Of Animals

YODA is a group started by 5 animal lovers who wanted to keep push away the puppy mills and ‘pure breeding’ concepts seen very commonly taken by potential pet parents. They hope that people soon just know the policy of ‘adopt, don’t shop’ when it comes to getting an animal home. Now, it is a full fledged Facebook group joined by thousands of other like-minded animal lovers. The group treats, rescues and rehomes the animals, conducting thorough background checks before adoption and also follows up after the adoption process.

If you join the Facebook group here, you will be in the know of lots of other community members posting about adoption and foster updates.
