Chandigarh Golf Club now hosts 52 puppies as a ‘puppy free’ zone

The Chandigarh Golf Club had tied up with two NGOs six months ago to conduct a sterilisation and vaccination drive.

Some 50-odd dogs have made the Chandigarh Golf Course their home. Only recently, these furry friends were christened and the club is now maintaining their data: what they look like, area of movement on the course, a brief on their temperament and the status of their sterilisation and vaccination.

The Chandigarh Golf Club had tied up with two NGOs six months ago to conduct a sterilisation and vaccination drive. Now, the club is a ‘puppy free’ campus, with all 52 dogs, including puppies, sterilised and vaccinated. Two of the dogs have even been flown to the US for adoption with help from Reet, who runs Sewa Stray—an international NGO with roots in Chandigarh—and whose father is a member of the club.

“In December last year, the club management approached us (Peedu’s People and Sewa Stray) for systematically dealing with the problem of dog-overpopulation. The drive was stretched a little due to the Covid situation. The drive will ensure the population of stray dogs stabilises. Though the chances of a new dog entering the course are less, because dogs here are territorial, if a new dog finds its way here, they will be promptly vaccinated and sterilised,” says Inder Sandhu, the brain behind Peedu’s People, which works for the welfare of stray animals and educating school children across the tricity on how to take care of animals.
