World for all Adoptathon 2014 & Zelda

The “World For All Animal Care & Adoptions is a registered Mumbai-based animal welfare NGO that has revolutionised the model of stray animal adoptions.” They held an event on November 22 & 23rd at the Smt. Chandaben Mohanbhai Patel Homoeopathic Medical College, Irla, Vile Parle where baby cats and dogs who have been abandoned or are strays were up for adoption.

It was quite the scene entering the venue, there were many people walking around, a great selection of puppies and cats and best of all the happy mood that everyone was in.

I was in the lookout for adopting a puppy for months now and could not make my mind, however being at the adoptathon just made me take a decision and take a lovely female pariah dog puppy. Her original name was Snowy but she is just 2 months of age and will not remember – so I have taken advantage of the situation and named her Zelda. – The name comes after a princess in the popular video game by Nintendo – Zelda & the Ocarina of Time – A princess who does not give up hope on a warrior who is to struggle to find his bravory, courage and determination to save the world from all evil.

So Zelda had nothing done on her – meaning no vaccinations, she was just up for adoption and was taken care by a very nice appearing girl named Shruti. (she was nice) – so I knew she had been safe for those few weeks of her life.

Zelda now is living with me in a flat in Khar, where she has her own play crate 4×5 size – so that she can understand the boundaries and limits of her reach – commonly known as crate training. I took her to the vet to get her checked and she is too young to get any shots! – weighing at 4.4kg this week, she will have to wait for 2 more weeks to get the shot – after which, I will finally be able to take her for walks and train her to not crap and piss all over the house :/

In the time being – I leave you with some instagram shots where you can see she is doing just fine! – probably living a better life than me!! I cook for her, brown rice with veggies and meat, all stirred in with an egg – probably a more complete meal than mine.. but she loves it, although she sniffs out the meat and leaves the rice behind haha.

She is definitely a cutie and I am glad to have her as my life companion.
