At 3C (Canine Control and Care) our mission is to spay / neuter stray dogs and cats with your help and to encourage you to adopt a homeless pet.Call Us: +91 91-30-002536/7
Canine Control & Care (3C) is a charitable trust started in Feb 2015. We sterilize and vaccinate stray dogs and cats, brought to us by volunteers and caregivers, free of cost. Our Mission is to reach manageable, controllable levels of stray canine population through spaying and neutering. We also aim to make the cities a safer place by vaccinating the stray dogs against rabies.
Animals are at the heart of everything we do. Each year, thousands of volunteers join 3C and connect us with different organisations, animal hospitals and rehoming services for stray dogs / cats in Pune. So that street animals can get required treatment and find homes they deserve. If you look after/feed any stray canines in your locality please bring them to us for free sterilization.
We also vaccinate operated dogs aganist rabies and provide post-operative care.View More

The only tried and tested humane solution to the fast-growing stray dog and cat population is Sterilisation and Vaccination against Rabies.View More
A Neutering and vaccination program, alongside waste management, is the ‘only scientifically proven method’ in reducing the stray dog population and eradicating rabies. Street dogs are what are called ‘scavengers’ which means they survive off of human leftovers. Dogs have been coexisting with humans in the form of ‘community’ or ‘street dogs’ for over 10,000 years.
A well organised neutering program along with good waste management is the most effective solution.

“The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.”
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the ‘Universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.” – Albert Einstein
At 3C, we believe we can all show compassion for all living creatures.
It is our constant endeavor to ensure that there is a continuous increase in the number of Animal Birth Control surgeries for stray dogs and cats.
3C has sterilized over 6000 dogs and cats since we began our operations in 2015.
We have recently added 40 new kennels to our facility at Home on the Hill, Bhugaon.
We now have 65 kennels dedicated to providing post-operative care for Animal Birth Control Surgeries performed at HOTH.
We thank you for your involvement in our cause.
Your support will make a huge difference to the animals in need.

What is sterilizing?
Neutering is the process whereby pets are surgically prevented from reproducing. In males the operation involved is termed ‘castration’; in females it is called ‘spaying’. Both of these operations are performed under general anesthetic.
When a male animal is castrated both testicles are removed, which takes away the main source of the male hormone testosterone. As the testosterone levels fall to a minimal level after castration, the effects of this hormone are also reduced.
When a female animal is spayed both the ovaries and the uterus (womb) are removed (ovariohysterectomy). This means that the animal is unable to become pregnant, and will no longer come into season.
Benefits of Sterilization
The benefits to be gained from organised and extensive sterilisation of Cats & Dogs are listed below.
● Fewer unwanted litters. The animals can no longer breed and multiply, thereby the stray animal population eventually decreases.
● Less nuisance behavior.Sterilising animals eliminates the desire to find a mate. This means fewer animals wandering into traffic; chasing or biting people or their pets while protecting a litter; or unwittingly spreading pests and disease. A cleaner, happier and healthier environment for us all.
● Less fighting. Fights over territorial boundaries are common where sources of food and shelter are limited. With fewer litters being born, competition for food and shelter is lessened and there is an overall improvement in quality of life for the animal.
● Improved Health. Repeated pregnancy takes a toll on the female body, with animals reproducing each season experiencing a reduction in general health. Spaying females reduces the incidence of breast cancer, eliminates the risk of ovarian cancer and uterine infections, and sexually transmitted diseases (such as venereal tumors).
● Improved demeanor. Problems with territorial or sexual aggression in male dogs can be partly managed by neutering, which also eliminates the risk of testicular cancer and greatly reduces the chance of contracting sexually transmitted diseases.
● Stabilisation of numbers. As dogs are territorial by nature, returning sterilised dogs to their own territory prevents other dogs ‘moving in’.
● Less injury. Tom cats (unsterilised males) are known to ‘rape’ female cats, and do not discriminate between sterilised and unsterilised females. Toms can inflict serious and painful injuries to female cats.
●Cleaner environments. Tom cats are notorious for indiscriminate ‘spraying’ of scent, which is generally offensive to most people. Neutering virtually eliminates the offensive scent.
● Preserving native species. Domestic cats and dogs are introduced species in urban environments. Many populations of native species of animal, birds and reptiles are compromised by stray animals either by becoming prey or from loss of habitat/food source.
Post operation care:
No dogs should be released the same day or even the next. There must be a minimum of a 4-day period for healing as the stitches are painful and painkillers should be given as well as long acting antibiotics. When dogs are brought in for sterilization, the diseased and injured dogs should be identified and post recovery should be taken to the post-operative rooms for care. The healthy dogs must be released in the EXACT same place that they have been picked up from. All dogs should be vaccinated and ear marked. Before release each dog should get an ivomectin injection, which heals and prevents skin disease. If the animal has skin disease or any other complication it can be kept for a longer time. No dogs should be picked up with tongs. Tagging should be done of each dog with a plastic collar and number so that no animals are put in the wrong places. This is the main reason why programs go wrong.
Will pet’s personality change after sterilization?
No, but some unwanted behaviors may be reduced, such as roaming, mounting, fighting or urine spraying.
What about the risks of surgery?
Every surgical procedure carries a small degree of risk, but modern anesthetic and surgical techniques are very safe. The risks, both short and long term, from not neutering stray pet – from cancers, fighting, road accidents and unwanted pregnancies – are greater than those associated with neutering.
Isn’t it painful?
All surgical procedures involve a degree of discomfort, but neutering is carried out under a full general anesthetic and animals are given drugs to control any discomfort afterwards. Most animals are up and about just a few hours after the surgery.
