Our Story

We at Canine Control and Care (CCC) think that each and every stray dog (or cat) should have the opportunity to live a long, healthy life without fear of pain, suffering, cruelty, or neglect. Our core belief is that stray dog population management should be humane and ethical, minimizing harm and maximizing benefits for the dogs involved as well as the human communities. A well-run program will result in improved stray dog welfare over their lifetime and reduce the human-animal conflict over time, as neutered and vaccinated dogs are no threat to society.

We promote compassion and cooperation; we think there is strength in kindness and community, and by coming together to work toward a common objective, we can make the world a better, kinder place.

Our long-term objectives are:

  • Ongoing and targeted sterilisation programs that will reduce the number of stray dogs in Pune city over a period of time.
  • Protecting stray dogs from deadly diseases like rabies with the anti-rabies vaccination will result in improved quality of life for stray dogs in Pune and reduce the risk of rabies for humans.

Canine Control and Care (CCC), a charitable trust registered under the Bombay Charitable Trust Act 1950 with the registration number E 6964 (Pune) was established on September 30, 2015, with the primary objective of reducing the number of stray dogs and cats in Pune by sterilising and immunising them against rabies.
