DISTANT ADOPTIONS

DISTANT ADOPTIONS

ART has up to 50 senior/blind/disabled dogs at our shelter, who have no chances of real life adoption into homes. We request you to support them by being a distant parent, and contributing to their food, medical treatment and upkeep. 

Please visit the Donate page to see how you can support us in helping these animals live a life of dignity and freedom. Our shelter is cage free and the dogs are all free roaming.

Hi, this is Siddharth Bhadauria. I'm a software engineer by profession and a hardcore traveller and content creator by passion. I love to capture moments with my camera in both stills and video format. I like to contribute to the welfare of animals as I feel humans have lost humanity and have created living hell for the poor voiceless animals.  I was honoured to be given this opportunity to capture these beautiful doggos in ART. I have taken these photos in hopes that it would help these souls find forever loving homes soon ❤️.   IG 📸 - https://www.instagram.com/siddharthbhadauria/  YouTube 📹 - https://www.youtube.com/siddharthbhadauria
