NEW DELHI: A group of animal rights NGOs has rescued 30 puppies from outside a dog show organized by the Delhi Kennel Club on Vande Mataram Road.

People for Animals (PFA), Delhi Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (DSPCA) and the Delhi State Animal Welfare Board of India (SAWBI), along with Delhi Police, conducted a raid on Wednesday and allegedly found that most of the dogs there were starving and sick. The puppies were being sold by "illegal breeders" reportedly not registered with the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI). PFA members said the puppies were "stuffed" in cages, with each cage holding 10 to 12 of them.

The dogs rescued were also found to be suffering from pneumonia, parvovirus and gastric infections. It also seemed like they had not been fed for a long time. "I don't think they were given water either," said Sonya Ghosh of PFA.

Many pups were also too young to be separated from their mothers. "Some were passing blood in their stool which suggests they have parvovirus. Two Saint Bernard puppies were in a critical condition. They are recovering," added Sonya. The puppies rescued included breeds like Rottweiler, German Shepherds, etc.

Members of Delhi Kennel Club, however, claimed that they didn't invite any illegal breeders to the show. "We don't know how they landed there. They were selling puppies outside the venue. We are not responsible for them as we didn't invite them," said a member.
