Animal Rescue, Goa – List of numbers

Happy New Year, everybody!

The other night, Mr. R and I were on the way back from a lovely anniversary (4 years!) dinner at Le Poisson-Rouge at the Baga River when we noticed a stray dog lying on the road, surrounded by stones. We stopped and asked a shopkeeper opposite and we were told that the dog was hit by a speeding car. They had given him some water and didn’t know what else to do.

Mr. R had a number for an animal rescue organisation and we called them up. It was 11pm by then and not surprisingly, there was no response. Fortunately, the dog seemed to revive, and with a whole pack of similar looking dogs watching with great concern (along with an RAF man, gun and all) from the other side of the road, he got up and limped uncertainly into the dark.

This morning, Mr. R and I have been working on a list of rescue agents in Goa. Unfortunately, we’ve not yet found a 24 hour helpline that will pick up an injured animal.

However, if you come across a sick or injured animal, here’s where to call:

  1. The listing is a good reference point. However the link to PAWS should be removed, it does not point to the correct organisation.

    I have been searching the net, but don’t think PAWS, Panjim has an online presence.

  2. Hi,

    I tried calling your nos and could not get through,hence this note. I am from Assagao and the cat (White and black) is a regular visitor at Mrs.Maria Fernandes´s house at Bairo Alta, Assagao.
