in 2015 VOSD started thinking of a way in which folks who are connected to dogs, and those who are not, come to a place and an experience that is the opposite of dog rescue with its imagery of crippled dying dogs. So we decided to go the other end of the spectrum – stand-up comedy! In the process, we’ve created India’s largest standup-up series for charity. Barking Mad has had 13 sold out shows headlined by India’s absolutely best standup talent – they are not just stellar artists but gracious enough to support VOSD. These have included Radhika Vaz (Mumbai), Neeti Palta (Delhi), Naveen Richard (Mumbai), Sundeep Rao(Bangalore), Praveen Kumar (Bangalore), Sanjay Manaktala (Bangalore), supported by a legion of assorted comic geniuses including Kritarth Srinivasan, Satish Perumal, Vamsidhar Bhogaraju, Kjeld Sreshth, Shrirupa Sengupta, Shunky Chugani and many others. Forthcoming artists include Boman Irani, Vir Das & Kenny Sebastian.
What better to support a great cause than great music? VOSD is supported by fantastic music talent right from the start in aid of dogs that we rescue. Lagori (Bangalore) and Junkyard Groove (Chennai) have played in Bangalore for us and a list of exciting acts are lined up.
The VOSD Monster Bake started 2 years ago in Bangalore and is already the largest charity bake sale property in India today. Monster Bake is a way of supporting VOSD which in 3 years of operation has grown to be the world’s largest no-kill dog sanctuary and rescue with 750+ resident dogs, with 7000+ rescues, and 250,000+ delivered treatments. The Monster Bake brings together volunteer organizers, donor patisseries & bakers and sales volunteers to generate funds and awareness for VOSD. Patisseries that support Monster Bake include large patisseries such Ganache from The Ritz Carlton Bangalore, Fava, Caperberry, Amande, Lavonne and boutique bakers such as Ovenderful, Battered Up, Konfection Konnection. The bake sales were earlier simply called the VOSD Bake Sales but were soon branded as The Monster Bake, with its own distinctive logo and branding to be able to communicate the distinctive model, experience and sheer size of each sale. Over the last 2 years, 14 Monster Bakes have been held on MG Road, Whitefield, and HAL Airport Road. Each sale averages a thousand cupcakes in a single day, in addition to other Monster Bake and VOSD merchandise.
