Till 2013, The Chief Human of Doggysthan, was a city dweller. During 34 years of Corporate life, where he did not make many friends, he used to sit on the pavements and chit chat with the stray dogs. These mutts gave him not just a listening ear, but also a lot of affection. Therein began a yearning. He knew he cannot save all the dogs in the world. But how about just a few dogs, with his own resources? How about some empty space in the wilderness, where these dogs can roam about, well fed and well taken care of. One fine day in 2014, he decided that enough is enough and moved quietly to the suburbs of Bangalore.

After some amount of searching, he finally managed to find a quiet spot in Arakere Village off Rajankunte, to start his dream project. A farm for dogs! A City for dogs, if you can call it that. A sanctuary for dogs. The idea was to pick up pups off the roads, give them a healthy life. That it. Besides harvesting their love and affection.

Hence the vision unfolds…


-Resident of Vancouver Canada.

-Lover of animals, dogs in particular.

Visits India once a year and spends most of the time at Doggysthan. The Dogs pile on to her like a lost mother and she dives into them like… well a mother lost. Perfect match.




Parvathi Thampi

– A resident of Pittsburgh USA.

She is a keen enthusiast. Keeps track of the dogs every day. Claims that all the dogs are hers. The Dogs genuinely do not give a darn.





– The Grandmother. A reluctant convert (used to fear dogs earlier) to dogs, now she is now the Grandmother of all dogs.

She is an ardent Dog lover. Never has an unkind word for any of the mutts, though they have torn several dresses beyond repair and always muddy her outfit with their dirty paws. The mutts adore her with a devotion that needs to be seen to be believed.




– The Man (The In-Human according to the dogs, as he removes the poop that the mutts have placed strategically across several locations within Doggysthan) who maintains the farm. The dogs are generally pissed off with him and have accepted the poop challenge, not very by trying to cover up or hide their poop with mud and dirt. They have now come to accept him as some kind of necessary evil and a few of the dogs happily part with their poop as a sign of respect. Shekhar, who is more of a Gardner, doubles up as the Maître de, for the dogs when the Chief Human is away. Shekhar is one of the doggos’ favorite humans and their nanny. He receives a raucous welcome from them and he provides them with care, comfort and even adhoc baths while he waters the plants. Shekhar feeds the doggos while the other humans are away and is an integral part to keeping doggysthan up and running.)
