Over the last few months, cats rescued from hospitals, offices and gypsies have been trickling into the shelter on a regular basis. Fifteen cats were apprehended from gypsies and brought to the shelter. They have been spayed and are now with other cats in the cattery. On an average, every week 2-3 cats are abandoned. This puts a strain on our already stretched budget. Thanks to your donations, we were able to take in the cats, spay, feed and care for them.
A special mention is being made of "Mousey", a one-year-old female cat who was abandoned by her owner. She later developed a bacterial infection which led to her face becoming swollen. She was treated successfully for the infection and is now recovering from the minor surgery. Every cat has a happy tale but all this cannot be possible without your support.
We are grateful for your donations and look forward to your continued support
The last three months have been hectic with numerous rescues and stertilization. The hot summer months are upon us and we are hard at work in making the difficult months pleasant for the animals. In this report, I would like to mention two remarkable rescues.Blackie and MJ are two cats rescued by the Blue Cross of India. Blackie lost his right paw and his left foreleg was also badly crushed. MJ's foreleg was hurt badly and he was dragging it.
The cats were fostered and treated. MJ was also diagnosed with a respiratory disease. The infection was first treated and then his leg was amputated. Now he is back in the Blue Cross shelter and is among several amputees. Blackie treatment and rehabilitation is a prolonged process. His leg has been operated upon and a fixator fastened. He needs cage rest for 3 months. His open wound is healed well and now he is on the road to recovery. Blackie is very sweet natured and never complains that he is in a cage.
These lovely cats have a second chance due to your kind donations. We hope we can continue treating these remarkable animals with the help of your donations.
We are grateful for your help
Over the last 3 months, The Blue Cross of India have continued their amazing efforts out on the streets, in the fields and backwaters of India. The rescues that Dawn and his team carry out, with the help of the funds raised from this campaign, are still so vital. Whether they are rescuing kittens that have fallen down wells or cobras from fields set ablaze, the work is done professionally and compassionately, always searching for a home for the rescued animals, be it at the shelter or elsewhere.
Kind and generous gifts are still coming in to help support this vital rescue work and the team at Blue Cross and myself thank everyone, from the bottom of our hearts, for choosing to get involved.
We appreciate any gift and especially encourage anybody wanting to begin a fundraising event or challenge that can help provide for the thousands of dogs, cats and animals rescued and homed at The blue Cross of India. May you all be well and our thanks to you.
