Blue Cross of India 50th Year Rescue Fund

$3,973 $6,027
Raised Remaining

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.

The Blue Cross 50th Year Rescue Fund has got off to a fabulous start, reaching $2875 within the space of 2 months. Edward Pugh, who started the project, completed his challenge of running the Chennai marathon although it was a much bigger challenge than he had thought. With a time of 4 hours 35 minutes he was proud but exhausted!! The supporters of this campaign have helped enormously getting this fundraising project off the ground.

The funds raised so far have been going towards the everyday rescues, needed so often across Chennai. There are calls that come into the office requesting help on such a regular basis and the funds raised make it all the more possible to respond quickly and effectively.

One fine example of how the funding has helped happened on New Year's day. The Blue Cross were informed that a puppy fell into a well five days prior. The puppy was in danger of sinking into the 25 feet of water. A kind soul attempted to rescue the puppy but he was in great danger of drowning, the neighbors screamed and pulled him out. 
Through friends he informed The Blue Cross and thanks to the brave work of The Blue Cross Team the puppy was rescued and taken to the Blue Cross Shelter and hospital where it is now recovering.
The photos show this rescue and this remains one of the constant challenges faced by The Blue Cross team, and the donations from kind supporters continue to make it possible.
Edward Finishes the Marathon!
