From  February to May 2015, over 100 cats have been sterilized in Blue Cross. These months have also been hectic with many rescues and adoptions.  Two cats have had their legs amputated and are now in our shelter. We are happy to share the rescue and recovery of one brave cat, Theo.

Theo, a brown and white male cat, was rescued by Blue Cross a month ago. Theo came in with an injured foreleg and was in obvious pain. His condition seemed serious and he was referred to a private feline clinic. The veterinarians, without wasting any time, operated on him and closed his wound with a flap. Theo is now recovering in the private clinic and should be soon upon on his feet.

Since fleas are a major problem for cats, we decided to give flea medication to the cats. The cats, numbering more than one hundred, in the shelter were administered spot-on to prevent fleas.  Remember Duke, who was featured in the previous report. Duke who had fractured both his forelegs is now able to carry on his daily activities with ease and loves his pal Duo. It is a pleasure to watch both of them together

All these happy stories are possible because of your kind donations. We thank you all and hope you will continue to support us in making a difference to the lives of animals.

We want to share two remarkable stories with you. One is about Duke and the other is about Garfield.These heart-warming stories are possible due to generosity from people like you!

Duke, a two-year-old cat, was rescued by Blue Cross of India with both his forelegs fractured. He could barely move and crawled with great difficulty. He seemed to be in a lot of pain. X-rays confirmed his broken bones. Luckily, the diagnosis was encouraging. He could be treated and could walk again! Each of his broken legs had to fixed with a plate. Surgery had to be done on one leg at a time. In December 2014 his left foreleg was operated and a plate fixed. There was a lot of swelling on the operated leg but with good care the swelling soon reduced and he recovered beautifully. In January 2015 his right foreleg has been operated. He is recovering and in a month's time he will be able to walk again.

The second rescued cat is Garfield, He is a five-month-old kitten with a broken foreleg. He was scared, weak and suffering from a respiratory infection. With good care, he soon recovered from the infection and was fit for surgery. His foreleg has been amputated and now he hops all over the shelter. He loves to play by himself and is slowly socializing with the other feline mates

Blue Cross of India continues to rescue hundreds of injured or sick dogs and cats every month.The spay and neuter program continues in full swing. All this is possible because of your generous donations. Cats like Duke and Garfield are able to get a second chance due to compassionate donors like you. 

 A big thank you from Duke and Garfield and countless others!

More than 4000 dogs and 100 cats have been sterilized from July to September 2014. All this is possible with your generous donations. The monsoon in Chennai is underway and these wet months see a large increase in the number of rescues which are mainly abandoned or injured puppies and kittens. We at Blue Cross provide them shelter, medical help and food.

We would also like to share the progress of our special kitty, Bandit. It has been one year since Bandit has been fitted with prosthetic legs. She is now one happy kitty, playing, romping and being her sweet self. Another  story with a happy ending is our latest two-legged cat, Duo. He was rescued with both front legs  crushed. He has undergone treatment and his wounds have almost healed. He has been vaccinated and neutered. He will now move into his new home.

These unfortunate cats and dogs get a second chance because of the support that we have received from our well wishers. We are grateful for all your kind  and continued support.

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

Dear Donors,

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
