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
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
During the three months from oct to Dec 2013, a total of 3686 stray dogs and 88 cats have been sterilized, vaccinated and released. Blue Cross is continuing its work on animal birth control incessantly. A huge number of dogs and cats are also being rescued and treated. Meet Blackie, a homeless cat, who was rescued a few months back and is undergoing treatment. He has hurt both his forelegs and a surgery is planned next month to make him walk again. Blackie loves people and is cooperative with the treatment. He sits quietly by himself and loves to play with other kittens. Blackie is currently being cared for in a foster home and will return to the shelter once he has fully recovered from the surgery.
Your kind donation help these animals get a second chance. They have no one to take care of them. We are always grateful for all the donations that we receive since these help stray animals immensely.
Seventy cats in the shelter have been vaccinated against feline distempter this month. The cost of the vaccines have increased enormously. The vaccines are essential as they protect the cats from viruses. Many of our new residents are rescues from hospitals. These cats cannot be put back in the hospitals. The cats have been spayed and vaccinated. The cats that are rescued are also vaccinated before they are put back in their territory.
More than 1000 street dogs and 70 cats are being sterilized every month in the Blue Cross of India. This is besides hundreds of cats and dogs that are rescued by our ambulances every month.
