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.
Thanks to your generous donation we are in a position to carry out renovation of the cattery. We are now able to santize and disinfect the cattery every week with effective disinfectants, We propose to replace the existing roof of the kitten shelter with a brand new soon. We have finished whitewashing and painting the cattery.All this has been possible due to your generous donation.
The cattery now houses more than 100 adult cats and about 50 kittens. Everyday, more and more kittens and cats are being added to our shelter. Kalki was abandoned with her three little kittens at the shelter in a cardboard carton. Later, Kalki was diagnosed with urinary infection and treated. She is now in foster care and will be sprayed and left in the shelter.
Your donation is giving cats like Kalki a second chance.
Spay/neuter 500 cats and dogs in Chennai project, which you have so generously supported, is happy to share the work done for the months of April and May 2013. This could not have been possible without your support! The Chennai city is on a drive to sterilize as many street dogs as possible. The veterinarians of Blue Cross of India are doing tremendous work by tirelessly operating on the dogs and providing good post-operative care. In April and May, 2714 dogs and 95 cats have been sterilized. In addition, numerous cats and dogs have been treated and released.
Snoopy, a brown and white mongrel, had a severe paw injury and was roaming in the streets with great difficulty. He was trapped after a great effort by the Blue Cross of India team. After successfully undergoing treatment, he was neutered and released. Now he is happily back on the streets.
We are grateful for your support once again. We continue to seek support to help more and more street animals.
Spay/neuter 500 cats and dogs in Chennai project, which you have so generously supported, is happy to share the work done for the month of January 2013. During January 549 dogs and 50 cats were sterilised. Blue Cross of India also runs an excellent ambulance service for rescuing injured or abandoned animals and birds. During the month of January 368 dogs and 13 cats were rescued and treated for injuries or sickness.This could not have been possible without your support!
We share with you some of the pictures taken of our animal rescue. Humane techniques are used for catching these dogs by our animal handlers. The dogs were sterilised and after recovery were returned to their habitat. We checked on them and they were making excellent progress!
Thank you for your generousity. With more donations we can sterilise more cats and dogs. Please continue to support us.
The year 2012 has been a great year for the Blue Cross of India. We had reached our goal of raising $10,000 to spay and neuter street dogs and cats in Chennai. We are very grateful to each one of you for so generously donating for this noble cause. We have sterilized more than1000 dogs and cats and we plan to sterilize another 1000 animals in 2013. Everyday we read in the news that numerous dogs in the surrounding areas of Chennai are culled. To prevent this tragedy, we need to step up our efforts to sterilize dogs and cats.
We hope 2013 will usher in a better quality of life for the animals. We will relentlessly continue our efforts to sterilize the street dogs and cats and treat sick animals. We share with you the story of Bandit, the calico cat. She was rescued with both her hind legs broken. At present, she is undergoing treatment and we hope she will be able to walk again with prosthetic legs. Numerous sick and injured dogs and cats are treated at the Blue Cross and then sterilized before putting them back on the streets. Your donation helps us help these hapless animals.
We wish you a happy 2013. Thank you for making animals happy
