September and October 2020 Update on Sanctuary Animals

Helen - Hurt to Healed!
Helen - Hurt to Healed!

September and October were remarkable months where many animals were rescued, healed and rehabilitated. During these two months, we accomplished several life-saving surgeries and conducted several vaccination drives against the backdrop of the World Rabies Day. We are grateful for the unstinting support from each one of you!

Our spay/neuter surgeries continued unabated and several pets found their forever homes and loving families. Two of the remarkable "hurt to healed" rescue stories are that of Helen and Summer. Thanks to donors like yourself, we were able to perform life-saving surgeries at the time they needed it most, making all the difference in their lives. They are now completely healed and waiting eagerly for their forever homes.

The World Rabies Day that falls on the 28th of September every year to raise awareness about Rabies and bring together partners to enhance prevention and control efforts was given wide publicity ahead of schedule. Embracing the twin themes of "Vaccinate to Eliminate" and "Educate to Eliminate", several hundreds of pet and community companion animals were vaccinated against Rabies. Several volunteers conducted door-to-door campaign to share the message about Rabies prevention and the importance of vaccinating pet and community animals.

As little as $2 will cover the cost of one Anti-Rabies Vaccination and an equivalent of $15 will cover one spay/neuter surgery while a $50 will sponsor a rescued pet for a whole month including vaccination and sterilization.

It's only because of your generous donations that we are able to carry on the life-saving work of caring for the voiceless. Please continue to support us!

July and August 2020 Update for the Sanctuary Pets

July and August were two months where we accomplished several life-saving surgeries and conducted couple of vaccination drives against Rabies too. These two months also witnessed several successful adoptions of rescued pets. These have all been made possible only by your incredible support.

We reaped the benefits of encouraging and empowering local communities to care for and feed community animals, as, many of them brought the community pets for spaying/neutering and vaccinating. The number of out-patients to our clinic also soared high where some of the life-saving surgeries were performed on out-patient community pets as well. Two of the remarkable rescue stories have been that of Sabu and Meena. Thanks to donors like yourself, we were able to give them the critical care and perform life-saving surgeries at the time they needed it and we are ever grateful. 

Rescued with a lacerated wound on her paw and a big tumor near her chest, Meena had to undergo emergency surgery as the tumor was growing bigger by the day. Though she was quite old and the surgery being risky at that age, we went ahead with it since it was the only option to relieve her from pain. Thanks to our skilled veterinary team and the donations we received to cover the cost, the surgery was performed successfully and the tumor was removed. Following our current philosophy of performing spay/neuter whenever an opportunity presented itself, we also spayed her while under anesthesia. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as we found out that she also had pyometra which could have put her life at risk soon had she not been operated. Following Meena, Sabu also underwent amputation as he had a cancerous growth on the hind-limb. Sabu and Meena have both recovered fully and have since then been released back to their communities.

While your $50 donation covers the complete cost of food, treatment and care for one rescue animal for a whole month, your $100 donation covers the entire cost of an emergency special surgery. 

With your kindness, we are confident of moving forward. Please continue to support us!

May and June 2020 Update of the Sanctuary Animals

Still riding the waves of the pandemic, May and June also proved to be challenging; however, the overwhelming support of donors from different parts of the world helped us tide over the difficulties. We start this report by expressing our heartfelt gratitude to all of you - the amazing donors who have helped us to stay afloat and continue our life-saving work.

During May and June, we managed to re-start our Spay/Neuter program as well as continue to carry out emergency life-saving surgeries for street animals. The task of encouraging and empowering local communities to care for and feed community animals was continued by several volunteers, creating the much needed awareness during this time of crisis. This indeed has had a rippling effect amply demonstrated by the several requests from public on sterilizing and vaccinating street and community animals which we were able to carry out successfully.

One of the remarkable rescue stories has been that of Eeesha. She was found in the streets after an accident with a dead puppy stuck halfway in the birth canal. She had to undergo an emergency C-section. Unfortunately, the rest of the pups had also died inside her. She was very fragile after the surgery and needed critical post-operative care. She was a bag of bones when she was admitted at our shelter and was completely recumbent for the first few days. With each passing day, her health improved and now she is able to walk on her own without any support. However, she needs to gain weight and recover strength and still has a long way before getting released back to the community. Thanks to donors like yourself, we were able to give her the critical care at the time she needed it most and we are ever grateful.

While your $20 donation covers the cost of a life-saving surgery, a $50 donation covers the complete cost of food, treatment and care for one rescue animal for a whole month.

With your kindness, we are confident of moving forward. Please continue to support us!
