Pictures speak a thousand words as the saying goes. This is true for cats in the shelter. Our cats are happy, healthy and safe. The cats are vaccinated and neutered. They spend their days happily roaming around in the facility, as we beleive that cats need freedom to express their natural behaviour. You, the donor, made it happen!.You can see for yourself in the attached pictures. These cats have nowhere to go and no place to call their home. Many of these cats have been rescued from hospitals which have a strict 'no animal 'policy. Sadly,cats are still being abandoned in our shelter and we try our level best to find them homes and give them a good life.
The progress in the past three months has been tremendous. We have neutered 100 cats and safely rehabilitated them. We have also rescued and treated more than 100 street cats. Our newest arrival is Salie who has injured her front and hind legs. She is presently undergoing treatment and doing well. Salie is malnourished and needs special attention. Salie would not have a chance at survival in the outside world. At Blue Cross we are able to rescue and treat these homeless animals. This has been made possible because of the donations that we receive from kind-hearted donors like you.
Theo underwent one major and two minor surgeries on his injured left foreleg before he was declared fit. He is now healthy and loves to run around. He is in rehabilitation as he needs time to start using his injured leg fully. He walks with a slight limp, He is scared as you can see from his photo. He always has a worried look!
He has been in treatment for four months and has been an excellent patient. He never complained on being caged. Thanks to your generous donation, Theo can now lead a normal life. Your donations are a life saver to Theo and cats that need urgent medical attentions
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.
