In February 799 street dogs and 36 street cats were sterilized. In March 755 street dogs and 34 street cats have been sterilized. Your kind donation has helped in this great effort!. We would like to share pictures of our gorgeous cats that are in our shelter. There are more than 70 cats and more than 20 of them are disabled. These cats are all sterilized and neutered and we love them to bits.These are all rescued cats that have either been abandoned or cannot be put back on the street due to disability.

The summer is here and our shelter gets very warm- much too warm for our cats and kittens. We try to keep them comfortable by hanging wet gunny bags on the walls and keeping the fans on throught the day and night. 

A few heart-warming happy tails:

Debra came to the shelter as a four-month old kitten, No one came forward to adopt her inspite of our feverish efforts. She lives in the shelter and is happy to be here. She loves to climb trees and run around. She is stays away from people and loves to be in the company of other cats.

Tiger is one of our older resident who has been with us for more than five years. She was abandoned at our shelter. She keeps to her herself and is loves to be around people.

These cats have a second chance because of your kind and valuable support.

Special needs cats at the Blue Cross Shelter

Snow White
Snow White

Snow White, Bruno and Missy are recent additions to the Blue Cross Shelter. They share something in common - loss of a limb. All the three are street cats and have no home. They were all rescued and treated by Blue Cross of India. The cats underwent amputation and neutering. The cats have been given their vaccination shots before transferring them to the shelter. The cats have now settled down at the shelter and freely roam with no fear. Snow White found a home last week and is happily settled. 

Your generous donations gives a second chance to these unfortunate cats. Every month, many special needs cats enter our shelter after treatment. These cats have nowhere to go and no one to take care of them. We at Blue Cross of India, strive our level  best to care for them and give them a new leash of life.

We appreciate your generous donation that helps us help animals in distress.

Monsoon Mania

Chennai braces for floods every November and December. The number of rescues quadrapule and the shelter strives hard to cope with the grave situation. This year, the flooding was unprecedented and unexpected. Our brave team of volunteers went out to rescue the less fortunate and hapless animals. In November, the shelter attended to 1411 rescue calls and the number increased to 1500 in December,

In spite of the relentless monsoon, there was no let up in the animal birth control programme. In October 2015, 833 dogs and 84 cats were treated and sterilized. In November, 451 dogs were treated and sterilized and the number of cats sterilized was 25

Our star survivor this month is Ginger boy who has been in the shelter for four years and has now been diagnosed with oral tumour. Unfortunately, the cancer is in advanced stage and he is on palliative care. He is coping well and loving all the attention he is getting. Lets hope and pray he recovers and regains his health. All this cannot happen without your generous donations. We are grateful for it and we hope to continue our animal welfare activities in the face of all odds.
