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.

Release of Theo

A happy ending for Theo!. Theo was released successfully in his surroundings. He was extremely delighted to be back and is being cared for by the local residents. A lovely ending considering the hardship he went through. You have made this happen through your donations.Your donations helped pay for Theo's treatment and boarding expenses.

 As you may be aware, Theo was rescued over one year ago by Blue Cross of India with a severe wound on his left foreleg. Due to the severity of his injury, he was taken to a private clinic for treatment. He was operated upon and the surgery was 90% successful. Subsequently, he had to undergo two successive minor surgeries. Theo o had to undergo a long recovery period at a foster home. Finally, the D-Day arrived when he was declared fit and could be released. Since, he has been away for a long time from his surroundings, we went and checked out the place and made sure he would be cared for when released. We found the place safe and people were willing to care for him. The next week we took there and his happiness was boundless. He jumped out of the cage and started to examine the surroundings. The last time we checked on him, he was fine and enjoying his freedom. Bye Theo. We sure miss you.

At Blue Cross we have many cats that come with complications requiring specialized care and treatment. This project helps such cats.We are grateful for your support to help these unfortunate cats.Thank You

Milestones met

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.
