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.
