Help 38 Cats Rescued from the Cat Meat Trade

A microproject by Blue Cross of India Vetted since 2011 Site Visit Verified


The Blue Cross of India rescue team got a tip off that 38 cats were being transported on a local train , tied in air tight gunny bags, to be slaughtered for meat. Immediately, the rescue team left to wait at the station where the cats were slated to be disembarked. The train arrived at the station and our heroic team pounced upon the poachers and grabbed the gunny bags. Immediately, the cats were transferred to crates and transported to the Blue Cross Shelter safely.
