Shelter dog in front of Blood Bank
Namaste, Dear supporters, readers, and animal lovers.
As we write, we treat 49 injured dogs and cats receiving life-saving vet treatment in our shelter and foster homes. Another 22 paralyzed, disabled and senior dogs, puppies, and cats live in the sanctuary. About 15 recovered dogs waiting for adoption or release.
According to our veterinarian Incidence of Tick-Borne diseases has crossed 35% of overall walk-ins per day. 2 out of 10 are not making it. Compared to the last five years, Humidity and moisture now help them multiply and adapt to changing weather more aggressively.
No wonder 95% of strays are anemic, and 70% of them have low platelets.
Ticks have given us a break in the past two months. But it may not be for long. Life-saving blood transfusion numbers have reduced. In the monsoon season, severe rains and storms in certain areas cause havoc. Sewers are overflowing, and manholes are not visible, creating more danger to animals.
Coming to the Blood bank, we have started applying for approvals. They asked for references, our veterinarian had requested a referral letter from Chennai blood bank. We anticipate the approval process may take about 9 months. Veterinarian is on top of it. Once all approvals are received, we will buy a blood storage freezer, blood extractor, storage plastic bags, and hire a technician.
We cannot wait to see the animals benefit from Blood Bank.
Supporters are pillars of our success. The impact you make is very, very real – and it's HUGE. These deserving dogs get their chances at extraordinary lives ONLY because of awesome people like you!
We are thrilled to inform you that our shelter expansion in 2022 is nearly complete. In the newly acquired 1/4th acre land adjacent to the current 1/4th acre shelter we have built.

We struggle to keep the clinic functional with medicines, supplies, and equipment.
Our pride does not fulfill here, and our service does not end here. We are yet to achieve much more than the accomplishments we did this year in the future.
Yet to achieve goals for the year 2022
- Increase our rescue numbers to 50 dogs and cats per month,
- Increment sterilization to 100 dogs every month
- Start sterilizations in-house.
- Expand education and cruelty
- And finally, the most essential is to reinforce the adoption system.
We’re making big, bold asks of our long-time supporters – and that’s you! Can we count on you to support our work with $100 or $1,000 to help street animals in India?
We still need funds for clinic medicines, equipment, supplies, and generator.

Ujwala Chintala, Founder & President
At Stray Animal Foundation of India, we strive day to day to serve the uncared, unloved, neglected street animals. We rescue, transport the injured, rehabilitate, sterilize and put up the animals for adoption.
We would like to see these numbers multifold with all your cooperation and contribution in the coming future.
For an Animal Shelter to sustain the growing number of neglected and injured street animals, multiple material and human resources must be maintained. That's where your contributions are put towards. One can only understand the financial support our foundation would require to travel the long waylaying ahead of us. Actions speak a thousand words. Let's come together and put our hearts to a beautiful cause.
