Build a cattery for 300 abandoned cats and kittens

by Blue Cross of India

We are very excited as we are working on building a brand new home for our beloved kittens. Thank you donors for contributing to the fun. We hope to raise funds to make it happen soon. The present shelter is leaky and rusty. The proposed new shelter will have two floors and plenty of room for the cats to move about and play. More importantly, the new shelter will have a quarantine area which would help greatly in bringing down the infection rate. A separate section will house nursing cats with their newborn kittens. 

Your donation has helped towards building this cattery. We are very exciited as this has been on the cards for a long time. We thank you for your support.

Rainy season has started in Chennai. These rains will continue till the end of the year. With the donations that you so generously gave us, we were able to buy taurpaulin sheets and cover the kitten and cat shelters. This helped in  protecting our kittens from the cold rain. We also vaccinated the cats and applied fiprofort to protect them from fleas.

We are raising funds to put up a permanent roof for the kittens to keep them warm during the rains. More than twenty cats have been added to the cattery. These were cats that have been removed from hospitals. The cats have been spayed and vaccinated. The cattery is getting over crowded and the cats need more space.


Dear Donor,

The past three months have been hectic in the cattery with the monsoon rains setting in and more cats being rescued. 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, now spayed and ready to move into the shelter.

Your donation is giving cats like Kalki a second chance.

Thank you for supporting “Build a cattery for 300 abandoned cats and kittens”. The project has made a slow but a promising start. With your generous donation we were able to paint the existing cattery and the work is still in progress. The place is sparkling clean and the cats simply love it. A clean shelter prevents diseases and keeps the animals healthy. We still have a long way to go to reach the project goal of building a  cattery for these homeless animals. Please share the project among your friends and help us achieve our target.

 Thanks again for your support. A big MEOW from our grateful cats.
