Venba - From Hurt to Healed
Venba - From Hurt to Healed

September and October 2021 were again two remarkable months where we accomplished many life-saving surgeries for rescues of the city. We got a few successful adoptions and witnessed several transformation stories that are heartwarming. You have stood by us with your unstinting support and we are most grateful.

On September 28th, celebrated all over the world as World Rabies Day, we were out on the streets vaccinating 100s of street dogs and creating awareness about the deadly disease of Rabies - unfortunately not curable, but 100% preventable. The whole week starting from Sep 28th was celebrated as Rabies Awareness Week where we were able to administer free rabies vaccination to anyone who brought their pet to our clinic. We hope our dream of a Rabies-free Coimbatore becomes a reality at a not too distant future, and with your support, we are sure we can reach there sooner. 

The two most significant rescues were that of Lucy and Venba - both just touch and go; but recovered remarkably with the special care they received at our clinic. Lucy was rescued after a horrible road traffic accident where one of her limbs was completely crushed. After a successful amputation, and despite being a tri-pawd, she outruns her four-legged friends comfortably today and has endeared herself to all our staff members. She has joined our family of permanent members of the sanctuary. Venba, a small puppy, was rescued with a massive dog-bite wound on her head; but today she is completely healed and ready to be adopted!

Heartwarming scenes at the sanctuary always make us believe in the power of compassion and that is reflected in the beautiful capture of our rescue cow Lakshmi with her bestie Veeru - the pony with whom she shares a special bond. Hope that brings a smile to your face too!

While your $ 50 donation covers the sponsorship of one of our permanent animals for a whole month, no amount is too small when it comes to making a difference to precious lives

Thanks to your continued commitment to the cause, we are able to rescue and rehabilitate many sick, injured and abandoned animals of this city. Kindly continue to support us!

July and August 2021 were remarkable months where we pushed the boundaries further in saving more lives by rescuing several animals that were in distress and by performing a few special surgeries successfully, thanks to the overwhelming support we received from our donors. 

The most significant rescues were that of Mittu and Jaanu - both suffering immeasurably; but responding well to the treatment and care and rebounding quickly. Little pupper Chutki who came with a fractured limb has also recovered dramatically and is now able to bear weight on all four limbs.

In these two months, we also accomplished 40 adoptions of pets from the shelter as well as from different foster homes. Much to our delight, one of our long-term resident rescue pets, Michael with his permanent wink, after his eye was surgically removed following an accident at the time of rescue, finally found his forever home.

These two months also saw several life-saving special surgeries - from amputations and tumor excisions to emergency C-sections - successfully carried out and the patients rehabilitated promptly. We squeezed in a few rabies vaccination drives as well that helped in creating awareness among the public about Rabies and the need to keep vaccination status current, not only for pets, but also for community animals.

While your $10 donation covers the cost of 1 spay/neuter surgery and vaccination against rabies, $60 donation covers the complete cost of food for all the 150 residents of the shelter and sanctuary each day. 

Thanks to your compassion and kindness, we are able to rescue and rehabilitate many sick, injured and abandoned animals. Kindly continue to support us!

May and June 2021 continued to pose challenges because of the pandemic; however, the overwhelming support from many compassionate individuals all over the globe, especially through this portal, helped us tide over these times and also perform several life-saving surgeries, amazing adoptions and a very engaging rabies vaccination drive where we interacted with several members of a village community to positively reinforce the need to co-habit with street animals.

The most remarkable achievement for us during these two months has been in the area of life-saving surgeries that we were able to perform where some of the pets could be saved from the brink of death. We were also able to conduct a few incredible adoptions - noteworthy among them being those of Daisy and Camus as well as Sigma and Omega - the last of the 8 pups that were abandoned in front of our shelter-gate.

Three cases of dogs trapped in snares were rescued this month and with due care and caution, all three were eventually relieved of the awful contraptions and have since then successfully rehabilitated. In the month of June alone we successfully carried out 8 life-saving surgeries, from a leg amputation to splenectomy and an emergency C-section on a cat that had a dead foetus in her stomach. Stories of rescue pets Jaanu, Nandhini and Cookie are indeed testimony to their grit and gumption.

While your $10 donation covers the cost of 1 spay/neuter surgery and vaccination against rabies, and $50 donation covers the complete cost of food, treatment and care for one rescue animal for a whole month, your $100 donation covers the entire cost of an emergency special surgery or the treatment and care for a critically injured case. 

With your generosity, we strive hard to protect the most vulnerable street animals of this city. Please continue to support us!

March and April 2021 have been extremely challenging due to the second wave of the pandemic unleashing its fury all over India and impacting our abilities in extending help to the many distress calls involving animals. Once again, the lockdown has imposed serious challenges for the street animals in getting leftover food from hotels and wayside shops. We have once again mobilized support from several quarters to cope with the situation and we hope donors such as yourselves will certainly have the animals in your hearts as we continue to fight the pandemic. 

The most remarkable achievement for us during these two months has been in the area of life-saving rescues where some of the pets could be saved from the brink of death. We were also able to conduct a few incredible adoptions - including that of a totally blind rescue pet Raja. Raja now lives comfortably with a loving and compassionate family who dotes on him. Thanks to donors like yourself, we were able to give them the critical care and treatment at the time they needed it most and we are forever grateful. 

Beautiful girl - aptly named Azhagi (Beauty in the local language of Tamil from the area of India that we are located), has come a long way from the fateful hit & run accident that fractured her hind limb. The open fracture, despite first-aid, did not start healing and she was in a lot of pain. After a few days of observation, we were left with no choice, but to remove her deformed and fractured limb surgically to alleviate the pain and save her life. What is truly heart-warming is to note Azhagi's unconditional love and trust despite all the agony she had been through. After having completed her surgery, she now enjoys walking joyously not even knowing that she is a tri-pawd!

The other remarkable adoptions that took place were that of a calm and quiet pet Uma and that of a young pup Pi - one of the seven orphans abandoned mercilessly in front of our shelter, both of whom are now happy at their forever homes with loving families. There are many rescues awaiting their forever homes and happy-go-lucky rescue pets - Summer and Poha just love to happily chill out at our centre. We are deeply indebted to your donations - big and small, that have made all this incredible work possible.

While your $50 donation covers the complete cost of food, treatment and care for one rescue animal for a whole month, your $100 donation covers the entire cost of an emergency special surgery or the treatment and care for a critically injured case. 

With your generosity, we strive hard to protect the most vulnerable street animals of this city. Please continue to support us!

The months of January and February 2021 have been phenomenal as we accomplished record number of life-saving special surgeries as well as several spay/neuter surgeries. These two months also witnessed several successful adoptions of rescued pets. Our work on encouraging and empowering local communities to care for and feed community animals continued unabated. All of this have been made possible only by your incredible support. Our heartfelt gratitude to each and everyone of you for your compassion and kindness to our rescue pets and permanent animals.

Two of the remarkable rescue stories have been that of Pigmy and Maya. Thanks to donors like yourself, we were able to give them the critical care and perform life-saving surgeries at the time they needed it and we are ever grateful. 

Rescued with a huge mammary tumour, Pigmy was in terrible shape and urgently needed lifesaving surgery. Once stabilized and on the operating table, our vets discovered that she was riddled with large uterine tumours too. Having undergone double surgeries successfully in one go, Pigmy is now recovering in the safety of our rescue centre.

Maya was involved in an accident that left her with nasty fractures to both her hind limbs, and with such grievous injuries, she wouldn’t have survived for long on the streets. Fortunately, Maya was spotted and rushed to our clinic, where our vets immobilized her fractured limbs and with a period of bed rest, love and tasty food, she recovered beautifully. The timely intervention saved both her legs and she is back on all four frolicking around with her playmates. Thankfully, her rescuer has come forward to adopt her too. Now, she is waiting to get spayed so that she can go to her forever home!

While your $50 donation covers the complete cost of food, treatment and care for one rescue animal for a whole month, your $100 donation covers the entire cost of an emergency special surgery. 

With your kindness, we are confident of moving forward. Please continue to support us!
