Neonatal Unit - Puppy Feeding
Neonatal Unit - Puppy Feeding

Hello,
Hope this report finds you in good health and spirit. 
Back here in India, we surpassed the second wave of the pandemic. We cautiously opened to visitors, as our highest priority was the health of our staff so we could continue to care for our animals uninterrupted. 
The second wave slowed down our adoptions to a certain extent, although we continued to find homes through our home adoption initiative, where all the pre adoption procedures were done virtually and then the pups & kittens were dropped to their new homes, keeping all safety precautions in place. Follow ups & guidance calls continued to ensure that our animals got the happy ending they rightly deserve. We recently hosted our first offline adoption event, as we wanted our pups to have every chance they could get.
In terms of trauma care, we had our hands full, as there were not many animal shelters working through the pandemic. Thanks to your generous contributions towards our medication expenses, we managed to pull through. 
During the lockdown, we also received many calls of orphaned pups & kittens. 
Neonates of any species are among the most vulnerable and if they are motherless,the situation is very grim. CARE has the only neonatal facility for pups and kittens in the city and we try our best to save each little life. The most important thing a Neonatal unit requires is a good Incubator which can maintain the required temperature and oxygen levels so vital to saving a life.
So far, we were using incubators meant for human babies, but we managed to procure 2 incubators specifically designed for pups & kittens that cost us around 4000 $. 
With the upgraded neonatal unit, we need funds for the running of this much needed, extremely important facility that has the potential to save many lives. The average cost of that would run up to about 270 dollars a month wich would cover feeding bottles, Goat Gold milk replacer powder, Lactol, Cerelac and other similar items used for these puppies. The cost of running this for the entire year would be about 3,240 $. 
We hope to raise it soon and run our upgraded neonatal facility saving the lives of these tiny creatures. Every life counts. 
Thank you again for your support.

Regards, 

Sudha Narayanan,

Renovation of Trauma Care Inpatient Unit
Renovation of Trauma Care Inpatient Unit

As the lockdown eases and the COVID 19 numbers began to drop, we have become busier than ever. There is a sudden increase in the number of motherless puppies being dropped off at the shelter, and our puppy unit is facing a deluge with our unit running double its capacity. Currently we have 85 pups under our care needing puppy tonics, nourishing food, deworming & vaccinations. Some of them need round the clock care.

The ones who have completed their vaccinations and healthy, have been moved to our adoption unit. All efforts are being directed towards finding loving homes and families.

Even as we grapple with increasing numbers, we felt the need for a rehaul and upgrade to our trauma care unit. However, we had to get the renovation done with makeshift arrangements, as we continued to provide medical help to the animals that came to us during the time, as there is no scope for us to cease our work, no matter what the situation may be.

The sheer range of diseases & conditions seen in the OPD is overwhelming. From malnourishment, accidents, maggot infested wounds, to tumours, some of them are intensely heartbreaking.

Each case requires basic first aid & care, a diagnostic work up followed by treatment and a post operative recovery period before release. All of them require medications, both short term & long term, and the medication bill runs up to about 5 lakhs a month.

This is our most pressing need at the moment, to have our medication bills covered, so we can give the best to our intended beneficiaries, the stray animals of Bangalore.

Administration of medicines, is a crucial aspect of our trauma care, and runs like clockwork. Apart from the animals at our trauma care unit, some of our permanent residents also require long term medications for their chronic diseases.
Hence, I request you to kindly consider donating towards our medication bills.
I thank you for your continued support and wish you the very best.

Hello !
I hope you and your family are doing well.
At CARE, we have had to scale up our operations, as we were one among the few shelters that was operational throughout the COVID period.


For most part of the time, we had placed restrictions on visits & volunteering,despite the city going through phases of Unlock. It was a difficult decision to take, but the benefits definitely outweighed the cons. We could continue to keep our staff healthy & happy, thus our animals were well taken care of without any hiccups.


As the cases at the CARE OPD mounted, we also had to gear up for feeding the animals on the street.
The pandemic caused major havoc in the lives of lakhs of animals that scavenged for their food. With most eateries closed down and people not venturing outside as much, the animals took a huge hit.
What began as a small scale exercise, then snowballed into a major operation of mammoth proportions.
We began to not only provide food for the animals, we also began to provide food to verified feeders across the city, so they could in turn cover more animals. In this way, we were able to feed more than 1000 street dogs over a period of 6 months.
With the situation returning to normal, and most establishments staying open,we continue to feed these stray animals, as we realise that some of them particularly, the weak, the old and mother dogs require that extra help as they navigate through this challenging situation.

Meanwhile, our CARE for CATS centre, an exclusive facility for 60 cats, is up and running, and we thank you for your help in covering our running costs for the first 3 months.
For a quick virtual tour of the Care for Cats facility, please click on the link at the end of the report.

We continue to look forward to your support, as every contribution of yours helps us go that extra mile, which is most often the bridge between life and death for these beautiful creatures.
Thank you for your continued support.

Care for Cats New Facility
Care for Cats New Facility

Hope this report finds all of our donors and well wishers in good health during these difficult times. Covid 19 had most of the world ensnared in its grip, and we were not spared wither. While the country and city went into a complete lockdown, Care continued operations, as animal welfare and rescue was  rightfully considered as essential services. To make it safer and convenient for our staff, we made arrangements for their stay at the shelter. This was done to ensure that our animals contiuned to receive attention and food, no matter what happened outside. Our staff was provided with all the amenities to make them comfortable and we were grateful for their selfless gesture towards the animals under our care. 
The CARE for Cats facility was under construction when we were hit by the pandemic. With a lot of difficulty, under significant duress, we finally completed the construction and moved all the cats safely to the new facility.
When we started the construction, it seemed like quite an uphill task but we could do this thanks to your generosity and support. 
The cats have been divided into packs and live in seperate enclosures, where they get their food, enrichments and a whole lot of love. 
Now with the big task behind us, we are now working hard to cover our running costs. 
Our running costs include Recurring Monthly Expenditure of a Total of  1,455 $ which includes
1. Salaries – 3 Persons – 2 Cleaners Staff+ Front office asst – Rs.756 $
2. Medicines + Vaccines- 280$
3. Food – 350$
4. Miscellaneous – Cleaning Material , Staff welfare etc- 70$

To begin with, we want to raise enough funds  to keep us going for the next 3 months and so we are looking at raising about 4,365 $. 

During these trying times, we once again request your support to help us tide through. 
Signing off for now, and wishing you and your family good health and happiness.

Greetings to all our donors and well wishers, 

First of all, Thank You for your patience. So much has happened in the last few months at the shelter that kept all of us incredibly busy. Before I begin with that, I would like to thank you all for your continued support and your donations, towards the feeding of our barnyard animals.
When we started CARE, it was meant only for cats and dogs,however when other animals began to show up at the gates of CARE, it was difficult to say no. And so one enclosure after the other came up, and today we have a wide mix of farm animals that includes pigs,ducks, roosters, hens, rabbits and Guinea pigs at Charlies barnyard. It gives us immense pleasure to see them live out their life peacefully and fearlessly and we have you all to thank for helping us cover their feeding costs. 
Coming to the reason what kept us so busy, was that we had an alarming situation a few months ago.  Due to unfortunate and hostile circumstances, we have had to shift the cats at Care for cats facility overnight from Whitefield to our shelter premises in Yelahanka.

However, now we are looking at building a permanent facility for them right next door to our current shelter and we require a huge amount of funds.
  

The challenge now is to raise funds to build housing enclosures make it cat proof, provide enrichments, good food, the best medical care and to reassure them that they are finally home & here to stay.

The cats need your help and they need it quickly. Please open your hearts to them, we and they need it.

What we Need:
A. One Time Funding : Total - 24,000 $ which includes 
1. Advance Payment to secure the place for 10 years - 5600 $
2. Cost of Fabrication of cages, Electrical & Plumbing work, Tiling the floor, Paving the yard , putting in enrichments, - 18,200 $
B. Recurring Monthly Expenditure -Total – 1,455 $ which includes
1. Salaries – 3 Persons – 2 Cleaners Staff+ Front office asst – Rs.756 $
2. Medicines + Vaccines- 280$
3. Food – 350$
4. Miscellaneous – Cleaning Material , Staff welfare etc- 70$

 
You can choose to make a small recurring donation  or one time donation depending on your convenience. 
I once again thank you for being the strength behind Care and I appreciate it even more during these troubled times, to know that we have all of your support. It is indeed the only thing that keeps us going.
