We are so pleased to bring you the latest report on our Rescue & Care Project.

Your donations and support have helped so many animals during the winter which is one of the worst times to be living out on the streets. TOLFA are there to provide a lifeline to the most vulnerable and needy. We have received calls for help for several litters of orphaned puppies, which are now warm, safe and receiving round-the-clock care from our dedicated staff.

Your help funds 2 rescue vehicles and a scooter (for on-the-spot mange teeatments) that run seven days a week responding to emergency calls, and engaging with the community to make sure the street animals are healthy and cared for.

We have crunched our 2017 numbers and can let you know that last year 5,967 street animals were admitted through Rescue & Care, with a further 875 animals recieving treatment for minor complaints on the street.

Through all our projects combined (Rescue & Care, Animal Birth Control, Pet Clinics and Rural Animal Health) we helped an astonishing 35,340 animals in total in 2017.

We could not do all this without your fantastic support.

Thank you from us and every one of our animals,

Dear Friend,

It is time for our progress report and we really want to say THANK YOU for supporting TOLFA and our work rescuing the street animals of India.

In August and September alone we attended 1,848 rescue calls; admitted 1,168 animals; and gave a total of 20,141 individual treatments to rescued animals in our care.

After the monsoon each year we get inundated with dogs and other animals suffering from terrible maggot wounds and it is always a struggle to attend to them all. But without TOLFA they would have suffered alone in the streets. Your support and donations really make a difference!

Please take a look at the photos to see the work we are doing every day - orphaned kittens, dogs with mange, and a fluffy baby donkey!

Christmas is on the way and we now have our 2018 Calendars available to buy from our eBay store - please take a look HERE. A great gift idea for animal lovers and a lovely way to show you stand up for street animals.

It means everything to us to have supporters like you, we hope that you have a very happy Christmas and festive season!

'Til next time!

Leo - Before and After at TOLFA
Leo - Before and After at TOLFA
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your donation to our Rescue & Care project. With your help our rescue vehicles are going out every day to help sick and injured street animals on India's streets.
This includes dogs like Leo, who we recently had to admit to our hospital for treatment. Leo had been bitten under his neck by another dog. For the first few days he was in pain, traumatised by his experience and very bothered by the wound. Once he got used to the nice people helping him and started to heal he really came out of his shell and has become quite a livewire, unable to stay still! Leo has a caregiver on his street who is very keen for him to come home. He will be sterilised and have his vaccinations before being reunited - we're sure it will be a joyful occasion as Leo has such a fun personality!
Helping Leo to make his recovery was Ravi, one of our rescue & care team. Ravi has worked at TOLFA for 4 years, and in that time he was married and now has two beautiful daughters. Ravi is very diligent in his work and recently gave up his free time to stay at TOLFA when we were short-staffed. Ravi spends his days assisting with medical treatments for our rescued adult dogs. He is a good dog handler and has always naturally comforted the dogs with soft words and strokes during their treatment. Since working for us Ravi has also recruited his younger brother Jai, who works out on our rescue vehicle, so it really is a TOLFA family affair!
We are so grateful for your support - it is really making a difference for animals here in Rajasthan.

Thank you,
Ravi and Leo after treatment

Dear Friend,

We have crunched the numbers and are happy to report that our Rescue & Care project has admitted 2,188 sick and injured animals so far this year. These are animals that have been involved in motor accidents, are victims of abuse, have developed illnesses such as disptemper or hepatitits, or have suffered from one of a multitude of other causes that have left them in dire need of care and attention.

And you have helped make that possible! Thank you so much for supporting our work and saving lives in India.

Your support means that we always have a rescue team at the ready to help. Last month we were called to a dog who had fallen down an 80ft village well. She was desperately paddling for her life in cold water at the bottom. Our rescue team knew what to do and team member Nandu was carefully lowered down in a makeshift sling attached to the winch on our rescue vehicle. Luckily the dog was unharmed and very happy to meet her rescuers! 

You can watch the incredible rescue HERE on TOLFA's YouTube Channel.

If you would like to hear more about TOLFA's work and rescue stories please sign up to our e-newsletter HERE.

We are also very excited to have had a photo selected for the Global Giving 2017 Photo Contest. There is a prize of $1,000 at stake, so please make sure you vote for us - Global Giving Photo Contest. The photo shows one of oldest staff members, Chacha, caring for a rescued donkey and prefectly sums up our ethos of compassion and kindness for all.

Thank you once again for your kind donation and support that makes all we do for animals possible.

Until next time,

 

Clara
