Spay and Neuter 2000 Cats and Dogs in Chennai

by Blue Cross of India Vetted since 2011 Site Visit Verified


This project will spay/neuter 2000 cats and dogs in Chennai and surrounding areas. Every year, hundreds of thousands of unwanted kittens and puppies that are born in Chennai and surrounding areas die in accidents or succumb to starvation or deadly diseases. Spaying/ neutering homeless cats and dogs helps prevent these unwanted births and promotes the health of adult cats and dogs.

total goal
monthly donors


Chennai and surrounding areas are home to hundreds of thousands of homeless cats and dogs. A majority of them are not spayed/neutered which results in an increase in their numbers. These homeless animals are often killed in inhumane ways by the local community. Government funding and donations from the public cover only a fraction of the cost incurred to undertake a large scale birth control program.. Non-availability of funding delays the ambitious goal of having a city free of homeless animals


The project will spay/neuter cats and dogs in Chennai and surrounding areas and thereby arrest the population growth. This preempts culling and cruelty by the local community and also serves as the first and crucial step in bringing down the number of homeless animals in the city in a manner that has been proven worldwide as humane and effective. Animal birth control will help prevent unwanted births and prevent loss of animal lives due to accidents, cruelty, diseases and starvation

Long-Term Impact

The project will promote safety of cats, dogs and other animals in the community by proactive, compassionate behaviour. The safety of the community will also be ensured in the process. While the numbers decline, the health and life of homeless animals will improve.
