Meet Smokey, a beautiful ash-colored female cat whose hind legs were badly injured. She was rescued along with her four kittens by Blue Cross of India. After a prolonged treatment, she finally recovered and  has been vaccinated and spayed. She has been transferred to the shelter and has settled down there.

Another inspiring cat is Ash. He has been abandoned by his owner and was rescued by Blue Cross of India. Both her hind legs are injured and she walks with some difficulty. She has also been spayed and relocated to the shelter.

Animal birth control has now become the topmost priority at the shelter. Every day, cats are being spayed  and more than sixty sterilizations are done every month. We are thankful for your generous donations which makes all this possible. We hope to increase our sterilizations of both cats and dogs in the future. We are thankful to your generous donations to help animals in Chennai.

Midnight, shebha and kutti are three new arrivals in the shelter. Midnight, with his foreleg injured,  was rescued from the streets by a good samaritan and brought to Blue Cross. His foreleg was amputated and since he was homeless, he was transferred to the shelter. He is extremely friendly and quickly made friends with the other cats and is now happily settled there. He has been neutered and vaccinated. Shebha was also rescued and has been spayed and vaccinated. Kutti is a female who is a hindleg amputee. She too has been spayed and vaccinated. All these cats have a second chance due to your donations. They now live a dignified life and run around fearlessly. Besides these three cats, we are spaying and neutering the street cats that are rescued. Every cat that comes to Blue Cross is spayed and vaccinated.

We deeply appreciate your kind donations that help us to help animals in distress.

In this report we would like to share with you on how are feline residents are faring in the cattery. All the cats are well and healthy. We are sharing a picture of Leo with his caretlaker. Leo was arrived at the hospital with an injured leg. His hind leg and to be amputated and now he is completely recovered and happily running around in the faciliy. He is neutered and vaccinated. His happy story could not have been possible without your kind donation. Very often we admit disabled cats that cannot be left outside. We will continue with the story of the disabled cats in our next report also. Thirty cats and about 500 dogs have been neutered over the past two months.

Atanu, the cat section caretaker, has been taking care of the cats for about a year. He says he enjoys caring for the cats. He is very sincere and goes to great lengths in ensuring the well being of the cats.

In February 799 street dogs and 36 street cats were sterilized. In March 755 street dogs and 34 street cats have been sterilized. Your kind donation has helped in this great effort!. We would like to share pictures of our gorgeous cats that are in our shelter. There are more than 70 cats and more than 20 of them are disabled. These cats are all sterilized and neutered and we love them to bits.These are all rescued cats that have either been abandoned or cannot be put back on the street due to disability.

The summer is here and our shelter gets very warm- much too warm for our cats and kittens. We try to keep them comfortable by hanging wet gunny bags on the walls and keeping the fans on throught the day and night. 

A few heart-warming happy tails:

Debra came to the shelter as a four-month old kitten, No one came forward to adopt her inspite of our feverish efforts. She lives in the shelter and is happy to be here. She loves to climb trees and run around. She is stays away from people and loves to be in the company of other cats.

Tiger is one of our older resident who has been with us for more than five years. She was abandoned at our shelter. She keeps to her herself and is loves to be around people.

These cats have a second chance because of your kind and valuable support.

Blue Cross of India team helping out during floods

Chennai braces for floods every November and December. The number of rescues quadrapule and the shelter strives hard to cope with the grave situation. This year, the flooding was unprecedented and unexpected. Our brave team of volunteers went out to rescue the less fortunate and hapless animals. In November, the shelter attended to 1411 rescue calls and the number increased to 1500 in December,

In spite of the relentless monsoon, there was no let up in the animal birth control programme. In October 2015, 833 dogs and 84 cats were treated and sterilized. In November, 451 dogs were treated and sterilized and the number of cats sterilized was 25

Our star survivor this month is Ginger boy who has been in the shelter for four years and has now been diagnosed with oral tumour. Unfortunately, the cancer is in advanced stage and he is on palliative care. He is coping well and loving all the attention he is getting. Lets hope and pray he recovers and regains his health. All this cannot happen without your generous donations. We are grateful for it and we hope to continue our animal welfare activities in the face of all odds.
