Every contribution helps wild animals get medical help!
The fundraiser has been extended to give it more time to reach the target.
It is one way to conserve wildlife. In the last year, veterinary staff have attended to bone plating of a jackal, a broken wing of an owl, surgically repaired broken shells of tortoises, removed fishing hooks from turtles, among other such injuries. Once treated the animals need shelter before being released into their natural habitat. All this requires funding to cover costs of surgeons, medical kits, fiber cages and food for the animals, etc.WHY THANE
There isn’t a single centre in the twin cities of Mumbai-Thane which provides medical care to wild animals. The Forest Department does not have its own infrastructure so the responsibility of rescue and care falls on centres like TSPCA's. Though there are some that rescue animals, none are able to provide medical aid. In 2018-19, Thane SPCA have treated 450 wild animals in their out-patients department and admitted 957 animals.THE PLAN
The funds raised will be used to rescue, provide medical and surgical intervention and to take care of the wild animals until they can be rehabilitated back in nature. Once the wild animals are brought to TSPCA’s centre, they are diagnosed and treated. They provide alternative treatment along with allopathy medicines. They also focus on the diet of the animals and design it as per their nutritional needs and availability in forests after release.
