Do your Constitutional duty - show compassion and give!
Thane SPCA have decided to extend their fundraiser so that they can participate in our first #GivingTuesdayIndia campaign!
The funds raised helped in treating 35 injured animals!
Thane SPCA consider providing hospital services for critically ill or injured stray animals to be of utmost importance. Animals are a part of our social and environmental fabric and depend on us to care for them - especially with the help of technology. By providing properly equipped institutional care, injured and sick animals are given specific treatment to relieve them of their distress. Once healthy, they are returned to their territory.WHY IN THANE?
Thane is home to over 2lakh animals. Until a few years ago, very few animal welfare initiatives existed in the area. Polyclinics run by the Animal Husbandry Department had shut down and private practitioners would not entertain treating stray or wild animals - and the need for animal welfare services became imperative. Thane SPCA began by treating animals on the spot, and later built a centre. They now reach out to over 200 animals in a month.
We are called to treat [animals] with kindness, not because they have rights or power or some claim to equality, but in a sense because they don't; because they all stand unequal and powerless before us.
Let us remember that animals are not mere resources for human consumption. They are splendid beings in their own right, who have evolved alongside us as co-inheritors of all the beauty and abundance of life on this planet
First, ambulances will be deployed to rescue animals and bring them to the centre for a diagnosis. If this reveals a need for general medication and recuperation, the animal will be shifted to the shelter. If the patient requires surgical intervention, pathology tests will determine its internal health and surgery procedure. Once the animal is declared fit for discharge, it will be rehomed or released to its original territory.
The funds raised were used for 35 critical care surgeries, including post-surgery medication, surgeons’ fees and food for animals. Three of the surgeries cost ₹15,000. The treatment for rest of the 32 animals came up to approximately ₹ 23,200.
Out of these 35 animals, 26 animals were successfully treated and released.back to their territories. 7 animals, which were medically fit, are either receiving advanced physiotherapy and awaiting adoption or waiting to be picked up by their caretakers.Two animals succumbed to irreparable injuries involving their backbones.
