Need funds for animals in distress

Focus: Animal Welfare

26% Funded
STRAY animals are vulnerable to traffic injuries, dehydration and starvation. Help fund Thane SPCA's critical care unit for a month @Rs 725 for every street and wild animal that needs emergency treatment.

According to the Constitution, it is the fundamental duty of every Indian citizen to have compassion for all living creatures. However, the condition of stray animals reflects a neglect of this duty, especially by governing bodies.

Support Thane SPCA, who think of animals as “non-human citizens”, run their hospital services - including an operation theatre and ambulance - for the next 200 animals that need care.

All it takes is a little bit from everyone!

WHY HOSPITAL SERVICES FOR ANIMALS MATTER

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.

Matthew Scully, author and journalist, U.S.

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

Marc Bekoff, professor, University of Colorado, U.S.
THE PLAN

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.

Medical practitioners at Thane SPCA ensure the animals have healed before they are released
