Focus: Animal Welfare
Thank you! You can rest assured your contribution will be used to make a real difference
FROM humble beginnings, Thane SPCA have grown to be an animal hospital with an operation theatre, medical wards and essential facilities like digital X-ray. Animals brought in are mostly hit-and-run victims, suffering from diseases such as distemper and skin ailments, or severely dehydrated. Some animals with transmissible diseases have to be quarantined. The three ambulances are able to provide injured animals on-the-spot aid, before determining if they have to be taken to the hospital.
THANE SPCA employ legal aid in cases of cruelty against street animals by housing societies and others, and even in cases of abusive pet owners. Notice is served to the assailants, leading to a police case. The legal cost comes to 1 lakh per year. At the government level, TSPCA work to implement existing laws and draft new ones. Workshops and awareness programmes for administrative authorities like the police are conducted to upgrade their knowledge of animal protection laws.
This is not an animal hospital only, this is our extended family. The staff and management treat us as their own.
I noticed a stray dog whining because of a severe injury near its tail. I tried all the famous animal care institutions. Finally Thane SPCA turned up with their team and treated the dog but did not accept any money in return. Hats off to Thane SPCA!
I love the facility. The ambience makes you feel very homely and comfortable. It is so refreshing to see the genuine care and enthusiasm of the staff for their work. This effort is commendable.
I feel the initiative taken by this organization is spectacular. The visit to the place really made me realise the extent to which animals need our help. I would love to come and visit such a facility every day.
We got more than we expected from the Thane SPCA. Doctors and staff are very helpful and communicative. They are doing a great job.
