New Animal Rehab Centre
Why a new centre?
We’ve been very lucky to have had landlords who have endorsed and supported our vision over the last ten years. However, as we’ve grown we would like to invest in the future of the organization by training and developing the next generation of caregivers. The logical next step was to be able to have a place that we can call our own too.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve identified a plot of land not far from our current Rehab Centre in Malad, Mumbai. We’re chalking out the designs and plans for this new facility and plan to operate this in conjunction with the Animal Sanctuary in Kolad.
What’s at the new facility?
Medical Facilities & Services
Our aim to provide world class medical services and facilities to pet owners and stray and abandoned animals. These would include timely examinations and treatment, surgical interventions, nutritional consultancy, Isolation wards for Infectious diseases and hospitalisation wards for primary rehabilitation of pets.
To ensure that the animals are treated in the correct manner, we will have an in-house team of expert, passionate and ethical veterinary doctors from different faculties. This will help in timely diagnosis, effective treatment and speedy recovery of the animals.
We will have an exclusive diagnostic centre within facility to provide immediate diagnostic services. We will add advanced diagnostic tools such as X-ray, ultrasound, blood analyser, laparoscopy, kidney dialysis unit among others in a phased manner. Our mission is to serve more animals & improve their quality of life in a cost effective manner.
It is of utmost important to create awareness, imbibe love for and be passionate towards the animals. We are planning to impart trainings to animal lovers to create an awareness on key pet welfare issues like vaccination, nutritional requirement, neutering etc. to create more aware and compassionate citizens for the future.
It is essential to provide hands-on training and practical experience for budding veterinarians to make them future ready. In association with universities and brands we are planning to conduct hands on training courses not only for veterinarians but also for staff required in veterinary services.
Besides hospitalisation, we will also have a primary rehabilitation shelter for strays and abandoned pets. We will also organise an adoption drive to promote adoption of abandoned animals so that they can get a loving forever homes. Special needs animals will be housed at our upcoming cageless sanctuary in Vitthalwadi near Kolad.
