Activities

Animal rescue

CARE is equipped with a medical ambulance which picks animals in distress off the streets and brings them to the outpatient department for immediate medical attention. Apart from the ambulance, CARE also accepts individual rescuers who bring ill, injured & abandoned animals directly to the shelter and admits them for further treatment.

Animal rehabilitation

Once the animal is diagnosed and provided with immediate & emergency treatment which includes surgery, amputation and other life saving procedures as required, the animal is housed in the treatment section where he /she is allowed to recuperate and recover with constant monitoring by the team of vets. Healing & Restoring of functionality is the prime mission of our rehabilitation efforts where physiotherapy and laser therapy are employed when necessary to speed up the process. They are also provided with wholesome food with protein supplements to hasten the recovery process.

Adoptions & Release

Following the completion of treatment & recovery, community animals are dropped back in the area where they were picked up from. Abandoned pet dogs are moved to the adoption unit, where they are socialized and made ready for adoption to a good home. New pet parents are screened, counselled & matched with the pet that is right for them & their family. Follow up checks with strict protocol is followed so the animal is ensured of a good life.

Humane Education & Awareness

At the heart of any welfare activity, lies education & awareness.
While rehabilitation & rescue efforts are ongoing & necessary, it can be equated to mopping up after an open tap. Education efforts can be likened to closing the tap. With more awareness & sensitizing the citizens of tomorrow, there can be far reaching, long term and positive consequences for animals and mankind. To achieve this we have 2 programs:

The Young Angels Program sponsored by Mars International Pvt Ltd. Our education officer visits schools and engages with children introducing the seed of animal welfare, safe coexistence with community animals and other simple concepts related to animals.

Charlie’s Pack. An intensive, specially designed curriculum program where interested school children visit the shelter on a weekly/ monthly basis and are introduced to concepts in animal welfare in a simple, comprehendible form including practical and hands on activities that inculcate the values of compassion, empathy & responsibility towards animals & each other.

Canine & Feline therapy

Charlie, our mascot and inspiration , himself is a therapy dog who has worked as a therapist with the children of Vishwas, a school for differently abled children run by the Indian Air Force, Srishti Special Academy & KaraforKids. His new vocation lasted for about 8 years where he helped these children gain confidence at social interactions.

His legacy is being carried forward by our other therapy dogs who are observed and chosen for their gentle demeanor & trained as canine therapists.

Community Outreach & Events

At Care, we believe that there must be constant interplay between the shelter and our society & community, as it can be a mutually beneficial exercise. Hence we have several events both at the shelter premises and outside. The stakeholders of these events vary over a wide range from children, adults, corporate companies, art connoisseurs, music lovers, and pet parents.

The events range from summer camps, storytelling, corporate day outs, art exhibitions, book sales, music concerts, garage sales, flea markets & so on.
