ANIMALS MATTER TO ME,.
We are a NGO consisting of pro-bono individuals working towards welfare of stray animals,birds and reptiles in Mumbai, Navi mumbai & beyond . Our main area of work is rescues, accident cases, re-homing abandoned/lost pets, aiding individuals who care for strays in their respective localities, mass sterilizations, feeding programs for strays and in general cater for stray welfare. We run a rehabilitation home for stray cats called CATZILLA, its a place for accident cases, paralytic, blind cats, nervous disorder cases and many more such cases which need immediate medical help. We also have a low cost veterinary clinic by the name ECOVET, which treats all animals at a minimum cost. We also have a state of the art ambulance called ' HOSPITAL ON WHEELS', which is fully equipped with an ECG machine, Gas anesthesia, Multi-parameter for vital stats, Dental rotary kit and OT apparatus for surgeries. We also have another ambulance which does pick up and service for all kind of cases.
A few milestones we have achieved in the last 3 years of inception are.. sterilizing 70 stray cats in a TB Hospital in Parel,Mumbai.More than 753 animals treated on an average basis for the last three years.A very brutal acid attack on a stray dog.. which eventually succumbed to its injuries. A very recent case is of Bijlee, a 58 year old female elephant in Mulund,Mumbai which was neglected & illtreated by its owners for begging and making money. With the help of our donors we have sterilized close to 395 cats in our ambulance..'hospital on wheels', all without any Municipal help or Grant.. Sterilization program for more than 350 stray dogs every six month via tie ups with private vets on low cost basis. Rabies, vaccination & awareness drives every fortnight with the help of locals from respective areas of call received for help.
Animal welfare matters to animals, people and the environment. How animals are treated matters both to animals and to people.
This concept is part of a broader understanding of the interdependence of all living things. There is however, currently no formal, global recognition of the importance of animal welfare and it is time to correct this. we have been sensitizing the same through our mass awareness programs and school programs.
Human Health - Good animal welfare reduces the risk of diseases transmissible to humans (zoonoses) and improves food safety; the human-animal bond also has therapeutic effects.
Social Development - people's attitudes and behavior towards animals overlap with their attitudes and behavior towards each other.
Poverty and Hunger reduction - looking after animals improves their productivity and helps farmers to provide food for their families and the community.
Disaster Management - animals are important in people's lives and for their livelihoods, and must be considered in disaster preparedness and response.
Environmental Sustainability - responsible animal management affects land use, climate change, pollution, water supplies, habitat conservation and biodiversity for the better.
