Medical Relief for Street Animals in Thane.
  • Crisis: 17 years ago, animal welfare facilities in Thane were very poor. Thousands of injured street animals had no veterinary facilities to turn to. This is when Thane SPCA started its ameliorative program for street animals.
  • Programs: Thane SPCA runs the district's only animal hospital (which can house up to 100 animals) with the support of 4 ambulances (including 2 for cattle), an Intensive Care Unit (ICU), fully equipped surgery and radiology departments, and X-ray facilities. It also carries out sensitization programs and has a legal team to prosecute against animal cruelty. Lodging and quarantine facilities are available for all animals. Stray animals are treated free of cost and other animals are treated at a nominal cost.
  • Outcome: Holistic services provided to more than 96,000 animals since inception and hundreds of animals have been successfully rehomed. Their radiology department treats around 1,500 animals and birds every month.
