Despite the need for more space, the plan isn't to increase the animal capacity by double. The plan is to streamline the operations, medical facility and boost the sterilisation program.
The new facility will be divided in two parts. One portion will be exclusively the treatment and the quarantine area for critical cases and the rest would be the recovery area along with a small play area for the dogs in our care.
Currently, all the dog rescued and brought to the centre pass through the main gate and the common drive way, which puts the other recovering animals at risk of disease and infection.
At the KAW new centre the treatment area will be a separate unit from the recovery area. Both the units will be divided by a wall and the treatment area would include a special holding area (Quarantine).
At present the new site has three rooms but these will need to be demolished and rebuilt due to structural issues.The cost of building the new centre would be anywhere around 15-20 lacs.
The current facility has a very poor drainage system making it difficult to clean and dispose off the waste matter. The new centre will have a number of drainage locations and water hookups throughout the facilities which is inside the kennels, wash rooms, quarantine areas, etc.
The project would require tremendous support from you all. Other than monetary support we will need a lot of stuff that can be donated in kind. We welcome suggestions from all of you so that we together can build a better facility. We are right now far from an ideal centre but we hope with the new KAW care centre we will be able raise the standards of animal care in the Delhi-NCR region.
The principles on which KAW works will remain the same and our focus will still be on quality. With the new facility our focus will be on increasing the success rate of cases and making sure the mortality rate decreases further.
We will be posting the needs for the new centre through this event page.
