About Freedom Farm - Our Animal Shelter
• Freedom Farm is a humble abode being built by Citizens For Animal Protection Foundation for all kinds of animals.
• This is in association with Yeoor Environmental Society working in the space of environment conservation.
• It is located on the outskirts of Thane City, near Waghbil Gaon.
• Our goal is to create a self-sustaining shelter where we plan to create a structure which could help us generate all the basic resources within.
• We are working towards creating a sustainable structure in collaboration with an organization called ‘MEE’.
- We aim to create a shelter which can provide necessary treatment to not just small but large animals as well,
- Unfortunately, there is no animal shelter in thane which can keep animals and provide necessary treatment.
- We aim to make one by setting up a critical care centre at our shelter which will help us provide necessary treatment to all the injured and sick animals at the shelter itself.
Current requirement at freedom farm
- Critical care centre: a critical care centre is a need of hour as it’ll help us treat injured and sick animals which are reported to us everyday then and there itself. Time is extremely important in extreme situations; it can help us save a life and increase the chances of recovery.
- An ambulance for small animals – response time is extremely important in any rescue operation, unavailability of vehicle specially during these lockdown situations waste a lot of time. These delays sometimes cost an animal their life. Some minutes can increase the chances of survival of any injured animal.
- A tempo for large animals – there is no facility or resources available for large animals like cow, bull, horses, camel, pigs and more. To rescue an injured large animal, it takes us hours before we can provide them necessary treatment. It is extremely important for us to have a vehicle to transport these beautiful large animals to save their lives.
- Temporary shed for large animals- as monsoon is around the corner, temporary shed for large animals is required. The number of cases are increasing day by day so the arrangement needs to be made as soon as possible.
About some injured animals under our care
1. Bhui (Cow)
Bhui was reported to us from wahgbil, thane west, she was dehydrated, collapsed at the spot and wasn’t able to get up. She had a few wounds on her leg and was in urgent need of medical attention.
With help of locals, we managed to get her to our shelter, after 12 hours of struggle. At the shelter, we observed her stomach being weirdly bloated and she had fever (104°). After proper examination from the vet, we started her due treatment and medication. We started feeding her bhussa and chunni, but she absolutely refused to eat that. For 2 days she was not eating anything. On the 3rd day, she ate a little bit of hay. Later we started her on green fresh grass, which she did accepted and ate a little, not as expected though. 3 days back she totally stopped eating again and had loose motions. She’s critical and under constant observation.
2. Gauri (Cow)
Gauri was roaming in the areas around our shelter. The locals told us about her being pregnant which led to us getting her to the shelter. Due to roaming around in the areas, she didn't have a stable diet which affected the health and consequently, the health of the baby she was carrying. Due to this, the baby couldn’t survive. After multiple check-ups, we discovered that she has plastic in her stomach which is the primary cause for her ill health. She requires a surgery to get that plastic removed, which could be around 10-20kgs.
3. Cadbury (Abandoned French mastiff Dog)
He’s a French mastiff, a large size dog who needs a lot of attention. Cadbury came to us after being moved to 4-5 different locations. This had a lot of effect on his mental health, which led to him having triggers. He has been at our Freedom Farm for a couple of months. But, due to the covid situation and the manpower crunch, we haven’t had one person consistently to work on his behaviour. He needs constant attention to improve.
4. Chief (Abandoned Doberman Dog)
Chief was abandoned with a huge maggot wound on his leg in Kalwa, near thane about 7 months ago. Since then, he has been in our custody, having overcome many medical issues in the process. Recently, we discovered that his teeth started degrading. On inspection, it was found that he has a Grade III dental disease and he requires to undergo a procedure to get them treated.
5. Emma, Emily and Rachel (Orphan Puppies )
These 3 pups are part of a litter of 7 we had rescued in Thane after their mother was taken away by a leopard in Patlipada, thane. We hand raised them as they were just a week old.
6 months on, these 3 remain with us. They are completely healthy and fit to go their permanent home through adoption.
6. Estel (Specially abled Kitten)
We received a call from Wagle Estate, Thane about a severely injured kitten who was attacked by two stray dogs. When we reached the spot, she was barely moving. Upon the initial examination, it was highlighted that her spine had broken in that attack and she will never be able to walk again with multiple lifelong complications. She is currently undergoing multiple treatments fro her hind legs, sip disk, virginal infection and more.
7. Other Specially Abled Animals
We have multiple animals under our care which are paralyzed & blind. They require a lot of care and constant medical attention. We are trying to treat them and get them rehabilitated in the best way possible.
8. Other Rescue cases
On an average we receive 15 calls per day for injured and sick animals across the city. Some of them are critical and require surgery while others need constant care and medical attention.
Some are at our shelter and will be rehabilited after necessary treatment.
We require you support to continue functioning for the animals in need.
