Apart from treating animals, we also try to find a good home for all adoptable animals. A stringent process is followed before handing the animal over to the adoptee, including doing a background check on potential adoptees, collecting their IDs, and doing surprise visits to check on the welfare of the animal. The animals are vaccinated, dewormed and sterilised before being put up for adoption.
A sister concern of PFA, called ROTA has been focusing on the Animal Birth Control surgery of stray dogs in Mysore. Thanks to this programme, we have been able to curb the growth of stray dog population and reduce the incidences of rabies transmission. Over 70,000 animals have been operated on and released. ROTA picks up dogs, gets them sterilised at our shelter and releases them from where they were taken. This ensures that the dogs are not displaced.
We have an outpatient clinic where we attend to cases that do not require hospitalization. Few of the services offered are; Complete health checkup, X Ray facility, UltraSound Facility, Surgical Care, Gynaecological Care, Dermatology, Diagnostic Laboratory Testing, Vaccination and Ambulance Services at subsidised rates. However we treat Indie animals for free no matter what the situation is.
Every month we conduct a free health camp for different animals. Recently our team was in Srirangapatna where horses were vaccinated, dewormed and a general health checkup was done. In addition to it, mineral mixture packets were also distributed. Due to the covid situation, the horse owners didn’t make enough money to get the horses treated. That’s when we stepped in and offered our services.
We have attended emergency cases in places such as H.D.Kote, Mandy, and other villages where we performed emergency surgeries in our ambulance to save lives. We have dealt with animal abuse cases such as neglect and abandonment, to wildlife conflict cases such as mauling of cows, which has been challenging at times, but the satisfaction of saving an animal is immeasurable.
We are looking for your help to buy an ultrasound machine to our shelter which will cost around 10 lakhs rupees. With that machine we can treat the animals much more effectively. We believe in educating the community around us and raising a generation of citizens who are empathetic and kind towards animals. Our team of volunteers create awareness by attending animal abuse cases and bring justice to the voiceless. We are fortunate to have such a supportive community of trustees, volunteers, and vets who work round the clock to save every animal that comes in. We rely on the funds that are donated to our shelter. Without the support of donors and trustees, we cannot function and save animals. Do consider making a donation to us today
