Supported by 25 staff members and a cohesive group of 7 Managing Committee members, we have treated more than 1,50,000 domestic and wild animals and birds since our inception in 2002. Every year we treat an average of 16,000 animals through our hospital and mobile clinic services.
During the pandemic our expenses increased multifold as we had to disburse extra amounts to the feeding of street animals, procured operational materials at much higher prices and arranged for staff welfare. We braved through all of it without stopping our services even for a day and reached out to 10,440 animals and birds in the hospital and our ambulance services, including 704 wild animals at our Wildlife Treatment Centre, apart from the several hundreds we helped feed on the streets.
During 2021-2022, we have set a target of treating 1500+ animals, both wild and domestic. Rs 6,50,000/- ( Rs.6.5 lakhs ) is our monthly expenditure to run the organization which includes feeding, treating, rescues, medicines, electricity and salary excluding maintenance. We are aiming to raise 25 Lakhs through this campaign

Thane SPCA does not discriminate when it comes to offering treatment to animals. All animals- big and small, with all kinds of afflictions- minor or serious - are welcome. Every animal is given the same quality of care, including post-op care.
Named after rescuer who spotted her at a bus stop, Aliya was reported to us for urgent help.. This was a not only a very critical surgery, post excision treatment was a challenge, keeping her from removing the stitches. She was almost 2 kilos lighter when she was released to where she belonged, a month later, and seems to be upset at losing what she was holding on to for dear life, till now. But for us, this was a Happywala homecoming. Always grateful to our sponsors like you who keep our work going.
We do not know for sure HOW this happened, we were told it was a series of blows with an iron rod. But we do know for sure that this is one gentle, cooperative dog who didn’t whimper once while he was being treated, cleaned and fed. At the time of his rescue, we did not know for sure WHAT the outcome would be. In fact there was a slump in the otherwise positive outlook of our staff, looking at the broken mandible and the humongous blood loss. But we knew for sure that we were grateful to the Universe for allowing us to serve him, who suffered so much without reason.
We named him Veer. The crucial 72 hrs passed, and he fought valiantly against pain and infections after the external fixation our surgeon performed in a 3 hr procedure. After 2 months with us, he was adopted by one of our staff, who had tended to him at the hospital during his treatment. Veer, now Veeru to us, has moved us not only because of the nature of cruelty, but because of his gentleness and resilience, because he embodies in himself an example of human cruelty and human kindness.
We need to reach out to 1000s more Aliyas and Veerus. Won’t you join us in helping animals in need?
