Thane SPCA had some very special visitors in the month of April 2002.
Out of a whole lot of abused animals that were rescued from a farm in Delhi, a batch of 8 started for their new home in and around Mumbai.
A 3 day travel co-ordinated between several Animal Shelters en route ensured that the animals entered Maharashtra in one piece each.
Thane SPCA gave them a home for a month, fed, bathed and rejuvenated them, while the search for their new homes was on. These were large dogs like St Bernards, Sindhi and Bully Kuttas and a Mudhol Hound.
They were treated for their medical conditions and sterilized and vaccinated, and once they were on their 4 paws, they went to their FOREVER HOMES one by one. 7 organisations spanning 4 states worked hand in hand, working out meticulous details to ensure that each of the 32 animals rescued in 2 lots could make it hale and hearty after a lifetime of abuse.
