Giving Tuesday – Also for Animals Now!

Giving Tuesday is a global phenomenon with 98 participating countries. Philanthropists all over the world share their end-of-the-year wealth and labour on this particular day. In India, where the event is also known as Daan-Utsav, a portal brought corporates, individual donors and NGOs on the same platform and connected them. On October 3rd 2017, India gave of her wealth. And this year, animals received just as much as other beneficiaries. Thane SPCA reached out to donors through #Givenow and appealed for the funding of an Intensive Care Unit for street animals. In no time, with the support of matching grants from Mastek Foundation, and peer-to-peer fundraising technique, the much needed amount was raised and the ICU was completed in early January 2018.

Most of our patients come to us in advanced stages of trauma and illness, and till now, we used our Surgery for isolation of the animals and administration of special care. However, this was never the ideal situation and a separate unit was considered essential for advanced pain management or complex fluid or drug therapy. Critical care patients who have a good chance of survival with adequate support, need a centrally-equipped ICU. Thane SPCA ICU will offer treatments that cannot be given in the normal wards. This will include equipment like:

  • Multipara
  • Suction Pump
  • Infusion set
  • Incubator

To our donors, who responded on #Daanutsav for this specific project, and those who help us the year round, we remain deeply grateful. Your charities continue to change the lives of multitudes of animals for the better.

In gratitude,
