The Blue Cross of India is one of India’s most recognised animal welfare organisations and the first of a new genre of organisations that looks after the welfare of all kinds of animals. Blue Cross of India is home to dogs, cattle and birds and many more creatures. They are orphaned, abandoned, old, injured, abused and physically disabled by speeding vehicles and cruel minds. At Blue Cross of India we not only house animals and care for them, we take them to our heart. Our activities include shelters, rehoming, adoption, hospitals & mobile dispensary, ambulance services and work with other NGOs since 1964.


The volume of our task in 2015:

32960 animals and birds treated, 5637 animals rescued via our ambulance service, 15604 dogs and  402 cats spayed and vaccinated with over 1400 animals are present in our Guindy  shelter at any point of time and over 100 cattle and  50 dogs in our Kunnam Shelter and a further 45 dogs at our Toducadu shelter.

Snake Rescue



Blue Cross has always focused on Indian dogs as pets since we believe that they're the ideal pets for our Indian conditions. No less than a pedigree, or sometimes even better, when it comes to being a lovable companion.




There are millions of stray and homeless animals in India today. The Blue Cross does what is practically possible to control these numbers in a humane way for e.g. by adopting procedures such as Animal Birth Control.
