Help us to help Animals

Dear Friend

As a long supporter of the Blue Cross, you are aware that we have not had a special fundraising appeal for more than three years.

However, we urgently need an additional 30 kennels so that we can take in more dogs as in-patients. We have been forced to give priority to the street dog ABC programme of the Corporation of Chennai and all our existing kennels are presently being used for this purpose.

We appeal to our supporters to donate Rs. 5000/- towards a tile in The Millennium Wall. Each 9"x15" marble title on the main entrance wall to this block will have the donor's name engraved on it so that your concern for animals will be there for all to see and emulate.

May we request you to send your donation for Rs.5000/- by cheque drawn favouring BLUE CROSS OF INDIA along with the matter to be engraved on your title. It would be appreciated if the number of words is restricted to 30 to have uniformity of all the tiles. All donations are exempt form Income Tax under Section 80 G.

Thank you and looking forward to your continued support.

Dedicated volunteers have made the Blue Cross of India one of the country's most successful animal welfare organisations. And when you join our volunteer team, you'll find lots of fun and challenging ways to help.

Live and let live! Stop animal cruelty!

Animal cruelty generally falls into two categories: neglect, or intentional cruelty. Neglect is the failure to provide adequate water, food, shelter, or necessary care. Examples of neglect include: starvation; dehydration; inadequate shelter; parasite infestations; failure to seek veterinary care when an animal is in need of medical attention; allowing a collar to grow into an animal's skin; confinement without adequate light, ventilation, space or in unsanitary conditions; and failure to trim hoofs or nails resulting in excessive growth (e.g. hoofs curling upwards). In some cases neglect is a result of the owner's ignorance, and can be rectified by educating the owner.

Equally disturbing as neglect is the brutality of intentional cruelty, involving deliberate physical harm or injury inflicted on an animal. Regretfully, cases of animals being beaten, burned, poisoned or stabbed to death are not uncommon.

In some cases neglect or cruelty is the result of people using animals as tools for commercial profit, such as in the cases of excessive puppy breeding, use of animals in entertainment, animal testing and illegal slaughtering.

Discipline and teamwork always set you a class apart!

Our volunteers of Blue Cross are always ready! They know what to do, when and how to do it! They consistently carry out tactical rescues. They learn ropes and knots, ascending and descending, rappelling, rowing to name a few.

This particular rescue demonstrates how our constant practice helps us in making challenging and risky rescues seem effortless!

Srikanth, Vigneshwar, Raj, Santhosh, Aparna and Daniel attend this 20 feet deep black water rescue. Srikanth and Vigneshwar row their way to rescue an injured dog. Watch how they professionally rescue an injured dog!

OH WILL YOU ADOPT THIS HEAD TILTER ALREADY?

Guaranteed to steal your heart is little Master Timmy. Those eyes. That tilt. Timmy will tilt his head at the click of a camera, at your humming your favourite tune and just about anything. If you ignore him, he'll offer you his paw. Tim Tim is super-cute. And super-smart for his age. He's around three months old. He loves to give you kisses. Tugs at ladies' skirts ( he immediately gets picked up and cuddled!) and oh, if you want that tousled-hair, just-outta-bed look, just show Timmy your head :-). Timmy is a foodie and loves hanging out with older dogs. He's in Chennai. Call 9500058836 to adopt!

Kindness to the whole animal creation is not only a virtue that should be developed but is the ABSOLUTE DUTY OF MANKIND. Children should be taught that nature in all forms is God’s Great Book of Life and respect and be compassionate to all animals.

If you would like to show your kindness to over 1500 animals in our shelter, please help them by supporting us to support them.
