Water bowl for animals & birds
The Water Bowl Project is an annual initiative conducted by the Blue Cross of India since 2013 to provide some comfort to homeless animals in this unforgiving summer. The lack of clean drinking water leads to dehydration and finally the death of thousands of homeless animals and birds in our city. Here is a chance to help the animals and birds in your street in a small way.
During 2018, Blue Cross of India has distributed around 1500 cement water bowls around Chennai city and its outskirts.
The water bowl project, one of the major projects of Blue Cross of India, aims to provide cement water bowls during every summer to Chennai city’s residents who wish to quench the thirst of animals on the streets (Dogs, Cows & Buffalos, Birds etc.,)
The bowls procured from potters in the city are made of cement and can hold up to 5 litres of water. They are then painted with lead-free paint to provide clean & safe drinking water. The bowls are distributed around the city on request from animal lovers who take extra care to quench the thirst of animals in their locality. The bowls are picked up free of cost from Blue cross of India shelter in Velachery or home delivered at a nominal cost of Rs. 99/- per bowl.
For 2018 we have distributed around 1500 bowls and we wholeheartedly thank our sponsors for making this project possible and our staff & volunteers who worked their extra time to make the bowls ready and this project successful for another year.
Water bowls will be back every year around February.
Roles you can play: (1) Buy a bowl for Rs. 99 only (2) Donate in the form of money, paints or brushes to make more bowls (3) Volunteer at our shelter to paint them. Spread the word! Join the initiative today
