“Treasure” finally receives family planning…

Varanasi, June 14, 2014 – Imagine you are taking care of a community “street” dog in India however there is no vet available when she needs to receive family planning! Ms. Bhawana of Varanasi writes about her beloved dog: “Here is Treasure and for the last four years she has been given birth to puppies every year outside the flat of the caretaker. Everytime I used to take care of them of initially for 3-4 months but as they start moving out of my house they were either thrown away from my apartment or were poisoned. But thanks God now she has been sterilized by Varanasi for Animals camp and is fine now.”

Kudos to the Ranchi HOPE and Animal team, Dr Upendra, Mr Nandan and Mr Sunil. And a big thanks to the Varanasi For Animals group, Ms Bhawana, Ayushee, and Niketan.

The team was able to operate 6 females and 4 Males on June 13 and 14, 2014.

At this camp we were able to help a few animals while thousands continue to suffer. Imagine the trauma a female dog gets when she is followed by 15 + male dogs – when she is in heat. And then caring and raising her pups without any support.

We are starting these spaying and vaccination camps again after a year long absence due to lack of funds and cooperation. Please give your support and we will try our best!

April 7, 2013 – It was an early morning for our staff and volunteers today! At 5 am our team got ready to prepare VFA’s second Animal Birth Control camp at our clinic in Assi Ghat. With the help of Dr Ajay and Vinod a total of four dogs were spayed, neutered and vaccinated.

Before starting the second ABC camp, an education camp was held at the ghat. A banner was prepared by a group of young volunteers – thank you! Countless people were made aware of the important of animal welfare in general, and spaying and neutering in particular.

The surgeries were performed by Dr. Vinod Jaiswal and Dr. Ajay Singh performed the surgeries. Dr Vinod has practiced at Blue Cross at Chennai and Dr Ajay has been volunteering with us since a long time.

Today was very successful day for all of us at Assi. Hope with all your support we will organise many more camps!

Consultant veterinarians Dr. Ajay Singh and Dr. Vinod Jaiswal will be on call to help with complicated cases and surgeries.

VFA organises dog health camp at Assi Ghat

January 5, 2013 – Today Varanasi for Animals, with the support of Hope & Animal, Ashray for Animals and Animal Nepal, organised a health camp for dogs at the holy city’s famous Assi Ghat. Dr Ajay Singh and Oqaish Murtaza treated a number of dogs and conducted four spaying surgeries at a makeshift surgery room cum holding area.

The camp faced a number of problems, including extremely cold weather and logistical delays. One dog developed an allergic reaction to the anaesthesia and could not undergo surgery. However, as it was our first official camp, we consider it to be a very useful experience.

Facebook and Polio, two of the dogs who underwent surgery, stayed at the makeshift holding area and were kept warm with carpets and jute bags. They were bouncing with energy in the morning, and happy to return to their ‘home’ in front of Ashish Guest house.

We like to thank all organisations, veterinarians and volunteers involved!
