On-site First Aid, Treatment & Vaccination Service for Street Animals/Dogs

 

JAAGRUTI™’s  On-site First Aid, Treatment &Vaccination Service for Street Animals/Dogs*

Primary area of Operation: North-West Delhi, India

If you stay in any other part of Delhi NCR and want to avail of this service, do let us know, we will try if its possible or let you know.

These services are available to best treat a street animal on his/her street itself.

We don’t run an ambulance or a shelter/hospital service for animals and thus request you, however, to read this page thoroughly, and only then send us an email on firstaid@jaagruti.org

(Started:  July 2014 onwards)

We have our stock of medical supplies, and a team comprising of trained Veterinary Pharmacist, assistants and consultant vets on Board for this programme.  Below are described the various aspects of this service and our SOP (Standard Operating Procedure)* as on 10th July 2014.  Please read the below text carefully before you REQUEST our Services.

 

 

  1.  Why did we start this On-site First Aid & Treatment Service for Street Animals/Street Dogs?
  • Because a horrifying number of Street dogs and other animals suffer (and tragically die) as a result of lack of prompt medical attention and resulting life-threatening aggravation of the most minor of wounds, injuries or infections. For example: a minor scratch, if treating with the right topical applications promptly and regularly over a few days, will prevent it from turning into a ‘rotting’ maggot wound.
  • Because we think most minor injuries or infections are best treated on the street, i.e. the animal’s own territory or area, in which the animal is most at ease and comfortable.
  • Because we think that sending an animal to a hospital for a minor injury or infection is not the RIGHT thing to do, as the lack of space in a hospital and the stress of too many animals in there only stresses the injured animal further and there is always a chance that the dog you have sent to the hospital for a minor injury or ailment will contract secondary infections at the hospital/shelter – which may result in complicating their condition further.

 

  1. What kind of cases will, WE at the JAAGRUTI™ On-site First Aid & Treatment Service WILL register and try to treat?
  • We will provide on-site medical services for street dogs/street animals, being looked after by COLONY ANIMAL CARETAKER/COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE suffering from either of the following:

o   Minor wounds

  • including wound dressing and dressing/bandaging of fractured limbs

o   Minor injuries

o   Skin conditions

o   Maggot wounds

o   Fever/Cough/Limping Dogs

o   Eye or Ear Infections like Pus in the Ear

o   Or any other case that we have the expertise of treating efficiently

o   Disclaimer: If any of the above mentioned ailment is serious and beyond the mere administration of first aid, we will politely say ‘Sorry’ and request you to take the Street Dog/animal to the nearest vet of your choice or an animal hospital.

 

  1. What kind of cases, WE at the JAAGRUTI™ On-site First Aid & Treatment Service WILL NOT register and treat?
    • If the Street dog/animal is showing symptoms of Rabies, Distemper or Contagious Skin Infection (as determined by the First Aid team in consultation with vets on phone at the time of on-site visit) we will NOT treat them in any way.
    • Street dog/animal with VG (Vaginal Granuloma) or TVT (Transmissible Venereal Tumour) requiring Administration of Chemotherapy Drugs like Vincristine. (Though, we have treated these cases successfully, the role of the caretaker is immense if such treatment is requested for on the street for atleast 2 weeks post administration of the Chemotherapy Drug. So, please connect with us to discuss such a case and we will take a call on whether or not to  consider it on a case to case basis)
    • Street Dog/animal with Tumours or Serious Road Accident hit cases/Paralysed Dogs, needing life saving surgeries for removal of tumour or limb amputation surgeries, as the case may be.
    • Street dog/animal with Suspected Kidney/Liver Infection – we may/will do the initial emergency medication keeping in mind the dog’s physical condition/visible symptoms at the time of our team’s visit, but our Team would request you for Blood Tests/Kidney and/or Liver Function Tests to be done and the treatment protocol as listed by the Veterinarian of your choice to provide para-veterinary services to administer those drugs through Intramuscular or Intravenous routes, as the case may be.

 

  1. How to register a On-site First Aid & Treatment Service Request?
    • JAAGRUTI’s On-site First Aid & Treatment Service, is not a nonfigurative or online service. It is something tangible and concrete that will require you to stay involved and see through the first aid treatment being administered to your reported animal. You need to be with the street dog/animal throughout our team’s presence at your reported site, and also help restrain/handle it while the medical treatment is being administered. Read Point No. 5 as well.
    • You can request First Aid for a street dog/animal you care for by sending us an email on firstaid@jaagruti.org. You can also fill the form below. If you prefer to e-mail us then do try to e-mail us photos and case history of the animal as well to help us plan the dog’s/animal’s treatment regimen better. No SMS or WhatsApp to generate an initial first-aid request will be accepted.
    • We will try our best to serve you within 24 hours of your First Aid request being received, provided you agree to all our terms and conditions. Delays, if any, would be communicated to you. We are just starting out on this, so there may be a few initial hiccups or logistics issues that we may face. We promise to be as efficient and professional in delivering this First Aid Service for Street Dogs/animals
    • While calling/e-mailing us/filling the First Aid Request form, please give complete details required – your name, mobile number and address is mandatory, your email ID is preferred

  1. What are the responsibilities of the CALLER requesting our team for On-site First Aid & Treatment Service for a street animal in need?
    • The presence of the CALLER/COLONY ANIMAL CARETAKER reporting the street animal in need is MANDATORY throughout the duration of the First Aid being administered by our team on-site to the animal in need.
    • It is also MANDATORY that the CALLER/COLONY ANIMAL CARETAKER helps restrain/handle the street animal while it is being administered first aid medicines. We are NOT a CATCHING SERVICE that will go out looking for Dogs/animals in your area that need the required first aid treatment, so call us only if you are confident that you can handle the animals while it is being administered injections/medicines as part of the First Aid Treatment for the reported ailment.

JAAGRUTI’s STREET DOG & CAT VACCINATION SERVICE*

Major Highlights*

  • Branded vaccines (Anti-Rabies Vaccines and 9-in-one), COLD CHAIN maintained and at reasonable rates will be administered to the street dogs you care for, on the street that they live.
  •  An Annual Colony Street Dog Vaccination Card (signed by a Registered Veterinary Practitioner) will be issued to the Colony Animal Caretaker who takes the initiative to get the street dogs in their area/looked after by them vaccinated – with all vaccine stickers- firmly pasted inside for each dog (identified by its Sex/Colour/Sterilization Status etc.).

    • Dear Sonam, we can assist in handling by giving you a leash and then helping muzzle him but the caller has to initiate it and help restrain the dog else how will an unwell dog allow strangers to hold and treat him. Please understand we don’t catch them as we don’t have to take them anywhere…so its all about handling them well on location so that they can be treated, administered medicines on site.

  5. Hello I am from Kolkata and a huge lover of stray dogs..I have adpoted 12 stray dogs.I do feed them regularly got them sterilized at my own cost and also vaccinate them from time to time…But some of neighbours always harrass me and threaten me to complain in the corporation so that they take away the dogs…They state all sorts of nonsense problems that they are barking making noise all the time making shit all over the road.etc etc…But the truth is that having adopted them i keep them inside my house premises most of the time to protect them from cold rain heat etc.where they rest..Out of 24 hrs they are hardly outside fr maximum three to four hours in a day..They hav their meals thrice a day only aftr evry meal they r let out by us so that they can go fr their toilet outside…Even at night i keep them withn my house premises so that they dont bark and neighbours are nt disturbed.So i am completely against such nonsensical
    complains of my neighbour as i believe dat if i hadnt adopted them their count had increased a lot as nobody wud hav taken the initiative to sterilize them at one s own cost…Also they wud hav been a menace as nobody would have vaccinated them frm time to time…By sterilising and vaccinating them properly i am keeping the entire neighbourhood safe at the same time giving the dogs as good life as possible.With regard to the complain of barking and making shit in the road i believe its their natural instinct to bark whenevr they see anything uncanny…That ensures our safety only..no one undrstands this.As i keep them sheltrd most of the times as i had mentiond people only hs to bear with the barking only fr few hours in a day…And as far as d shit is concerned it is their natural habitat so it is quite normal that they will make shit at places in the road which will be duly cleard by the sweeper appointd by corporatn evry morning with other garbages..what is there in this to get to so hyper i dont get..Their threatenings have forced us appoint one sweeper at our own cost to clean all the shit of the road be it of my dogs or nt…Dis is absolutely unfair and unjustified..Following all these i am facing problems from family who are refusing to support my cause and forcing me to abandon all of them.I seriously dnt want the dogs to suffer just because of the nonsense attitude of the silly neighbours.please suggest me some legal aid to tackle this problem..

  6. Is Municipal Corporations are allowed to catch Stray or Street dog whose age is one year or below for Name Sterilization ?

    If not why Virar-Nalasopara-Vasai Municipal Corporation. Thane District of Maharashtra Western Suburban of Mumbai (India) catch such Small age Dogs ?

    The Contractor or Municipal officers told they have power to catch such dogs, I thought here a big scandal going on in between Contractors and officers to show only No.s and make Monetary benefit.

    Another Secret Mission is going on this area to kill stray Dog is they catch small Dogs with help of couple of big Dogs, after they catch such Dogs telling people on the spot or in ward offices that they will send back to same spot.But I monitor since long time once they catch such Dogs after never seen in the area.when asked the officers they put the responsibility Sterilization Hospital of Municipality, when asked Hospital They put the onus to contractors.

    When people complaint to Municipal corporation about this Big Dogs they send Contractors and they catch Innocent small Dogs.

    When I was spoke to some higher police officers they told reality that these Stray Dogs are helping Police to prevent unknown or suspected person entering the area therefore these Dogs presence is good for public and Police.

    But they told they can’t prevent Municipal corporation to catch such Dogs because Law prevent them, because this Stray Dogs matter come under Municipal act which police don’t have jurisdiction. only police can charge Municipal authorities if there is any Dog found dead.

    Municipal authority officers are very claver. they put such so called Sterilization centers near the crematorium, these dead bodies of Dogs they destroy in Night time, therefore police of people not to get any clue about kill the Dogs.

    The Municipal commissioner have no time to here these serious matter. when I was tried to contact him he refused accept calls.

    I appeal to all take this matter seriously to Government or judicial level and save live of these innocent animals.

    • No, the Municipality can ONLY sterilise and vaccinate Street dogs and they HAVE to return them to the place where they picked them up from post recovery from sterilisation surgery. Killing street dogs is illegal as per Indian Penal Code’s Section 428 and 429 and Section 11(1) of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and orders of Honourable Supreme Court of India

    • We are assuming Friendicoes Animal Hospital gave you the number of Anita Private Animal Ambulance service. She is the person to call in East Delhi. Alternatively, you could have waited with the dog, posted a rescue appeal for volunteers in SPCA Noida Facebook group and arranged for a vehicle to transport the dog yourself to Friendicoes.
