ABC and ARV drives at Chavara Grama Panchayat

As per an MoU with the Chavara Grama Panchayat, People for Animals, Kollam Chapter has been conducting ABC (Animal Birth Control) and ARV (Anti Rabies Vaccine) programs for 200 dogs. The project was initiated on 6 December 2011, and successfully completed on 12 January 2012. The expenses were shared 50% by the Animal Welfare Board of India, and 50% by the Grama Panchayat, with the Kollam Chapter of the People for Animals voluntarily managing the logistics, arranging veterinary doctors and dog catchers, surgical materials, medicines, and the use of our Animal Ambulance.

Animal Rescue and Relocation

Seven dogs were rescued from the premises of Mata Amritanandamayi Math. People for Animals Kollam chapter took the dogs to the Valaya Checkpost in our animal ambulance, and a vehicle from the India Project for Animals and Nature (IPAN) came and took them to the IPAN shelter. Our life member Priyankari (a die-hard animal lover) accompanied the dogs.

Status of the Shelter

The PfA Shelter has been in slow but steady construction for a while now. Construction has been solely dependent on donations and contributions from various individuals, and in part by grants.

As it stands, the building is ready to be used; only external finishing is pending, and will be completed when funds are available.

The compound wall has been completed.

The well has been dug, and is supplying water reliably.

The kennels are underway. Due to a scarcity of available funds, money has been allocated to them from a yet-to-be delivered grant (awarded in principle, but pending budget allocation), and from the external finishing of the building.
