New Mobile Animal Clinic in Guwahati, Assam, India.

PROJECT LOCATION: Guwahati, Assam India

BACKGROUND:

Situated in the North East corner of India, Guwahati is still a neglected and lagging behind place in India. Still majority of people from even India don’t know where it is and still they thinks that there is only Jungle in this part of the country and land for the terrorist activities. But to describe in short, Guwahati is a very beautiful place with the mighty Brahmaputra and Greeneries and developing very fast like other major Indian cities. Due to these fast developments the people have very less time to think for welfare. There are very few animal welfare organizations working in Guwahati, which is not enough to handle the situation of Street & Stray animals.

THE PROBLEMS:

The stray dog population is increasing day by day, as there is no major ABC program is going on this part of India. As there is increase in the no. of animals there are more cases of accidental injury, skin infection and other diseases prevalent in stray condition. The other animals also suffering due to the city rush and thereby dying without even having a minor veterinary treatment.
 
There are several major problems related to the method of city cattle farming. The cattle were kept for the milk but letting lose to have their own food from the garbage, vegetable waste etc.  From animal welfare point of view, the most striking disadvantage to city farming is related to feeding.

  • As the owners provide no food, the cattle are forced to seek whatever they can from the city itself. This has two principal drawbacks.
  • The animals do not get a diet suitable for their healthy development and sustenance, so malnutrition and starvation is a common sight here.
  • The cattle roam all over Guwahati in search of food, spending many hours each day walking along roads that are busy with cars, Lorries and buses.  Injuries caused by collisions with motor vehicles and injuries to the feet caused by standing on sharp objects account.

 

THE PROJECT AIMS:
 
JBF’s aim is to make the lives of animals more bearable & adorable. JBF is going to do this by providing Free On The Spot Vet Care for those on the streets and by campaigning & lobbying for the better life of those animals in the street or at shelters.

BENEFICIARIES:

  • The Dogs, Cattle and other animals will get the benefit from our work by receiving remedial treatment of any injury or disease and better health in the future from preventative medicines.
  • The cattle owners benefit by having animals those are more productive because they will be in better health.
  • The animals on the street or at the shelters will be benefited by receiving better care as a result of our awareness campaign.

 

METHODOLOGY:
 
Dr. Sashanka is going to take responsibility for all day to day decisions related to running the Mobile Animal Clinic. In this easy communication era this is not going to be a very hard task to manage this project with other projects. We have Two field staffs and they are going to provide the minor veterinary treatments to the animals On the Spot using the motorcycle & bycycles. The team will remain in contact with Hony. vet Dr. Dhruba Das and with Dr. Sashanka over mobile telephone – in this way they can get quick support when needed.

In due course of time we are going to run a mobile van that can pickup the injured animals and can deposit that to a place where they can be look after properly. Until and unless JBF can’t mange a place to keep these animals for treatment we have to inform the organizations now running a treatment home or so.
