Animal Rescue Service

We have two ambulances that rescue sick homeless animals, animals injured in road accidents, or animals which have collapsed on the street, in need of help.

Call our ambulance or rescue services, to report sick or injured animals, or animals in distress

  Please note this is not a private ambulance service for pet animals.

  • The ambulance working hours are 9am to 5pm.
  • Only emergencies after working hours, handled by Rescue Volunteers.
  • The organization remains closed from 5pm to 9am and visitors will not be permitted inside the shelter.
  • If you find and bring an injured animal from the street after closing time, kindly hand it over to the security guard and fill the admission form.

Thank you for helping the animal!

What can you do until the rescue team arrives or cannot come for any reason?

  • You could keep it safe, calm and quiet till our rescue team arrives.
  • Offer it some food, water and first aid. Be careful as the animal could bite from fear.
  • An injured bird can be kept safe in a cage or cardboard box with ventilation holes.
  • You may also show it to your local veterinarian for treatment.
  • You may send or bring in the injured animal to our shelter yourself.

Animal friendly citizen Bhuvaneswari called us to rescue a dog that had its head stuck in a plastic jar. With the dog being shy of humans and hiding in a large office campus, catching him posed a challenge. Our volunteers, Anusha, Pradeep, Ram and Hema along with Teja our Technical Rescue Coordinator, woke up at 5.00 AM to go search for the dog - this was required as dogs usually come out between 6.00 AM and 8.00 AM during summers and rest during the hot day. Our awesome volunteers succeeded in cornering the dog and he was freed from the jar. Please remember to crush plastic bottles so that thirsty animals do not get stuck in them! To report an animal that needs help, call us on 040 - 3298 9858 or 99666 29858! #ThursdayTails !

IF HE CAN, WHY CAN'T WE ? SAVE WATER - PLZ SHARE "MAY" is hotter and the headline in today's paper was depleting ground water resources in Hyderabad and a potential crunch in water supply forecasted. It's time we buckle up and start "monkeying" around our responsibility towards water conservation. Watch this video to understand what we mean! We certainly evolved from the right species- somewhere we lost touch. But we can reconnect, right?
