Critical Care for Injured Animals
Blue Cross of Hyderabad serves clearly demarcated areas for critical care, as it does not have space or capacity to service more than a 15km radius, for West Zone and Central Zones of GHMC. The limited shelter has only 30 kennels to take in injured animals. All other staff and facilities are dedicated to Animal Birth Control for reducing stray animal population.
Animals rescued by volunteers are taken in depending on their prognosis. The volunteers are taught first-aid for treatment of community dogs in their neighbourhood.
To enter an animal in critical care, the individual must discuss the following with the Vet on duty and accept the decision made:
- The animal needs to have a prognosis that clearly sees benefit of treatment and recovery within 6-7 days.
- Have a volunteer or foster care family willing to keep an eye on it when released after 7 days to give follow up first-aid.
- A kennel / space needs to be empty and available to admit the animal.
- Respect working hours.
Note: People forcing the organisation or its staff to take animals that do not fit into this criteria will be recorded on our CCTV cameras and reported to the authorities.
