55th rescue from Team PFCII since April 2015


On Friday night, Dinesh Baba of Team Pfci was awakened by the cry of this little one who was rescued a couple of days back from the road after her mother got killed in an accident.

Dinesh rushed to see the little one in foster care and was shocked to see a swelling below the right arm. Having no clue of what it is, Dinesh rushed to the Vet at Santhome from his residence in Vandalur.

By 3am, the little one, named Bear, has been admitted & is now under observation. Bear is our 55th rescue since April 2015.

Let’s hope & pray that Bear gets well soon !!
Contributions towards Bear & others are most welcome !

Kind donors required for the treatment of this little one

On June 21 at about 7:45 AM,Team PFCI received a rescue call to their helpline from Mr.Yogesh and Mr.Prabhu that a GSD was abandoned and he was too dehydrated and weak.Team PFCI rushed to the spot and found that the boy was too weak and couldn’t even stand on its own.


The team rescued the GSD and took him for medical examination to Heart 2 Heart Veterinary Hospital,Chennai.After the examination,he was found anemic  and too dehydrated.His heart was pumping low and over all this,he has been diagnosed with Canine Distemper.

The GSD was named Ashok.Ashok has been shifted to the Intensive Unit .The vet said Ashok needs some blood transfusion and when we are on that,a kind and a savior  Raspo  came forward and he met with all the requirements of Ashok.

Now Ashok has been transfused with one unit of blood and he is still battling for his life.

Please come forward to kindly donate for his treatment.

A puppy covered in tar rescued and treated by our team PFCI

Please pray for Thor, the baby boy covered in tar.

It was the midnight of June 22, we got a call from Asuntha that she had rescued a male dog who was fully covered with tar. We promised her that we would take the pup and assured the treatment ASAP.

The next morning, our team member Dinesh met Asuntha, picked the pup and rushed to our vet hospital. We fondly named the pup Thor (after the lightning god, Marvel comic character) and immediately admitted him.

The vets, handlers and Dinesh started cleaning up Thor. It was a Herculean task as the tar had hardened on Thor’s body. Thor is now under intensive care treatment and we are hoping that he would recover fast.

This is how Thor looked after the efforts, love and affection showered upon him by our team and vets.

Our Team PFCI thanks Asuntha for taking Thor home and for putting in great efforts to save him. She applied vegetable oil, gave him a nice massage, fed him and showered him lots of love.

Let’s pray for Thor’s speedy recovery and healthy life.

Four Baby monkies rescued from Marina Beach

On June 16th late evening by 8 PM, People For Cattle in India (PFCI) rescued 4 Baby Monkeys near the Marina beach from a group of People. A complaint about the same was given by Mr Ashwath, a Member of PFCI. A CSR was registered @ the D5 Marina Police Station.

The Monkeys were Harassed, Cruelly treated & Abused by being tied with a metal rope & were made to beg by these People. All the Monkeys looked Famished, Starved Dehydrated & Weak. The people who had this Monkeys as usal fled the place when Police arrived.

These activities of the People who keep Monkeys as performing Animals for the purpose of begging are violating various Laws like,
1. Wildlife Protection Act,
2. Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act,
3. Performing Animals Acts, Rules & Registrations.Indian Penal Code 428 & 429  Etc

At the Police station, the Monkeys were offered Banana, Gauva & Water by PFCI members. The starved Monkeys readily accepted the food. All the Monkeys were tamed & are very friendly with humans. The Rescued Monkeys are given to the Wildlife dept, the Monkeys will treated by the Wildlife & once they are physically fit, they will be Sterilized &will be rehabilitated. This process is not often easy & involves various unforeseen issues. But again this is the only solution available out of not many options.

The sad issue here is the fact that the Monkeys are held in such pathetic conditions in locations like Marina, which are just miles away from the Wildlife department. Wildlife dept needs to get moving & stop this menace. Poor Monkeys are going through immense stress. This issue has be curtailed once for all as this activity of abusing Monkeys doesn’t seem to come down & the frequency at which so many Monkeys are being caught is alarming. Wildlife Dept must act & take steps to save such Monkeys for good & cannot turn a blind eye as always.

Baby Monkeys are often abducted from their Mother when they are very young by these people who use Monkeys for either for performing Tricks as Shows or for Begging. The process of catching the Baby Monkey from the Mother is a very cruel act which often ends in severe injuries to the Mother. The poor helpless Mothers often Die as they are either beaten or poisoned in an attempt to abduct their young ones by the people who later

sell the Baby Monkey for 100s of Rupees to the ones who make them perform or beg on the roadside.

PFCI has Rescued 24 Monkeys in the past 9 months:

1). 1 Baby Monkey on May 6th at MKB Nagar,
2). 4 Monkeys on Aug 3rd at Marina,

Foster parents needed urgently for a beautiful female Rottweiler

Rotty with PFCI team members. Please help find her a home?

Chennai: This is an urgent adoption appeal. Also, we request people to think thoroughly before adopting pets. If they are not capable of handling pets and they think that they won’t be able to take care of the pet any more, at least have the courtesy to contact animal welfare organisation such as People for Cattle in India or any other before abandoning pets. It’s a shameful act to abandon pets on the streets. This is what happened to Rotty.

Mrs. Jaya informed the PFCI team that someone came in a car, dumped this beautiful female rottweiler on the street and fled.  Our team rushed to the spot and rescued her. She, named as Rotty for now, has undergone a health check and is boarded . Rotty is approximately 8-10 months old, active and healthy. She appears to be human friendly and understands basic commands.

How about adopting this gorgeous little one and adding some sunshine to your lives?

Please contact below for further details.

This is how horses we ride on for joy have to suffer

Chennai: On a scorching Saturday afternoon around 3 pm, PFCI team members witnessed a horse on the Besant Nagar beach being made to give joy rides to the visiting public on the seashore. The horse was beaten, pulled and kicked by the horse handlers. The horse was obviously dehydrated and tired because of exertion. The burning Sun only added to the poor horse’s agony. The horse looked weak, famished and dehydrated. The horses were handled by boys less than 18 years old and it was quite evident that the handlers were inexperienced.

The horse’s hind legs were swollen and needed immediate medical attention. PFCI members rushed to the police station and lodged a complaint against the horse owners and handlers. The complaint was based on various violations like,

1. Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act,
2. Performing Animals Acts, Rules and Registrations,
3. Indian Penal Code sections 428 and 429

The police registered the complaint and sent a squad to bring the horse that was abused to the police station. We organized an ambulance to send the horse to the Blue Cross of India shelter at Guindy.

The horse was in very bad health condition. It’s such a pity that the inexperienced horse owners and handlers abuse the horses. A single horse costs somewhere between Rs 50,000 and 70,000. The horses are to be fed quality food and feed per day per horse cost nothing less that Rs 100. Periodical medical help and monthly vaccination is a must which the horse owners seldom monitor.

The Horses on the beach are seldom taken good care. PFCI has rescued Horses from Cruel treatment in the past on 4 occasions,

1. 4th March, 2014 a Pony was rescued and case filed at Nungambakkam Police station
2. 28th November, 2014 a Horse was rescued and case filed at Bezant Nagar Police station
3. 11th December, 2014 a Horse was rescued and case filed at Egmore Police station.

4. 14th Feburary, 2014 2 Horses were rescued and case filed at Marina Police station.
