We believe that in most cases a stray dog recovers from an injury or ailment faster
if he is not put through the stress of hospitalization. Under our Healthcare programme, many sick and injured stray dogs are
treated in their own territory. A few serious cases are brought to our Mahalaxmi centre.
The on-site first-aid programme is carried out by our Manager-Projects Pooja Mishra and the WSD first aid team, and by a large
number of trained volunteers. Groups in different areas of the city treat stray dogs with wounds, skin problems and other
ailments. The groups work every Sunday and on other days too when required. This activity also helps in the task of counting
and identifying dogs who need to be sterilized. If a dog is difficult to restrain, has a more serious injury or requires
hygienic surroundings for recovery, it is admitted at our Mahalaxmi centre for treatment.
Homeopathy clinic for animals: Once a week we help run a homeopathy clinic where pet and stray animals are treated for a wide
variety of problems including infections, spinal injuries, growths, skin disease and behaviour problems such as aggression. Stray
animals are treated free of charge. If you want to bring an animal for homeopathic treatment, call 91-22-23733433.
Twice a year we hold free workshops for the public on basic first-aid for stray dogs. The WSD "SOS" Workshops are now
well-established and very well attended. Contact us if you wish to attend the next one.
