People For Animals India Forms New Partnership Making Animal Welfare A Greater Priority


Positive news for animal welfare comes from Bhubaneswar, the capital of the Indian state of Odisha, this morning.

According to Odisha Sun Times, in a remarkable move, Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has teamed with People for Animals (PFA), India’s largest animal welfare organization, to provide much-needed health care for animals in the city.

BMC, which has a historic tradition of strong civic activism dedicated to the cause of a better life for all its citizens, will now be providing logistical support for the PFA’s rehabilitation and treatment center at Ranasinghpur.

In addition to caring for pets and injured animals, through the new alliance, the Ranasinghpur center is also extending a helping hand to a large population of strays including dogs, kittens, and cattle.

Following necessary treatment and rehabilitation, the stray dogs and cats are then put up for adoption.

“I am happy that BMC authorities and especially additional commissioner Alok Kumar Kar are showing interest in the animal welfare measures, and BMC is helping us in logistics like the bull and cattle transport vehicle, and providing other items for cleaning and purifying the premises at Ransinghpur,” In-charge of the PFA center, Amulya Nayak said while referring to the facility that has provided timely treatment to over 70 bulls and more than 400 dogs suffering from a variety of issues.

According to Kar, the organization is also open to setting up a second Animal Birth Control (ABC) center for sterilizing dogs.

The ABC program of BMC is currently being managed through the Veterinary Polyclinic in Saheed Nagar.

Cattle, monkeys, mongoose, squirrels, and owls are also treated at the center which is currently home to seven bulls and 12 dogs.
