PROGRAM FOCUSES ON
The single most important thing that we can do to save cats and dogs from all the suffering and death that their overpopulation causes is to spray and neuter them. Spraying and neutering are routine, affordable surgeries that can prevent thousands of animals from being born, only to suffer and struggle to survive on the streets, be abused by cruel or neglectful people, or be euthanized in animal shelters for lack of a loving home.
Mumbai is home to millions of street dogs. HCWT was set up to help improve the welfare of stray & abandoned dogs in Mumbai by addressing the main source of all problems — overpopulation. The only ethical and the most effective way of managing a street dog population is through mass spray/ neuter programmes. HCWT has sterilized and vaccinated over 9200 + dogs and cats so far.
Dogs and cats are brought in by the public as well as by our Animal rescue team & volunteers. In 2016 the mass spray / neuter programme had been expanded to Mumbai Suburban which is home to an estimated 10 lakh street dogs.

RESCUING THE INNOCENT!
There was a dog that was trapped in a sewage tank. This also happened in society in Mumbai. There are many stray dogs and so many incidences, where often the precious lives are lost due to untimely help at the site. In this case, there was sewage that was not closed properly, and this poor dog fell inside. Luckily the society watchman called our rehabilitators work who swung into action immediately. They carefully got the dog without hurting it. It was cleaned with water and checked if there was any wound. It was taken to our clinic where all tests were done to see the dog did not have any internal injury. It was fed with good food and taken care of for 3 weeks until he was fit to be released back to the streets where he belonged.
