Life on the streets of Chennai can be unimaginably brutal for a dog like Jerry.

One morning, Jerry was involved in a terrible road accident in Chennai, India. While the FOUR PAWS vet team was on its way to the clinic, they were horrified to witness Jerry fall from the arms of a man on a motorcycle. The streets were packed with traffic and Jerry was hit by another oncoming motorcycle.

Luckily, our team was there to help.

Our vets immediately took Jerry to the clinic, treating him immediately. Suffering from serious trauma, he was unable to stand  or eat unsupported. But because of our quick response, we were able to ensure his survival. And we’re happy to say, Jerry has since been adopted by a loving family, and he’s on his way to a full recovery.

Jerry is only one of hundreds of dogs treated by the FOUR PAWS veterinary team in Chennai. With an estimated 25 million dogs  roaming the streets, India has more strays than any other country. Typically surviving on discarded refuse, many are  horribly injured, old and sick. Like Jerry, many are in urgent need of veterinary treatment.

There are so many strays in Chennai—local vets simply cannot cope on their own. Will you make a donation today, to help us with our stray animal work and help us ease animal suffering where it’s most needed?

We travel to Chennai several times  a year to support our partner organisation, Blue Cross of India, at its animal clinic. FOUR PAWS vets have already been able to help hundreds of dogs, including Jerry, on their most recent visit to Chennai this year.

We’ll return to India in May 2016 and we’re determined to help as many dogs as we possibly can. Our team of vets is in constant need of medicine and equipment to help dogs like Jerry.

Please make a donation today and help us support animals in need. Your gift could help keep dogs like Jerry healthy—and safe.  

We are 100% funded by voluntary donations. Your gift today means we can be there to rescue and care for more dogs like Jerry in India and around the world. Thank you so much for whatever you can give.
