Safe home foundation having a separate rescue team for attending all the emergency dog rescues on the streets. The office team handle between 800 to 1100 calls each month and many responses demand immediate assistance from our rescue team. In such cases our office team will immediately reports to the rescue team and they will arrive to the spot and rescue the dog which was in need of hospital treatments.

We are having separate ambulance for all the rescue, Whether a dog has been hit by a car, or a dog has fallen in a ditch, we are here to help all the stray dogs suffering with some serious problems.

From early morning until past midnight, whenever we receive a report, our office team assesses the condition of the dog via video, and dispatches our rescue teams so that animals with the most life-threatening problems are given greatest priority.

Once the rescued animals have arrived at our safe home foundation shelter, they are visually assessed by a vet and quickly monitored for contagious diseases before being admitted. They are then taken to an assessment room for a more detailed diagnosis and, from there, proceed to whichever area of the hospital is relevant to their needs.

Cases often include distemper or parvovirus infection, sarcoptic and demodectic mange, canine transmissible tumours (TVT) – all these diseases, seen in the Madurai city are prevalent in india. Other common cases include infected wounds, fractures due to road traffic accidents, various skin conditions and tick-borne diseases. 

When someone in Madurai spots an injured or ill dog, they can call our Emergency Helpline 8072267161 or 9345467560 to report the condition. The number of caring people contacting us to help an animal has grown continuously, with an average of 5 animals reported to us each day, and spikes of up to 65 calls. We are covering entire Madurai city and surroundings.

Our rescue teams respond to approximately 10 spots each day, out of which around 5 Dogs require treatment in our hospital. These are animals who require antibiotics for infected wounds, splints for fractures, surgery or intensive care for severely ill or injured animals. Length of stay ranges from just a few days to sometimes many months, such as for dogs with spinal injury. When fully healed, dogs are given for adoptions and few dogs returned to their neighbourhoods where their care-takers can keep a careful eye on them. Adoption is the best way to support us and to be a major part of many life changing rescues to know more about adoption kindly check the adoption tab in our site map.

Prevention is better than a cure

When there are more dogs than guardians, everyone suffers. Animal welfare often deteriorates, communities come under the endemic threat of rabies, and the overpopulation crisis spirals more and more out of control. 

Street dogs in India survive by eating the left-overs and scraps given by people or that they find in garbage, which is abundant. Their population usually closely corresponds to the human population and the amount of available garbage.

A single female dog can have two litters per year – that’s anywhere from 8 to 12 new pups on average within the first year. It’s easy to see how dog’s populations have boomed. 

Sterilization combined with rabies inoculation is internationally recognized to be the most effective and humane means of population and rabies control.

In India, although the law requires government bodies to conduct animal birth control programs, most cities do not have them and it’s left to non-governmental organizations to run programs of varying sizes.

We run our spay/neuter program without financial support from the government.

But we can stop overpopulation in its tracks. Sterilising india’s street dogs frees from the suffering of unwanted litters. It gifts local communities the chance to take control of their animal population, and learn how to properly care for the animals that do exist on their streets. 

By sterilising each dog we come into contact with, you are helping stray dogs live happy, healthy lives. And you’re preventing another generation of unwanted street dogs from experiencing painful skin conditions and devastating preventable disease. 

Better yet, every sterilised dogs will also be rabies vaccinated, recorded in our portal and details of every spay-neuter surgery, the dog’s age, gender, ownership status and condition are there in our records.  From there, we can follow up on dogs, conduct regular population surveys and treat common conditions before they become life-threatening.

Saving lives and stopping problems before they start. It’s what SHF doing effectively. 

Be the kindest soul to adopt the needful souls

Adoption is the best way to support us. At the Safe home Foundation shelter, hundreds of dogs wait in anticipation of loving homes. Many have been rescued from suffering on the streets or as survivors of some critical road accidents. All are deserving of a forever home and the process is a lot easier than you think.

Some of the animals we rescue don’t have a home to go back to so they might be abandoned, orphans and too young to make it on their own, or they might come from difficult areas. They stay with us until they find a forever home.

Give them the care they need, love they deserve. Adopt a Forever Friend today! Don’t Shop.

When peoples come to know about how to care for a dog in their locality & how to treat them with love then sure it will become a safer community for all the stray dogs in their surroundings.

Educating the community through our rescues

SHF is focusing through various aspects on educating peoples about stray dogs. Our first education process starts at the rescue spot. When we rescue a dog from the roadside with kindness & care peoples in that locality come to know about our organisation. With some basic awareness our rescue team will share the helpline numbers to the peoples out there From saving our helpline number in their phones, to learning that conditions like mange are actually treatable, everyone’s awareness grows. Most people who see an dog being rescued today are more likely to spot an dog tomorrow who needs help and report the problem. This is the first we change we bring among the peoples. Seeing a stray dog suffering with pain or critical illness sure they will remember about the helpline number they got and they will immediately report to us. A small information can give a second chance in a stray dogs life. We educate the community through our rabbies programme’s and many other local conference about how to identify health problems so that minor issues don’t become serious. For instance, applying medicated fly repellent can prevent wounds from getting infected with maggots. Treating wounds, mange and other conditions early is key to preventing suffering. Teaching children how to interact with animals saves two, three and four-legged lives. Rabies is endemic in india, and dogs are one of its favourite carriers. That’s why dog bites, and the fear of dog bites, can trigger dog culls. We developed an interactive Children’s Education Programme, where we use interactive sessions, role-play and colouring activities to discuss animals. It covers everything from an animal’s basic needs, to respect, positive handling, bite prevention and even what to do if you are bitten. At the end of the session, every child signs a pledge to ‘Be kind with the stray dogs’.
