1. Development of Shelters for destitute animals.
The first achievement of the organization has been the setting up of a shelter for dogs and cats. This is the Swarna Lata Home for Destitute Animals. Located in Village Bhati in south Delhi, in the Chhattarpur area, there are about 100 destitute dogs and cats that have found a home here to regain their strength and to thrive in peace, respect and safety. This shelter currently houses a mix of some very challenging occupants. There are 10 handicapped and orthopedic patients, six old or ageing dogs who are in their sunset years, 18 orphans, five sensitive dogs and cats under medical treatment, and more than 15 aggressive dogs and 36 abandoned pets that had virtually no hope of finding a safe haven because society could not accept them as they are.

2. Carrying out Animal Birth Control (ABC) Programs.
Animal Birth Control or ABC is as basic as its name: the ABC of animal welfare. As our cities grow and space becomes a premium, the animals that we lived in harmony with, in and around our homes, for thousands of years are now seen as a threat or a nuisance or simply, an eyesore. They are beaten, starved, stoned, killed or simply run over by the wheels of our modern civilization. According to the World Health Organisation, Animal Birth Control is the most humane and practical way of managing a controlled and healthy population of neighbourhood animals. The courts of law have also agreed with that. The surgery is of the nature that allows a male dog to be released back where it was picked up from, in about three days and a female, in a few more days, as long as all goes well.

3. Setting up of Veterinary Hospitals.
Setting up veterinary hospitals is the need of the hour. We need more such hospitals and we need quality animal care hospitals. Kalyani Animal Welfare Foundation is keen to build up veterinary hospitals for stray and abandoned animals in need. Till now, we have been taking our injured and ill animals outside for veterinary attention. This can be trying, in terms of logistics, and uncomfortable for the animal that is already in distress. We need to set up a one-stop centre where investigations and treatment of a variety of injuries and illnesses can be done under one roof so that we can monitor better the progress of the animals in our care.

Once a veterinary hospital comes up, it will serve not only the animals in our shelter but will be an asset for all animals in the neighbourhood, whether pet or stray. It will also be a help for other shelters in the vicinity.  

4. Providing Ambulance Service and Mobile Clinics.

The first few hours after an accident or a traumatic event are the most critical for the injured or ill animals. However, because of the lack of our own ambulance, we often run from pillar to post to find transport to pick up the accident victim and to take the victim to a veterinarian.

The organization also hopes to set up Mobile Clinics that can pick up and/or treat accident-hit animals and to carry out on-the-spot treatment for animals that do not require hospitalisation. At present, we are dependent on volunteers for rescue pickups and drops. Goodwill gestures are wonderful, but we need something more dependable.

5. Carrying out Awarness Building Programmes.
Building up awareness is the need of the hour. Much of our population can be more compassionate and considerate towards animals if only they knew some details about an animal’s life. Awareness Building Programmes are very essential  to educate the general public about the necessity and benefits of animal welfare, caring of street and pet animals, various myths and realities about animals, common animal diseases and their remedies, how to fight the cruelty to animals in their areas. We also need to spread awareness about first aid in case of animal bites.

Such awareness programmes are based on the faith that most people are generally good. The goodness, however, is often hidden under layers of ignorance or indifference that can be peeled back with regular, scientific, convincing and simple explanations.

These sessions need to be repeated regularly to drive a point home and to address a new audience. The organization thrives on the use of electronic media and social networking websites that educate people about various laws and regulations pertaining to the prevention of Cruelty to Animals and animal birth control (ABC) programmes.

However, the importance of teaching by example and by interaction cannot be underlined enough. A case in point is the effect Swarna Lata Home for Destitute Animals has had on them. After seeing the humane treatment, the reciprocal affection and attachment and the results that medical treatment can bring about, the villagers of Bhati Village, South Delhi, where the shelter is located, are a changed group. They, who earlier used to abandon old and diseased dogs at a faraway place, now approach the organisation for their treatment and well-being. They have also learnt the need for ABC and of vaccinating animals. Thus, one animal shelter has educated and altered the perception and lifestyle of an entire village where both humans and animals are both healthier, safer and happier because of the knowledge they have gained and because of the help that they know is close at hand. Electronic media is more reasonable, as costs go, than on-ground awareness building campaigns. However, the importance of both is irrefutable.
