Many stray dogs are left paralyzed every year due to road accidents or medical reasons. Many are brought to us by kind-hearted humans for treatment and long-term care. Though we don't succeed in healing every paralyzed dog, we are proud to say that our success rate is considerably high in treating such cases. Despite our limited financial and human resources, we treat the animals with medicines, special rehabilitation therapies, love and care, and, above all, immense passion. Adopting a destitute paralyzed animal and ensuring that it walks on its four legs is our real mission, and when they finally accomplish that feat, it is our biggest reward. It gives us hope and a kind of happiness that is unparalleled.

Jhumru was found in November 2021 at Shivaji Enclave, West Delhi. He was fully paralyzed and dragging himself around on his hind legs. He had spinal as well as some internal injuries, which seemed to be fatal, due to a road mishap.

The paralyzed animals, who could not be cured with treatment, need life-long specialized care. They cannot survive on road. We adopt such animals and nurse them with love and care as long as they live. Our Special Care Unit has housed so many paralyzed dogs and cats ever since its inception.
Similarly, lame animals also need a bit extra care and have to face so many hardships to survive on their own. We adopt such animals and try to assure a happy and healthy life. Our Special Care unit is always full with such handicapped, lame and three legged animals.
In addition to the above, the Special Care Unit has many old animals with several age-related ailments such as arthritis, cataract, diabetes, and heart, liver, or kidney diseases. These animals need love and specialized medical care to live a healthy life.
Some of these animals are blind since birth, some are blind with cataract and some have eye-tumors. They cannot survive on the road. They need special care under medical supervision.
Ever since the inception of the Foundation, we have successfully raised many orphan puppies and kittens. These have either lost their mothers at a very young age or were rescued even before they could open their eyes. They need a lot of care to survive and grow. Until the initial cycles of vaccinations are over, one can never be sure of their survival.
We have successfully treated different kinds of tumors and cancers in dogs, including nasal cancers, transmissible venereal tumors, mammary gland tumors. We are grateful to our excellent panel of dedicated veterinarians who have surgically removed the tumors or administered chemotherapy and other treatments to cure the patients.
