Rehabilitation of stray and orphaned animals in urban habitats has been a major challenge. The Dax Memorial Animal Rehabilitation and Resource Center (DMARRC) has established a shelter and referral centre at Urapakkam. Free veterinary care to animals and one-to-one counseling on animal care and rehabilitation is being provided directly and using telecommunication facilities.

September 28 is World Rabies Day. Creating a rabies-free environment is a major challenge in India. Starting October 2011, Care Earth has been working to make Urapakkam Village, in the outskirts of Chennai, rabies-free. More than 600 dogs, cats, and goats have been vaccinated during this period.
