Although the rehabilitation and care of stray animals has been difficult, there have been initiatives taken to set up a centre in Urapakkam.
The Dax Memorial Animal Rehabilitation and Resource Centre provides free veterinary care to animals and one-to-one counseling, using telecommunication facilities.
Creating a rabies-free environment has posed a challenge in India for a very long time. Since 2011, Care Earth has been working to make the Urapakkam Village rabies free. Thus far, we have managed to vaccinate over 600 dogs, cats, and goats that have been vaccinated. We only hope to continue on with this initiative!
