Mumbai/Kolkata, Mar 24 (IBNS): Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister of Maharashtra; Maneka Sanjay Gandhi, Union Minister for Women and Child Development and Founder, People For Animals and Ratan N. Tata, Chairman, Tata Trusts on Friday will be announcing the collaboration between Tata Trusts and People for Animals, to build a state-of-the-art, multi-specialty veterinary hospital and emergency clinic that will serve the needs of all domestic and farm animals at accessible and affordable rates.

The hospital will be located at Kalamboli in Navi Mumbai and is expected to be ready to welcome animals in two years.

Estimates indicate that there are at least 50,000 registered pets, 70,000 unregistered pets, 200,000 stray dogs, and 300,000 stray cats in Mumbai, for which there are only two full‐time animal hospitals that caters to all their needs, treating hundreds of animals daily.

One full‐time animal hospital in Central Mumbai simply cannot cater to the needs of all the animals in distress across Greater Mumbai in a timely manner.

With the next closest animal hospital located in the neighbouring district of Thane, many sick or injured animals, both pets and strays, perish solely because of the lack of access to adequate local veterinary care facilities.

The aim is to plug the existing gap in animal welfare in Maharashtra by setting up a strategically placed animal hospital catering to animals from Mumbai City, Navi Mumbai, Pune, Khandala, Lonavala, and Alibaug.

All of the world’s major cities from New York to Shanghai have several comprehensive animal care facilities within city limits and Mumbai should be no exception.
