HOW WE WORK
PFA Agra’s helpline number is widely known now in Agra. This is borne out by the fact that we get 4 to 6 calls daily through it. Once we receive a call for an animal in distress, we dispatch a doctor and a para vet with all the necessary first aid medication to the site of the incident. Upon reaching there they establish contact with the person who had placed the call to us. After understanding the situation and the case history, they begin their first aid on the patient in question. They then assess the situation of the animal to see if it needs to be transported to our animal hospital. If the situation of the animal is not critical, then we leave the animal in the care of the caller and our doctor keeps visiting the animal till it regains health. We take this course of action because there is limited space in our shelter and we cannot take every animal there. Secondly it also helps to inculcate a sense of responsibility and love for animals in the people in whose care the animal is placed.If the situation of the animal is critical and it needs regular monitoring and attention, then we take the animal to our animal hospital. Here the patient is given a complete examination by the VOIC (Veterinary Officer In-Charge) and is placed in an observation room. The hospital has staff which stay here round the clock and all the critically ill patients are inspected once every night. Once the animal in question is nursed back to health, we release it from where it was picked up. If the said animal is a dog, a vasectomy is performed before it is released. This is done in-keeping with our ABC Program.
