“Non-government organisation Friendicoes SECA began with a tiny premises at a shopping complex, a bare shop with a curtain for its fourth wall, with no electricity or water. Within the first week of starting the clinic-cum-shelter, we had 27 dogs and 12 cats in residence, these being abandoned pets and hit-and-run animals rescued by us,” says Friendicoes SECA executive member Gautam Grover.
“Today we have a lot more space to work and two operation theatres in the shelter-cum-hospital where over 150 dogs and cats are accommodated, treated, cared for and then rehabilitated at any point in time. We also have a sanctuary for animals in Gurgaon where we provide a home to about 800 rescued dogs, cats, horses and other animals that cannot survive on the road,” he adds.
