Animal Helpline

STRAW Animal Help Line is a 24-hour service that aims to bring help to an animal in distress in the fastest possible time. It responds to phone calls and links the caller to organizations that already have the infrastructure like an ambulance, a veterinary hospital and a shelter required to attend to an injured animal and coordinates the entire activity until the animal is rescued.

Our trained staff also use the STRAW Animal Helpline as a tool of outreach to educate callers to build awareness about various issues faced by animals, including animal first aid, pet care, lost pets, lost and found pets, abandoned pets and much more. During the last five years, they have been able to:

  • Get injured animals from the street to a veterinary hospitals, where they could be treated.
  • Rescue dogs and puppies fallen into deep ditches.
  • Rescue cats from high rise buildings.
  • Counsel and convince people to retain their pets instead of giving them away or worse abandoning them.
