Reducing animal suffering and human-animal conflict
Why Sterilise Stray Animals?
The only way to humanely control the stray animal population
Overpopulation of unsterilised street dogs in an area results in aggression of male dogs during mating season, fights over territory, fighting over food, noise of dogs during the night, burden of continuous puppy-bearing on females leading to weakened state, and the suffering and deaths of countless puppies from road accidents, disease, injury, and human cruelty.
Tragically, when the population of street dogs is not controlled humanely, people will take it into their own hands to control the numbers with poisonings and beatings.
Sterilisation, spay and neuter, or animal birth control, is the only proven way to effectively and humanely control the stray animal population.
Spay & Neuter Procedure
From catch to release
Our network of volunteers and dog feeders identify unsterilised stray cats and dogs in the area.
Dogs that have not been spayed or neutered have intact ears, while sterilised dogs have a V-shaped notch cut in their ears during the spay/neuter operation. This allows for easy identification from a distance.
Once we have identified unsterilised animals, we arrange dog catchers, animal transport, surgery, and post-operative care.
Tails 'N' Trees funds the dog catchers, animal transport to and from the hospital, and surgery at private veterinary clinics.
Partner NGOs carry out surgery and post-operative care at a subsidised rate.
After surgery and care, Tails 'N' Trees volunteers ensure that the stray cats or dogs are released back to their correct original location.
Fund our spay & neuter programs
We require funding to employ the dog catchers, animal transport, and surgery at veterinary clinics.
There are no admin charges so every rupee donated goes directly to help humanely control the stray animal population and reduce suffering.
Help us create a kinder world for humans and animals by contributing towards our sterilisation program.
