Mumbai: Tata Trusts and People For Animals to set up a multi-specialty veterinary hospital

The Animal Care Center is expected to be a state-of-the-art animal hospital spread over 9,000 square meters with a total holding capacity of 235, with emergency, in-patient and out-patient facilities for small and large animals.

Tata Trusts and People For Animals have collaborated 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 in next two years.

The Animal Care Center is expected to be a state-of-the-art animal hospital spread over 9,000 square meters with a total holding capacity of 235, with emergency, in-patient and out-patient facilities for small and large animals. The Center will be equipped with operation theaters, an intensive care unit, recovery rooms, imaging and pathology services.

It is conceived as a one-stop destination that provides high-quality medical care for animals, with specialized services in orthopedics, dentistry, trauma surgery and other treatments presently lacking in the greater Mumbai region.

Veterinary Training Institute

In addition to the medical facilities for animals, the proposed hospital will also impart continuing veterinary education, trainings, host workshops and programmes for the skill development of practicing veterinarians. The Center will additionally train veterinary support staff to enable the building of a cadre of well-trained professionals who can provide service the hospital as well as contribute to the greater human resources that needs in animal healthcare in India.

Estimate indicates 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 available that caters 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 conveniently. With the next closest animal hospital located in the neighboring 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 Alibag as well. All of the world's major cities from New York to Shanghai have several comprehensive animal care facilities within accessible limits and Mumbai should be no exception.
