But I need your help.
Animal services are essential, but we can't conduct business as usual. What must shelters do - and not do - right now?
The pandemic is not only affecting the humans, but it has made the life of all the voiceless animals miserable. Working towards rescuing and feeding animals is trying to do its best for the abandoned and stray animals

Effect due to Pandemic- Covid-19
The number of call-ins per day was constantly increasing, but our capacity to house, treat, neuter, and rehome these stray animals/birds was not.
We’ve lost so many animals over the past few years because we didn’t have enough space or supplies. So in 2018 we bought 17 acres of land and started work on a project to build a cageless sanctuary for them, comprising all the necessary medical & rehabilitation facilities for dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, cows, domestic cattle & wild animals.
If AMTM can care for 500 strays in 44,000 sft within Mumbai city, we can have over 5000 animals at the sanctuary. But the cost of developing so much land is very high. Though I’ve been trying my best to get it done myself, there’s so much left to do even a year later.”
Since its inception, AMTM has fed stray animals on the street. They manage to feed an average of 450 cats and dogs every single day, even during this pandemic.
Rescue and Treatment
At AMTM, they are constantly treating sick and injured stray animals either reported to them or brought in to the center by the public. These include road traffic accidents, poisonings, critical wounds, and cruelty cases – which are given top priority.
Animals brought in or picked up by them also include cases with distemper, parvovirus, sarcoptic and demodectic mange, canine transmissible tumors (TVT), infected wounds, fractures, and skin diseases.
