Life by the Indian roads often comes to an abrupt end under the wheels. The luckier ones survive due to the timely & emergency efforts. An Active Response Team of JBF is one such group of dedicated people, ready to
help the needy and provide services to the ultimate extent possible.
JBF Mobile Clinics have been a great source of healing for cattle of Kotla Mubarakpur in Delhi and the canine population of Guwahati, Assam.
The Rescue groups are mainly divided into three broad categories:
Mobile Cattle Clinic (MCC), DELHI: The Mobile Cattle Clinic (MCC) was started in Delhi on 2003 with a small group that has expanded over the years through goodwill and word-of-mouth. Team JBF consists of trained Animal Handlers who respond to numerous emergency calls to treat the animals in distress and are in need of veterinary care. The team specializes in handling hoof and horn injuries with precision. It has also trained several children and adults from the families of cattle owners in providing first aid to their cattle. Our team has reached over 100,000 times to animals(cow/bull/calf/heifer/buffalo) in need of veterinary care.
Mobile Animal Clinic (MAC) GUWAHATI: JBF MAC is one of the few organizations that managesAnimal Rescue Operations and provides them with necessary treatment in Guwahati. It started in 2007 with city-wide reach out drives and a special health check-up every Saturday. Accident victims are of special concern to the Mobile Animal Clinic. Therefore, an Active Response Team of JBF handles accidental emergency cases for street/stray/community dogs.
STOP DOG MEAT TRADE (MTRD): (Amongst other activities)JBF is dedicated to stopping the Dog Meat Trade in the North Eastern region. A number of rescue operations have been successfully conducted by our team in the region. On 20th September 2017, JBF provided vet care & temporary shelter to 19 dogs rescued from the Meat Traders in Jowai, Meghalaya. Again, on 15th December 2017, JBF rescued 42 Dogs from Khetri, Assam. On another instance, activists from Jowai and Guwahati, along with theKhliehriat police intercepted a vehicle and managed to rescue 26 dogs.
The poor animals were suffering from dehydration, fear and other serious problems at the time of their rescue by our team. They were grabbed, dragged, put in gunnysacks and tied up with steel chains. Their mouths were gagged so that no one would hear their cries. The rescued Dogs were provided with immediate vet care and were rehabilitated.
