Animal Birth Control (ABC)

Blue Cross of India specializes in performing the Animal Birth Control (ABC) surgery for all the dogs that come for treatment, or are brought for ABC by owners. Apart from this, since 1995, the Chennai Corporation has been sending stray dogs to Blue Cross specifically for the surgery. The process of this programme is such that a dog is picked up, tagged and brought back to the hospital-cum-shelter. After a thorough check-up and confirmation that the animal is ready for surgery, it is neutered (males) or spayed (females), housed and fed till the sutures are removed. Then the dog is dewormed, vaccinated and released in the same location where it was picked up from. During the surgery, the tip of one ear is tattooed/notched to label the dog as ‘sterilized’. On each trip, one of their supervisors accompanies the pickup van to ensure proper execution of the programme.

Medical Waste Disposal

Blue Cross of India has always been particular about managing bio-medical waste ethically. GJ Multiclave India Pvt Ltd helps achieve this at subsidized costs by waiving the usual collection fee. The company has been clearing bio-medical waste from over 170 hospitals in and around Chennai.


Blue Cross’s hospital in Guindy works on all 365 days of the year and they treat nearly 35000 animals annually. Apart from nine veterinarians, who attend to cases during the day, a doctor is on duty to attend to emergency cases at night. Specialists for any particular surgeries/treatment are invited when required. Like all their other activities, the hospital provides free medical treatment to all injured/unwell stray animals. Only owners, who bring their pets for vaccination are charged as per MRP.

Shelter for animals

Every year, nearly 3,000 stray animals are rescued and brought to Blue Cross of India for medical treatment, and the team provides shelter and nutritious food to help them recuperate. While cattle, dogs and cats are the main categories of animals at the shelters, birds, white mice, squirrels, horses, donkeys, deer and even a monitor lizard have found temporary refuge with them.


Abandoned pets found in public spaces and pets that have lost their way have been taken in and rehomed or reunited with their families. Though providing foster care for these animals comes at a substantial cost, Blue Cross continues to serve them. In fact, of more than 3,000 animals, only one-third find forever homes.

Shelter for Cows and buffalos

All stray cattle rounded up by the Corporation of Madras and not claimed by their owners within 15 days are now handed over to Blue Cross. These cattle were formerly auctioned by the Corporation and usually ended up in the slaughter house. They are now relocated to pinjrapoles (home for old animals) in Mysore, Bangalore, Vellore and other places at substantial expense to the Blue Cross.
