VCARE – Caring for Birds And Animals This Uttarayan!

Kaipppo Chhee!!!

Colorful kites flying in the blue sky, rooftops covered with young kids and adults, people holding their phirkee’s with finely sharpened threads, kids shouting and dancing to the new tunes and the noise of whistles start our day on Makar Sankranti! But amidst this fun and thrill of Uttarayan, what we forget is the plight of birds and animals who suffer the most on this festive day!

Barred from flying freely in the open sky and the fear of getting injured with the sharp threads, birds and animals suffer a lot on Uttarayan. But, what hurts most is when we see these birds get injured and people turning their heads only to enjoy the festival without any hesitation. There are many who wish to help these animals and birds, but are unaware of whom to contact and how to care the animals.

VCare is one such institution working for the cause of animals welfare and treating the sick and injurd animals, in and around Baroda for past 17 years as of now. Dr. Pratibha Panchal Administrator of VCare tells us about the NGO. VCare is located on the outskirts of Baroda at Lakdikui village, near Jaspur Padra taluka. It is a shelter which cares for animals and birds, treating them and educating people about it.

Every year, the NGO organizes a bird camp at Chakli circle on 14th and 15th January, aiding people who bring along injured birds and animals. The camp is attended by Senior Vets from Anand and other places who treat the birds and animals. More than 100-150 birds are treated on the spot at the camp during Makar Sankranti.
