Good news for all the animal lovers out here at the Capital!

Delhi Government has introduced round-the-clock medical facility for animals in the Government Veterinary Hospital at Zorawar Singh Marg, Tis Hajari, and our hearts are going woof woof!

The Delhi Development Minister Gopal Rai inaugurated this one-of-a-kind veterinary hospital and further revealed that there are future plans of initiating this project in all the 11 districts of the city.

The Animal Husbandry Department has also launched this 24x7 helpline number for animal health-care assistance for people residing in Delhi- 011-23967555!

The launch of this veterinary hospital is a part of the recently announced 'Animal Health and Welfare Policy, 2018' which focuses on birth control of monkeys, a revised regime for sterilization of stray dogs and electronic chips for pets so that the owners can be identified of deserted pets and cattle in the city!

The minister also mentioned that the shortage of doctors in the Animal Husbandry department will be recovered soon and the vacant posts will be filled with qualified doctors!

It has also been said that the Delhi Government is also increasing the budget of the department for the animal health and there will be construction projects for new government hospitals very soon!

We’re actually glad that there is finally an option to treat our pets and strays in the Capital whenever it is urgent, without going through the hassles of waiting for a clinic to open its door during its scheduled timings!
