World Sankirtan Tour Trust is parent body and Gau Seva Dham is working under the aegis of it. It was established by Pujya Devi Chitralekha Ji on 26th May 2013. It is situated in Hodal in an area of more than 5 acres.
The reason for establishing Gau Seva Dham is to just serve and protect Gau-Mata. Once, Devi ji saw an injured cow lying on the road. Her condition was serious and the cars were passing by that cow paying no heed to her. Devi ji was so hurt by witnessing such insensitivity towards Gau-Mata. She rushed towards her to give her first-aid and decided to do something to help stray animals.
So, in 2013 she established the Gau Seva Dham Hospital to provide free medical care, food and shelter not only to cows but to all stray animals.
We have treated more than 20,000 animals till date and have provided on the spot medical-care and OPD to more than 5000 animals.
We are a team of more than 100 dedicated employees who are determined to make this world a better living place for these injured, hungry and harassed animals. We want people to become more sensitive and compassionate towards animals. we are serving them the best what we can do in our capacity day and night with all caliber and potentials.
We have a full-time staff of about 100 people to take care of them 24*7 with all the modern facilities...
The Gau Seva Dham has it's own medical storage room which has all the necessary medicines, injections, bandages and other stuff for the treatment of animals. Emergency can arise at any time, and during emergencies every second's delay can be fatal, so we don't waste time in going to buy the medical stuff. We have our own medical storage room which is easily accessible at the time of treatment.
The animal kitchen means the place where chapatis and daliya are prepared for the animals because let's be honest cows can't eat fodder all the time, they also need variety in their life. We're more modern than you think, we have an automatic roti making machine which can make 1000 Chapatis in just 1 hour.
Sometimes animals are more seriously injured, and needs operation. So for those unfortunate times, we have a proper operation theater with all the modern equipment. It has all the modern machines, lights etc. to help our doctors operate on the animals.
We also have a lab where new methods for the treatment of animals are researched. We research on animal behaviour, what should be fed to them and how to take the best care of them.
A latest 1000 ma x-ray Machine by which we can take x-ray of small to big animals such as elephant. Like humans, animals also break their bones sometimes. So to check the broken bones, we have a latest 1000 ma x-ray Machine for animals so that we can know of any broken bones and mend them properly. Unlike some humans, animals are actually very nice patients, they don't fuss about having medicines, don't run away or get scared of operations. Now to think of it, animals are great actually. This type of big machine is not available in nearby places.
Sometimes, animals lose their limbs and we can't let them live without a limb because they need all four of them to walk. So for that time, we have to perform surgery on them. We have artificial legs and other equipment to help them lead a normal life after a deadly encounter. We help them learn how to walk with their fake legs and trust us, they are fast learners.
We have several other wards for several other special needs. They are as follows-
We have a fleet of high tech ambulances In case of emergencies we also attend to animals who are 200-300 kms away. We also give on-the-spot care to the animals who need immediate care. We also have bike ambulances so that our doctors can reach the needy animals without worrying about traffic, or narrow streets. Every ambulance has GPS facilities so that we can track the ambulance and the ambulance can also reach the location easily.
There is daily OPD held for farmers nearby villages. They bring their ill cows and other animals for treatment.
Our animal friends also feel hot during the harsh summer months. So for those times we have wards with air conditioners, coolers and uPVC windows. We all know about ACs and coolers, so let's know more about uPVC windows.
UPVC stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, it is a strong and low-maintenance but lightweight plastic building material. It became increasingly popular in the home improvement industry as an alternative to painted timber because of its many benefits such as having strong resistance against chemicals, sunlight and oxidisation from water. It keeps the ward cool and deflects sunlight.
