December last year I found an abandoned baby kite close to being attacked by a dog; with the help of my mum and a friend we managed to bring her home.. She was very week and scared.. we really wanted to help so got in touch with a couple of people who finally introduced us to Jayanthi and Sal from ARRC.. Today is close to 3 months since the fragile flightless bird was rescued .. Jayanthi called me last evening and said that they had completely rehabilitated the little one and now she is ready to be set free again.. They carried a big box when they met us this morning at the spot where we had found her 3 months ago and as they opened the box flew out this beautiful kite.. Fully recovered and healthy.. Jayanthi and Sal I can't thank you enough for what you guys are doing.. Your dedication and passion is commendable.. Keep up the brilliant work guys... Thank you once again..
Worked very closely with the team... They carry huge competence and experience in rehabilitation. Great working team and highly focused on helping animals in distress.
Great work done by ARRC. super efficient too... kudos to the whole team.
I'm happy to report that the Cobra that was injured last month by snake tongs (tree pruners) finished her treatment at Avian and Reptile Rehabilitation Trust today. A huge thanks to Saleem Hameed and Jayanthi Kallam. This snake had her lung punctured and ribs broken but she didn't show any weakness for a second. She even underwent a surgery without anesthesia and survived against all odds. The same security guards who inflicted these wounds did something similar a few days ago to a nice Rat Snake that I had caught and released twice before. Seeing a snake that I was so familiar with in such a bad state was the breaking point. With the help of a friend, I immediately got their tongs confiscated and then dropped the Rat Snake off at the clinic. Hopefully he too recovers as well as this Cobra has. Seeing her disappear back into her habitat was one of the best feelings ever.
ARRC are doing a wonderful job. We reported a Koyal Chick lying on the road, possibly injured, for their attention today. Our request was attended to promptly and the Chick was collected from us within 30 minutes of the call. Great job!!

I don't think any review no matter how good it might be can do justice to the work that your organization is doing! I was confronted with a peculiar situation at work day before yesterday when a tailor bird who had made her nest in the money plant outside our room suddenly found her little ones (three of them initially) on the floor. The nest probably wasn't strong enough so we tried to secure it with some paper and duct tape and put the little ones back in it. We also put a thick paper on the floor so that in case we haven't succeeded in securing the nest the birds at least fall on the paper instead of the concrete. I as well as others in my office unfortunately have very little knowledge about caring for birds and their little ones. However yesterday I was saddened to see the lifeless body of one of the babies. What we saw was that one was on the paper on the floor and the parent bird was feeding this one, and the third one was on the concrete further away, neglected, probably abandoned, had maybe an hour or so left and was suffering. I called up the bird helpline in Delhi who then game Jayanti's number from Avian and Reptile Rehabilitation Trust. Even though I was hundreds of kilometres away in Delhi, Jayanti went to great lengths (by checking up on the birds constantly, instructing me step by step and educating me along side) It is because of her tireless effort that we were able to save the birds. I have been observing them the last 48 hours, the little weak one was fed as soon as we ensured that she is warm and cozy. We made a small temporary nest for the little ones and noticed that the parent birds came and fed them both. Slowly we then secured their original nest thanks to the (detailed drawing that Jayanti sent which was drawn by her colleague) we were able to safely put them in the nest. The little ones are being fed frequently and it is truely a wonderful sight to see. I wish there were more organizations like this one, the world we live in would be so much better! I don't think I could ever thank you enough and commend the work you are doing, but for starters A BIG THANK YOU! :)
