The presidential grant in the amount of 1,400,000 rubles was won by a team of Novosibirsk volunteers who take care of animals in trouble. With the money from the grant, they intend to purchase a special simulator for physiotherapy of injured dogs, new equipment, and consumables for operations, VN.ru reports.
A representative of the animal rehabilitation base volunteer organization, Anastasia Batueva, said that a rehabilitation simulator for physiotherapy of injured animals and additional enclosures will appear in their hospital. In addition, with the money of the grant, they plan to purchase equipment for disinfection, an autoclave and supplies for operational days to control the number of stray animals.
It is specified that operations to sterilize stray animals, hospital and veterinary care are available now. It is also noted that zoological volunteers, private shelters and overexposure, as well as residents of Novosibirsk and the region who have found a homeless and injured animal, can use the services free of charge. In total, volunteers are going to accept at least 500 animals for treatment and rehabilitation.
