What do you do if you see an injured animal?
- If the animal is familiar to and friendly with you, and allows you to touch him/her – please pick up the animal and take it to the nearest veterinary clinic or hospital for first aid and pain relief.
- If the animal is unfamiliar or unfriendly, and is severely injured – this is where CUPA can help. Call our helpline 080 22947300 / 301 and explain the situation to the receptionist.
- Cases of skin allergies and rashes only become worse in the shelter and pass on to the animals. These are best treated outside a shelter, perhaps just within your home compound
- Victims of accidents and road rage who are likely to need surgery and intense treatments are the ones that get priority pick up.
