Brooke Hospital for Animals

brooke logo

The Brooke Hospital for Animals is an international animal welfare organization whose motto is ‘healthy working animals for the world’s poorest communities”. The Brooke was established in Pakistan in 1991, and has centers in Lahore, Multan, Peshawar, Gujranwala and Mardan. After the earthquake struck the northern areas of the country, they organized donkey trains to carry relief goods to people in inaccesssable areas, as well as treated thousands of injured animals.

From The Brooke:

Over 34,000 animals saved by Brooke
26 January 2006

Since the devastating earthquake struck in north west Pakistan last October, the Brooke’s dedicated veterinary teams have been working tirelessly in the area treating tens of thousands of animals, and helping countless vulnerable people keep their animals alive throughout the bitter winter months.

The Brooke has four mobile veterinary crews based in the worst hit areas of Balakot and Muzzafarabad, where it treated over 34,000 animals in the aftermath of the quake for a range of problems, including lameness and multiple injuries caused by falling rubble and landslides, and hypothermia from lack of shelter.

Together with the Humane Society International (HSI), the Brooke has built over 300 winter-proof shelters for poor communities living high up in the mountains. In addition, the charities distributed hundreds of free sacks of concentrated animal feed, and carried out a comprehensive vaccination programme against potentially fatal diseases for over 13,000 livestock.

One of the bravest relief efforts organised by the Brooke was a 40-strong ‘donkey train’ to deliver medical supplies, blankets and food along a treacherous mountainous route up to 8,000 feet. During the 13-day operation, 50,000 kg of supplies was delivered to desperately needy people. And help was not restricted to the animals – in the immediate aftermath of the quake the vets treated thousands of people where no other medical help was available.

    I wish there are cat treatments in that hospital. I haven’t seen many. The ones I’ve seen only insert the syringe if the animal is sick. My cat has flu and all I’m getting here in this town(not karachi) are human medicines. I read on net that human medicines could be toxic for cats

    Sirs,
    I live in Gulberg, Lahore with my family – I am English but my husband is Pakistani. I have supported the Brooke with contributions and was so relieved to find an organisation that helped horses and donkeys. However, when I had cause to call out the Brooke to a badly injured and abandoned donkey, the response was that the person was in bed asleep (at 9pm in the evening) and could not come. I was devastated.
    ALso, recently after complaining to a policeman about a man abusing his donkey, the donkey was conviscated -but I dont know where it was taken. I understand that there is a law that provides for abused animals to be taken from their owners but what happens to these animals? I think it is rare for this law to be implemented.
    When we come across abuse we try and reason with the person, reminding him that it is haram to abuse animals, shaming him in public, and also that the animal is his bread and butter and if abused it will die and then another will have to be purchased – but I understand that the carts are more expensive than the donkey.
    For our part we try and look after injured and abandoned cats, and puppies – we have 30 cats at the moment that we feed and care for. OK we have to use baby medicine, and local vets that we trust – but it is a heartbreaking occupation, and the animal sanctuary we hoped for has turned into an animal cemetary.
    We just keep carrying on hoping that at least we can relieve some suffering.

    I cant take care of my 7 year old Belgium Shepherd (bitch). She develops some strange fungus type itch in summer and gets better in the winter. Tried all sorts of vets and now would like to retire her.. permanently. What a good way to “out her to sleep”? No point in making her suffer another pakistani summer

      Please don’t have her put to sleep. We’ll help you find a loving home for her. There are probably people out there who would be willing to adopt her. Please post a photo along with contact details on our Facebook page Facebook.com/pawspakistan so that people can reach you directly.

    Hello to all,

    I’m Suleman from lhr model town.I really appreciate Brookes team members and all unit for serving a great cause.Brooke team is like ANGEL IN DISGUISE.
    I’m animal lover and I’m too much into them since 12 years……in last 5 years I have rescued almost 48 animals at my own….most of them were dogs,cats and few donkey’s and birds.
    Some dogs were badly injured coz of road accident,some were badly beaten by their owners,some were sick due to critical viral/bacterial diseases and infections. Its not my profession or job but my LOVE towards all animals.i rescued different animals from different areas/places at different times/days.
    I caught them while going on the road for my random routine work or house course. Its always so painful whenever I saw wounded/injured animal on the road side and it never happen that I stop myself to help them and I do it at my own without any physical or financial help.
    I request to all ,please please please help injured/wounded animals….give food to pregnant female dogs/cats or whenever they need any help.instead of buying pedigree expensive dogs from pets shop please please adopt them from roads.

    I don’t have a huge house but I have 7 dogs……i took all of them from different places…few of them were badly injured few of them were only 4,5 days of age.im happy to have such a wonderful family and I feel blessed to have them in my life.

    Its my utmost wish and I pray that God help me to rescue/safe all street animals from Pakistan.
