Thane CPCA had been working for street animals since the year 2002. Without a place to build a hospital on, our Trustees and Staff were serving the animals with topical treatment on the roads of Thane.

In the year 2005, at the behest of a well wisher, Thane CPCA approached Nanjibhai Khimjibhai Thakker for a small piece of land where we could at least bring dying animals to breathe their last in dignity.

On the 10th of April 2005, with the help of philanthropist Dr. Nanjibhai Khimjibhai ThakkerThe Thane CPCA Emergency Medical Centre for Animals was started officially, with a single cage, a single table and a single veterinarian.

Since then, this 18-year-old hospital at NKT Compound, Beside Brahmand Society, Opp. Indofil Company, Kolshet Road, AzadNagar, Thane West, has treated more than 1,50,000 animals. We transformed a completely rocky and barren land into a Green Zone in 2 years’ time.

We are ever very grateful to Nanjibhai, now one of our Patron members, for letting us use his land in Azadnagar as a hospice. His patronage has transformed us from being a non entity to one of the most well known organizations of the country.
