Every month, we receive hundreds of calls regarding urban wildlife in distress. To combat the rising number of conflict cases, Wildlife SOS operates a 24×7 emergency rescue helplines manned by our Rapid Response Team in three cities:

Delhi NCR – +91-9871963535

Vadodara, Gujarat – +91-9825011117

If you come across any wild animal in distress in the following cities, please alert our rescue team on these numbers as soon as possible!


August has been a rather eventful month for the Wildlife SOS Rapid Response Unit. The team has come to the rescue of 368 animals, operating in the midst of the pandemic, providing aid to those who need it!

Of all places to imagine, a Rat snake was found in a desk drawer at the Food Corporation of India office in Mayapuri! The five-feet-long snake was rescued by expert snake rescuers from Wildlife SOS and later released in a safe habitat.

We rescued a Cobra snake from the Okhla Bird Sanctuary Metro station after it was spotted in the staff canteen. In another incident, a six-foot-long Rat snake was rescued from the Delhi Jal Board office, Chandrawal-Civil Lines and released back into a safe habitat.

The Taj Mahal received a surprising visitor too! A five-foot long rat snake was rescued by our Rapid Response Unit after it was sighted at the West Gate of the national monument. The snake was kept under observation for a few hours and later released back into its natural habitat.

We also rushed to the rescue of a Wolf snake found inside the engine of a Hyundai sedan from Greater Kailash-2 , New Delhi! The snake was later safely released in a safe habitat.

Right ahead of Independence Day, a five-foot-long Cobra we rescued a five-foot-long Cobra from a grocery store in Bhagalpur located in Kuberpur village, Agra. The venomous snake was later safely relocated to its natural habitat.
