November 4, 2020 | By Smriti Suri

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

Agra & Mathura in Uttar Pradesh – +91-9917109666

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!


In a busy month for the Rapid Response Unit, we rescued over 467 animals from various situations of distress!

Popular Bollywood actress Sonal Chauhan reached out to Wildlife SOS after she found a juvenile baby Common Tailorbird injured in her garden. The bird was immediately rescued and brought to Wildlife SOS for further care and recuperation.

A five-foot-long Indian Cobra snake created quite the stir at the Inner Ring Road ADA Toll Plaza on the Agra- Lucknow Highway earlier in the month. The snake was safely rescued by us along with a four-foot-long Checkered Keelback snake from a country boat at Runakta Ghat, Agra.

Imagine taking a load of clothes for laundry and opening the washing machine to find a snake curled up inside it! In a rather bizzare incident, a five-foot long black-headed royal snake was found inside a washing machine in Jahangirpuri, Delhi on Friday evening. We rescued the distressed snake Wildlife SOS and later released it into the wild.

Our team in association with the GSPCA team & the Vadodara Wildlife Division seized over fifty illegal ‘house pets’ including Indian Star Tortoises, Rose-Ringed Parakeets & Alexandrine Parakeets in Vadodara, Gujarat, a raid that caused quite the flutter in three areas of Vadodara – Ajwa, Gorwa and Chhani.

We also rushed to the rescue of a nearly 4-foot long mugger crocodile in association with the Forest Department after it was sighted in a pond in Farenda village located in Jasrana, Firozabad district. The reptile was successfully rescued and later released into Yamuna River, in the presence of Forest officials, on Thursday.
