On July 3, 2012, heavy rain fell in Mumbai for the second day, resulting in many distressed birds being received at PAWS (Plant and Animal Welfare Society) center.

Some of the birds who were uninjured were released in suitable habitat. This kite and several pigeons were sent to Thane SPCA, also in Mumbai, for rehabilitation and eventual release.

PAWS rescues many wild birds, snakes and other wildlife, as well as dogs, cats, and other domestic animals.
