In a statement about the upcoming launch, Ratan Tata, the Chairman of Tata Trusts, remarked, "Pets are our family, and their lives matter to every pet parent. When I looked around and saw the lack of infrastructure for pets in India, it made me wonder why, in such a large country with a significant pet population, we cannot have a facility that can save lives and make pets' lives better. The Small Animal Hospital aims to be one such facility with specialised facilities to provide every pet with care, love, and a human approach." 

The launch will happen in stages, with only some facilities including Emergency & Critical Care triage and treatment services, Inpatient and ICU units (including isolation units), Surgical Services (Soft Tissue Surgery, Orthopedics, etc.), Pharmacy Services; Support Functions such as Diagnostics - Radiology & Imaging (MRI, X-Ray, CT Scan & USG), Laboratory - Hematology, Microbiology, Cytology, Clinical Pathology, Biochemistry, Histo-pathology, and Anaesthesia.

It aims to be a leading center for animal welfare, filling the gap in quality pet care in the country.
