Today, Sunday 4 October, we celebrate Animal Welfare Day. There is need of organizations for animal welfare and prevent them from extinction. There are number of NGOs in India in which following are the most effective organizations:
- Animal Aid Unlimited.
“Together To Protect Animals”
In 2002, the founder family of this NGO established Udaipur’s first and only shelter and hospital for ownerless animals. As word spread, a few rescue requests a week became more than 100 calls each day. Tens of thousands of animals have been rescued and saved, and the community’s compassion has blossomed into action.
2. People For Animals
Founded in 1996 by Namrata Dugar, Alpana Bhartia, Gauri Maini Hira and Arushi Poddar, People for Animals, Bengaluru, is a non-profit animal welfare organization, formed under the nationwide initiative and vision of Mrs. Maneka Gandhi. Provide timely, specialized veterinary care to injured urban wild animals, rehabilitate them, and then release them into their natural or adoptive habitats. Create awareness, amongst citizens of all ages and backgrounds, about urban wildlife, and to instill a deep regard for their cohabitation needs and when to actively engage in their welfare.
3. Wildlife SOS India.
Wildlife SOS was established in 1995 by a small group of individuals inspired to start a movement and make lasting change to protect and conserve India’s natural heritage, forest and wildlife wealth. Today, the organization has evolved to actively work towards protecting Indian wildlife, conserving habitat, studying biodiversity, conducting research and creating alternative.
4. Red Paws Rescue.
The organization from its humble beginning is the vision of Sadhwi Sondhi who at the young age of only seventeen decided to create awareness to the plight of stray and abandoned animals in New Delhi by starting up her very own NGO. She has always been passionate about helping animals and is an avid animal rights advocate. Red Paws Rescue is closely associated with several animal shelters throughout the country and we assist in providing homes for the abandoned and stray animals. We believe that every single effort made by people to help animals takes the cause for the ethical treatment of animals one step further.
5. Visakha Society for Protection and Care of Animals (VSPCA India)
VSPCA is an international nonprofit dedicated to sustaining animal and plant life in Visakhapatnam that recognizes biodiversity as an essential aspect of human survival. They have more than thousand shelters for animals till now and rescued more than millions of animal beings.
