Mission: The Challenge for India’s Animals Despite some of the best animal protection laws in the world and a renowned heritage of reverence for life, modern India is a country where millions of animals suffer severe neglect or abuse. Overpopulation, poverty, pollution, superstition, apathy and ignorance all contribute to their plight. In a country where human misery and impoverishment remain high, the welfare of destitute animals is a low priority. Help Animals India’s Contribution India’s animals have strong indigenous allies. The nation is blessed with many dedicated animal welfare organizations. Help Animals India seeks out the best of these under funded organizations to provide financial and practical assistance where it can make the most difference. We strive not only to achieve immediate benefits for India’s animals, but to nurture an enduring culture of animal protectionism. Our goal is for all animals to live the lives they would choose for themselves.
Results: We managed to buy 4 ambulances for the needy groups that had no vehicle to rescue animals with! We helped build and support a sanctuary for over 1300 animals - the VSPCA!
Programs: Spay/neuter and rabies vaccinate street dogs and cats; rescue animals from the street; rescue wildlife and prevent poaching; anti plastic bag campaign, promote vegan diet;

I especially care about animals in the so-called developing countries such as India because they are so often neglected and suffer so much. And the US dollar goes so much farther when donated to them. As a donor and an activist I choose to support organizations where I know every dollar goes very far to relieve suffering and Help Animals India is one of the best for that. 
I particularly like that they spend their time advising and directly helping the Indian charities, giving strength to the charities in India so that one day they will not need to fundraise from outside India.
Help Animals India is entirely transparent and is able to answer any question about the complex issues they advise on.

I am lucky to have found Help Animals India, I was so worried for the animals in India, now I have a peace of mind that Help Animals India is doing so much for India Animals. Help Animals India is really awesome and trustworthy, supporting several carefully researched and trusted NGOs in India. Eileen is humble and a very friendly person who updates the situations of the shelter animals, tells me more whenever I ask. Great to see the animals getting better and being fed and well taken care of. Help Animals India is definitely making the changes for India Animals by supporting Animal Birth Control program. Thank you Eileen and team members for working so hard to help the poor animals.

I traveled to Visakhapatnam, India to volunteer at this terrific animal shelter and found amazing people doing incredible work for the animals. The shelter is home to more than 6000 animals including Water Buffalo, Cows, Horses, Dogs, Cats, Star Tortoises, Guinea Pigs, Ducks and more. The animals live in excellent conditions and are well-loved by all the staff. Additionally, in the 15 years that the VSPCA has been operating, they have spayed, neutered and vaccinated over 70,000 street dogs! As a result, the condition of the street dogs in Visakhapatnam is better than any other city I visited in India. And the people are more kind to the animals, having seen the wonderful example set by the VSPCA.

For several years, I have followed the work of Help Animals India through their facebook page & website. I am very impressed by the help they give to several animal welfare groups which care for a variety of creatures. Almost every penny of each dollar donated goes directly to those in need. I appreciate that one of their projects, VSPCA, is very active with the green movement, especially at Kindness Farm. I plan to volunteer with VSPCA in the near future.

Help Animals India does an amazing job at supporting effective animal welfare works in India. They help many organizations with financial help which makes a huge difference to the animals. JBF today have an Ambulance for rescuing of suffering animals and also for undergoing “Humane Dog and Rabies Management Program”. This is because of HAI! This support gives a very positive impact in the organization and ultimately to our animal friends. ………….Dr. Sashanka with team JBF.

Considering and rating Animal Welfare Works as “Green”, Help Animals India for its unconditional love and compassion to the animal friends, rescuing animals and promoting adoption of animals is doing a great work of noble cause by supporting and funding for Animal Birth Control Program, education materials and ambulances and many more at various corners of the world. We salute HAI!

They are a truly honest and great rescue to support. You have to be careful, sadly so many don't do what they say they do, but over 98 or is it 99% of the $ you donate will go to do exactly what they say they are doing!Eileen is a person of great integrity and honoring her word, you can count on her and her great rescue. Thank you

Help Animals India does an amazing job at supporting effective rescues in India. The supported rescues and organizations all have succesfully made changes to the animals in their care and to the outlook towards animals in India. They are not focussed on just a certain set of animals, but on the bigger picture to bring about compassion in people for animals, people, as well as the environment, educate and increase the reach of veganism, illegal wildlife trade, green efforts and much more. You can track their efforts in each of the organizations and know that your donation is always very well used.
