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.

Help Animals India assists so many different animals and humans in so many areas that there is something for everybody! I appreciate that environmental concerns are part of all sanctuary plans and a holistic approach is always taken to benefit current and future populations. The groups also work on educating community members how to be better stewards for animals, in many cases animals that people depend on to earn their living. People may inquire, "Why help Indian animals when the problems are so great and there are animals here who need our help?" When you see the extreme minimum standards of living most animals in India experience and how far U.S. dollars go, you understand the answer to that question. It's not a matter of choosing animals over humans - Help Animals India works at creating better lives for individual animals and people but in the bigger picture, shows that we are all connected and that compassion transcends species.

Help Animals India knows the animal groups that it works with. And by providing grants for specific projects this organization has a definite and far reaching effect on improving the life of animals and the areas where they live. Every day when animals are treated humanely attitudes are changed and a culture of compassion progresses where it is sorely needed.
