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.

Animals and the environment in India are in serious need of help. Poverty, apathy, hunger, superstition, pollution, overpopulation and simple ignorance are some of the reasons the animals and ecosystems there are in such peril.
Help Animals India is a wonderful non-profit (not a single volunteer or worker gets a salary, 100% of donation go directly to animal rescue in India) that fights to help protect animals and bring about environmental awareness. The charities that Help Animals India supports recycle cow dung to produce bio-gas to make energy. This bio-gas reduces the need for electricity and can be used for cooking and helps the local communities.
Garbage and waste are another huge issue in India. plastic bags line the streets and animals from dogs to cows frequently ingest them, causing a plethora of health problems and painful deaths. Help Animals India supports surgery to remove plastics and garbage from the stomachs of animals, who would otherwise die. This also brings about more public awareness to the issues of non-biodegradable waste.
Help Animals India is doing the best they can within a poor and polluted country to inspire social awareness and action to protect the planet and animals that we share it with!

One of my Indian penfriends, who funds most of her animal care herself recently observed that it's people in the West who provide more care and funds for Indian animal welfare than Indians themselves. She was, of course, referring in part to Help Animals India, who step in and support where help is most needed. It might be kitten formula being shipped to where it can't be bought, money for a cart for a paralysed dog, funds for vaccines or ABC. Animals with special needs can be cared for in sanctuaries, providing there are sufficient funds. Some organisations have received money from HAI to buy vehicles to catch and release the animals for neutering, and animal ambulances for casualties. I donate to Help Animals India because I know my money is always well used, and a little goes a long way in rupees!

Having been involved with Visakha India since the first tsumani devastated their work I would say that they are one of the best animal welfare groups that I have worked with. Their gentleness, kindness and compassion shines through and I have always received personal thanks from Pradeep who I consider to be an extraordinary human being. This small animal protection group has achieved great things in a poor country and I honour them and will continue my support whenever I can. They are the the manifestation of Ahimsa in its highest form. Blessings, Jean X

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.
