Community Stray Animal Welfare Program

Date grant awarded: August 7, 2019

Having been raised in the neighborhood of Indiranagar in Bangalore, the main impetus for starting the Community Stray Animal Welfare Program was to bring people to be patient and tolerant towards stray animals and see them as in transit rather than a permanent problem. As part of the initiative, we organize Animal Birth Control (ABC) and Anti-Rabies Vaccination (ARV) drives. We also provide for any emergent medical care that is needed for the animals.

The team believes that the most important facet of our work is engaging with community residents to raise awareness about the laws that govern stray animal welfare in the country. Since the inception of the program in 2013, the neighborhood stray dog population has been under check and there is less human-animal conflict.
