Animal Welfare Trust is an animal sanctuary near Jharkhand, whose mission is to maintain a gentle, nurturing, loving and compassionate sanctuary for old, sick, abandoned, and lonely animals. We believe every animal that comes through our gates is a sentient being who has the right to a life without fear and exploitation. It is worthy of quality care, good nutrition, medical attention, and love.
The COVID -19 pandemic has impacted negatively on India’s animal population and the work of Animal Welfare Trust. Animals have lost their access to human interaction and most importantly, food and water on the streets due to the curfew and lockdown. With restaurants and shops closed, food
is now not available to them.
- Rescuing stray, old, sick, blind or abandoned animals, both large and small, who have been victims of abuse, cruelty or accidents and cannot survive on their own
- Providing quality medical care (including surgeries).
- Looking after the medical needs of the outpatients brought in by people from the surrounding villages and ensuring quality care is provided to non-resident animals
- Providing quality nutritional care (regular food but also vitamin and mineral supplements plus treats) to keep the animals energetic, content, and happy.
- Seeking redressal for cruelty done against animals
- Running an adoption program to find suitable and loving homes for our pets
- Running an open sanctuary for outside visitors, local villagers and volunteers to educate people in animal husbandry and organic sustainable farming practices. To allow children and adults to get over their fear of dogs and other animals by creating safe spaces.
- More recently for volunteers and staff to act as advocates to destigmatize animals as vectors of a human virus based on the most up to date WHO medical evidence.
