Animal welfare is not just about animals. It is about us. Our living conditions, our children, our earth. Cruelty to animals has a significant and irreversible impact on peaceful societies, human health, the economy, and the environment.

People for Animals, PFA, is India's largest Non-Governmental Animal Welfare Organization with a nationwide network of 26 hospitals, 165 units, 60 mobile units, and 2.5 Lakh members. We work to rescue and rehabilitate sick and needy animals. We set up and run shelters, ambulance services, sterilization programs, treatment camps and disaster rescue missions for animals. We conduct education programs in schools, fight cases in court, and lobby on animal issues in parliament.

PFA aims to set up an animal welfare centre in each of the nation's 600 districts.
