Rescue and Rehabilitation for All Animals
  • Crisis: Crisis: In India, we still witness a gaping hole when it comes to providing basic facilities to animals overall. To help local strays left to die on the roadside, weak from starvation and infested with maggots, Plant and Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) was founded in 2001 with a vision to give a voice to any animal in distress and enabling a compassionate society for all animals.
  • Programs: PAWS is currently running a fully operational Rescue Center in Murbad, Thane with a fleet of 3 ambulances. It offers the following services: 1) Rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of abandoned animals, 2) Providing first-aid treatment to injured stray animals on the road; 3) Sterilization and vaccination to all strays against rabies; 4) Investigation of cruelty cases against animals including inspection of circuses and zoos; 5) Keeping a watch on illegal wildlife trade wildlife; 6) Conducting awareness workshops for sensitizing communities about the importance of animal welfare and wildlife co-existence.
  • Outcome: Since establishment, 38,150 animals have been healed and helped. At least, 4000+ individuals are sensitized towards Animal Care per year by PAWS with assistance of more than 300 volunteers.
