People for Animals
People for Animals is the largest Indian animal welfare organization having a network of 26 hospitals, 165 units and 2.5 lakh members. PFA’s main cause is rescue and rehabilitation of fragile animals. PFA’s aim is to establish an animal rescue centre in 600 districts of the nation. They have established shelters, ambulance services, disaster rescue, sterilization and treatment camps for animals. Along with the animal welfare services, PFA conducts educational programs in schools and fights for animal causes and laws in Parliament. It has a solution for all those people who love owning a pet but due to some issues is unable to- you can sponsor the expenditure of an animal weekly or yearly. Also, it has the facility of enrolling as a member.
The concept of pet adoption is emerging in India and there are numerous organization and portals promoting and supporting this cause. Although we as a nation are progressing in terms of sensitivity towards animals yet a lot of work needs to be done in this area. Even if we are unable to adopt a pet, we could do our bit by being volunteers or donating money; it is a misconception that one needs to earn in lakhs to donate we can donate a meager amount of 5 rupees. It is a very small amount, and it has no value but trust me every penny counts. And we all want to leave a mark on this world, right? So why not helping the lives of animals.
