Animal Rahat: Changing Minds, Changing Practices

Posted by at 11:17 AM | Permalink | Comments (2)


Animal Rahat is a unique program that aims to help some of the most neglected animals in the world—the bullocks, donkeys, and other working animals in India.

One of the more common sights in India is that of a bullock trudging along in the heat, straining under a heavy yoke to pull an overloaded, poorly balanced cart. These gentle animals often suffer from dehydration, untreated sores, and muscle strain, and sometimes they are subjected to frequent beatings.

Animal Rahat was founded in 2003 to provide these animals with relief. This lifesaving program now offers services throughout three districts in Maharashtra, one of the largest states in India. Animal Rahat is run by a dedicated staff that includes veterinarians, veterinary assistants, animal caretakers, and a full-time community educator. All of Animal Rahat’s veterinarians are on call for emergencies and advice around the clock, every day of the year.

    Thank you to every one at Animal Rahat for helping save\animals that are so neglected that most time Rahats help is the only reason that they are alive. I donate to them because I know what great work they do. If everyone would just send a donation(what ever the amount) animals would have better lives which they all deserve. We all must do a better job to make this earth a better place for animals and humans alike
