AnimalShield is 100 % volunteer-run and works for animals in India. We were earlier working as ‘ABFeedAStray’. Since 2017, ABFeedAStray had been providing food and medical treatment to stray animals but I knew it wasn’t enough. I’d wanted to help animals beyond my community so I registered my nonprofit as AnimalShield (www.animalshield.org) to include all animal and bird species under our mission.
Shield animals in Communities- It is not about animals. It is about all of us. If stray animals are neglected then it impacts the surroundings and the public health. We support individuals and animal welfare groups that help animals by providing them food and water, timely medical aid to sick and needy animals, vaccinate and conduct spay/neuter programs to control their population, and fund emergency cases.
Shield animals in Disasters- When hurricanes, floods, volcanoes, and earthquakes strike a landscape, it not only impacts humans but animals also suffer. Most of the time, animals are a source of livelihood for people living in remote areas of affected zones. Since animals are less noticed during the aftermath, they starve or suffer from injury or disease and die. We work together with relief groups to protect, rescue, and care for animals when a disaster hits.
Shield animals in the wild- We focus on two major problems challenging wildlife today.
First, 60% of wildlife has been lost since 1970 because of Climate Change and Habitat Destruction. Rampant deforestation of forests, overexploitation of natural resources is being done to pave the path for animal farming, construction of buildings and roads, etc. Moreover, as human populations expand and habitats shrink, human-animal conflicts are increasing in villages and small towns. We inspire and mobilize people to change their behavior, harness their support for our campaigns, and ultimately make a lasting impact on animals and the planet.
Second, millions of tonnes of plastic and other wastes, are abandoned, lost, or discarded annually in sea impacting hundreds of marine animals, including whales, seals, turtles, and birds, that routinely become entangled in abandoned wastes. We persuade the public to become strong supporters of marine animals and help local groups to remove plastic from our oceans and beaches. We identify and drive the solutions that will reduce and remove plastic from our oceans and rescue millions of marine animals.
Spread awareness about animal abuse happening in entertainment, sports, food, testing, fashion, puppy mills industries.
The consumer demand for animals' related entertainment experiences, exotic pets, trophies, or luxury products made from animals, is growing rapidly. This demand is often motivated by a love for animals and a lack of awareness of their suffering, but when people know about the cruelty involved they change their behaviors. Our choices define the lives of millions out there. We educate people about their plight and encourage them to choose wisely and responsibly.
As we work towards our goals, the expenses are also increasing. The last few months have been tough, because of the COVID-19 lockdown, the count of animals we’ve been feeding has increased. We can’t neglect an animal when we know he is starving from hunger. We need money to continue doing what we do. Every month, we have to buy food, pay our cook, staff who drive to all areas to feed animals, get medicines, spay-neuter, and do emergency rescues.
We’ve already fed more than 500 animals so far. We continue to feed stray animals in areas of Dwarka, Delhi, and Kharar, Punjab.
We’ve provided life-threatening care to more than 100 animals so far and basic medical care to a countless number of street animals.
We understand the importance of spay-neuter, hence, most of the street animals who we feed are spayed. We’re now going to take a big step and starting July we’re going to create puppy-free zones. We’re going to select an area and spay-neuter all stray animals living there.
Winters in Northern India can be cruel, it is hard not to think about how difficult it is for stray animals who have no way to escape the cold when winter rears its ugly head. We’ve so far provided warmth to 110 animals through 50 coats, 45 blankets, 2 tarps, and numerous jute bags.
We partnered with other welfare groups to protect, rescue, and care for animals in Orissa when cyclone Fani struck India’s east coast last year.
We partnered with other welfare groups to provide food for those in need, person, or animal when super cyclone Amphan struck India’s east coast this year.
