The Federation of Indian Animals Protection Organisations (FIAPO) is India’s most comprehensive NGO-network of animal protection workers, activists, supporters, advocates, campaigners for the protection of animals in India.

By becoming a member, one can increase our opportunities to communicate; to learn from and teach each other; to understand the differences and to work collectively to elevate the standard of care and level of knowledge related to animal welfare in India under an umbrella of unity. This unity is expressed in our will to protect animals from human and natural disasters, from exploitation and abuse in all spheres and fields, including animals used for food and fibre, companion animals, wildlife, animals used in entertainment and animals used in experiments and research.

We want to help improve the conditions of the animals in India and support the local grassroots groups that are working hard to help the voiceless animals. FIAPO’s membership has been created to achieve this. FIAPO’s members are currently comprised of animal shelters, animal rescue organisations, vegan outreach groups and wildlife groups involved in animal protection across India.
