The Directory of Over 280 Animal Rights Organisations in India

If you are reading this, chances are, that you are already associated with the Indian Animal Rights Community and hence would understand the importance of connecting within the community one another at good times and bad. Some of the most successful people in world history have passed on their wisdom on the importance of this one word- NETWORKING.

But networking can be hard, when we don’t know each other! In FIAPO’s attempt to bring together a platform to help us connect, enriching self through collaborative learning and experiences, I am delighted to present to you the directory of animal rights organisations in India – its first draft is available here- http://www.fiapo.org/our-network/our-members and we will keep growing and adding to it as we come across more NGOs.

By means of action, FIAPO is constantly engaging with stakeholders collaboratively or confrontationally through research, lobbying and education. We work with, and build the movement through networking, training, direct action and mobilisation. Created for the movement, by the movement, we now have over 80 members and over 200 supporter organisations on board, across the country.

Some organisations are animal rescue centers, some have a humane education emphasis; some are experienced and some are newly-established, but each share in common the desire to reduce and end animal suffering at all levels—from street dogs to dairy cows; from wildlife protection to saving marine animals; from zoos and circuses to animals used in laboratory experiments.

I’d like to take this opportunity to invite more animal rights organisations working primarily for animal rights in India and join the NGO-network of animal rights workers, activists, supporters, advocates, campaigners for the rights of animals in India- http://www.fiapo.org/apply-for-membership/

If you believe in justice for animals, add your voice to the growing movement!
