Rescues in India: Animal Aid Unlimited Udaipur

Animal Aid Unlimited ( is a US-based 501(c)3 charitable organization that runs a busy animal hospital and shelter in Udaipur, Rajasthan India, where ownerless street animals are rescued, healed, loved, and returned to the neighborhoods from where they came.

Animal Aid’s purpose is to both bring relief to suffering animals, and to awaken compassion among people. Showing everyone a path for action is where we begin.

Did you ever scratch a donkey under his chin? Have you ever bottle fed a baby goat? Ever helped a dog who lost her leg learn to walk again?

At Animal Aid, it’s easy to do beautiful work. Each day, about 200 animals are treated and encouraged to thrive. Animal Aid runs a busy helpline and rescue programme for injured and ill ownerless street animals in Udaipur. Each year we respond to more than 3,000 calls reporting animal suffering, with cases ranging from a cow hit by a car, to a dog with a maggot-infested wound, to cases of abuse. With invaluable support from donors, volunteers, and Udaipur locals, Animal Aid has rescued more than 25,000 animals since 2002. There is also a sanctuary for cows, dogs, donkeys and other animals who are permanently injured and cannot survive on their own.

There are several ways to volunteer, at the shelter or from home . Do look at the website to see their work, opportunities, information about sponsoring an animal and more.
