The History of Help Animals India

Eileen Weintraub

Love for animals is universal, and there are good people helping animals all over the world.

An animal advocate since childhood, I started helping animal groups in India in 1998. It was on a visit to India in 2003 that I discovered the existing animal welfare groups of people helping animals against all odds. I was so deeply impressed by the many ways these dedicated people were making a difference for the animals of India that I decided to help in any way I could.

In the years since, I have revisited the shelters almost yearly while fundraising and advocating from my home in the United States.

India’s animals and animal protectors face great challenges. But India's constitution asserts that its citizens have a “Duty of Compassion to Animals.”€ This has resulted in some of the world’s most advanced animal rights and protection laws. And while the enforcement of these laws has been another matter, the Indian animal protection and advocacy groups through their relentless efforts to identify animal law violations and engage with local law enforcement authorities, has repeatedly proven itself up to the task.
