Our Mission

To build an ecosystem that empowers India to protect the dignity of its animals.

Our Vision

A world free of animal harm & exploitation, which prioritises ending the suffering of all sentient beings, independent of species.

The Genesis

India Animal Fund (IAF) is a backbone organisation that matches funders with credible & capable implementation partners and helps deliver impact at scale for the most pressing animal welfare issues.

With the blessings of His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, and with the support of a galaxy of stars, subject matter experts and corporate leaders, India Animal Fund was launched on NDTV by Dr. Pranoy Roy, on the 30th of October 2022.

The Interconnectedness

The recent UN resolution recognises animal welfare’s role in sustainability via the following:

  • The health and welfare of animals, sustainable development and the health of the environment are connected to human health and well-being.
  • Animal welfare can contribute to addressing environmental challenges, promoting the “One Health” approach and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • There is a strong body of science supporting animal welfare.

Challenges & Opportunities

In agriculture or on farms, in the streets, in science, or in the kitchen, animals are subject to unimaginable exploitation and abuse every day, every hour, and even every second. Animals are sentient beings — they feel joy and suffering, among a host of other feelings. They deserve the right to live without fear, hunger, and confinement, leading a life of dignity.
It is time to stop the clock on animal cruelty and abuse. With YOUR support, we can make this change. Read through the causes we have chosen as areas to focus on, how we strategise, and build projects to redefine animal well-being.

There are hundreds and thousands of dogs and cats who are bereft of the opportunity to be a part of a loving home. I hope that this initiative is able to inspire us all to adopt dogs and cats in the country.
