Volunteer India, Animal Rescue project is a vital rescue center, hospital and sanctuary for injured and ill street animals in Udaipur, India. We rescue thousands of hurt and sick animals each year and provide sanctuary to those who need life-long care.

  • Physical therapy for dogs with spinal injuries helping them learn to walk again

  • Feeding in the dog kennels and identifying those who are not eating
  • Giving special food and encouragement to those in the dog kennels who are not eating
  • Spending quality one-on-one time with a depressed animal that needs love and support to heal faster
  • Assisting in cow and donkey treatment (sometimes it takes up to five people to treat an especially large cow or bull)
