Our mission is to treat sick and injured street animals at our
facility Aashiayana and keep them till they recover and are able
to fend for themselves.
Street abandoned animals need to be dealt with compassion and VCARE works towards alleviating their misery
by providing veterinary services and shelter. We also conduct educational and sensitisation programs with
young school children and the public at large.
VCARE believes that love for animals and concern for their welfare can exist only in a rational environment and by scientifically working towards less exploitative methods . Problems in animal welfare issues where there are conflicts of interests in animal welfare issues must be resolved through education, counselling and consensus.
VCARE is not affiliated with any Political party and is not influenced in its acts or work by any political party or
religions. It carries out work only for the well being of animals.
