Introduction: "Karuna" for animal in distress is a registered charitable society working for the welfare of mute and innocent animals. The organization was founded by Mr. Arvind Shah in January 1999 with the aim of caring for the sick and injured animals in misery. The organization has made restless efforts to improve the standard of animal care and rights. Starting with a work force of 4 people and only one animal ambulance van, the organization now has strength of 50 people and 10 animal ambulance vans operating in areas from Bandra to Dahisar and Mulund to Chembur, with head office in Andheri (W), the organization has its branches spread over in Ghatkopar, Goregaon, Mulund, Bhiwandi, Mumbai Central, Thane, etc. Two more to start soon at Virar and Malad
Activities: The organization makes concrete efforts for rescue and treatment of animals in trouble. To support the cause of animal welfare Karuna also promotes the ideology of Vegetarianism. The organization creates awareness of animal rights to eradicate cruelty on animals. If necessary law enforcement is also done to ensure the safety of animals. Activities like adoption & re-homing of animals, rehabilitation of wild animals and pet counseling are also undertaken.

The organization also works for creating love and understanding towards animals through the medium of nature and environment education. Various activities and campaigns are undertaken with educational and financial institutions to promote the insights of Karuna. The organization makes note worthy efforts by training volunteers as paramedics. The volunteers learn first aid techniques, which enables them to care for sick and injured animals.

How can you help: The trust has helped over one-lakh animals in distress till date. There is a constant need of donations to keep running the animal ambulances constantly.
