Sandeep Sibal, Co-Founder, India Animal Fund joins #FreedomForAll telethon and explains how his organisation helps the cause of animal welfare

India Animal Fund is a donation platform that connects donors with nonprofits that are working on various aspects of the animal welfare sector. While on the one hand animal suffering is arguably much greater in terms of scale and intensity as compared to human suffering, we know that the funds that corporates devote to animal welfare is about 1/2 a percent of the funds that are devoted to human welfare, and while I don't have the numbers I suspect this is true of individual donations too.

There is a dire need to mainstream animal welfare, and bring it front and center - out from the shadows of human welfare which is where it is often situated.

One of the biggest challenges in animal welfare is connecting donors with appropriate NGOs that are working on causes and projects that donors care about. These include farm animal welfare, rescue and relief, law enforcement etc.

We also help monitor projects done by our NGO partners to ensure that funds are used effectively and efficiently. We also help identify projects based on impact, neglectedness, and tractability to help prioritise which set of projects may best align with them. There are an extremely diverse set of causes and projects for donors to choose from, and I'd like to invite all those watching the show tonight to browse through these causes and projects on our fledgling website, and maybe select one or more to contribute to.

About The Campaign

About The Campaign

We cage animals, we test on animals, we hunt animals, we kill animals.

The scale and intensity of animal suffering is far greater than any other form of suffering.

And yet it is a suffering that goes unnoticed by most of us.

Animals globally are in dire need of aid & support from the cruelty that they endure each day. The statistics are appalling & the resolve is barely skimming the surface.

Millions of animals suffer inhuman treatment as a result of illegal trade and poaching, reckless breeding, farm agriculture and lab experiments. The laws that protect animals are archaic, there is poor compliance, and existing facilities and infrastructure at animal shelters are below par, and too few in number.

Despite this animal harm & exploitation on a massive scale, financial support for animal welfare causes is less than 1% of the amount that comes in for human causes.

Animal welfare should concern us all. Human health issues, environmental degradation, global warming and challenges of animal well-being are all interconnected. There is an imminent need to be aware of  and to adopt an one health approach. For one to be healthy, the planet and all living beings on it need to be healthy.

The India Animal Fund Freedom For All campaign envisions a world free of animal harm and exploitation which prioritizes ending the suffering of all sentient beings independent of species.

The campaign aims to provide a platform for effective giving that produces transparent, independent, evidence-based and actionable recommendations of interventions/ organizations to demonstrably reduce animal suffering in India.

It’s now time to fight for the dignity of animal life. It’s now time to treat all sentient beings with compassion.

Join hands with the India Animal Fund Freedom For All campaign to help animals. They only have us for support.
