Jayasimha Nuggehalli, Founder, India Animal Fund joins #FreedomForAll telethon and talks about animal suffering in India


In my line of work, I have visited a lot of factory farms as well as abattoirs in my life, across the globe. A lot of time, when you step out of a slaughterhouse, you have seen a lot of suffering and you are like, oh well, it is over for the animals, they don't continue to suffer. But when you walk into a factory farm, hens are confined in cages where they are given less than A4 size sheet paper their entire life. When you walk into a tabela or dairy farm where these animals are tethered so much that they can't even move. You have cubs who are day old been sent to slaughter.

To know that this suffering kind of continues when you step out of the farm as well. When you just look at everything that we do to animals as human beings, what happens in factory farms is just inexcusable and we just continue to do this with just the idea that we need to be producing cheap meat. And all of this is being done under the pretext of food security. When you really look at science, that actually says that intensive animal agriculture hurts the food security of a particular nation. It only puts food in places where there is excess nutrition. It hurts farmers and small families. It creates a huge amount of issue when it comes to air quality. I do think that many a times death is probably the best thing that happens to these animals. 

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.
