1. Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre
India’s oldest and Asia’s largest all-animal shelter, the Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre (SGACC) was founded in 1980 from a legacy bequeathed by the late Mrs Ruth Cowell of New South Wales, Australia to Sanjay Gandhi.
A foundation set up in her memory, The Ruth Cowell Foundation, resolved to establish an animal care centre in Delhi that would serve as a prototype for other centres around India. The hospital-cum-shelter was envisaged as a 24×7 facility that would rescue, home, treat, and rehabilitate animals; serve as a training centre for vets and animal handlers; run an OPD; offer diagnostic services; provide burial facilities; and serve as a holding centre for animals of cruelty cases.
Inaugurated in September 1983, the SGACC is home to over 3000 animals at any given point. Spread over four acres of tree covered land in West Delhi’s Raja Garden, between Shivaji College and the Home Guards’ HQ, it assures space in a secure natural environment for animals and birds.

5. Delhi the Street Dog Foundation
Delhi the Street Dog Foundation was established in 2018 to address and combat the overwhelming stray street dog population in India. The Founder, Jessica Haltzman, was navigating a soul searching, solo-backpacking trip in New Delhi, India in 2017. While she was only hoping for a greater sense of self in her return home, she managed to not only find herself and her passion, but her forever best friend, Delhi the Street Dog.
While sitting in her hostel in New Delhi, Jessica was startled by horrific sounds of yelping and crying. Running out of her hostel not knowing what situation she was about to encounter, was a small puppy with a large wound, limping on his back leg. Jessica immediately took the aching puppy to a local veterinarian, whom helped clean the wound and bandages his leg. Jessica couldn’t bear the thought of leaving this puppy in his fragile state and made the decision that she was going to take this puppy home. All the way to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
