Introduction – The earth belongs to all living beings. The existence of animals is required for the smooth functioning of the entire eco system. Just like humans, animals feel pain, hunger and sorrow. Its time, we are all compassionate towards them.  We at Animals Matter To Me (Mumbai) aim to save the animals from starvation and disease. We serve animals by feeding them, taking care of their medical needs and finding homes for the abandoned ones.

[quote]Animals Matter To Me (Mumbai) is an ANIMAL WELFARE CHARITABLE TRUST that was created with the above aim. Through contributions from private individuals and organizations, the community maintains its dedication to animals.[/quote]

Our Current Activities 

1)      Rescue
We rescue injured and diseased animals from the streets of Mumbai. Medical treatment is provided by veterinary doctors and students who are part of our organization.

2)      Feeding
We feed more than 700 dogs and 150 cats at shelters by organizing a “FEEDING PROGRAMME” every Saturday between 1400hrs to 1800hrs where animal lovers, volunteers join hand and help feed these animals, spend quality time with them, play with them, shower them with love and give them a reason to be alive.

We invite you to witness the same at the following address every Saturday between 1400 hrs to 1800 hrs:
IDA Animal Birth Control and Health Care Center
Near Deonar Colony, Bainganwadi, Deonar,
Mumbai-400 088

3)      Adoptions
We try to get abandoned animals adopted. It’s difficult to believe, but owners do abandon their pure bred dogs like Labradors, German Shepherds etc, for lame reasons.
These animals are not used to surviving on the streets and need homes.

4)      Vaccinations, Sterlizations and Pet Licensing
We assist in vaccination and sterlizations of animals along with acquiring BMC licenses for dogs.
