Volunteering at the shelter

Animal shelters world over appreciate and require all the help they can get right from monetary to the helping hands which come forward to not only lessen their burden from time to time but also give the animals at the shelter a hope at life, a hope at kindness and a new perspective to look at humans as a race. Whether you are a local or an esteemed guest visiting Varanasi for the spiritual experience, trust us, our four legged friends have their own pearls of wisdom to offer about this thing called life and the elements of it. Their struggles, stories of resilience and their strength, which are nothing but awe inspiring leading to an enriching experience, we promise you that. Having faced all possible odds in their short lives and yet wagging their tails accompanied by grinning smiles with such energy, the tailspower of which if harnessed can power an entire city and giving us valuable life lessons.

Every animal has his or her story, his or her thoughts, daydreams, and interests. They all feel joy and love, pain and fear. They deserve respect, to be cared for in the same way as a human would care for one of their kind.


Animals are capable of unconditional love, they are forgiving, caring, life-affirming creatures who humble us and teach us to be more human and compassionate.


Animals, they are one of the most beautiful gifts we have and, you know, if there are people that have compassion, there are very few who put their money into animal rescue organizations. And if there is someone who has that passion, animals need all the help they can get.
