As a human being, we have some responsibility towards the earth. So, we have some responsibility for the animal so that they can live peacefully.

An animal rescue group or animal rescue organization is dedicated to pet adoption. These groups take unwanted, abandoned, abused,   or stray pets and attempt to find suitable homes for them.

Animal rescue is a much needed social service that helps protect animals from dangerous situations that often involve cruelty and abuse. Many animals are turned into shelters due to evictions, expensive health concerns, or other unavoidable circumstances. Often it is easy to villain the people who surrender their animals, but as animal advocates, we must keep in mind that oftentimes people are surrendering as they believe it is best for the animal or they have tried everything else.

There are some common types of Animal Abuse:

I. Slaughter houses:

In the United States alone, excluding sea life and chickens, 165 million animals are slaughtered every year. The end-of-life experience for these animals is distressing with animals being handled roughly by overworked and underpaid employees. These animals are frequently still conscious when their moment of death comes due to failed stunning.

II. Animal Testing:

Determining the exact number of animals that suffer as a result of animal testing for cosmetics and medicine is difficult due to poor- recording-keeping protocols, estimates place the number globally in the tens of millions. These animals are subjected to diseases they would not have naturally contracted, chemicals, and all manner of physical and mental manipulation. Many of these animals will be unable to be re-homed following their service to science and will meet an ultimate death after their painful death.


  1. Adopt some animal as a family member - Next time we are considering growing our family with something scaly or feathered check shelters and rescues in our area before considering other options.
  2. Donate to some animal rescue organization - Donate some supplies or money to an animal rescue organization to help them.
  3. Take some steps for street animals - Try something for street dogs, or injured animals. An animal is also a part of our world.
  4. Report animal abuse when you see it - If suspect that you are witnessing, or have witnessed animal abuse reach out to your local animal shelter to discuss the situation and determine the next step.
  5. Keep your animals safe - Keeping the animals that you share your space with happy and healthy is one important way to help with animal rescue. By ensuring our animals are well loved and cared for we are leading by example and can make sure that we have a positive influence on those in our community.

Animal welfare is the well–being of non-human animals. Formal standards of animal welfare vary between contexts but are debated mostly by animal welfare groups, legislators, and academics. Animal welfare science uses measures such as longevity, and disease although there is debate about which of these best indicate animal welfare.

Animal welfare science is an emerging field that seeks to answer questions raised by the keeping and use of animals, such as whether hens are frustrated when confined in cages, whether the psychological well-being of animals in laboratories can be maintained, and whether zoo animals are stressed by the transport required of international conservation.

Animal welfare and rights in India regard the treatment of and laws concerning non-human animals in India. It is distinct from animal conservation in India.

India is home to several religious traditions advocating non-violence and compassion towards animals and has passed a number of animal reforms since 1960. India is also one of the world’s leading producers of animal products. Naresh Kadyan , Chief National Commission along with Mrs. Sukanya Berwal, Commission on Education.
