Community Animals

Caring for the abandoned, who are homeless on the streets out of fate, not choice.

Large and small animal sanctuary, technical animal rescue

Community animals or domestic animals include cows, bulls, horses, donkeys, goats and sheep, dogs, cats and domestic birds. Several large animals are abandoned after they are past their milking and working age and some merely abandoned on the streets when their owners are unable to look after them. Depending on the resources available (personnel, funds and admission space), we provide treatment and lifetime care and shelter for these animals.

Lifetime Sanctuary Care

Large and small animal lifetime care sanctuary

Several large animals end up on the streets and often become victims of road accidents or ingest foreign bodies like plastic waste (over 50-60 kilograms are sometimes removed from one animals’ stomach!). Our teams rescue such animals, aid them with life-saving treatment and care. RESQ currently provides support for lifetime care to over 1200 abandoned cows and buffaloes, 10 horses, 5 donkeys, 26 ducks, 37 goats and sheep, 3 camels and 30 dogs and cats in Pune district. Small domestics are housed at our facility in Pune where treatment and care of large animals is also done. Post-recovery, large animals are housed for lifetime sanctuary and cared for with our support at our partner organisations near Talegaon.
