RESQ @ Jeevraksha

Jeevraksha @ 4, Queens Garden! 

Every animal lover in Pune City knows or has heard of Lila Parulekar and that Jeevraksha is the home of this legendary animal activist and the animals she looked after.


There has been years of ill health and litigation surrounding her. In October 2015, the High Court ordered the Lila Parulekar Welfare Trust that Jeevraksha animals should remain there and to look into the well-being of the animals, they should appoint an organization on the basis of experience, reputation, integrity and impartiality.

ResQ and CCC (Canine Control and Care) have now been appointed to look after Lila Parulekar’s animals at Jeevraksha. Today, Lila is practically bed-ridden where she cannot be with her animals physically but we are certain she will sense that her animals are being well taken care of.

After an initial assessment and a few days of work, we have envisioned our goal for the first 6 months at Jeevraksha and in saying so, we request for all the love and support we can get from every animal lover out there for an animal lover who dedicated her life to these animals.


Lila’s animals at Jeevraksha must have a better living environment and be healthy, vaccinated, neutered and happy.

 To achieve this we have 5 main tasks:

  1. Survey: Tag and photo-document every one of Lila’s animals

  2. Medical Aid: For the injured, sick and suffering animals at Jeevraksha

  3. Neuter and Vaccinate: Surgeries by CCC with support and management from RESQ
