We do not encourage donating medical items because we have specific protocols for medical supplies.

We don’t provide accommodation, but there are many hotels in Udaipur at all price ranges.
We are located about 25 minutes from the historic part of Udaipur (the Old City) which is where most of our volunteers like to stay. There are few options close to Animal Aid.
The best place for recommendations is our Animal Aid Unlimited Volunteers group on Facebook, where many past and future volunteers share experiences about where they have previously stayed or will stay.
Kids above 14 can volunteer with a parent or guardian accompanying them at all times.
Children ages 8 to 14 can visit the shelter and go on a tour, but they won’t be able to volunteer. There will be limited access to the areas but they are welcome to stay up to half a day with our friendly sheep, goats and calves with parental supervision.
No, volunteering is free!
We do not have volunteer positions open for short-term veterinary nurses or doctors, but if you are interested in long-term volunteering (6 months or more), please write to us at [email protected].
Go to our Report an injured or ill animal in Udaipur page to read about rescuing an animal.
Please do not directly bring an animal to Animal Aid without calling on our helpline for instructions. Not every animal needs to be, or should be brought for treatment, many can be treated directly on the street by our Street Treatment Team.
If you are a non-Hindi speaking foreigner, ask for the assistance of a local person to speak with our helpline call attendant to explain the exact location and other information.
For visiting an animal admitted in Animal Aid, opening hours are from 2PM to 4PM. Bring along with you the animal’s rescue identification number which you will have received via Whatsapp message at the time of rescue. This ensures that we can locate this animal within our hospital.
For bringing an injured animal to Animal Aid, visit our Report an injured or ill animal in Udaipur page and call on our helpline for instructions.
