Meet the team

These amazing people save lives every day.

Our team of 100 incredible staff hail from nearby villages and distant cities. Each one performs vitally important jobs from dressing wounds to cleaning kennels; from rescuing to feeding. They provide gentle care, hard work in all seasons, and plenty of humor, making Animal Aid an incredibly cheerful working environment.

Watch a tribute to our wonderful staff

Our caregivers

Caregivers feed, shampoo, clean areas, and wrap their arms around animals one by one throughout each day. In addition to filling water bowls or changing bedding, they're often the first to notice changes in an animal's condition--they see who ate and who didn't; they encourage first steps, report signs of improvement and always add love to the medicine.

Our rescue team

From 7AM to midnight our 20 rescuers coax and comfort frightened animals, search under bushes, descend wells, climb trees--doing whatever it takes to rescue every suffering animal they can. Our 4 dispatchers receive up to 150 calls each day, treating each call with importance and ensuring the rescue of the most urgently ill and injured patients first.

Our very first employee

In a place where many people have never pet a dog, Kamla names and loves every single dog of her village. The first employee of Animal Aid, she opened the way to many other staff, particularly women, who have joined over the years. You can hear her voice all over the shelter when she’s talking to the animals.

Our HR and admin team

The invisible force, they work behind the scenes to ensure our pharmacy is always stocked, the facilities are well maintained, the database is updated, the salaries paid and that our Animal Aid family keeps growing with new staff bringing additional talents and great energy. Perhaps you won’t see them in our videos, but without them we couldn't save the animals.

Our medical team

Under the supervision of our medical director and supervisor, our team of nurses and assistants provide life-saving treatment to the 450 ever-changing patients at the hospital and dogs in our Spay and Neuter Center, and even directly on the streets through the Street Treatment program. They perform sterilizations and other life-saving surgeries every day.

Growing with us

Mangilal joined the Animal Aid family in 2006 as a fresh vet nurse with almost no experience handling or treating animals. A sharp student, Mangilal learned quickly and is now an expert in a vast array of skills and a has huge body of experience in trauma care and surgery assistance. He sets a sterling example of dedication for the many young nurses for whom Mangilal is both teacher, supervisor and friend.

Our outreach and education team

The moment you step in our center you will be greeted by a smiling face and welcoming words. Our community relations team include volunteer coordinators and tour guides, cruelty response officers and educators.

They conduct compassion education in classrooms, dog bite prevention and counselling for people afraid of dogs; they meet with animal lovers and activists and responds to cruelty cases with a deep commitment to change the way our society perceives and protects animals.

Our video and social media team

Animal Aid’s rescue work is known around the world with over 2 billion views of our rescue videos. Our ambulances are equipped with a camera and rescues are recorded by the rescuers. Our video and photography team carefully documents the treatments and edits them to tell stories that inspire compassion and protection for animals.
