  • Our Animal Birth Control (ABC) programme is fundamental to our work in South Goa. It’s the most humane, sustainable and impactful way of reducing the roaming dog population and the conflict they face with the local community.

  • We are dedicated to providing healthcare to animals with no one else to look after them. We are confronted by extremely advanced illnesses and injuries every day and we strive to help every animal in need.

  • We operate community outreach strategies with the aim of promoting better animal welfare standards in South Goa. We also work with our partners Vets and Wildlife to teach spaying and neutering to clinical veterinary students.

In August 2020, during the COVID-19 crisis, we made the brave decision to employ a full time vet. In a 'normal' year we rely on volunteer vets from abroad, part time local vets and our highly experienced team of veterinary assistants. However, as the effects of the COVID pandemic descended we realised if ARC was to be able to remain on the front-line, treating emergency cases and providing life-saving care, we HAD to employ our own dedicated vet.

And that's where Dr. Shailendra S Tiwari C.V.Sc & A.H, M.V.Sc stepped in. With over 10 years experience in animal birth control, treatment of sick and injured animals and teaching undergrad students, we knew he would bring the expertise ARC was crying out for.

But with the current pandemic having a massive impact on fundraising activities and charities worldwide seeing a drop in donations it was a hard decision to make. We are entirely reliant on donations from YOU, our supporters, and only through your generosity are we going to be able to afford to provide the vital veterinary services needed in South Goa. Financially this is a big step for us, we have been growing steadily and able to increase our impact year on year but we really need you now more than ever to make ends meet.
