International Animal Rescue Goa was established as a charity (Registration No : 106/GOA/98) in August 1998. Their aim is to reduce the terrible suffering of animals in Goa.Since they began this vital work, International Animal Rescue Goa, has sterilized more than 30,000 dogs, 11,000 cats, and vaccinated over 60,000 dogs against rabies. Their ambulances have collected thousands of road casualties and have made a major impact on mange, which causes intense suffering and was endemic within the street dog community. IAR GOA rescue dozens of animals from wells every year, have rescued hundreds of snakes from houses and snake charmers which would otherwise have been killed or died, and do their best to educate the public on animal welfare issues. In 1998 they took legal action, along with People for Animals in Goa, and won an Indian High Court decision making it illegal to shoot stray dogs.
IAR GOA have modern facilities to house over 100 adult dogs, 50 adult cats, 50 puppies, 50 kittens and 30 cows/bulls at any one time. The centre in Assagao is one of the best equipped rescue centres in India with a team of top vets. They have both x ray and ultra sound facilities to ensure the correct diagnosis and treatment of injuries. Vets perform many advanced surgeries including orthopedics and are assisted by a team of highly trained veterinary nurses. A constant supply of animals in need of treatment or sterilization are brought in daily by a fleet of four ambulances which are manned by staff trained to catch and handle animals to reduce both suffering and fear as far as possible.
To encourage people to offer homes to animals IAR GOA provide a year’s free veterinary treatment to all animals adopted free of charge from their centre. They also treat large numbers of animals free of cost for people too poor to pay.DONATE NOW
