Welcome to STRAW (Stray Relief and Animal Welfare) India, whose motto is Animal Welfare through Education.
STRAW India is a registered non-profit organization that works for the welfare of animals through the medium of humane and animal welfare education. Our efforts enable us to significantly influence school students to develop empathy towards people, compassion towards animals and care for the natural world so that they can make a difference and bring about a positive change.
Unlike other animal welfare organizations that run animal shelters and veterinary hospitals, we are the only full-service provider of humane education in New Delhi, India. Though we are based in New Delhi, our long-term project - "Compassionate Classrooms", allows us take humane education into classrooms all over India through school textbooks. Here, we work along with educational boards like Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and state educational boards.
On a day-to-day basis, we conduct humane education workshops in schools and make presentations in colleges. Our Animal Helpline offers counseling to pet owners and helps coordinate rescue operations so as to bring help to distressed animals in the fastest possible time. We offer services at no cost to Government schools and non-profit agencies.
