Recently, Animal Angels Foundation was featured in a short documentary directed by Pooja Iyengar and commissioned by the Public Service Broadcasting Trust (PSBT). We won the award for the best documentary film at the SCRIPT international short film festival 2014, Kerala. Check out the trailer!

Animal Angels Foundation is the first organization in India working in the field of animal-assisted therapy.

Through animal-assisted therapy, our specially trained therapy pets assist us in helping children and adults learn or improve various skills and in speeding up the recovery process. We practice animal-assisted therapy in the areas of developmental disorders, psychiatric disorders, physical disabilities, physical illnesses and behavioural/emotional problems.

 

We even work with kindergartens and schools where our therapy pets assist in educating children on how to interact with animals.

We also have a team of volunteers who along with their therapy dogs and cats do animal-assisted visits to places like orphanages and old age homes.

Introducing a complete couse in Animal-Assisted Therapy

Animal Angels Foundation is now offering an intensive course in animal-assisted therapy. This 3 month course will enable you to start a rewarding new career in animal-assisted therapy and includes theory and practical classes. Please email us at AnimalAngelsIndia@gmail.com with your details.

We were shortlisted by Marico Innovation Foundation as one of the top twenty-five innovations in India for the Innovation for India Awards 2007-2008. Rohini and Radhika were also nominated as MTV Youth Icons of the year 2008 for their work at Animal Angels Foundation. We were nominated for the TATA NEN Startups Awards 2008. Our organization was ranked 241 from 600 different startup companies in India!

We were chosen for the Paragon 100 Fellowship (2009-2010) organised by The Foundation for Youth Social Entrepreneurship (FYSE). Rohini and Radhika were part of 100 young outstanding social change makers and entrepreneurs chosen from the Asia Pacific region.

 

Animal Angels Foundation is looking out for animal lovers who have done their M.A. in clinical or counseling psychology and would like to join our team of angels in Mumbai. Please email us at AnimalAngelsIndia@gmail.com with your details.

 

Our therapy pets assist us in helping people cope with life's day-to-day challenges such as loss, stress, loneliness and illness, in learning new skills and in speeding up their recovery process.
