Being an inherent part of India’s largest animal protection organization, the organizational mandate of People For Animals Uttarakhand has evolved to encompass capacity building, policy reform, animal welfare advocacy, public awareness as well as sheltering.

Through PFA Uttarakhand’s continued efforts of working closely with the Central Government and various State Governments as well as organizational strategy of seeking judicial intervention, it has achieved certain significant milestones in the field of animal welfare. Capacity building of law enforcement and judicial agencies (such as Police and Magistrate Sensitization Workshops) constitute a core aspect of our work towards sensitizing administrative personnel about the cause of animal welfare and further strengthening the animal protection framework in India. This has paved the way for a regime of positive laws and policies in favor of protecting animals.
