THE STORY:

Imagine if you or a loved one needed an ambulance, but the only emergency vehicle available was broken down on the side of the road. That is currently the situation for one Animal Rahat ambulance that serves animals in India, and another one is limping along. I hope you might help us purchase another of these unique lifesaving vehicles so that no call goes unanswered.

Animal Rahat (“rahat” means “relief”) is a nonprofit organization that is making a difference in the lives of thousands of working animals and their owners in often drought-stricken regions of India. PETA is supporting this group and helping to expand its services.

The Animal Rahat ambulances not only serve a vital emergency treatment role but also educate the public about the needs of animals and the proper treatment of working animals. Animal Rahat has placed educational diagrams on all the ambulances. This is another way to convey—even to the illiterate—basic welfare lessons such as ensuring that both bullocks on a team are the same size so as to even the load on the animals’ shoulders and necks, avoiding the pairing of horses and bullocks for the same reason, avoiding whips, and replacing cruel nose ropes with morkees (humane face harnesses).

A total of $11,000 would put a fully equipped Animal Rahat ambulance on the road to provide emergency treatment for and help change attitudes toward India’s many working animals. Would you please help?
