Ahimsa is a grass-root level, non-government, non-profit organization based in Mumbai, India. Ahimsa empathetically works with stray animals to create a healthier environment for animal and man in the urban society.

Ahimsa has a two step approach for a humane coexistence: Animal Birth Control Program and Medical Care. Since 1995 our doctors and staff have sterilized 26,000 stray lives and provided medical services to over 100,000 small animals and birds.

What do we want to address?


The government authorities were licensed to kill stray dogs to curb population and eradicate human deaths caused due to rabies. The WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION declared this barbaric electrocution of 50,000 animals a year to be a failure for Indian demographics and sterilization was considered a more viable approach.

Moreover, stray animals on roads are prone to diseases, accidents and injuries. Most individuals neglect the condition of stray animals that are helplessly starving and suffering on the roads and by lanes of Mumbai.

Our Work

Animal Birth Control

Ahimsa is engaged in spaying/ neutering and vaccination of stray dogs in Mumbai Ahimsa also supports sterilisation of stray dogs from individuals, societies and other welfare organisations at a highly subsidised cost subject to the availability of space. Please call the organisation or more details.

Ahimsa Animal Birth Control Program

Please note:
The increasing costs of added professional staff, services, medicines and food, requires us to partly rely on support from individuals. The subsidised contribution only accounts for 20% of the cost that the orgnization bears and will never be enforced on unaffording individuals.
We hope you'll will extend your cooperation.
