About us

About us


Karma Animal Trust (KAT) is an NGO officially registered in India. We provide medical care to the animals of Rishikesh. KAT is run by volunteers and is based on donations.  Our goal is to make Rishikesh safe and friendly for both humans and animals. Our goal is to create awareness about animals’ rights as well as disease control via vaccination. 

Our main objective is to control the population of street dogs to prevent constant competition for territory as well as vaccinate them against common and deadly diseases like rabies. This small initiative supported by supports like yourself creates an impact that completely transforms the quality of life for animals and humans alike. To recognize the dogs who’ve been sterilized we make a special earcut.  

Over the years we have witnessed a positive change of attitude from locals with the decreased amount of stray dogs looking for resources on the street. This has created a more harmonious environment in the area. We often rely on locals to inform us of any animal who may be suffering as they tend to be our eyes on the street.

Over the years we have helped countless dogs, cats, mules and cows overcome various medical issues by acting as the liaison between the streets and local veterinarians. We provide medical care, vaccinations, deworming, parasite, feeding and other care to ensure the longevity of the dogs we aid. Our investment into their wellness is an investment into the community of Rishikesh.
