Tree of Life for Animals (TOLFA)

Founded in 2005 by British Veterinary Nurse Rachel Wright, TOLFA serves the street and stray dogs of Pushkar & Ajmer, Rajasthan, India. 

365 days of the year their rescue vehicle responds to 20 calls a day and the hospital itself has 300 animals in treatment at any one time.

To date they have sterilised over 17,000 dogs to humanely control the street dog population and vaccinated over 20,000 against rabies of which India has the highest human death rate in the world.

TOLFA employ over 30 people to take care of the day to day cleaning, feeding and medical treatments but are in need of volunteers. Foreign volunteers are not allowed (by law) to be involved in medical treatments of animals, but they do need people to offer extra care to their most sick and vulnerable animals, to help with walking the 150+ dogs who are in kennels, to socialise the numerous puppies, to give baths and grooming.... the list is endless!

The length of your stay is entirely up to you, however we recommend a minimum of 2 weeks to ensure you have a fulfilling experience at TOLFA.
