Mission Statement

Help Animals India is an all-volunteer USA non-profit 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to supporting efficient and effective animal protection organizations in India.   Help Animals India aims to educate,inspire and fundraise for animal/environmental sanctuaries and animal rescue groups in India.  Help Animals India seeks out the best of these under-funded organizations to provide financial and practical assistance where we can make the most difference.  Despite some of the best animal protection laws in the world and a renowned heritage of reverence for life, modern India is a country where millions of animals suffer severe neglect or abuse. Overpopulation, poverty, pollution, superstition, apathy and ignorance all contribute to their plight. In a country where human misery and impoverishment remain high, the welfare of destitute animals is a low priority.   Help Animals India strives not only to achieve immediate benefits for India’s animals, but to nurture an enduring culture of animal protection. We strictly monitor and put our donors’ contributions to work where they are most needed and can do the most good.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

October 2014)

Budget:
$106,000
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

VSPCA  - Our funding of flood relief in 24 villages in the Kurnool District of Andhra Pradesh made it possible for over 11,000 animals to be rescued, fed and medicated.  Our grants have paid for a new cat sanctuary, an ambulance on call 24/7 for injured and suffering animals and the salaries of two veterinarians. Last year, we purchased nearly five acres of land 40 kilometers from VSPCA. This will be the site of The VSPCA Kindness Farm – a sanctuary for horses, donkeys, buffaloes and many other animals who need room to roam. Most crucially, our dependable funding has allowed VSPCA to keep covering its daily operating expenses: food and medicine for over 1100 animals, wages for the many animal care workers and more.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Wildlife is under extreme threat due to overpopulation and help protect species.  India is becoming a throw away society for pet dogs and cats and through humane education we are supporting better levels of understanding so this does not happen.  Intensive factory farming is just beginning in India we aim to prevent its spread.  What we are doing is different as we are empowering the charities by referring donors directly to them, advertising their websites, giving guidance on animal care and at times helping with English language to add strength to.  India groups must become strong within their communities and that is what we aim for most of all.  With our overhead and expenses (only postage and wiring fees) are very little , all the rest can go to India which is making a powerful impact there since the dollar goes very far indeed and even now more so than usual. It is our greatest joy to send over these grants, Conditions and challenges in India are so tough and we can make all the difference.   As ever for the animals,
