We are a small registered non-profit Indian charitable trust set up in Jaipur in 2010 working for the welfare for injured, abandoned and suffering animals in India. Founded by a group of compassionate animal lovers, Aashray is an attempt to rescue animals and rehabilitate them. Currently in its most nascent stage, we need the support of people who wish to make a difference in any way possible. Aashray along with being an animal welfare organization also aims at informing people about animal rights and sensitizing them to the needs of our voiceless friends. Currently we are engaged in increasing awareness and building infrastructure.

Aashray is a private NGO that survives on the generosity of the general public to perform bird & animal rescues, multiple times a day, 24X7, 365 days a year. Monetary Donations are ALWAYS welcome.
