World For All has been actively promoting adoption program for the past few years. The adoption drive will further help create awareness on pets besides inform, educate and interact with potential petparents who are keen to adopt Indian dogs as pets..
Taronish Bulsara, Co founder & President, World For All Animal Care And Adoptions says, “ Adoption of rescued animals is the way forward to building a society where humans and animals co-exist respectfully. If we each adopt in 1 community animals than the roads will be free from road kills. Studies also show that a child that grows up with pets develops a sense of responsibility and confidence thus having a positive impact on their personality. Growing up with pets also means that you will have stronger immunity when compared to a non-pet parent. Dogs and cats are also known to be therapeutic in the sense that having them around controls blood pressure, lowers the risk of depression and helps a person to cope up with the hectic and pressurizing lifestyle that we all are living in.
Our mission is for people to be more aware about the benefits of adoption and also educate them on the right practices that will nature their relationship with their pets. All the puppies and cats adopted from us have had such a positive impact on their new family and we only see the bound get closer. Come and meet out team and get to know more about these puppy faces. We would like to appreciate Pedigree and Metro from teaming up to support such a big cause. Such brands are examples
Congratulating the drive, Mr. Nitin Kulkarni, Director- Corporate Affairs Mars India says “Pedigree is delighted to partner with World for all to adopt in their efforts to provide forever families to the homeless dogs. World For All has extended help to over 150 and counting sick and injured animals and birds till date. We at Mars believe that “Pets make the world better” and our goal is to make the “World better for Pets”. The pet adoption at Mumbai is one such significant step in our efforts to encourage people to adopt Indian dogs and provide them loving homes. It is a perfect demonstration of putting our Principles into Action, and we are committed to support World For All and such organizations to help drive adoption. We are pleased in looking forward to such associations in future as well.”
“Adopting and looking after a pet is a huge commitment. We are delighted to be associated with ‘World For All and Pedigree in their efforts to provide a loving and caring home to many homeless stray animals, and educating adopters to be more responsible. There are several roadside stray animals living in appalling conditions subject to starvation and dehydration. Only a handful of them get saved by the animal rescuers while the rest are largely ignored. As an organization, we believe in an inclusive society, and encourage more and more pet lovers to join this movement and be a part of this adoption drive.”- Spokesperson , METRO Cash & Carry.
