We at People for Animals, Bangalore, take care of wild animals in and around Bangalore. PfA has a specialized Wildlife Hospital with Veterinarian Doctors and Wildlife rehabilitators, nursing staff and Animal Welfare officers. Since 2001, over 23,128 wild animals (190 different species) have been rescued in and around Bangalore and treated at our wildlife hospital. We also have a 'Knowledge Center' where training and awareness programs have been conducted for over 4000 members of the public, including students.
All these can be ongoing initiatives as per mutual convenience. Once you share your views on these, we can look at sending you formal proposal, if that is a requirement of your organization.You could also connect us to your HR and CSR departments so that we could take it further with them.Refer Animal Welfare board directive.
Over the years PfA has initiated, launched and organized events to amplify the effects of urbanization on our environment. Events form an integral part of PfA as it enables us to create awareness on the situation of ecological problems that beset our country such as shrinking habitat, animal sacrifices, cruelty to animals, extinction of wild species of flora and fauna.We have had various corporate and institutions like Accenture, EMC, Oracle, PMC, Sierra, Toyota, OWC, Light of the Life foundation and others who have joined hands with PfA.
The benefits of CSR extend far beyond a brand halo. When companies support social or environmental issues, consumer affinity overwhelmingly upsurges:
- 96% of global citizens will have a more positive image of that company.
- 94% will be more likely to trust that company
- 93% will be more loyal to the company (i.e., continue buying products or services)
- CSR also remains a powerful differentiator at the register, with nearly all consumers indicating a strong inclination to shop for products and services that demonstrate social and/or environmental benefits.
A date with the wild’is a corporate day out at PFA’s wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre. The visits typically revolve around workshops and interaction with animals. Each visit lasts 4-6 hours and would be able to accommodate upto 80 participants at a time. Such visits can be for those employees who are interested in this kind of awareness and are passionate towards the wild. We look forward to a donation of Rs.500 per person for such workshops.
Companies are expected to be an active participant – if not a driving force – in solving the most pressing social and environmental issues.
