Mumbai is a city filled with animal lovers, and we have jotted down a few places that are making a difference. Feel like doing something productive over the weekends? Check out these animal shelters that could do with a few extra hands with taking care of the furry lil bundles of joy. 

Save Our Strays

Anyone looking to adopt a pup or a kitten? Save our Strays focuses solely on adoptions, sterilisation and providing first aid to stray cats and dogs. If you think you don’t have the time and energy needed to raise a pet, but still want to contribute, you can join then “Bathe A Dog” project, and help them with adoptions and collecting funds.
