Launch of In Defense of Animals, India (IDA India)

In Defense of Animals, India was launched on 31st October 1996. Immediately the project of neutering of street dogs was taken up. A small beginning was made in March 1997 in two garages of a residential colony in a suburb of Mumbai. For three years IDA India worked in small make shift camps.


Deonar Centre started on 1st February 2000:

With the intervention of the Bombay High Court, the Municipal Corporation handed over erstwhile Dog pound at Deonar to us on 22nd December 1999. After refurbishing the place, we started the centre from 1st February 2000, to spay / neuter street animals and render treatment to ill / injured ones.


Second center in Navi Mumbai started on 26th July 2006:

Navi Mumbai did not have a neutering center for dogs for several years. Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) handed over their erstwhile Dog Pound to us to start the spay / neuter program and render treatment for street animals in Navi Mumbai. Thus started our second centre in Navi Mumbai from 26th July 2006.


Third center in CIDCO area of Raigad district on 21st December 2012

CIDCO builds cities in Maharashtra. With each new city comes the increasing stray dog population too. We were therefore given the contract by CIDCO in December 2012, to start the spay/neuter and treatment of stray dogs program for CIDCO administered areas in Raigad District


Fourth Centre at Lonavala on 8th March 2013:

We started a centre at Lonavala to help the animals in the region of Khandala and Lonavala, where we spay/neuter 50 dogs per month and render treatment to ill / injured ones.
