Guardians of all Voiceless Animals and Children (GOAVA) is a non-profit organization based in the USA that was formed with two aims: We rescue street animals to provide them with medical care and shelter for a better life. We offer these animals the help they need and become their perfect guardians. We act as facilitators who look for compassionate people, who want to give back to society, and match them with these needy lives. We rely on donor funding to improve the lives of helpless and animals as well as to embrace compassion towards all beings. Our organization aims to support needy lives and to instill a sense of kindness and responsibility towards animals through holistic education for our upcoming generations.
Our primary goal is to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves in the society. Our main focus is animals, as they are society’s most defenseless. Our services are integrated to create social awareness about the importance of empathy towards all living things. We motivate children from the underprivileged families to join our noble cause towards reporting, rescuing and helping animals in distress.
Through mentoring and providing awareness regarding the well being of animals to the community and children, we can make them ambassadors of love so they can care for all beings. Given that most of these children had at one time or another faced hopelessness and despair, we have found that involving them in animal rescue is psychotherapeutic.
In our years of experience, we have noted an enormous gap between the value placed on suffering children as compared to that of suffering animals. Our aim is to bring social awareness that like humans, animals too experience pain and need someone to care for them. We are fully devoted to developing a culture of selflessness and sacrifice towards the disadvantaged in our society.
Our well trained and equipped team responds to calls on ill, wounded and abused animals. Depending on the seriousness of the animal’s condition, our team treats it on the street or carries it home. When needed they are taken to receive medical care to hospitals as well as to private veterinary clinics. The involvement of children and adolescent in the rescue operation is always supervised. Once the animal is treated, it is either released to the streets or given up for adoption, depending on the circumstances. Guardians also focus on sterilizing as many dogs possible as it is the only way to end such suffering.
Our organization depends on donor funding to offer these services to the vulnerable. We depend on well-wishers to see that the society’s most vulnerable receive food, treatment and other basic needs.
We at Guardians of all Voiceless Animals and Children realize that we can only succeed in creating awareness about animals by showing our compassion and love for the disadvantaged in the society. GOAVA participates in creating awareness to the young generation, we hope to influence them to stand up for what is right and fighting for the helpless.
We aim to achieve a healthy and a disease-free society by offering education on proper animal care and control. Like any other living thing, a neglected and malnourished animal is likely to contract diseases and spread them to people.
With the ongoing war against rabies in India, our organization is dedicated to ensuring a rabies-free world by curbing the population of stray dogs through sterilization and vaccination programs. In addition, we treat stray dogs to full recovery to avoid the spread of communicable diseases. Our goal is to eliminate cruelty towards animals while ensuring a healthy and disease-free society.
Through our mentorship programs, we see them through their development into becoming responsible individuals. Their involvement in taking care of neglected animals is one way through which we teach them basic life skills. We prevent these children from loitering in the streets by engaging them in productive and noble causes.
Like humans, some animals like dogs and cats need coping skills too. Before sending them to an adoption shelter, we train them to adapt to the new shelters.
We at Guardians of all Voiceless Animals believe that our campaign towards fair treatment, love and compassion for the less fortunate, whether people or animals, should be taken beyond borders. Our organization is currently operating in India but we aim to expand our campaign to other countries too. We seek to raise a new culture where everyone is empathetic towards all living things irrespective of the benefits they gain from them. Through our investments in children and adolescents, we believe that we will be able to win the society in our cause.
