Welcome to HIS-India

Help In Suffering is a registered Indian charitable trust working for the benefit of the animals of India. Help in Suffering was founded in l980, on two acres of land in south Jaipur and has grown into a large animal welfare organisation with a number of projects based in the compound. A new specialised Camel Rescue Centre has been built at Bassi, a village on the Agra road, to serve draught camels.

Jaipur is the state capital of Rajasthan, and the Help in Suffering shelter-hospital there employs about thirty-five staff and has three rescue ambulances and two mobile clinic vehicles. Six separate animal welfare projects are conducted, each headed by a vet.

Inside the peaceful, garden-like grounds of our compound, Help in Suffering provides refuge for many animals, works as a veterinary hospital treating all species, and aims to re-home as many unowned animals as possible.

We welcome visitors to our hospitals. If you are in Jaipur please visit to see our work.

Obituary: Anna the cow

Anna the Shelter cow has died after a short illness. She had been a resident at Help in Suffering since February 1999. She was about 22 years old.

Anna came to HIS following a road accident in a posh suburb of the city where she had been abandoned by her former owner because she was barren and unproductive. A mini bus had collided with her as she walked the streets causing a large flesh wound to her right shoulder and fore leg. A HIS ambulance had been called and a team from the shelter including Babulal ji, our longest serving compounder, had attended. After first aid and pain relief Anna was loaded on the ambulance and brought to the hospital where, with daily treatment she soon recovered.

Being a large and attractive cow she was named by the staff Anna and was to remain at Help in Suffering for the rest of her life.

During her time at HIS she lived quietly in the cow shed and caused very little trouble; she remained barren and unproductive throughout her life at HIS. She had the proverbial constitution of an ox and apart from her final illness never required further treatment, except occasional pedicures which she did not enjoy and vaccinations which had to be administered with stealth.

In recent years she formed a firm bond with Raja the buffalo and they lived together peacefully in the cow shed. When Raja was kidnapped from HIS by antisocial elements Anna was besides her self with worry and went off her food, a most unusual occurrence. After Raja’s release they were reunited and lived together happily until her death early in 2012.

The burial has taken place at Help in Suffering.
