Officials are predicting record-high sugar production this season, making Animal Rahat’s outreach to bring relief to the animals forced to toil under heavy carts more urgent than ever.
With the help of trained volunteers, the group held informative meetings at sugar factories throughout Maharashtra for 94 participants in one month. It’s this type of outreach that leads to the rescue and retirement of many more bullocks, like Kishan and Jay. The pair was being forced to haul heavy carts while suffering from horrid hoof-and-mouth disease. Today, they are two healthy elders enjoying their senior years, demonstrating the value of every conversation the teams have with owners.
