Red Paws Rescue (NGO) is a registered non – profit charity aimed at the rescue and rehabilitation of stray and abandoned dogs in New Delhi, India. The organization from its humble beginning is the vision of Sadhwi Sondhi who at the young age of only seventeen decided to create awareness to the plight of stray and abandoned animals in New Delhi by starting up her very own NGO. She has always been passionate about helping animals and is an avid animal rights advocate.
Red Paws Rescue is closely associated with several animal shelters throughout the country and we assist in providing homes for the abandoned and stray animals. We believe that every single effort made by people to help animals takes the cause for the ethical treatment of animals one step further.
The aims and purposes of Red Paws Rescue include finding homes for Indian dogs and pups, placing abandoned pets into loving homes, mass sterilizations of stray animals in different zones across New Delhi., better medical care and to raise awareness to our cause.
The name Red Paws Rescue comes from the name of Sadhwi’s dog who goes by the same name, she is an healthy and playful 13 year old who loves her dog bones, naps in the sun, doing her doggie tricks and watching the rain from the porch.
Pet Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) came into existence in 1998 and started working the very same day. The purpose of the society is to make people aware about the care, management and nutrition of pet and stray animals. For PAWS, all animals on this planet are the pets of the society and hence we need to realize their importance in our everyday life and do our bit in exchange.
PAWS runs a low cost sterilization and vaccination center for pets and strays in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. Features of the shelter include indoor/ outdoor runs, cages, isolation areas and surgical facilities. The shelter provides x-ray , laboratory and intensive care facilities for animals with serious conditions.
All dogs have access to large outdoor runs to maintain healthy muscle tone. Quarantine cages segregate sick animals from the general population. Pregnant bitches and puppies are kept in separate kennels, whereas cats are housed in a separate enclosure.
All animals are provided a healthy and balanced diet .The shelter also provides adoption facility for abandoned dogs and cats. With a dedicated team of veterinarians, volunteers and staff we try to provide warmth and comfort to the sick and homeless animals.

The Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre (SGACC) is India’s oldest and Delhi’s largest all-animal shelter. It was founded in 1980 from a legacy bequeathed by the late Mrs. Ruth Cowell of New South Wales, Australia to Shri Sanjay Gandhi.
A foundation set up in her memory, The Ruth Cowell Foundation, resolved to establish an animal care centre in Delhi that would serve as a prototype for other centres around India . The proposed hospital cum shelter was envisaged as a 24×7 facility that would rescue, home , treat and rehabilitate sick and needy animals.
