The True Wonder Women Of India

Posted on Posted in #Insights

Women are known to be the most selfless of all; and what better way of celebrating Women’s day than laud some Wonder Women on this special day.

In our campaign with BonBeno, we identified women who have dedicated their lives to rescuing and fostering pets and are taking care of them selflessly. BonBeno is a chain of retail stores that stocks all things a pet needs.

We found out some great women through this campaign and researched about them. Some of them are:

Anoopa Anand – One of the most trusted animal welfare workers in Bangalore, Anoopa had grown up surrounded by animals and is currently contributing in rescuing, fostering, rehabilitating and rehoming animals in need.

Gauri Maulekhi –Gauri is an animal rights activist and a co-opted member of the Animal Welfare Board of India. She has contributed greatly in setting up the first animal shelter in Lucknow and has led multiple successful campaigns for animal rights, the most well-known being the campaign against sacrificial slaughtering of cattle.

Nevina Kamath – Nevina is an animal cruelty inspector certified by BBMP. She conducts various sensitization programs and awareness campaigns in schools and colleges besides working as an on-ground animal rescuer.

It is often easy for us to pursue our careers and lead rich and happy lives. Do you think these educated women didn’t have the option of leading a better life? Instead, they chose to take the ‘road less traveled by’ and dedicated their lives to animal welfare. May they always inspire us with their great work.
