Founded in 2005 by British Veterinary Nurse Rachel Wright, TOLFA serves
the street and stray dogs of Pushkar & Ajmer, Rajasthan, India.
365 days of the year their rescue vehicle responds to 20 calls a day and
the hospital itself has 300 animals in treatment at any one time.
To date they have sterilised over 17,000 dogs to humanely control the
street dog population and vaccinated over 20,000 against rabies of which
India has the highest human death rate in the world.
TOLFA employ over 30 people to take care of the day to day cleaning,
feeding and medical treatments but are in need of volunteers. Foreign
volunteers are not allowed (by law) to be involved in medical treatments
of animals, but they do need people to offer extra care to their most
sick and vulnerable animals, to help with walking the 150+ dogs who
are in kennels, to socialise the numerous puppies, to give baths and
grooming.... the list is endless!
The length of your stay is entirely up to you, whether it's a short stay whilst travelling or if you'd like to come for a few months we'd love to hear from you. We do recommend you come for a minimum of 2 weeks in order to get the most from your TOLFA experience.
