About Care for Cow
In spite India’s relatively smaller landmass, India has 30% of the world's cattle. Indigenous cattle play a vital role in ensuring the livelihood of the rural and small town populations of India. The local breeds of cattle are well known for their draft efficiency, heat tolerance and resistance to diseases. There are 26 distinctive breeds of cows in the gaushala such as Amrithmahal, Baragur,Dangi, Deoni, Gaoloa, Gir, Hallikaru, Hariana, Jawari, Kangayam.
Careforcow, is established NGO in Delhi (India), that looks after cows facing unbearable living conditions. It follows a two-step process in this rescue mission. First, it rescues cows which are either abandoned, abused, unable to milk or tagged to be killed. Second, it hosts a cow care center (often referred to as a gaushala in India) which houses all cows that are rescued. These cows are well taken care of in terms of health, sanitation, and nutrients intake. This project is currently, trying to expand the existing gaushala to a new land, and build a stronger network so more cows can be rescued. To achieve this, CAREFORCOW is hosting number of fundraisers as current donations are enough for the well-being of cows in one gaushala but not to expand.
