Founded in 2005 by Indra Lahiri, Indraloka moved from its original 30 acres in Mehoopany, Pennsylvania to nearly 100 acres in Dalton, PA (conveniently located two-hours from both Philadelphia and New York, and only 15-minutes from Scranton) in the spring of 2020. Indraloka rescues and provides lifetime care for the most at-risk animals in the world – farm animals facing abuse, neglect, hoarding, and worse.

Indraloka Animal Sanctuary is creating a kinder, more compassionate world through four key strategies:
