Fact Sheet

About Indra Lahiri:

Indraloka Founder Indra Lahiri has rescued thousands of animals from dire circumstances around the world. She writes and tells their stories, and lives amongst them between her travels. In 2014 she spearheaded the creation of the Global Coalition of Farm Sanctuaries (GCFS). She has also taught, mentored, coached and keynote addressed tens of thousands of people. Her award-winning blog, which chronicles sacred moments with rescued animals, is followed by over 20,000 readers on every continent.

Fully Accredited:

Indraloka’s Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) accreditation means it meets the comprehensive and rigorous definition of a true sanctuary and provides humane and responsible care for the animals and meets the rigorous standards for operations, administration, and veterinary care established by GFAS. The federation is the only globally recognized organization that provides a method for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries, rescues and rehabilitation centers.

Achieving accreditation from the Animal Sanctuary Association (ASA) means Indraloka does not breed, buy, sell or trade animals commercially. Facilities are ASA-accredited by members of their own peer group. Six of the ASA’s seven board of directors are sanctuary directors themselves.

Both accreditations provide a clear and trusted means for the public, donors and government agencies to recognize Indraloka as an exceptional animal sanctuary.

GuideStar has also recognized Indraloka with its highest level, the Platinum Seal of Transparency.

Leadership:

Six passionate and dedicated board members govern Indraloka. A staff of eleven full-time people runs day-to-day operations. From a rotating group of 100 volunteers, approximately 10 to 20 people give their time on a regular basis.

Funding:

Indraloka receives all of its funding from generous donations ranging from $1 to hundreds of thousands of dollars from a single donor, to cause-marketing programs with various businesses.
