A journey towards animal welfare

A s an animal lover, interning at Humane Animal Society, an animal welfare NGO, was an experience like no other. The organization is a non-governmental organization dedicated to the welfare of animals in our society. One of my primary tasks was to go to the police station and follow up on cases of animal cruelty. I was also responsible for accompanying complainants to submit their complaints and follow up on the progress of their cases. This gave me first-hand experience in dealing with the legal system and the procedures involved in reporting cases of animal abuse.

I also had the opportunity to participate in fieldwork by going out to investigate animal cruelty complaints received by the organization. This was an eye-opening experience, and I was able to see first-hand the challenges that animals face in our society. It gave me a sense of responsibility to ensure their safety and well-being and I learnt how to handle these situations in a professional manner and how to deal with the legalities involved in prosecuting offenders. Additionally, I attended awareness meetings held for the police to increase their knowledge of animal laws. These meetings were aimed at increasing awareness about animal laws and the importance of animal welfare.
