Lakshmi has a permanent sponsor, but is still available for adoption. If you are interested in sponsoring another animal in need, please check back to the animals section.
T he suffering of cows in India is perhaps one of this country’s biggest shames, and while so many are abused within the dairy and meat industry, others are abandoned to roam the streets in desperate search of food and shelter. Lakshmi's mother and aunt were rescued and brought to our sanctuary where Lakshmi was born a couple of months later. Fortunately, Lakshmi's mother and aunt found an adoptive home while Lakshmi stayed back to give company to our rescued pony Veeru.
Currently being sponsored, Lakshmi would thrive on a farm somewhere where she would not be exploited for milk, and after having lived alongside dogs for so long, she tolerates them well too.
Lakshmi has two sponsors whose combined contributions cover Lakhsmi's maintenance:
Sita Sudarsan since April 2014
Alamelu Iyer since October 2018
Lakshmi is not available to sponsor. If you are interested in sponsoring, we have plenty of animals who need you. Please check in the animals section.

The procedure for adopting or fostering an animal from HAS varies from animal to animal and from person to person, but the following steps are always involved one way or the other.
1. Let us know of your interest in whichever way suits you the best.
2. We will arrange for you to visit your preferred animal at their home at the Sanctuary or ABC and Rescue Centre.
3. We will discuss in person with you the practicalities of adopting/fostering an animal.
4. You will ensure that all your family members affected by the adoption/fostering are in agreement, and that they will do their best to promote the interests of the animal.
5. We will do a house visit to ensure that you and the animal would be comfortable living with each other there. If necessary, we will advise on ways to adjust the living quarters to suit the animal.
6. You will pick up the animal from its present location, or, if possible, we will drop the animal at your house.
7. You will bring the animal to the ABC and Rescue Centre for yearly free health check-ups that include vaccinations.
8. Should you experience any problems at any point in the life of the animal, you should never hesitate in contacting HAS.
