In this episode of A Voice for the Voiceless, Sudha Narayanan, Founder-Trustee of Charlies Animal Rescue Centre – CARE, speaks with RJ Ankit Puri.
Sudha pours two decades of experience in the field of animal welfare, both domestic and wild, into her work. CARE was established in January 2013. The inspiration behind the trust is 15-year-old Charlie, a differently-abled, 3-legged Indian-breed dog who was an established figure in the field of canine therapy since 2005. Charlie passed on in March 2017, but left behind a legacy that the CARE shelter aims to live up to through rescue and rehabilitation of animals in need.
In this interaction, Sudha talks about her childhood days when she first developed an interest in animals. She also speaks of her initial work as a trustee with CUPA – Compassion Unlimited Plus Action – which lasted for 17 years, and her stint with WRRC – Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre. She is known for her hands-on approach to the running of an animal shelter, without compromising on ethics, compassion, and commitment.
RJ Ankit and Sudha also discuss the cruelty and abuse against animals that has become common. They emphasise the need to show love and compassion towards not just dogs and cats but also towards other animals.
