In collaboration with Worldwide Veterinary Service International Training Center (www.wvsitc.org), IPAN is involved in veterinary skills development program and especially in humane animal handling training program.
We have also arranged talks about animal health and welfare in schools and Rotary clubs as well as welcomed students from various schools to the Hill View Farm Animal Refuge for a fun day with the resident shelter animals. We are constantly looking for volunteers who could be doing this work more regularly.
Education and empowerment of police regarding animal welfare laws and their implementation in India is important to ensure that animal cruelty cases are punished in time and adequately and that the police knows their duties in protecting animal welfare. An example of education of the police was the workshop held in Madurai in April 2013 by Animal Rahat and IPAN.
