About Us

Guardians of the Voiceless (GOV) is a non-profit organization in USA that was formed with an aim to provide education opportunities and better health to the less privileged children. It is also involved in rescuing street animals to provide them with shelter and better life. We offer these lives the help they need and become their perfect guardians. We act as facilitators who look for compassionate people who want to gave back to the society and match them with these needy lives. We do this through our appeal. We rely on donor funding and volunteer human resources to improve the lives of helpless children and animals.

For the legal framework, Guardians of the Voiceless (GOV) is structurally organized as two different organizations: Guardians of the Voiceless for Children and Guardians for Animals. Even through structurally dissimilar, the two divisions share the same objectives and goals. Our organization aim’s to promote life and instill a sense of kindness and responsibility towards animals through holistic education to our upcoming generations.

Our objectives

Our primary goal is to talk for those who cannot talk for themselves in the society. Our main foci are the children and animals as they are the society’s most defenseless. Our services are integrated to create social awareness about the importance of empathy to all living things. We rescue children from the pains of poverty and influence them to join our noble cause towards rescuing and helping animals in distress.

Through mentoring and providing the necessities to the disadvantaged children, we can make them the ambassadors of love so they can care for other children and animals. Given that most of these children had at one time or another faced hopelessness and despair, we have found the act of involving them in animal care psychotherapeutic.

Our investment in children as the ambassadors for those who care for animals, aims to change the negative societal attitude towards suffering animals. In our years of experience, we have noted an enormous gap between the amount of value placed on suffering children when compared to that of suffering animals. Our aim is to bring social awareness that like humans, animals too experience pain and need someone to care for them. We are fully devoted to developing a culture of selflessness and sacrifice towards the disadvantaged in our society.

How we do it?

Our well trained and equipped team of volunteers respond to calls on ill, wounded and abused animals. Depending on the seriousness of the animal condition, our team treats it on the street or carries it home for more care. The involvement of children and adolescent volunteers in the rescue operation is always supervised to avoid any unnecessary accidents. Once the animal is treated, it is either released to the streets or given up for adoption, depending on the circumstances.

Our organization depends on donor funding and volunteers to offer these services to the vulnerable. We depend on well-wishers to see that the societies most vulnerable receive food, treatment and other basic needs. Apart from local volunteers, we welcome help from abroad from countries such as the United States, France, England and Australia.

We at Guardians of the Voiceless (GOV) realize that we can only succeed in creating awareness about animals by showing our compassion and love for the disadvantaged in the society. The Guardians for the Voiceless (GOV) participates in helping the disadvantaged children by providing them with education and other essential needs. By helping the young generation, we hope to influence them to stand up for the right and fighting for the helpless.

Our dedication to a healthy society

We make it our duty to ensure a healthy and a disease free society by offering education on proper animal care and control. Like any other living thing, a neglected and malnourished animal is likely to contract diseases and spread them to people.

For many years, the social neglect and cruelty towards sick animals has led to merciless acts, for instance, it has been a habit for people in shanty areas to tie sickly dogs in a sack and club them to death or throw them in a river. Guardians of the Voiceless (GOV) aims to end such brutal acts against street animals and offer a lasting solution towards their control.

With the ongoing war against rabies in India, our organization is dedicated to ensuring a rabies free world by curbing the population of stray dogs through sterilization and vaccination programs. In addition, we treat stray dogs to full recovery to avoid the spread of communicable diseases. Our goal is to eliminate cruelty towards animals while ensuring a healthy and disease free society.

Coping skills for the disadvantaged

Apart from offering formal education to the helpless children, we equip them with survival skills. Through our mentorship programs, we see them through their development into becoming responsible individuals. Their involvement in taking care of neglected animals is one way through which we teach them basic life skills. We prevent these children from loitering in the streets by engaging them in productive and noble causes.

Like humans, some animals like dogs and cats need coping skills too. Before sending them to an adoption shelter, we train them to adapt to the new shelters.

Future prospects

We at Guardians of the Voiceless (GOV) believe that our campaign towards fair treatment, love and compassion for the less fortunate, weather people or animals, should be taken beyond borders. Our organization is currently operating in India but we aim to expand our campaign to other countries as soon as possible. We seek to raise a new culture where everyone is empathic towards all living things irrespective of the benefits they gain from them. Through our investments in children and adolescents, we believe that we will be able to win the society in our course.
