PAWS Thane

Hands that help are holier than lips that pray…

Home January 4, 2011


Professionals @ Work @ PAWS!






Many years ago, local stray animals in suburbs of Mumbai were ungraciously used in harrowing conditions, left to die on roadsides, full of maggot-wounds & weak due to starvation. We started our work in 1998 with group of youngsters who use to treat animals with help of vets!

 But on 11th January 2001, a few youngsters decided that they needed to effect a change. So they created PAWS, the Plant & Animals Welfare Society that started with a vision to voice the distress of the animals.

They never looked back. The organization grew strength to strength culminating in a successful society truly devoted to their chosen mission and vision.

Local municipal corporations have stopped stray dog killings, but have done little to assist in the sterilization campaign. Sensing the need of the hour, PAWS volunteers played an excellent role by Picking up strays, putting them into the ambulance, taking them to Mumbai hospitals for sterilization and vaccination and ultimately releasing them into their respective areas.

In October 2001, PAWS received its first ambulance as a donation from Mr. Anil Kataria of Ahmednagar SPCA, only on the basis of the genuine hard work that members of the organization are putting in.

From then, no looking back, now PAWS has 2 ambulances, 9 peoples staff, more then 100 volunteers supporting PAWS in various ways now!

Activities of Society

PAWS Murbad Rescue Center: In November 2010 PAWS started its own rescue Center located in Murbad City, District Thane. As on Today, we have 16 Kennels, Separate Accident Recovery Ward, Distemper Recovery Ward, Puppy Penny, Cat Ward, Surgical Room & 2 Staff Quarters with 5 people working there & taking care around 40 animals including Cats, Pups & Kittens, Donkeys… We feed these animals twice a day…A para-vet is available 8 hours in day & Care-Takers are there 24 hrs. Surgeons visits hospital weekends. Check out website’s separate pages for this!


Ambulance Service: PAWS responds to public calls to help sick & injured stray animals. PAWS’ ambulance covers some cities like Dombivli, Thakurli, Kalyan of Thane district. Ambulance service is available between Monday to Friday with a Fuel cost. Sunday’s are off.



Sterilizations & Vaccinations: PAWS catches stray dogs & cats from different cities in Thane district and gets them sterilized at Bombay hospitals, and releases them from where they were picked-up. PAWS also vaccinates all sterilized animals, against rabies. PAWS has a representative on the ‘Animal Birth Control’ committee at Municipal Corporation. Every year around 900 strays were vaccinated against rabies.

First Aid & Camps: PAWS Trustees & volunteers personally treat all types of  injured stray animals. Some cases are referred back to the Vets on the following day.  PAWS also arranges different first aid camps for all types of animals & holds lectures which teach first aid to students.

Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation: One of the major activities of PAWS is Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation. PAWS has rescued many species that are traded illegally.  Spiny tailed lizards, Snakes, Mongoose, Monkeys, and Tortoises & Turtles. Many Birds like Parakeets, kites, Owls, Bats, Mynahs, Muniyas, Sparrows etc. are rescued & rehabilitated by team PAWS under vety. guidance.

Helping Cattle in Distress : PAWS members regularly responds to cattles in distress. Our municipal areas now Cattle-free.  PAWS also holds regular camps in slums & village areas for vaccination of Bullocks, Donkeys & Horses that are employed for labour, also holds first aid & medical check-up camps.

Adoptions & Re-homing: Innumerable homeless and abandoned animals have been re-homed through our adoption Scheme. Adoption is done only after rigorous interviews and complete verification. Adoptions done Free of cost & adoption kit also provided.

Humane Education: With help of Video Screening, Live talks & interactions, PAWS  tries to create awareness about animal welfare among the masses. PAWS also distributes free software about dissection in schools & colleges. PAWS produces pamphlets on Animal Welfare acts, which are distributed free of cost to interested citizens & volunteers time to time.  Many management students prepare their projects on PAWS or with PAWS on various topics.

Legal Cases on Cruelty to Animals: PAWS members & Animal Welfare Officers investigate cruelty cases, which includes rescue of exploited animals. PAWS has filed many Police Complaints; lodged FIRs to save animals from cruelty.

Helping Like-minded NGOs: PAWS also aims to help other like-minded NGOs for the betterment of Animals, Wildlife & Environment. PAWS feels that the animal welfare movement should be spread everywhere. So PAWS helps that cause by providing volunteers, medicines, and fodder for animals to other charities in different parts of country. PAWS experts also guides newcomers for their projects related to animals.

Disaster Management: PAWS helped over 300 sick & distressed animals during Mumbai area floods in 2005. PAWS renders such help during natural calamities within its own limits.

Research Work, Studies & Inspections: PAWS Thane successfully carried out ‘Survey on Captive Elephants of Maharashtra’ in year 2006 wherein all  sorts of Captive Elephants like Circus Elephants, Zoo Elephants, Forest Captive Elephants & Begging elephants were scientifically studied by the PAWS Team. The survey report was submitted to CUPA Bangalore for further analysis. PAWS Also inspected several Circuses, Zoos &  collaborated with other institutes  to work against cruelty to animals.

    I think if we can make an organization like yours in each city then India will be seen with great respect by the rest of the world. Please do remember me if you ever plan to start something like this in New Delhi as well.

    Apart from this, I run a tech support company which serves US market, but in that we also try to help rescues (like yours) by donating them a part of our earnings. So do visit our website and get back to us if you would like to become our registered rescue.

    We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.

    Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals.

  19. I have been following PAWS activities for a long time now and i can assure one and all that PAWS has been doing a wonderful job… Other than the Conservation and Treatment of Injured and Sick Animals it is also doing tremendously well with the Awareness among people.. :).. I also would personally like to thank PAWS founder NILESH BHANAGE for all his hard work and support extended towards various organizations and people in spreading Animal awareness and Conservation message .. :)

  20. Nilesh, you have been an inspiration to all those, who assume that they would go tired on the way to their journey…….but, it is the commitment, dedication and persistence that keeps the people walk…..

  21. Naresh Naik Says:

    Keep up the good work…….Best luck for you

  22. Naresh Naik Says:

    Hi Nilesh,
    I like your work and I like to join you. Please tell me the way.


    NILESH (dada) he is a great person …..

    I have known Nilesh for several years now and have been impressed with his selfless devotion for animals. His organisation PAWS has done sterling work and deserves all the support we can garner. Good luck to him and his team for the future. I wish there are many more groups like him in India.

    I love what PAWS is doing and I try to do my part and my best to see that these beautiful creatures are not mistreated in any goddamn way. I hope many people would start thinking like PAWS.

  34. sourabh edwankar Says:

    PAWS not only does grass root work like sterilisation, vaccinations, rescue, legal but go beyond that. They encourage people in various areas to stand up & become self sufficient. PAWS understands the strength of individuals & their power as a team. They network with other NGOs & bring togather independant animal lovers to bring in Unity to the cause. PAWS is one organisation that thrives on diversity of thought amongst its people. Arguments happen & they bring in new ideas instead of differences. The motto of PAWS is to develop leaders who will spawn out & multiply. Kudos to the farsighted vision of the PAWS management !

  35. debalina chanda Says:

    I really appreciate and honor the kind of work that is done at P.A.W.S. The work is done with utmost honesty and dedication and having done an internship there I got the practical experience of working for the benefit of all flora and fauna with total selflessness… All of us should also take out some time out of our busy schedules to help those who can not help themselves.

  55. Varun A. Damle Says:

    Paws and its team lead by Nilesh Bhanage are like God sent angels. The amount of work that they actually do is really extremely commendable. Its easy to get into a regular corporate shock absorbed job with a fat pay cheque to motivate, but working for animals day in and day out, risking their lives, working on calls at odd hours, only shows the 100% dedication by Nilesh and his team. Hats off to them.

  56. shubham darveshi Says:

    Great organisation from an great person who loves animals really salute to him for his kind work for the helpless animals! thanks a lot PAWS! keep it up

  57. Lynn Pereira Says:

    PAWS has been doing exceptionally good work. They are always happy to help and very cooperative. No ngo is perfect, but they strive to do their best even in limited resources. Do help them in whatever little you can, so far the experience with them is wonderful. No extra frills and fancies , just good and commendable work.. Do have faith in them, they won’t disappoint you..

    I know PAWS since last 3-4 hrs, as working abroad so not able to join this valuable task.

    Love For Animals,

    PAWS treat all animals equally. PAWS accept animals even when they aren’t perfectly “adoptable” and provide them with the loving home they deserve. The motto of PAWS is “Life for Everyone” because we recognize that every animal is equally valuable. PAWS does their best to find every animal a home or keep them forever at one of our country animal sanctuaries.

    Best of luck for all future Assignment….

  76. Bhanu kumar Says:

    Great work we need such organiszation in Bangalore too here……

  77. Yogesh more Says:

    Thats a very handful of information provided by PAWS, regarding its work and hospitality for animal walfare and cause. But, as an admirer of the very organisation, i assure you that theres a lott PAWS, has to offer and shall offer in the coming future. PAWS has done remarkable contribution in the protection of animals from the cruelty of heartless people and has launched big events, and causes to ensure the health of animals throught the city and beyond. As an animal lover i have olwaz acknowledged PAWS as one of the best to exist, to nurture the poor, and innocent babies of nature, and under the explicit leadership of Dr. Nilesh Bhanage, PAWS will grow to its highest peak of perfection and bless the life of all animals and tress, and become their voice to humanity. My best wishes for PAWS for the coming decades of its contribution to happen and may PAWS flourish to its glory and continue all its good work in the same way as it does now and be an angel for all those who is helpless, keeping aside all differences. God bless PAWS. God bless humanity.

  78. harshal belvate Says:

    as per my experience, PAWS is a very helpful, prompt, kind and attendive organization who is more concerned about caring animals and plants rather than trying to build revenue for organization’s benefits.
    Thanks a lot to PAWS for being helpful hand for people.

    All the work is properly documented and sent in annual reports as well, which sometimes is not seen from bigger NGOs.
    Keep up the great work, animals and animal lovers are counting on you.

    I have never come across an organization active to this extent on the issue of animal welfare.. PAWS is a boon to the animal kingdom, this is service of the highest order. completely unconditional for speechless animals who know cannot go to any court of law for justice. From the small creatures like chicks to cows, donkeys all creation seek refuge in this holy divine abode – paws. I can’t express enough with these few words..

  139. J.P.Maithani Says:

    I know Nilesh since last 4 years- and every day we receive the updated information about the rescue, rehabilitation of Animals and wildlife as well- we inspired by them and set up a small group of few volunteers in -Uttarakhand-Named- People for Animals and Wildlife trust Society ( PFAWTS). We know that working in the Metropolitan City Like Thane and Mumbai is very difficult and generally the common population is not bothered about these issue related to – Animals and wild life rescue and rehabilitation and in this scenario- the PAWS is doing great job for unheard Animals.
    We must congratulate them for this great job and passion.

  140. I am delighted that PAWS is doing so much to help animals. Having known them from the day they started, it has been inspiring to see them grow. Be it an animal rescue or a problem from a housing society discriminating against pets or their guardians, PAWS is there, Keep up the good work.

  141. Nilanshu Samvatsar Says:

    PAWS has been doing a great work since many years. There are many persons and organisations doing work for betterment of humans, but very few persons and organisations work for the animals. Animals also have the rights like we humans. I salute PAWS and its volunteers for their work.

  142. Giny Woo Says:

    Thank you, Nilesh and the PAWS team. You guys are the true angels for the animals and the humanity. There are so much suffering of animals everywhere and India is no exception. But I am so glad and thankful that PAWS team is there to help at least some of these animals who are badly in need of care. I hope the compassionate hearts of the world will support PAWS team so that they can continue their important work of saving the precious lives of these poor animals. God bless you all!

  223. Rinky Says:

    Great job PAWS! Keep up the good work!

  224. I don’t say that every citizen should become an animal lover. I don’t say that each one should have pets at home. Respect. That is the least one can do for the voiceless animals and also for the people who are working day and night to make a difference. Open your eyes and raise your voice whenever you see something that pinches you and makes you look away. If it hurts you somewhere, imagine the plight of the animals going through the torture. Become aware of the laws and stand up for the rights of these souls. Become a better human.

  225. Tanur S Says:

    A team so dedicated to such a noble cause. You are a testament to the pessimism that exists regarding making a change for animals in India. Good work, good intentions. March on, for the path is long. wishing you courage and hope to offer help wherever possible….

  226. Dr. Jay Shinde Says:

    It has been a pleasure to watch PAWS grow, step by step. I have been following PAWS’ activities, online and offline, since 2003 and have seen the group come a long way. It is a true response to the growing need of animal care. A forced organisation fails to transcend the message of love and compassion whereas an organisation growing out and flowing like a pure river radiates positive vibes and in the process helps many minds and soul. Thank you PAWS for being such an organisation. The work done on rescue of sick and abandoned animals and the sustained awareness programmes have direct and indirect impact on the lives of hundreds of animals. all the very best to PAWS team. May you grow more and help more. Dr Naveen Pandey. 18th July 2012.

    i heard about paws so many times in news, the mission you all are open for all living creature (sirf insan ko chodke ) is really grate , i wish i will also join you all .

  235. Pria Says:

    Your care and compassion to innocent helpless animals is very evident in your work. Mass educating the people is very crucial in India and it should begin in all schools as a subject to study on social care of animals and campaigning against cruelty of any form. Imagine our World environment without animals, birds, nature or trees, all because we didn’t look after our nature and other species besides ourselves. Our World would look so sad, lonely and miserable having only human species left in it. The work you do of rescue and care contributes to sustaining our environment, helping it to maintain its rich diversity our Creator God provided to us from the beginning of time. We must continue to celebrate its richness, variety and abundance by looking after other creatures we share our world with. After all they have as much right as we have to live and be treated humanely. Thank you Nilesh, Goodicia and your teams for your tireless efforts and very rewarding work you do. Pria, United Kingdom

    All the best to you guys! Hope to see you expanding field work to Mumbai city side as well – esp. for legal cases involving cruelty to street animals and harassment faced by people who are compassionate towards animals. As a suggestion, why don’t you put up a separate section on the site where people can understand these matters and download templates for legal notices, letters, etc that they’d have to write, sicne you’ve already got them ready? And maybe provide the contact details for people who might help with legal advice on these things? Would really help a lot of people I know! As always, you ll always have helping hands here, cheers!

    I still remember the first time I helped a stray dog, nothing much just gave him some thing to eat and further I felt good about him, I was at peace. I thought is there anyone else who does it all, Who help our animals, i was able to feed just one what about all of them? then I saw PAWS, Nilesh and Team are one of the greatest people I know, It takes a lot of courage to do what they do as a daily routine work. Their hardwork and love towards animals is like sacred blessings to us. I wish I could come there and give them my helping hand in their noble cause.

    You guys do an amazing job in one of the most difficult places to do it. I applaud your dedication and endless efforts to help any and every animal in trouble. As an animal rescuer in Thailand – where things are also pretty dire, coming from me, with my understanding of maggot infestations, starvation cases, machete attacks and poisonings, my regard for you holds a lot of weight. I sincerely appreciate all you go through to do what you do, as well as what you do, your sacrifices and pain, the feeling of never really making a difference, because there is so much misery to fight, the disappointment, frustration, anger, hopelessness, but unceasing dedication anyway. Much love to you all, you are angels.
