Anywhere between 20 and 30 million dogs roam the streets of India on a given day.
CHAL-USA supports proven programs enhancing the welfare of India’s street dogs, in its villages, towns and cities — through the eradication of rabies.
The disease claims the lives of around 20,000 people in India alone each year, more than a third of the global toll.
To that end, the money raised by CHAL will be available through grants to established animal-welfare organizations across India, which are working to eradicate rabies in their areas through the ABC-AR (Animal Birth Control-Anti-Rabies) program. This program has proved to be dramatically successful in the city of Chennai, where it was first introduced, as a means of eliminating human deaths from rabies.
CHAL is fully funded by public donations. Your tax-deductible contribution is vital to the continuation of the services and efforts of the animal-welfare community.
Please contribute generously and become a member of the ABC-AR movement.

Until he extends the circle of compassion to all living creatures, man himself will not find peace
I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.
A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘ Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.
