Tree of Life for Animal (TOLFA)
TOLFA Animal Hospital is a small but passionate charity founded in 2005 in Northern Rajasthan, India.
24/7 their rescue vehicle is on call to collect sick and injured street animals.
They run a busy Animal Birth Control (ABC) project to humanely lower the street dog population and every dog is vaccinated against rabies.
365 days of the year they have a FREE clinic so impoverished farmers can get medical care for their animals and as part of their education project they go into schools and talk to children about animal and human welfare.
