Bulls are among the most abused and exploited animals in all the world, but especially in India in the sugar cane industry. Bulls are asked to pull extremely heavy loads and are beaten into submission to work long grueling hours.

Animal Rahat began as a sanctuary for overworked bulls in rural India. Started with PETA funds, the sanctuary has not only improved the lives of bulls, but of all animals and even the people of the region. At Animal Rahat, besides the bulls, there are horses, donkeys, and other species. The lesson learned for people is that there are more humane ways to treat animals. 

Poorvah Joshipura, PETA Sr.VP of International Affairs talks to Emil Guillermo about Animal Rahat, how it started, and how it has continued to thrive despite Covid. 

Animal Rahat also gives many of the bulls a chance to be bulls for the very first time.
