ACGS believes that animals have a right to a non-speciesist, cruelty-free life. They need to be recognised as sentient beings, no different from humans, and must be included in the global social justice movement along with all the other liberation movements.
ACGS’s mission is to create a gentle, nurturing, loving and compassionate sanctuary for old, sick, abandoned and lonely animals. We believe every animal that comes through our gates is special and is worthy of quality care, good nutrition, medical attention and tons of affection. Our aim is to create a happy forever home for each permanent resident till the end of their lives whether at the sancutary or through our adoption programme.
