HCF is a growing Foundation that aims at setting up sustainable shelters for cattle in all of the villages in India. The task is a mean feat that requires many hands on deck to create a protected environment for the animals. Volunteers and interns play a vital role in strengthening the work towards animal welfare, and help expand to more shelters in the country that require urgent intervention and direction toward a sustainable shelter that protects the animals and supports the villages.
Join HCF to create awareness and expand HCF shelters and animal farms across the country, with your specialised contribution.

Feeding a cow is considered to be one of the most pious acts of service. You can sponsor to feed a cow for as long as you want, for any day/s of the year, and it costs only Rs. 70/day to feed a cow; accumulating to Rs 2,100 per month or Rs. 21,000 a year. On special day(s) of your loved one/s, or a day remembering a dear, departed one; you can feed a cow in the memory of all the dates that you have treasured.
It is a treasured experience to name a cow(s), take care of them and their meals. You can sponsor their food and other whereabouts that cost Rs. 21,000 per year. Another convenient way to look after the cows is to invest 3 lakh in a fixed deposit, where the interest from the FD shall be forwarded to the respective Gaushala. This is a generous process that supports one animal for its entire life, and helps in contributing toward cows’ protection in India. You can receive pictures and videos of your favorite one(s), and visit them on special occasions. We’d be happy to welcome you and assist the visits.
Who doesn’t end up with huge piles of vegetable peels, chapattis, and other wheat and flour leftovers by the end of the day? These ‘leftovers’ are mostly dumped in a nearby garbage carrier. A whole new way for people to connect with the animals is to donate the food so that the cattle may have wholesome meals. You can sponsor a Rikshaw for the Gaushala that will collect the fodder (leftovers) from door to door. It costs Rs. 21,000 to sponsor a Gaushala Rikshaw, with sunshade and steel drums, to collect the ‘gau gras’.
HCF welcomes any rural development projects where the cow is used as a training centre for the entire village. Under this concept, a community Gaushala shall be set up where the non-productive cows, calves, bulls will be housed. Proper use of cow dung and cow urine at the shelter will help empower the village to move towards organic farming and village industry through SHGs, where manufacturing and training of Panchgavya products (herbal and natural cow products) will be imparted. On one hand, such a centre will protect non-productive cattle from slaughter and on the other, it will ensure health and wealth in the village via women empowerment and reduction of the rural migration population.
