Welcome to our website
Help Suffering Lives Society (HSLS)
is a charitable trust and relies solely on donations, grants and
fundraising to operate. We have a passionate group of volunteers
who generously give up their time to rescue, rehabilitate and release
orphaned, sick and injured birds.
Our centers accept and care for all India birds and
wildlife whether they are pet, native or non-native. We assist thousands
of birds each year, many being the victims of cat attacks, road
accidents, pollution or human cruelty.
A large section of our HSLS is dedicated to birds.
At any given time, there are more than fifty pariah kites undergoing
treatment at the facility. All the birds are rescued by us or brought
to us by people who found the injured birds in various parts of
the city. A large number of pigeon, sparrow, pariah kites, owls,
vultures, etc. get treatment in our rescues center.
Another large aviary has been set up for peacocks.
The National Capital Region has got a healthy population of peacocks
in it's green belts. Peafowl are brought to our rescue centre as
a result of road accidents, electric shock, or attacks by feral
dogs or cats. May of them survive the wounds, and within a few months'
time, we release the birds back into their natural habitat.
For pariah kites, we have a soft release programme:
the birds are kept in a large aviary; once a bird is able to fly
properly, we allow it to fly out. Due to the availability of enough
food and the presence of other birds, these newly freed birds stay
near the rescue facility and return back for food for a few more
days before they fly away.
