India For Animals is a national conference organized by Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations (FIAPO) to bring together all organisations and activists working for animal rights. Being a one of its kind happening in India, this conference is the premier event of FIAPO and marks the celebration of animal rights in India.
The conference allows activists and organisations to collectively understand the progress of the animal rights movement in India and to dialogue about the significant issues pertaining to animals and how to move forward. The conference is a chance for hundreds of grassroots activists, practitioners and philanthropists from across the country to get together under a common banner and connect, build and learn from each other.
