How you can help

All donations to India Project for Animals and Nature (IPAN) are income-tax deductible  under the 80G Act and go towards the care and maintenance of the rescued, resident animals at the Hill View Farm Animal Refuge. Please let us know the details of your bank transaction and your contact details so that we can follow-up and send you a receipt and you to the supporters emailing list. One off donations are great but it is even better to have a network of regular monthly supporters as HillViewFarmFriends.
