Welcome to CUPA, Compassion Unlimited Plus Action
CUPA is a public charitable trust that works for the welfare of all animals. The organization was founded in 1991 by Crystal Rogers, an Englishwoman who made India her home. From two tiny rooms in her house, CUPA today operates from seven centres in the city of Bangalore. More than 10,000 wild and domestic animals pass through its portals, and activities range from urban stray dog control to large animal rescue and rehabilitation, from a veterinary hospital and clinic to a geriatric center and adoption of abandoned animals. It also helps in the rehabilitation and housing of wildlife in their indigenous forest zones.
CUPA is also involved with legal issues protecting the interest and welfare of animals, wild and domestic, in the High Court of Karnataka and the Supreme Court.
It has popularized compassion for both stray and pet animals through volunteer networks, an active FaceBook presence, awareness programmes in schools and colleges and working with government agencies.
