“Be kind to all kind”
St. John’s Animal Welfare Club

St. John’s campus has a lot of animals (cats, dogs, birds, monkeys, etc.). We need to co-exist and be compassionate towards them. There are many students who love animals; and are enthusiastic to make the campus animal-friendly. Their vision is for a compassionate campus, where animals and humans can live in harmony.

We want to encourage and provide opportunities for our animal-loving students to help the animals on campus. Our club encourages volunteers from all batches and courses. The experience gained by students in the club will equip them carry their knowledge and skills forward to build a kinder world for all living beings.
