About the NGO

Sometime in the 1970' s a group of school kids got together and started a kindness club for distressed stray animals under the Defence Colony flyover. The space was provided for by the then Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi' s regime. It was a small set up with just 2 rooms and a handful of animals. But in no time the shelter grew by leaps and bounds and in April 1979 it was registered as a society and Friendicoes SECA came into existence.

In the last three decades a lot of things have changed. What has not changed is the involvement of Geeta Seshamani (present Vice President) and the late Gautam Barat (ex-treasurer &ndash who passed away in October 2011) who were there from the very beginning. Geeta Seshamani says she took her inspiration from Crystal Rogers, a legend in India' s animal welfare, who influenced a whole generation of young people of her time to help animals.

Friendicoes is now a much bigger shelter under the same flyover in the same location and boasts of an Out Patient' s Department, an in-house clinic for the strays that accommodates about 150-200 animals at any point of time, two operation theaters, a Lab & X-ray unit as well as a sanctuary in Gurgaon that houses about a thousand animals. There is also round the clock ambulance services for the strays as well as an emergency night clinic for pets.
