Ananya Jain is an avid animal lover and a young vegan activist.
We met Ananya when she was 13 years old. She feeds nearly 150 dogs in her neighbourhood, looks after them and does not let people in society ill-treat puppies. When she observed that puppies were prematurely dying in road accidents, she made a shelter for them.
Ananya wants to become a veterinarian and has educated herself on the needs and body language of dogs. Ananya spreads awareness in her school and has helped her friends realise that street dogs are adorable and not aggressive as commonly believed.
Ananya is well versed in the Indian laws that protect street dogs.
