India's oldest and Asia's largest all-animal shelter, the Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre (SGACC) was founded in 1980 from a legacy bequeathed by the late Mrs. Ruth Cowell of New South Wales, Australia to Sanjay Gandhi.
A foundation set up in her memory, The Ruth Cowell Foundation, resolved to establish an animal care center in Delhi that would serve as a prototype for other centers around India. The hospital-cum-shelter was envisaged as a 24x7 facility that would rescue, home, treat, and rehabilitate animals; serve as a training center for vets and animal handlers; run an OPD; offer diagnostic services; provide burial facilities; and serve as a holding center for animals of cruelty cases.
While the Chairperson, Maneka Gandhi, visits regularly and is actively involved, the day-to-day management is headed by the Hospital Director while veterinary services are supervised by the Medical Director. Each separate department has an administrative head.
