Mission Statement

At Guru's Guardian Angels, our mission is to save and improve the lives of stray animals around the world by fostering unity, establishing shelters, and providing essential care. With so many countries facing the challenge of growing stray animal population, consisting of millions of cats and dogs, and only a fraction of them finding refuge in existing shelters, we are dedicated to making a difference.

Through the collaboration of volunteers, fundraisers, and generous donations from individuals, programs, and businesses who share our passion, we aim to support animal shelters and create a network of assistance. Our primary objective is to expand the capacity of shelters by providing necessary supplies, facilitating medical assistance through partnering with veterinarians, promoting adoption efforts, and ultimately constructing additional shelters to accommodate more strays.

Driven by the lifelong love and compassion of Priya & Chef Guru for all Earth's creatures, Guru's Guardian Angels draws inspiration from their upbringing in a small Indian village where caring for stray animals was a shared priority. We recognize the need to restore this compassionate behavior in many areas of the world and actively working towards raising awareness and educating others. By building a strong and knowledgeable team, we strive to address the stray animal problem effectively.

Join us in our mission to uplift, unite, and establish more shelters throughout the world, enabling us to provide proper medical care, vaccinations, and a safe haven for the countless stray animals in need. Together, we can make a lasting impact and bring positive change to their lives.

Who We Are

Ashni Kumar and Priya Guru

Priya reminisces the days of her childhood when the cows in their farm were treated humanely and dogs were fed and treated as a part of the village community.
