Shrimad Rajchandra Jivamaitridham was established with a vision to foster love for animals and to bridge the gap between humans and animals. The Jivamaitridham aims to become a model centre of ahimsa, where animals are treated as friends and where their well-being and security is of paramount importance.
Shrimad Rajchandra Jivamaitridham is an animal abode in Dharampur, providing animals a comfortable living space and a holistic environment in which they can lead a safe, healthy and happy life. We provide good quality natural fodder to address their nutritional requirements. We also encourage human bonding with the animals to promote a feeling of mutual love and friendship.
We use ahimsak(non-violent) milking methods at the Jivamaitridham. Our cows are milked only after the calf has been properly fed; thereby only the surplus milk is used for consumption. We also use this milk to prepare ghee in the traditional way, first converting milk to curds and then ghee, so that there are no harmful trans-fats. It is 100% pure cow ghee with no adulteration of any kind or without any use of fertilisers or pesticides used in cow fodder. The milk is certified as having 'Zero Transfats’.
Animals at the Shrimad Rajchandra Jivamaitridham have been adopted by families and are lovingly given a name.
A well-equipped animal shelter providing them a comfortable environment
Open areas for animals to wander freely and graze under the open skies
Farm for growing fodder to take care of their food requirements
It was a medical emergency when the foetus of a pregnant cow died in the womb of its mother. The cow’s body was swollen and she was in excruciating pain. The cow would have died if the foetus was not removed in time. The Shrimad Rajchandra Jivamaitridham’s veterinary team was called in and they successfully performed a caesarean section surgery, giving the cow a new lease of life.
Ramu Baraf, a resident of Pindval, a small hamlet in Dharampur taluka of South Gujarat, received cattle for farming as a part of the Shrimad Rajchandra Cattle Rehabilitation Programme. "The cattle provided by Shrimad Rajchandra Jivamaitridham has benefitted me immensely. We had no cattle of our own for farming and used to spend Rs. 250 – 300 (per day) for hiring labour to plough the field. This was not an economically viable model. The gift of cattle has brought about a drastic change in our fortunes as we have benefitted from higher productivity at significantly lower costs. Tthe volunteers from Shrimad Rajchandra Mobile Veterinary visit us periodically to provide free medical check-up and treatment of our cattle, which further helps us to maintain cattle in good health and reduces expenditure on their medical treatment."
A mega free medical camp was held at the Shrimad Rajchandra Jivamaitridham, Dharampur on the auspicious day of Ram Navami, Wednesday, 5th April 2017.
India is primarily an agricultural economy and so cattle are considered sacred. However the care of these innocent creatures is a difficult task considering that medical facilities are rare in far off rural areas and most owners are poor farmers who are unable to pay for medical care thus leaving these creatures without any hope for a better life. Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care in association with Shri Adi Jin Yuvak Group Walkeshwar, Mumbai conducted this event to aid them in their difficulty.
