“JSP Foundation has taken a pioneering step in bolstering its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives by incorporating Animal and Husbandry care into its Action Plan. Since its inception, JSP Foundation has been dedicated to uplift the economic conditions of rural farming families while also fostering awareness and care for their domestic livestock resources. This new endeavour aims to support the livelihoods of argo-based rural farmers who heavily depend on livestock, such as cattle, buffalo, goat, sheep, and poultry. This initiative will also result in production of quality animals through latest technology of arificial insemination and reduce the load of stray animals on the roads,” said Naveen.
The range of services provided by ‘Jindal Vet Seva’ includes routine health examinations, treatments, administration of necessary medications, artificial insemination, vaccination and control of stray animals through necessary animal population control measures within the framework of government regulations.
This service will operate in peripheral villages and will also respond promptly to emergency calls, ensuring that distressed animals receive immediate attention. Stray animals and pets will also benefit from this initiative.

We believe that every animal deserves timely and quality medical care, regardless of their circumstances.
