Care for Cows maintains abandoned cows, bulls, retired oxen and orphaned calves. We are volunteers who offer our talents and resources to tend to the neglected cows living in Krishna’s holy land. We provide medical attention, nutritious food, clean water and lifetime accommodation. At present, we host a herd of about twohundredfifty at Kiki Nagla and we feed abandoned cows on the streets on a daily basis, but many more innocent cows urgently require help shelter. Here’s how you can help.

Sponsor the Resident of Your Choice
It costs US $ 35 - Rs. 2000 per month / US $ 420 - Rs. 24000 per year to maintain a cow. Choose a resident and send payments either monthly, quarterly and yearly.
Life Adoption Program (LAP)
It costs US $ 420 - Rs. 24,000 to maintain a cow for one year. The average lifespan of a cow is twenty years, thus the cost to maintain a cow for life is US $ 8400 – Rs. 4.8 lakhs. However, when US $ 3333 – Rs. 2 lakhs* is placed in a fixed deposit, it generates enough interest to maintain a cow. And when the cow passes on, the funds remain to maintain another one. Be a LAP member by donating US $ 3333 - Rs.2 lakhs * and offer perpetual go-seva.
* 2 lakhs is required for cows of 3 years and older.
2.5 lakhs is required for cows younger than 3 years.

Feed a feast to twenty cows = US $ 40 - Rs. 2600
Feed our whole herd a feast US $ 100 – Rs. 6500
The herd’s regular diet is hay, barley porridge, wheat bran, chickpea husks and fresh grass. For the feast we add jaggery and fruit (bananas/guavas/carrots/apples according to season).
