In the Vedic period as much as human rights as had on this earth, animals and such other creatures such as river forest etc. also had the same equal rights on this earth.
The cows are worshipped like our mother. But unfortunately land of earth that belonged to these forest, rivers animals is now occupied with buildings from over the material development. The submissive cows are injected with hormones, making them produce more milk than they should. And when their milk eventually stopped, they left those cows on the streets. Sadly, many cows have also died and some of the cows taken illegally to slaughterhouses in nearby cities.
We rescued the street cows and provided them with a meaningful life.
