Animal Shelter Edhi Homes were originally meant to provide services to the distressed and ailing destitutes. Soon, however, animals that were cruelly treated by their owners and had become lame, crippled or badly wounded, started ending up in Edhi Centers. These also include missing animals and unwanted pets which have no other place to go except Edhi shelters. In view of the increasing number of such animals, Edhi Foundation established a separate treatment unit which has now grown up into a small zoo. Veterinary doctors look after these animals along with other volunteer staff at super highway, Karachi. These animals include peacocks, owls, deers, monkeys, horses, mules, cats, dogs and a number of domestic birds.
