Jagat Bahadur is the Senior Accounts officer for Wildlife SOS. He has been with the organization for over 10 years and has been an incredible member of our team. We would be lost without him. Recently we caught up with him to ask him about his role with the organization.
What is your favorite part about working with Wildlife SOS?
I enjoy using my skills to help animals. As a child I grew up with animals, my father worked for an organization called Friendicoes SECA. This organization worked to help companion animals. I think helping animals is just part of who I am and will always be.

It has been almost 6 months since you made it possible for us to rescue Raju. We wanted to give you an update on how he is doing.
Many of the dozens of wounds that were covering his body have healed. He still has a large one on his front leg that has not completely healed, but has closed about 50%.

When Raju was rescued in July, 2014, his story caught fire and was covered by major news outlets around the world. After 50 years of brutality, and as many as 27 "owners", Raju was finally free.

The public agreed, and hundreds of thousands of people signed a petition requesting that he stay safe with us at Wildlife SOS.
Now, we are thrilled to report that Raju will remain free! After multiple postponements, Raju's case was finally heard earlier this week, and the judge ruled in our favor. Read more »
