MPF is a no-kill, independent NGO animal shelter that took root in the city of Pune, Maharashtra – India, in 2006 through the perseverance of its founding members, Oncology Surgeon Dr. Ravi Kasbekar, and Animal Rights Activist Mrs. Padmini Stump.

Padmini and Dr. Kasbekar, both senior citizens, work round the clock, sacrificing their personal lives so that cats and dogs on the street can get timely medical attention and a chance at a new life.
