Pradeepa Rao

Founder & Director, Furry Tales.

Pradeepa has always been an avid animal lover and a staunch supporter of the Adopt, Don’t Shop and No Kill philosophy. She gave up a lucrative banking career to pursue her calling, animals. She rescues, fosters, gets pets adopted in her capacity and also works, as a volunteer, with a number of NGOs and individual animal welfare workers on a regular basis. Her life and plans revolve around the 7 loving brats in her family. She checks their calendars in order to plan her vacations, even before she checks her partner’s! ☺

Pradeepa had to learn how to be a responsible pet parent from scratch and she hopes that by sharing her learnings and experiences, she can inculcate the same passion, values and sense of responsibility in everyone she comes across. In her spare time, she likes to travel the world, read, blog, cook, pet every furry kid that comes her way, watch movies and spend time caring for her plants. She wishes to preserve life in every form.
