Friendicoes-SECA (Society for Eradication of Cruelty to Animals) is a charitable organization whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and give better lives to the stray and abandoned animals in the capital. Friendicoes was established in 1979 by a group of animal lovers in New Delhi, India. They have worked in this field for over 30 years. Their dedicated and developing efforts have made Friendicoes-SECA a household name in Delhi and NCR.
