The Flashback


TIGI is an acronym for ‘Trust In Goodness Inside’. It is not just the name of the foundation but also the name of our beloved 17-year-old cat. The TIGI Foundation was founded in 2012. It is a non-profit animal welfare organization begun by Nuzhat Khan, a psychoanalyst who has fostered more than 100 animals over the years at her residence in Pali Hill. The NGO is supported by her actor son Imran Khan and activist/actor brother Aamir Khan.


The Flashforward


The goal of the organization is to provide abandoned animals with the proper medical and emotional attention that all sentient beings deserve. To reach that goal the foundation needs to raise funds for the construction of a state-of-the-art animal shelter just outside Mumbai. The shelter will be able to facilitate 100 animals at its full capacity and shall have an in-built clinic to ensure that the residents get the adequate medical attention they need.


Being built on a four-acre plot of land and owned by the founding members of the NGO, the shelter will be designed with the inputs of animal behaviorists and veterinarians. The shelter will operate on a ‘no animal left behind’ policy, accepting all animals regardless of their age and health. The idea was driven by the lack of a ‘safe area’ for animals in distress in Mumbai.
