Now adopt an animal at the Dehradun zoo to get income tax rebate
Anyone who adopts an animal at the Dehradun zoo will now get income tax rebate! Recently, the zoo officials have drafted a proposal seeking approval from the income tax department, whereby person who adopts an animal at the zoo will not only have their name displayed outside the animal’s enclosure, but also get income tax rebate.
Those who bear the food expenditure for animals will get 50% income tax rebate on it. There are many other zoos such as Naintal Zoo, Kanpur Zoo etc where people have availed such benefits. We have also written to income tax department for their approval. After which these philanthropists will be able to get income tax rebate certificates from us and avail the benefit. With this move, we will be able to encourage many others to adopt more animals in Dehradun zoo, said Zoo director PK Patro.
So far, 11 people have adopted various zoo animals by paying the expenditure on their food.
