"Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will"

-AntonioGramsci

In 1976, Debasis Chakrabarti left his medical education mid-way to join a special course on Animal Psychology. He started by rehabilitating “biter” dogs who were disowned by their owners. This gave a new lease of life to condemned canines, making them socially productive and valued in their own right. In September 1993, the Head of International Affairs of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA,U.K.) Ms. Jennifer Butt, visited the rescue/old-age home “Dogs’ Own” created by Chakrabarti in Calcutta and suggested that he formalize this work. Shortly thereafter in November 17, 1993, the Compassionate Crusaders Trust was established as a registered charity organization, and remains an Associated Member of RSPCA.

In January 1994, Smt. Maneka Gandhi (ex-minister of Government of India) visited “Dogs' Own", and asked Chakrabarti to also look after her organization - "People For Animals" in Calcutta. However, since the beginning of the year 2009, the Compassionate Crusaders Trust has officially dissociated itself from the People For Animals.
