OUR NAME - OUR MISSION
Karuna typically translates as "compassion" in English and is a concept used in the spiritual paths of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. The word comes from the Sanskrit kara, meaning "to do" or "to make," indicating an action-based form of compassion, rather than the pity or sadness associated with the English word. Karuna is the doing of something to alleviate suffering. At Karuna Rescue we don't turn our backs. No matter how tough the rescue, or how tough the times, we do something!
