Voluntary agencies are non-governmental, non-profit organizations primarily established to
represent the needs and aspirations of the people intended to serve. This study was conducted to
find out the perceived impact of voluntary agencies involved in animal husbandry development in
rural areas. A sample size consisting of one hundred beneficiaries were selected from three voluntary
agencies that were operating in Madurai district of Tamil Nadu by using proportionate random
sampling technique. The data were collected through a well-structured and pre-tested interview
schedule. The results revealed that majority of the respondents perceived about the medium to high
level impact created by voluntary agencies in rural society. Majority of the respondents acknowledged
about the increase in knowledge and adoption in animal husbandry practices, income, savings, debt
clearance, investment in animal husbandry and allied enterprises, outside contact, social recognition,
spending capacity and organizational participation after becoming beneficiaries of voluntary agencies
