Sai Baba Ashram: STOP NOW THE KILLING OF DOGS BY POISONING in Puttaparthi

    1. SAI ANIMAL LOVERS
    2. Petition by

      SAI ANIMAL LOVERS

      ALL OVER THE WORLD, India

In the ashram of the late Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in Puttaparthi, Andra Pradesh, India, the well-known family of 9 dogs, a mother with her pups of different ages, has been completely exterminated by poisoning. A first wave of killings happened on Easter day (30 March 2013)  and took the life of 7 of them, two could be treated in hospital and saved in extremis. A recent new wave of poisoning occured on 5th May 2013 which killed also the two surviving dogs. They were all young, kind, loving dogs, sterilized, vaccinated against rabies, born in the ashram, living peacefully and permanently there for many years, loved and cared by many animal lovers and above all they were dear friends to all of us. The joy they were giving to all can be seen in the photo album dedicated to these innocent victims ( http://sdrv.ms/16hJ795 ).

Many other dogs in the ashram which are also all castrated and vaccinated by the Karuna Society are also often mistreated, some are strangely disappearing and the others are still in danger of being soon poisoned if the culprits of this deplorable killing are not exposed by a proper, legal and objective investigation. A complete and detailled unfolding of the situation and the recent events is available at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/saibabaofindia/message/26674

A flow of personal complaints from many all around the world after the first poisoning remained unheeded by the authorities of the ashram. Now we plead the authorities to listen with compassion to the cries of those divine innocent creatures’ sufferings and of all our bleeding hearts after knowing about such cruelty against the animal kingdom. We pray them to take all initiatives to solve the case and to stop the repeated incidents of dogs poisoning and to promote their future protection and welfare e.g. by launching a SAI ANIMAL WELFARE PROJECT.

OUR MIGHT as caring human beings IS OUR LOVE AND OUR DEVOTION TO RIGHT ACTION AND NON-VIOLENCE towards all living beings including the animals. EACH VOICE OF THE HEART COUNTS. So please join us in this movement of Love by signing this international SAI DOGS PETITION and by raising awareness around you, using Facebook and Twitter and informing all your friends and family members about this international action to save our friends.

    1. URGENT NEED TO CHANGE HUMAN BEHAVIOUR AND IGNORANCE !

      SAI ANIMAL LOVERS
      Petition Organizer

      On the 3rd April 2014, THE HINDU newspaper reported in its article "Street dogs: lazy, but not agressive" the results of a study and research led by Dr.Bhadra of the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Kolkata, and which were published in the CURRENT SCIENCE paper.
      Their conclusions corroborate our approach and request for :
      - a real behavioural change towards the street dogs,
      - the urgent need of educating common people who are still too much ignorant and wrongly fearful of street dogs and,
      - promoting the protection and welfare of "man's best friends" for a life together in security, harmony and love.

      P.S.: The Hindu article and the full study are at :

    3. STILL NO CHANGE !!!

      SAI ANIMAL LOVERS
      Petition Organizer

      After 4 months of campaign, the conditions of the ashram dogs are still very sad: regularly mistreated, beaten with sticks,... and not fed decently. Till today we count one dozen dogs poisoned inside the ashram and many more killed or captured by villagers of Puttaparthi. It is deplorable that an international Organization pretending to teach Human Values to the world is not able to take care of and protect humble beings living in his own home!!! What an irony in promoting Narayana Seva (giving food to the poor) while letting starve dogs at their feet!
      We are feeling so much sad and helpless in front of this pathetic situation of our beloved doggy friends!

    4. PUTTAPARTHI, THE TREBLINKA FOR THE DOGS!

      SAI ANIMAL LOVERS
      Petition Organizer

      In the village of Puttaparthi, another pack of 7 dogs, the Sundari family, have also been poisoned within the last few days before the 30th June. They were also native of the ashram but for their safety, had been relocated outside the ashram on a private field. All are now dead also. Is this "holy" place becoming an extermination camp for the local dogs?

    5. PETITION REMAINS OPEN AS LONG AS NEEDED!!!

      SAI ANIMAL LOVERS
      Petition Organizer

      Regretfully, till today the ashram authorities have not announced any measures to avoid further poisoning and to protect the dogs.

      Though the Indian laws towards the protection of animals are best in the world, they remain unapplied in Puttaparthi. The laws have to be respected not only by all simple citizens but also by the rich, mighty people or organizations. No one should benefit of the protection, the laxity and the cover-up from the politicians, the police or the nearby community.

      To remind the Organisation all over the world that changes towards Truth, respect of the laws, care and protection of the animals are still a necessity in the Sai Baba Ashram in Puttaparthi, this petition will remain open as long as needed!!!

      On behalf of our friends, the dogs who cannot speak for themselves, many heartfelt thanks to all of you!
