I have lost several animals to road hits. Little few who survive the brutal run down are crippled for life and many such souls have come home to me to live as permanent residents of the house. The violent deaths and the handicapped lives they lead thereafter is what led me to create the Give Animals a BRAKE campaign, a Bridging Rainbows initiative.

Animal road hits are very common, you and I see it everyday. It is a cause of global concern. Most of the times, animals are considered a little less worthy of a brake. We are not alien to wildlife vehicle collision deaths either. 

Then, talking on the mobile while on the go claims as many animal lives, just that it does not make it to the news ever. A random shoo, in which the animals run for their life, often ends up claiming the lives of both, the animals, as well as the humans. Countless die a brutal death on the spot or get maimed for life. Maybe just a handful stop to help the hit animal while some simply move away without botheration, blind and deaf to the blood curdling shrieks. 

Basically, the root of the evil lies in our insensitivity. The need of the hour is a conscience prodding exercise, a series of reminders, that can help prompt us and others to give thought to the fact that animal lives matter as much. A timely brake can help save an animal life too. All life forms are born equal.

This is a small attempt to come together, raise awareness about the animal road hits and help reduce their incidence through sensitization. If you feel for the cause or just like me you have lost an animal companion(s) (homed or un-homed) to a road hit, or want to help raise awareness to prevent wildlife vehicle collisions, do give animals a brake and please remind others to do so as well.

Please lend your support by signing the petition. 

The campaign is open for dynamic caring souls, traffic police, corporate houses, NGOs, educationists, schools, vehicle production companies, who want to give the cause a push to give birth to more compassion, regardless of the city, State or country, as animal road hits are a matter of global concern.
