Helping animals far greater service than any other

First understand: It is perfectly legal to feed and care for needy animals. There is no law in India that prohibits anyone from performing such charity.
For those of you who want to hurt dogs , understand why we have street dogs and what they do for us,
For several decades, India following an outdated colonial law and in an effort to eliminate street dogs, continued to kill them in the most barbaric manner. Millions were poisoned , beaten to death , burnt, buried alive, repeatedly electrocuted and even hanged.
Today, not only is it illegal to kill dogs, it is illegal to remove them from any area. The Stray Animals (Dogs) Rules 2001 prohibits any individual, organization or building association from removing or relocating dogs. Complaints, if any, may be directed to the local municipality or an animal welfare organization.
