The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (PCA), 1960 currently stipulates a penalty between Rs.10 and Rs.50 for any act of cruelty committed against animals. Under these antiquated laws, many of the actions amounting to cruelty to animals are non- cognizable. The monetary fines imposed for crimes against animals in 1960, still stands to date.

As per Newspaper reports, in Mumbai alone, between 2012 and 2017 - 19,028 animal cruelty cases were recorded. No arrests or convictions were made. The victims were dogs, cats, birds, goats, horses, bullocks, fowl and cattle.

The Supreme Court has repeatedly asked the government to amend the Act.  “Parliament is expected to make proper amendment of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, to provide an effective deterrent to achieve the objective and purpose of the Act and for violations under Section 11, adequate penalties and punishments should be imposed.

Come one! Come all!  Let's join hands to make India a safer and better place for animals too!  This campaign is about changing the existing outdated laws. Let us be the voice for the VOICELESS!
