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.
