Stop Killing of thousands of stray dogs in the cities of Pakistan

Warning: Dead dogs shown in the video lying on the streets.

Thousands of dogs are being killed in the streets of almost all the cities of Pakistan as the Government of Pakistan kills more than 50,000 dogs each year.

The government of Pakistan has no animal protection laws, no criminal offence laws against animal abusers and an open policy of killing stray dogs on an yearly basis. There are no animal rescue schemes or shelters provided by the government. The concept of shelter for animals or animal rescue organizations in Pakistan is far from reality. Even the general public appreciates the killing of thousands of dogs each year. 

In 2009, 27,576 dogs were killed within the city of Lahore alone. In 2005, this number was 34,942 for the city of Lahore.

Karachi and Lahore have the highest rate of dog kills each year with more than 20,000 dogs killed in these two cities alone . For smaller cities the average rate of dog kills per year is in the range of 3000 to 6000 dogs.

Here are some of the reports that have made news about the cull of street dogs in Pakistan.

This needs to be stopped in this barbaric, backward and narrow-minded country where dogs are considered pests instead of pets and general public appreciates dog culls instead of saving them.
