Petition to Arvind Kejriwal

Make Delhi canine rabies free. Not by killing dogs but by participating in the ABC program

The ABC (Animal Birth Control) programme is being run by the MCD with the help of NGOs since 2002 but the programme seems to have failed as the stray dog population seems to have inceased manifold. Although, there are no statistics to prove it but the man-dog and man-man conflict has risen in the capital and the situation is getting worse day by day. This is primarily because the way the programme is being implemented is quite faulty. The following are the gaps in the system which need to be addressed: 1 There is hardly any awareness about the programme among the common people of Delhi. The RWAs majority of them don't know that relocation of dogs is a punishable offence and that the only way they can solve the dog problem in their colony is by getting them sterilised.  2 The caregivers or the people who feed the dogs also don't know what to do with the dogs. And they often face resistance from the other residents who are scared of dogs. There are constant fights in colonies and the situation has become very severe in recent days 3 The NGOs who carry out Sterilization and vaccination of dogs are just a handful hence they are overburdened.  4 Rabies is a deadly disease but one which can be easily prevented and unfortunately the MCD has not tackled this well What should be done: 1 Bring people's participation by bringing direct collaboration between the NGOs and the RWA. The RWA should take the help of the caregivers / feeders of their colony in getting the dogs picked for Sterilization and vaccination 2 Bring right awareness about rabies. Dogs do not bite without provocation and only a dog bite of a rabid dog causes rabies. A normal dog can be kissed, licked, patted, hugged and cajoled. A bite or a scratch from such a dog will never cause rabies. To ensure the dogs are rabies free the colonies can organize annual anti rabies vaccination program with the help and support of the caregivers / feeders. This way the children, adults and every person in the colony is safe. All we need is people's participation and positive approach towards dogs which is considered man's best friend.

Petition to Animal Welfare Board of India, Maneka Gandhi, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

Justice for Strays : Guidelines should be made about treating stray animals

Enclosing here with my friend Shruti's genuine concern and complaint against those who run amok against stray animals particularly dogs . I fully endorse whatever Shruti has to say .  Enclosed below is her heart wrenching grievance . I and my family have been feeding three dogs in our neighborhood since April 2020.Recently,a relative ( Madhusmita Mishra) of one of our neighbors came back to Bhubaneswar. On the 11th of July 2021,my father was downstairs at 4am.Just then, the lady got a stick to hit the dogs.A similar incident took place on 14th when my mom was downstairs when the lady tried to hit the dogs again. When my mother tried to stop her, she threatened to hurt my mom and started yelling at her. My mom and she had a very loud and severe back and forth of words. This continued on to 15th when the older lady bursted our door and forcefully entered our flat to yell at my mom, after this incident being reported to the police by us.On the same day, the police came to our building to get the word of both the parties. I and a cousin who was visiting were called in as eye witnesses and we're more than grateful for the help of the police and getting the legal support we need. This whole chapter has been horrible and no less than a nightmare. We are made to feel unsafe in our home. We are being harassed for helping other fellow living beings that we share this planet with. And the scariest part is that how common being in the same situation as ours is. I sincerely request you to sign this petition to bring this monstrosity all around the country to an end.Thank you,Shruti Kar.Area: Nayapalli , BhubaneswarDepartment involved: Nayapalli Police Station Accused: Madhusmita Mishra Hope the authorities take note and initiate action

Petition to Sh. Narendra Modi, Sh. Giriraj Singh, Animal Welfare Board of India

#NoMore50 #JusticeForManika

Manika, a street dog, was found injured on the streets of Delhi by a kind soul. She was rescued and admitted to India's oldest and Asia’s largest all-animal shelter, the Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre (SGACC), located in the capital city with a hope that she will receive proper treatment and will someday go back home.  Instead, she was murdered in cold blood by the two Paravets and also allegedly raped by them. Manika was put through this ordeal, as a punishment, for biting one of them in pain while receiving treatment. She was rescued by a female staff of SGACC, who being the only eye witness to this has found herself at the receiving end of threats including and not limited to that of physical abuse for recording the torture and ousting one of the routine activities that are undertaken at India's oldest and Asia’s largest all-animal shelter. The UTTER and DEAFENING SILENCE of upper management in the wake of this TRUST SHATTERING & SHAMEFUL horrific string of activities that took place at India's oldest and Asia’s largest all-animal shelter, the Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre (SGACC), is deeply disturbing. WHY IS THERE No Swift action and Penalty executed for such a #Crime & perverse #AnimalAbuse, in the very place that promised to be a safe haven and healing sanctuary for thousands from miles around?? Manika’s soul bares the painful tale of all the ways she was violated. The scars and memories left behind with those who saw these eyes, are deep and furthermore painful.  As compassionate citizens of India and as animal lovers that we fondly call ourselves ----  we should and Must stand for what's right, and seek #JusticeForManika - without Bias, without Prejudice! This petition for #JusticeForManika, stands forth you for the following reasons -  1. The perpetrators and the organisation should be strictly punished so that this incident serves as a deterrent and a lesson for those who harm animals in the guise of Animal Welfare. 2. Active monitoring and incorporation of checks and balances in place by Animal Welfare Board of India whose foremost function is to ensure implementation of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 as well as  the local state husbandry department for the sake of welfare of the animals, especially to regulate the functioning of all establishments housing any animal. 3. Amend the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act, 1960, by making all actions & omissions amounting to cruelty to animals cognizable and updating the penalty prescribed to inflation corrected amounts as of 2020. Please sign and share this petition, post it on your social media so that Manika gets justice without bias and prejudice.  Join my fight for #JusticeforManika #NoMore50, so that no animal is ever tortured the way Manika was by the people who were supposed to heal and protect her. #NoMore50 #IndiaForAnimals #RIPWelfare #JusticeforManika

Petition to Government of India

Justice for animals and stricter laws against animal abusers

To all the animal lovers in India, All living things have a right to live on this Earth but, we, very often become, totally, insensitive to their pain, only because animals can’t speak the language of humans, they don’t have a voice. Every day in India, animals are beaten, neglected, or forced to struggle for survival. Left in unsanitary conditions with no food or water, they have little hope as they live out their days without the compassion they deserve. Some are found and rescued, given the chance to experience how great life and humans can be; others aren't so lucky. To grow as a nation, we must fight for these abused animals' rights and severely punish heartless owners. It is up to us to speak for these creatures who lack a voice, for who will if we don't? People justify their abuse towards animals as protection against harm, but the truth is that the animals are trying to protect themselves. I have personally seen people hurting dogs for the fun of it and it breaks my heart to see that.  Here are some instances of animal abuse  What can we do By signing and sharing this petition, we can make viewers aware about what is going on with respect to animals and we can make the government aware and increase the severity of punishment against animal abusers.
