Cease illegal relocation of community dogs

Look at friendly, loving feisty Toni of Cunningham Road aka Blocky. 11 years old, mostly blind & deaf..she, Brownie, Chiku & Harlequin were  inconvenient in a fancy building,  so these friendly dogs were put into a vehicle (on a holiday weekend when we office goers were not around) & thrown in a forest 50kms away by the Building Manager . Toni  was neutered, vaccinated , loved the sun and chicken bones & used to make her displeasure by an odd singing bark, especially when you missed her meal! Nondescript Streeties to others , but all of them were beloved by the community. She had some ear problems that we often admitted her to CUPA for so the staff there also knew her - the stories they could tell you ! The building security loved her as did we . We searched , we begged the building people and made a police complaint. We kept posting and searching, feeling helpless, the walls of disinterest closing around us. Nothing . We never stoped hoping . A year later, blind old Toni trying to make her dogged slow way back to us was spotted by a dog lover in Domlur , but was so weak , she died soon after. Our hearts broke. We could not forgive ourselves. What would the others do in a forest alone, without their community & carers ? We shudder to think of her confusion, sadness & suffering. And there are HUNDREDS like them every month.. so many peaceful community dogs have been illegally relocated in Bangalore & other cities. See this NewsMinute Article . The Supreme Court says no dogs can be relocated or culled , only sterilised and vaccinated . If sterilisation & vaccination followed , then dog population is controlled and humans and dogs are safe . The problem is that ABC at such a slow pace is exacerbating the problem, and that is a genuine issue . But laws cannot be broken . Yet the ABC Centers and BBMP are deluged with calls from people, even councillors and prominent citizens asking for dogs to be killed or relocated. Companies with large software parks or locations are freely getting their Facility Mangers to ‘remove’ friendly dogs and throw them somewhere. Check links below ., This is monstrous as dogs won’t survive in a new place, and their community guardians are left devastated. The dogs die or are attacked . These are neutered, vaccinated dogs so it means that the money and effort of BBMP & tax payers money is wasted.  At best , we can assume that the perpetrators don’t know the law and may do this out of ignorance ( still not acceptable) and  at worst they are breaking the law with full knowledge , aware that the penalties are not so high . Another trend is a deliberate plan to attack an area - we have noticed that the localities are suddenly more open to robbery and breakins a small there are no more community dogs .   Shameful.  AWBI, We demand the laws for relocation be tightened and it be made a non bailable offence with at least ₹5000 fine and community service for the transgressors . It is the transgresserscresponsibility to find the missing dogs at their cost .  We demand that Councillors , Police, and BBMP Health departments escalate the ABC in thaf  area  on war footing and ensure that training is done across departments so the law makers, enforcers and representatives do not break the law or go against the constitution. We demand IFMA (INDIAN Facility Management Association) & others like CREDAIn who control the admin & management of many large companies & residential buildings , to ensure member companies and facility managers are instructed on the illegality of this and are kept aware of their responsibility and culpability and suitable action against erring companies should be taken . Private organisations  or associations like the IFMA & CREDAI , which handle so many of the large corporate or residential  facilities across the city must be made cognizant of their role in perpetrating illegal activities by freely relocating the dogs. We have actual proof and examples with large corporate’s and it is inexcusable to see how single-mindedly & uncaringly dog catchers are employed and done . We demand that CCTV footage of such acts immediately made available to police and animal activists, so that suitable punitive action is taken. Such people should not be allowed to have our own dogs in the future. We demand that the police whether training, whether by individual acceptance of missing dogs at stations, or sensitization off their teams, should support this in a more empathetic and focused fashion. As of now many of the police don’t even know the law there by making it easier for perpetrators get off .  TAKE ACTION NOW! We are sick of this constant & flagrant breaking of the law that affects innocent dogs and their community guardian like this . Let them BE. As per the law. Let them be. Links:

Petition to streetdogshelter

He Needs Just 5$ -Do You have it

Help Albus by Just adding 5$ in his recovery Funds To Adopt Albus Please contact Hello Hoomans, My name is Albus and I am an 8 year old Persian cat. I spent the majority of my life in a tiny cage, and I grew up without any friends; hoomans, cats or otherwise. I was raised to give birth to a lot of little babies, but I never got to see them or play with them, and I spent all my days in a cage with a string, where I was barely handled, petted or loved.  I also did not have a litter box to do my business. My breeder would allow me access to a communal sand box when she felt like it, so I didn’t know how to use a regular litter box. I wasn't given a lot of food, and most of it was not very good for me, so I am quite underweight at 3 kg.  I got rescued by a Team of Great Hoomans (street Dog Shelter) who will get me neutered and taken care of by a foster. I was very scared of her when I first arrived, but my foster is a nice lady. She took me to the vet, and the vet gave me some sad news. Apparently I have polycystic kidney disease, which means I don’t get to have as long a life as most cats and I have to be put on renal food, which is expensive and hard to find.. My creatinine levels are high and I’m very anaemic, I am currently on saline to get better. I also will need a laproscopy to be properly neutered, and only two places do it, which is quite pricey. It’s been a few days of many ouchies with injections, but my foster tells me I’m a brave, strong boy and I’ll get through this.  All of this made me very sad, because I didn't believe anyone could love me, and it makes it that much harder for me to get adopted. But I have hope. I have hope that some hooman somewhere will like me the way I am, and give me the love and care I need. I promise I am very quiet, but I do have the occasional “Maow!” (that is my unique way of meowing). . All I really want is to know what it feels like to be adopted, cuddled, and most importantly, loved.  However, I am still quite sick and traumatised from my time at the breeder's and I need all the help I can get. Will you help me? My foster hooman says that you need lots of "munnie" to do all the things I need to become better again. Can you help her get this munnie? My foster hooman and Street Dog Shelter  have given me all they have, and now they need your help. I really want my second chance, so any donation large or small will help me get my life back Donate and save Albus

Petition to Devendra Fadnavis, Finance minister of maharashtra shri Sudhir Mungantiwar, commissioner of state tax maharashtra shri Rajiv jalota, Deputy commissioner, kalyan division smt Roopmati Parag Manere,

Make E Way Intra State Bill Exempted upto 50 km In Maharashtra.

Respected Sir/Madam, In maharashtra state the intra state e way bill effect from 25th may 2018. In this there is no boundaries or exemption , every one has to create intra state e way bill where goods is transported on motorised vehicle,worth more than 50,000 rs and from 0km to 100km ,200km whatever it may be. wheather if citizen buy goods than also its compulsory to generate e way bill if exceeds 50,000rs. My name is khilan Rajnikant savla , i am from powerloom sector, Textile sector is one of most employment giving sector in india, its backbone of india`s GDP,  textile is big industry it includes process house, sizing units, powerloom, auto looms, non woven, industrial textiles, geo textiles etc due to this policy of 0 km, we all are facing problem as every businesses will effect as every industry will be effected, specially textiles which is 70% unorganised sector like this there are local transporters also in same problem. In maharashtra bhiwandi, ichalkaranji and malegaon textiles and transport both are important sector, and revenue generating is also getting high as india`s cloth more than 60-70% is manufactured in all this cities and local transport is also main businesses. In all this cities job work is done on large scales, and there are number of weavers and local transporters who are unregistered persons, who do work in very small way like 24 loom, 48 loom users are more in bhiwandi and orther cities. and local transporters they just have turnover max upto 5lakh. so the list of unregisterd person is high in all this textile cities. Due to this people will left businesses as this will like to give more time for computers and less time for work, and for all this manpower will also be hired which cannot effort by all , only big firms can effort it. and uneducated person might have to leave business as he cant handle things like this . small weavers who some how runs business by themselves only, how he will manage if his goods are going for job work to more than 5-6 persons and every jobworkers have this problem because they do themselves all work, local transporters are mostly uneducated persons who dont know how to save mobile number in phone. They are from mostly orther state who himself only drives and earn some money. How they will generate e way bill if weaver is unregistered person. because E way bill rule says that if consignee and consignor both are unregistered than transporter have to generate e way bill . Eg if supposed A person sends goods to B person for warping than work done again B person will send goods to C person for weaving than again C person will send goods to A person or will send to D person for dyeing process than again D person will send goods to A person as he was main supplier of goods, later goods will send to sell. and maximum goods exceed 50,000 rs normally as one beam roll is 20,000 and cloth price for 100 meter will be easily 3000 to 5000 easily. In local transports more than 10 beam is send and 100 pcs of cloth is transported. and how local transporter will generate E way bill if weaver is unregistered . We wont be able to go out for holiday or for some work also as for small work we have to be there in office to generate E way bill intra state. There are many situation like this which weavers, process units, sizing units and local transport cant handle one goods will transport to several times only for upgrading goods process, by this government will not having any revenue it will just effect business time line, because if no e way bill generate goods will not be send, and people will just busy in computer only and it will also effect local transporters. it feels handcuff to small business men. During assessment the problem will arised if the person forgot to generate e way bill, than person will liable to pay penalty for those whoes e-way bill is not generated for challan. And government have also declared bhiwandi will developed Asia biggest logistic hub. but how, for small works also e way bill is necessary than for small companies can`t effort it.   People will get ready, only if permission will be given that upto 50 km distance from point of transporter registered office there is no need of intra state e way bill. by this people will feel free and everybody can do business fearlessly , local transporters will also get big sign of relief , whoes money earning is depended upon textiles. Due to demonitization also textiles was worst hit as it was most unorganised sector in india. we all have welcome GST as it have did some organised work of flow in all sector, we do understand that government is doing to stop leakages of taxes and also it will stop robbery, illegal activities etc. as its for people benefits too. We asked to CM Devendra Fadnavis ji and FM Sudhir Mungantiwar ji to exempt E Way Bill intra state to upto 50 km from address of registered transporter office.  As this is example of just textiles and transporters businesses but there are many orthers businesses which will effect too. so i request you to give some relief to business men and local transporters, by giving some kilometers allow to move without intra state e way bill like gujrat and tamil nadu have already allowed.  Thanking you !  yours faithfully khilan R savla.
