Save stray animals. They are the loveliest of all.

There are so many pet lovers. Everyone likes to adopt breeds and not the stray animals which are homeless. People need to understand the sensitivity and importance of stray animals. Stray animals are cute and adorable. One of the major issue related to stray animals is the increasing number of stray animals. One of the worst thing about stray animals is that people have the mindsets that stray dogs and cats are harmful, cruel and have no love. Instead they are the one's who love you the most if you show them care and affection. I still remember that one of the foundation asked me to adopt a kitten (stray). They didn't check his health and I received him. When I received him, I realised that his tail and his nerves( urinary and anal) were numb. I messaged one of the foundation member and informed him about the situation. He wasn't bothered about it and said "WOW, TAKE HIM TO VET". I don't know what made him ' WOW' about the kitten's health. He didn't even bother to hospitalize the kitten. And today the cute little kitten is no more. The foundation is one of the famous  foundation and their visions and missions are fake.  Animal rights are: 1. It is the fundamental duty of every citizen of India to have compassion for all living creatures. Article 51A(g). 2. To kill or maim any animal, including stray animals, is a punishable offence. IPC Sections 428 and 429. 3. As per Indian law, street dogs cannot be beaten, killed or driven away or displaced or dislocated, they can only be sterilized in the manner envisaged in the The Animal Birth Control (Dogs) Rules, 2001 enacted under the Indian Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 (A Central Act), vaccinated, and then returned back to their original locations. And there myriads of law but none of them are implemented.  Problems that are faced by stray animals: In India, no matter how big the constitution is, the animals are not given their rights and are always at the risk of euthanizing. The government of India should always conduct a survey regarding the population and growth of stray animals. Though the survey is conducted still the strays are not looked after. There are 30 million stray dogs. There are vets or pet food brands who keep camps regarding neutering the animals so as to inhibit the population of stray animals in USA. This concept should be implemented more often in India. The dog catchers. The dog catchers of many foundations or animal shelter home are useless. They are not trained and they are precisely to euthanize animals. For example: In my locality they are dogs. Some people called upon the dog catchers who were untrained. They had a dog which was infected with rabies. Eventually we didn't allow them to take our dogs away. People have the wrong mindsets of stray animals. Even if you don't feed the stray animals ( especially dogs), they are the one's who will take care of your locality more than the watchman present in the society or the particular locality. If a stray animal is hit by car or they have some other injuries or disease, there are very least amount of vet who will do the surgery or treatment for free. For instance: One of the dog in our locality has got some fracture in its leg. None of the vet is ready to do it for free. The government of India should make some animal related projects and 'implement' them. One of the main aim of the government should be that every city or town should have atleast one shelter home which works for the strays and they should have all the facilities like: MRI scan, ultrasound or sonography, proper employment or salary for the people working in the shelter home, numerous antibiotics and vets and surgeon support.  There are foundations where people do not take cats . They only take dogs. Government of India should make shelter homes who care for cats and kittens also. Although they are easy to manage, still the shelter home do not take cats. It should be made mandatory in schools to teach children to love animals and not to throw stones. Humanity is one that schools never teach. There should not only be humanity between humans but also animals.  In India, there are still such small places where the cats are slaughtered to praise the God. Animal slaughtering should be banned in India.  No matter in what condition the dogs and cats are, the animal shelter home should always be ready to have  them and treat them with proper medication. Children should be taught that animals are their friends and they should stop throwing stones. Government should provide funds to the vet so that they can improvise stray animal's health. Cats and dogs both are adorable. They need love and attention. They need care and medication. As an Indian citizen and as an individual each one should contribute their love and time to the stray animals and be the one to stop the harsh treatment given to them by people.

Petition to Narendra Modi, Maneka Gandhi

Shelter for Dogs on streets

The dogs on street are part of society and our inherent civilization yet every day they suffer from the nuisance of crippling vehicles, stones throw by people, acid poured on them, beaten to death, shot at by guns in residential areas and being abandoned to fend for themselves. Its cruelty practiced every state, city, street and house. All they need is food and some secure boundaries so they can play within and can be protected from the busy roads and people.  I say this coz I hear read and see so may of these wonderful companions suffering for no reason at all but due to sheer negligence and lack of responsibility on our part as society. Merely 2 month pup crippled for her life with both hind legs not working coz someone ran over her. Merely 5 month old puppy shot at by pellet gun and crippled for life (both hind legs damaged) with deep wounds that are yet to close since last 8 months. Some Being tied on all fours and mouth tight shut with rope to be dumped at some other place carried away hanging on a danda coz they were blamed to have bitten someone in your society or coz they bark. I have personally been with so many dogs and never suffered at one's bite. Some cases do happen but only when they feel thretened just like you would react when you are scared.  Its just not normal with the no. Of accident cases and cruelty met to such innocent and voiceless souls. Please urge our state goverments to set up shelters for all street dogs in every district with best of veterinary facilities and awareness programmes for schools and societies (RWAs).

Petition to Manjunath Prasad, Sarfaraz Khan, Dr G Anand

Accelerate Pet Licensing in Bangalore, BBMP

Statement:Pet dogs ownership , both pedigree and indies are on the rise in Bangalore. Cities like New Delhi, Chennai or Chandigarh have had municipal rules that mandate pet dogs to be registered, while there were no enforced rules governing pet dogs in Bengaluru, but the good news is that the proposed new UDD by-laws will enforce this. But why wait ? A Pet license is the responsible thing to do. Having pet dogs licensed is important for the owners , especially in the eventuality of lost or stolen pets, and is also good for the city as the census and health of pets is updated. As of now the dog census shows about 200 or so licenses issued in 2009 to dogs in Bangalore , and the BBMP records themselves show only a total of 2100 licenses issued altogether so far ! Something is clearly wrong. However, as per section 344 of Karnataka Municipal Corporation Act, keeping and feeding animals and birds without the permission of Municipal commissioner or concerned officer is strictly prohibited. Before the rules are stringently made, and given the unwieldy nature of the current registration process with BBMP Vet Inspectors at each ward, its better to create an easy mechanism to mass register dogs at external locations. It can also help in educating them about the benefits of neutering, proper dog tags, stringent rules on leashing and picking up dog poop Proposed By-Laws by BBMP will make pet licensing more stringent & requiredThe proposed by-laws by BBMP elaborates on how the process of licensing the pet dogs has to be done. Accordingly, every dog owner in BBMP limits, should obtain a license to keep the dog at home and renew it every year. It also involves implanting a micro-chip in dog’s body at the owner’s cost as and when approved by the Corporation. The pet dog should also wear a badge and collar with license information on it. Veterinary Officer of BBMP is authorized to issue the license.In Proposed by-laws, Dogs straying around may be capturedThe by-law also makes provisions for any person authorized by the BBMP to capture any dog that is found straying around in public places in the absence of its owner. Captured dog will be detained in a dog’s house or other place appointed by the Municipal Commissioner or Chief Officer.Any dog that is found in public place without a collar and badge will be captured and detained and could also be killed if it is suffering from rabies or showing symptoms of rabies, by the person authorised by BBMP.The by-law also explains the process of reclaiming the ownership of the dog that has been detained by BBMP workers. Such dog could be redeemed by paying a fee of Rs 1 for dog with license and Rs 2 for dog which has no license.It will be mandatory for dog owners to make ear notch or an identification mark as required under Animal Birth Control Programme practised by Animal Welfare Organisations, for neutered dogs.In addition, the by-law explains the ways in which the dogs which are not redeemed by owners could be detained in a dog pound and how the rabies-affected dogs should be destroyed.Penalty for violationWhoever fails to obtain license for dogs from the Corporation, will be imposed a fine of Rs 1,000 and in case of continuing breach, with fine which may extend to Rs 300 for every day if they are continuing the breach after the first conviction or with a fine of Rs 200 everyday if they continue to breach the by-law even after receiving notice from the Commissioner. Request: Let Bangalore lead the way in Responsible Pet Ownership Make pet licensing mandatory quickly. Or while its being set up, encourage external, people-friendly licensing. Clearly state the requirements - License fee Rs 110, renewable annually, upto date rabies and 7 in 1 vaccinations records. Confirm that in case owners are also breeders , they apply or have a valid breeders license & detailed health records for the dog. Breeding needs to be discouraged. Have a clear plan with a goal of a 1000 dogs , 5 wards covered per month for example, , and ensure monthly events at all wards where pet registrations are done en masse. Organizations like NGO's Vet Hospitals , groups like Cubbon Park Canines , Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) will be happy to partner with BBMP on this . Animal Welfare Officers, and HAWO's can also assist. Stray dog sterilisations can be done Sharing a list of all BBMP Asst Directors & vet inspectors and their numbers and address, where pet licensing is available is mandatory. The current one is hopelessly out of date. http://www.bbmp.gov.in/documents/10180/456501/10_pdfsam_QUESTION+%26+ANSWERS-KAN+AND+ENG.+%281%29.pdf/e12896c2-6a61-47fd-93ef-785ee63a5cb7 In addition rules of responsible ownership covering health , breeding and vaccines as per the new AW notifications should be shared Insist that all dogs must be tagged with their license, number , name and owners mobile . This pet licensing information & stats must be available online on BBMP sites. Use these registration drives to check breeders and ascertain their valid licenses , as well as check dogs health as per the new animal welfare notifications. This can avoid unhealthy breeding and sick, discarded pups. Share best practices in other cities especially around responsible leashing, penalties for littering , ills of home breeding etc. We can use this to eventually introduce micro-chipping and pet neutering . Have a tie up with a closeby clinic & run free blood tests or simple medical check ups for the pet dogs on that day .
