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 https://www.scoopwhoop.com/animal-cruelty-in-india/ https://www.newindianexpress.com/nation/2020/jun/19/humans-losing-humanity-rising-instances-of-animal-cruelty-in-india-land-where-they-are-worshipped-2158506.html  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.

An Appeal for 'Designated Parks for Pets'

Don't our pets deserve dedicated green spaces and play equipment? Indian cities are sprawling in all directions relentlessly. Cities like Hyderabad with an 'Ocean of Land' in all directions are booming with 'Luxurious Gated Community Villas and Apartments' attracting modern dwellers from all over the country. Hyderabad city has been consistently rated among the best cities to live (for humans) and as fastest-growing Real Estate markets in the Asia Pacific Region. Biggest of the builders are constructing best housing projects in Hyderabad with best of the facilities. However, we don't see any of these projects creating spaces for the recreation of Pets. Pets' parents and families have no space to take their pets for play, recreation and socializing. How self-centred we humans are? Animal Welfare Board of India has passed laws that ensure certain rights for pet's families, such as housing societies can't impose restrictions on pets owners from taking their pets to the common spaces. The reality, however, is there are either no spaces for the pets to play or even when there are spaces, residents associations impose restrictions against the movements of pets, which is a violation of the law.  To the credit of the State Government of Telangana, the first dedicated park for Pets, namely dogs was inaugurated in the year 2018 on a one and half acres land. Which is a step in the right direction, but clearly not enough for this 625 km² city with about 2 million households and a good number of them having pets as family members. In this background, we are making the following appeal and request for your support: 1. There are 1800 Parks in Hyderabad. Dedicate at least two large parks in every circle for Pets, especially, dogs. If necessary, you can introduce a small user fee for pets' parent to pay to meet the cost of upkeep. 2. Make a policy that every gated community project in over five-acre land should have a dedicated park for pets with play equipment.  3. The Government of India should include the creation of parks for pets as part of green infrastructure as one of the criteria for a smart city.  For More Information, Please watch this video:- https://www.facebook.com/petsgurukul/videos/724579858248179
