PMO: Increase Penalty for Animal Cruelty So That It Acts As a Deterrent
Rs 100. That's what people who perform beastly, inhumane acts against animals are fined and allowed to walk free. No wonder we read about animals exposed to cruelty every day. These helpless creatures are incapable of standing up for themselves. That's why it is up to us to stand together and fight for them. Join my fight for justice so that no animal is ever tortured the way Lucky was. This is the story of Lucky. A stray dog, aged one was mercilessly beaten by the two watchmen of Turf View society. Media reports say they did this on the commands of a resident just because the homeless animal was looking for a shelter during rain. The dog was beaten on each nook and corner of his body, including the head so that he could be taught a lesson for entering the society. He was beaten in a manner such that his horrifying screams could be heard by other animals outside and serve as an announcement for them about the consequences they would face upon doing what he did. Today, the poor animal is in a state of coma. He needs our help. He needs us to stand up for him, against this cruelty happening against animals around us. A FIR has been filed against the two culprits, that is, the watchmen but the building resident, who is equally responsible for the miserable state of the dog, is yet to be booked. Animal welfare organizations transported the victim to an animal hospital and he being treated currently. But we need to fight so that no other animal ever has to suffer at the mercy of such cruel beings and to bring justice to the dog. When the right of a human being is violated, we become so outraged. We protest, fight for our kind, to deliver justice to them. Somebody here today deserves to get justice as well. If the culprits of the poor animal are prosecuted rightly today for their act of inhumanity, this will serve as a threshold for all animal abusers. People will be scared of the consequences beforehand and hence will not commit such a heinous crime. The fight is not just for one dog, it is for all animals. Animal cruelty is very prevalent even today. We need to fight against it. We are equally responsible for those suffering around us if we turn a blind eye to such incidents. My heart has been heavy with pain and eyes filled with tears ever since I have read about the attack. I appeal everybody to kindly sign the petition and share it forward with your fellow beings to ensure another painful scream does not go in vain. Join us in appealing to our Prime Minister to increase the maximum penalty for animal abuse cases under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960. Stop animal abuse, save our strays. #SaveOurStrays Picture Credit: Google Images
Petition to Samantha Ward-Smith
Harsher punishment for people whose dogs are dangerous, out of control in public & attack
Jeffrey the mini wirehaired dachshund was attacked on Crosby Beach... the dogs ripped little Jeffrey apart and ultimately Jeffrey lost his life due to the carelessness of the dogs owner. Jeffrey suffered horrific injuries including broken ribs, a broken fibula, pulmonary convulsion and serious wounds to his neck and abdomen. We want harsher punishment for people who do not properly train and socialise their dogs, yet allow them to be muzzle free and lead free in public places. We should not be in fear walking our dogs in public places that they may face an attack, from dogs with careless owners. We need harsher laws so owners of dogs who are likely to attack take the appropriate steps to ensuring it does not happen i.e. leads and muzzles. This is in memory of Jeffrey

SAVE THE BEES: ban the use of chemical pesticides in public spaces & plant flowers instead
ProblemBee decline since the late 1990s has become a serious problem. Beekeepers around the world have noticed unusually high rates of decline in honeybee colonies, and unfortunately, this is not all about a decline in the availability of honey. Bees are key to food production, as they are vital in the pollination of crops. One-third of the food we eat depends on pollinating insects, and in Europe alone, 4,000 vegetables depend on insect pollination. If this trend of decline continues, crop yield, which already faces a multitude of challenges, will diminish further. The UK is falling behind in the fight to protect these indispensable species. Since 2010 there has been a 45% loss of commercial honeybees in the UK. The UK National Action Plan for the Sustainable Use of Pesticides, although conscious of risks to water quality and plant protection, ironically fails to acknowledge the need to protect insects, who are vital in the protection of plant species. This plan fails to prevent pesticides from being used in public spaces. When an area is sprayed with more pesticides, agricultural structural elements are lost, and insects vanish. As such, more needs to be done to prevent this and protect the invaluable species of bees before it's too late.SolutionCities like Amsterdam might have found the solution. Like the rest of the world, it's bee population has been in steep decline. However, since 2000, whilst this trend has continued for the rest of the world, Amsterdam's bee population has risen by 40%. Planting native flowers in public spaces (such as in parks and on street corners), installing insect homes across the city, and introducing a ban on the use of chemical pesticides in public spaces has enabled Amsterdam's bee population to bloom.The UK National Action Plan for the Sustainable Use of Pesticides does not include such a prohibition on the use of chemical pesticides, only: "in certain areas (including public spaces and conservation areas) that the amount used and frequency of use is as low as reasonably practicable."If we are truly committed to saving bees, the species which uphold so much of our wildlife and food production, we need to take this further and ban the use of chemical pesticides in public spaces and provide bees with an environment in which they can thrive. Our lives depend on theirs.
Petition to Karmenu Vella
Stop the mass slaughter of dolphins by the fishing industry in EU waters
Thousands of short-beaked common dolphins are being killed by fishing vessels targeting pelagic fish species in EU waters. This barbaric practice is dismissively referred to as 'bycatch' by the fishing industry. I founded Blue Planet Society to conserve our amazing marine wildlife - and I'm determined to help save short-beaked common dolphins from these horrific deaths. I'm calling on Karmenu Vella, the EU Commissioner for Environment Maritime Affairs & Fisheries, to take urgent action to end this cruel and avoidable mass slaughter of these highly intelligent and much-loved animals. Please sign petition to help save short-beaked common dolphins.

Your compassion is much appreciated by all living beings. Thank you so much.
Petition to GVK, CIDCO
Animals are dying at Navi Mumbai International Airport Site! Appeal CIDCO to build Shelter
If you haven't heard already, construction of Navi Mumbai International Airport has begun at Panvel. This land, used to be collection of villages, which have now been abandoned and flattened for the construction. The villagers left tonnes of rubble and 100s animals behind. These animals, once dependent on the villagers for food and water, are now walking miles to find nothing but mud, rocks and dust. The site preparation involves breaking down hillocks and boulders and levelling the ground. Furthermore, the construction equipment, destruction of water bodies and constant movement of rocks and earth have injured many animals. A group of Activists - NMIA Rescuers have been feeding the animals. Every day, they make their way to the site, walk through barren land and pick up stray dogs and cats who are often famished or injured. They feed these animals each and everyday. They also carry water to fill up the water bowls placed at the site. The total expenses for feeding and transport exceeds Rs 3000 per day! We no longer have the funds left to feed them. It is the responsibility of the Government Body and the Contractors of this project to rehabilitate these animals. We are appealing CIDCO to build a Shelter for the animals affected by this project. Please sign this petition to save the animals at the NMIA site from starvation and death! To volunteer or donate for the feeding and rescue mission please contact Pooja Teli at 7208878300
Petition to Pope Francis, Cardinal Eamon Martin, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin
Pope Francis: Ask Ireland’s government to ban blood sports!
Acknowledging that Pope Francis took the name of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment, this petition appeals to him to intervene with the Irish government on behalf of animals subjected to cruel practices in Ireland. In particular hare coursing and fox hunting. Our government permits coursing clubs to capture our native wild hares for use as live bait in so-called sporting events. The animals are chased within the confines of wired enclosures…mauled, battered, tossed about like broken toys…as fans roar their approval. Hares that survive physically unscathed may die afterwards of stress-related conditions. Foxes are hounded to exhaustion and then ripped to pieces by the dogs, and fox cubs are used to “blood” young hounds across Ireland in the months leading up to the official hunting season. Fur farms thrive here too, with more than 200,000 mink gassed to death each year after enduring six months of cruel and unnatural confinement. A Bill aimed at banning those blots on our countryside will be presented to parliament in September. We hope the Pope may be able to bring our concerns about animal cruelty in Ireland to the attention of the Irish government, and, if possible, prevail upon our politicians to act decisively to protect ALL animals and end all forms of animal cruelty.
