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).

Justice for 14 Puppies and their 2 Mothers who were buried alive in Dhaka for Nothing

Last Week a night guard has beaten horribly two mother dog,  then tied them with rope and finally buried alive along with their 05 days old 14 puppies together at Rampura in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The puppies were packed in a sack after breaking their bones and the mother dogs were also brutalised and dumped in a hole already dug up. Night guard Siddique buried the dogs alive and then filled the cavity with earth. The night guard was acting upon instructions of Bagichartak Welfare Association’s officials. Some how the news came in focus to some animal right activists and three voluntary organization named CFP, PAW and ALB jointly asked for a march with other animal right activists in Bangladesh to the spot. They marked the spot and started to dig. Finally the corpse of two female dog and a sack was recovered. And when Zahid Hussain from CFP opened the sack, shockingly corpse of 14 puppies came out.  A case has been filed and all the bodies have been send for post-mortem. But law for animal cruelty in Bangladesh is outdated. The highest punishment is only 3 Euro fine that dosen't make any sense. Animal abuse or cruelty should be treated as serious offense. Lack of a strong law against animal cruelty, such mindless brutalities are becoming very common day by day in Bangladesh because of not having any strict law by the government. People by nature are violent on street dogs mostly because of the lack of humanly education, social disorder and religious superstitions. We demand justice from the government on this case and also demanding to impose a more updated and strict law for any kinds of animal cruelty.

Petition to CEO Noida Authority, UP Chief Minister, Noida Authority, Narendra Modi, District Magistrate of Noida, OSD Noida Authority

Prevent Animal Shelter cum Hospital from Being Shut Down & Save the Animals from Death

In July 2017, Noida Authority took over the running of the Animal Shelter cum Hospital at Sector 94, Noida, which was earlier being run by the SPCA Noida for it. Unfortunately however, the obligation cast on the local authority to provide adequate and timely food & medicines for the animals, and staff salaries on time, is not being met. In fact, the shelter - home to over 1000 animals - is being dismantled before our eyes. Most work happening at the shelter is volunteer driven, but volunteers alone cannot sustain it ; and volunteers definitely cannot pay staff salaries ! Matters have reached boiling point now. The poor staff members have not received their salaries for July, August, and September (inclusive).They have laid down their tools, as these poor people do not have money for food for themselves, for basic necessities, or even transport. From tomorrow, the staff will not be feeding the1000 + animals at the shelter nor treating the ill ones. Patient intake and ambulance services have stopped already, a few days ago. It is a matter of time before animal deaths take place. As compassionate citizens we urge you to take things in hand. Please set systems in place that ensure the timely dispatch of food and medicines for the animals, and salaries for their care-givers. & please release pending staff salaries NOW !
