Petition to Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Justice of India Hon’ble Mr. Justice Ranjan Gogoi
Justice for 18 DOGS AND 7 CATS POISONED TO DEATH on June 4 2019 in Ambarnath, Maharashtra
Dear Sir, 18 Dogs and 7 Cats have been poisoned to death in Ambarnath, Maharashtra and the F.I.R. Has been filed. The police is investigating and said that a gang of thieves poisoned them so that they can attempt robbery. They have also mentioned about the drones that were sent by the thieves to check the area. However, the area itself is a slum and the investigation clearly is going in a wrong direction. If the real culprit is not caught, this will still continue. We also demand strict actions against the culprit as this is a mass murder of these poor souls who died a very painful death. Thanks & Regards

Strict action against Resident & Apartment Associations that Ban pets
Its against the law to ban pets from residences and apartments . Plain and simple. Yet hundreds of associations make bylaws banning pets ( not tenable or implementable ) routinely break the law , either in ignorance or disinterest by banning pets , and implementing this , with punishments that range from fines to outright evictions. In addition to being illegal, it puts a huge pressure on the system by resulting in pets being given up ,sent to shelters, even abandoned and euthanized, a false choice created in addition to families who remain shattered that they have had to choose.Strict action should be taken by the heartless people who do this , especially since it goes against the law of the land. Unless some form of punishment , either a fine or community service is given, the fragrant disobeying of the notification will simple NOT stop. We ask that the police & lawmakers step up to enforce this if any cases were to come up. Most people say that police is indifferent so don’t have dairy in taking this up. In addition, we should scan the bylaws of a few sample Associations ( available with the Registrar) and anyone with this illegal pet ban clause should KEB firmly & summarily dealt with. Registrar of Societies should also take action against such Apartment or Resident Welfare Associations. The Registrar apparently has the power to dissolve or derecognise an RWA, if need be and if illegal actions are undertaken . Associations can't impose or pass by laws as it has no legal sanction.The lack of awareness has resulted in some form of goondagiri and bullying by those who do not want pets. Further bullying by the Association would amount to criminal intimidation & can result in a NCR being filed under Section 506 which can then be taken up by police and magistrate .Yes, pet parents need to be super vigilant in ensuring that the pets are responsibly managed , vaccinated , leashed , poop always picked up and use public spaces like lifts etc sensitively.However, while this side needs to be managed , the law is the law , and apartment associations cannot break it . We come across at least 5 complaints per week, and many where the level of bullying and threats is extreme. People rarely escalate fearing rebuke & breaking the law with neighbours. The families suffer as do the pets.This bullying & ignorant intimidation has to STOP. The Animal Welfare Board of india ie AWBI says : 'If at all any association succeeds in intimidating a pet owner into 'giving up' or 'abandoning' a pet, it will actually have abetted violating the law and may well be aggravating the menace of ownerless animals on the street, that are not accustomed to living on the streets and, therefore, get involved in and lead to accidents, injuries and deaths. The association will therefore be guilty of criminal intimidation . Intimidation is an offence in law.' Please refer to Section 11 (3) of Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act 1960. It is also against article 51 A (g) of the Indian Constitution according to which it is the duty of every citizen to have compassion for animals, living creatures and improve the natural environment. Thakur said, “The society resolution is illegal as it is unconstitutional.” "It is well-known that in the recent times, RWAs, apartment owners' associations, cooperative group housing societies and other gated complexes, have taken to imposing many unreasonable restrictions on pet-owning residents such as disallowing the use of lifts or parks by pets, or even banning pets altogether. They are also known to frequently encourage mistreatment, dislocation and dumping of street dogs." The circular also acknowledged that compassionate people who wish to tend to and feed street dogs, are often discouraged and pressurised to refrain from doing so. There is widespread resentment against these moves, which apart from being unreasonable, is also unlawful and against recent court rulings.With regards to pet dogs which are usually targeted by society members who would promptly 'legislate' in general body meetings and pass resolutions banning pets and controlling their behaviour, the circular says: Even by obtaining consensus or even if a majority of the residents want it, one cannot legally introduce any sort of 'ban' on the keeping of pet dogs by residents. Nobody can insist that 'small-sized' dogs are acceptable and 'large-sized' dogs are not. No member or committee can cite barking as a valid and compelling reason for any ban sought to be introduced. Members cannot do it even by amending bylaws or regulations and as such a 'ban' cannot be put into place since it is illegal and does not have the sanction of the law. In fact, in trying to 'ban' pets, or limit their number, you interfere with a fundamental freedom, guaranteed to the citizens of India i.e. the freedom to choose the life they wish to live, which includes facets such as living with or without the companionship of animals. If the resident with pet/s does not violate any civic or other laws, nobody in the society has the right to object. The general body cannot frame or amend bylaws that are at variance with the laws of the country. Even by a complete majority, a general body cannot adopt an illegality. No one has the right to legislate and 'lay down law' for residents and apartment owners or even tenants. With regard to a common scourge for pet-owners, the use of lifts by pets, AWBI has laid down that there are court rulings to the effect that pets cannot be disallowed from the use of lifts by pets. A court has, in fact, known to have observed that 'dogs are family' and can use lifts for free. One has to ensure that this kind of a restriction is, therefore, not imposed in the form of either a ban or any special charges for the use of lifts by pets. With regards to the use of parks by pets, AWBI says, "Banning pets from garden or parks is short-sighted. Firstly, you may or may not own the garden or park in question. Secondly, pets that are not properly exercised may show aggression in frustration and that surely, cannot contribute to the benefit of the residents. It may be better to fix timings when pets can be walked without causing inconvenience to other residents. These timings can then be intimated to the general body." Where the use of leashes/muzzles by pet owners, defecation by pets in community premises, imposition of fines and other similar measures is concerned, a member may request pet-owners to keep their pets on leash when walking them in common areas. One cannot, however, insist on the use of muzzles. The law already provides for penalties for negligent pet owners, which the aggrieved parties can avail of. AIWA has even clarified on the issue of cleaning of pet excreta by pet owners. "In the absence of central or state laws requiring cleaning of pet excreta by pet owners, one cannot impose any rule regulating bylaws with respect to mandatory cleaning of the same or impose special charges or fines on pet owners." Members could experiment with the creation of various pet defecation areas within community premises. These can be imaginatively spaced out within the precincts and one may request petowners to train their pets using the same. Nobody can however, impose fines and special charges of any kind on pet owners because there is no mandate in the law for the same. If at all any association succeeds in intimidating a pet owner into 'giving up' or 'abandoning' a pet, it will actually have abetted violating the law and may well be aggravating the menace of ownerless animals on the street, that are not accustomed to living on the streets and, therefore, get involved in and lead to accidents, injuries and deaths. The association will therefore be guilty of criminal intimidation . Intimidation is an offence in law. Please ensure this is properly actioned so pet owners are not routinely threatened and their rights violated.

Free vaccination for canine distemper
Hi, Recently a pet dog was left to die on road because it had canine distemper.. There is no cure for canine distemper(CD)..

Please support us in this cause and help save our friendly canines..
Petition to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike
BBMP Pet Licencing process need to be simple & Easy online for pet owners in Bangalore
Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike’s (BBMP), has issued a new pet licensing scheme where only one approved dog can be reared in a flat while an independent house cannot have more than three dogs. For pet parents and pet activists with more than one Dog, this ruling is harsh. And so do we really.....? ...Still not answered ..??? 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 Online 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. www.bpalonline.com an venture by Whizzles Pet care Pvt Ltd.& BlueBird Groups as a noble initiative towards helping the Dog Owners & Pet Lovers of Bangalore to get the RFID Micro-chip at very low cost & working with the prompt effort to help pet owners in bangalore to avail the BBMP Pet Licences online.. www.bpalonline.com as emerged to encouragement with positive focus on ensuring that responsible Pet ownership & other Petting services where addressing the issues faced by Pet Owners in bangalore. The current BBMP Animal Husbandry Department has amazing guidance from the current BBMP JC Health as well as from concerned citizen stakeholders and we hope and trust these changes would come through positively and very soon.

We can feed the stray dogs by throwing plastic bottles into this machine!
Recently, I came across an article on poisoning stray dogs in some states. I don't know whether it's true or not. But what I know is, we have a number of dogs on streets that need care but not getting any. Instead they're being tortured in unexplainable ways. Let's forget about the care they need, but atleast give the food they deserve! How can we do that We don't have to spend any money for that! All we have to do is throw plastic bottles into a machine which in turn provides food to dogs. Yes! It's possible and is being implemented in Istanbul! A Turkish company PUGEDON invented a Smart Recycling Box, which releases dog food from the bottom whenever a plastic bottle is deposited. Which means, the food for stray dogs is paid for by the waste plastic bottles. Save the environment by recycling plastic AND feed the stray dogs. Win-win situation!! Stray animals are going through a lot right now and they don't deserve this. We must let the Governments know that this needs to be implemented in our state/country. Sign this petition and make it possible! Whatever place you're from, mail me your place/decision maker and I'll add it to the petition! Sign and make this possible!! Read more about this here

Freedom for Heera
Meet Heera! (The homeless horse of Dibrugarh) Heera has an owner and yet he is homeless! A lone horse battling the harsh weather, rain and scorching heat alike, striding through the dangerous Dibrugarh (Assam) traffic is a common sight most people in Dibrugarh have witnessed. The graceful animal rummaging through the dirty dustbins for food is a sight that will break your heart. The pitiable condition of the animal has outraged many onlookers. And with request pouring in from many quarters, we, the Animal Welfare People (AWP) have decided to take some action. Few days back, lack of food and care took a toll on Heera's health and he collapsed on the roadside. He was extremely dehydrated, malnourished and weak. We provided him with food and water. However, the owner was nowhere to be seen. From the rope tied on his neck, we assumed that he had an owner and we tried by all means to locate him. With our members trying every possible way, we finally caught up with the owner—a man with meagre means, someone who can hardly provide for himself, let alone keep a horse as a pet. The owner, it seems acquired Heera to satisfy his outrageous ego. He bought Heera some 6 months ago (we don't know for how much) and when we asked him, he said that he always wanted a horse (mujhe shaukh hai Ghora rakhne ka). But since he cannot feed him a proper meal (he feeds him biscuits at times) he lets him loose on the streets to find food for himself. For now we've tried to get him treated and have been feeding him regularly. We also have committed to bear all the expenses of his treatment, medicines and food. But even then Heera is still exposed to the threats of lack of shelter and the traffic of busy streets. We, at AWP want to relocate him to someplace better, where all his needs can be taken care of. But, we need the owner’s permission to rehabilitate or relocate Heera to a better situation! We have tried to reason with the owner but in spite of his inability to look after or give proper care and shelter to Heera, he refuses to give up his custody. No amount of coaxing, pleading or reasoning could move him. And from what we have learnt, he plans to buy another Horse (a female to be precise) for ₹5000 in the coming months. He is least bothered about the pain and suffering that Heera has to undergo each day. And now he desires to acquire another horse—a female horse? Another validation of status perhaps! We are afraid this will be the highest form of animal abuse if he is allowed to acquire one more horse when he can't and doesn't take care of the one he already owns. In the Chapter III of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, the laws relating to pets are mentioned. Any owner who fails to provide his animal with sufficient food, drink or shelter- Section 11 (h) Any person who, without any reasonable cause, abandons an animal in such a situation where the animal is bound to suffer pain due to starvation or thirst- Section 11 (i) The punishment, for any of these offences is upto ₹100, and three months imprisonment in case of repetition of the offence. Citizens of Dibrugarh, we appeal to you to raise your voice with us. We alone cannot pressurize the owner; we alone cannot convince the administration to action in this matter. But with our joint efforts we can do it. Our petition is addressed to Maneka Gandhi, honourable MP and Founder of People for Animals (PFA), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India and the District Administration of Dibrugarh urging them to compel the owner to give up his custody of Heera. The petition is filed on the following grounds: He(the owner) is unable to provide food and shelter for Heera, which is the basic requirement for an animal to survive. A big animal like Heera needs a lot of space for daily exercises and recreation, which his owner has failed to provide him with. Heera is most of the times abandoned on the streets by his owner sometimes days on end, exposing him to all sorts of threats (with no regard to the trauma he has to endure in the busy traffic). Heera's owner does not take care of his medical needs, or hasn’t taken him to the vet even once in these 6 months of his ownership. Heera is also often found tied on a spot with no roof or shade for prolonged hours irrespective of the weather or the time of the day. The owner often mercilessly beats Heera in order to tame him. All of these grounds speaks volume of the ill-treatment and abuse the owner metes out to poor Heera on a daily basis. Please help us, help Heera. Sign this petition. Share this petition. Talk among your friends. Make some noise.
