BBMP: Renew and issue contracts for Animal Birth Control (ABC) service

Imagine you are walking down a lane. You see one street dog. You either ignore her or feed her something -- and you walk on. A month later, you see not one but seven dogs on the same street -- the original one and her six puppies! Dog populations can multiply every month, which is why Bangalore’s municipal corporation (BBMP) has a free Animal Birth Control (ABC) program in place. As part of the program, BBMP issues contracts to animal welfare agencies to ensure humane surgeries on dogs, as well as anti-rabies vaccinations for the safety of the community. However, this program can be effective only there is a continuous ABC service in operation. The good work of six months can be lost by missing out on a single month of ABC. The contract of my locality's ABC agency ended in early October this year, and BBMP has neither renewed it nor appointed another agency to take over. For every month of delay, the population will rise. It is no surprise that Bangalore's street dog population was 2.9 lakh at last count. Please sign my petition asking BBMP to renew old contracts or issue new ones, two weeks before the old agency’s term ends in an area, to ensure the smooth, continuous functioning and handover of the ABC program. BBMP must also renew or issue new contracts for all expired ones on or before 30 November 2018. Today, my area (West Zone) is affected -- covering 44 wards in six constituencies: Malleswaram, Rajaji Nagar, Vijaya Nagar, Mahalakshmi Layout, Gandhi Nagar and Chamarajpet. Tomorrow, your locality could be left without an ABC program. Last year, with re-zoning and fresh contracts being issued, citizens were left without ABC in some areas for several months. This burgeoning population is a recipe for disaster -- dog migration, more fights, more bites. If we want all this to stop, we need to act SOON and contain the numbers. Please sign and share my petition. Together, we and BBMP can work towards a smooth ABC service and reduce the man-animal conflict.

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.  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.. 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.

Petition to Kalvakuntla Taraka Ramarao, Kalvakuntla Kavitha, The Prime Minister of India, Peta India, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), United Nations Environment Program

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

Petition to Maneka Gandhi, Peta india, directorate of animal husbandry, Dibrugarh District Administration, Deputy Commissioner Dibrugarh

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.
