is still in its growing stage. We need more people to
participate for our cause. We are not only looking after their
daily welfare, but are also fighting for cruelty towards any
animal and are fighting for a co-citizenship right for the
animals. Our vision is such that the animal should live in
freedom and dignity and they should get police law and state
protection. We need more members, more donors and more animal
welfare activists. At our society we are genuine, honest and
committed to the cause. We appeal to every citizen to come and
join us and see how we work. Many a times we receive telephone
calls to get strays driven out of their area. This does not go
with our ethics, but we can ensure that they are fed,
disinfected, sterilised and evenly distributed. However, for ill
animals, people may contact other concerned organisations or us.
In case of accidents, people should call us instead of just
driving past the suffering animal.
that sterilisation of dogs should be conducted on war footing.
People must reach out and help NGOs or individuals that are
working in this direction. People need to change their attitudes
towards animals. They must realize that both humans and animals
are an integral part of the ecosystem. They have a right to
share the earth in peace and harmony. As far as possible fresh
food should be handed out to the dogs, cats, etc. Overnight
leftovers could be given. People should not throw food wrapped
in plastic bags. The stray cows often die after consuming them
because polythene causes intestinal blockade.
the rules of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals,
dogs have to be killed by a "humane method". Moreover, dogs to
be killed should be only rabid and ferocious dogs, and not the
healthy ones. The MCD should first inform the voluntary
organisations. The dogs have to be put to sleep in front of a
veterinarian, and the killing must not be in public view, say
the rules. Police is supposed to help us and we also appeal to
them to be sympathetic towards the cause of animals. According
to MCD statistics, in three months about a hundred dogs and cats
are either sterilised or vaccinated, while at Circle of Animal
Lovers we treat approximately 200 dogs a month. We request every
person to spread the message that one should tolerate the
neighbourhood dog and give them support to live, and atleast
they should not be tortured. Most stray dogs get killed because
of the myth that all of them have rabies. Residents even add rat
poison in sweets and feed the dogs to "get rid of the nuisance".
Most stray dogs have skin diseases and are harmless. As a
precaution, we advise people to get the strays in their area
vaccinated at the earliest. Stray dogs are the unpaid guards of
a residential area and are extremely loyal. All they need is a
little affection and care. Mass adoptions, anti-rabies
injections and sterilisation can help the cause of the stray
interested in adopting animals, which are treated and cured at
our shelters are most welcome. This helps the animals to live a
better life, as there is no replacement for personal love and
care. We welcome help in any form be it money, food, medicine,
voluntary work, even gunny bags for the animals to sleep on or
newspaper, towels, bed sheets. Our Society is registered under
Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA), and Under Section
80G of the Income Tax Act.
