India has seen a spate of attacks on animals since the past few months. In Dehradun, a mare called Shaktiman was attacked by a politician and the equine eventually died after losing one of its legs. In Mumbai, acid was thrown on a monkey. In Bangalore, a woman killed all the puppies of a lactating mother dog just because she was upset with the mother dog. In Delhi, someone stabbed dogs and puppies. In Chennai, we had a medical student who threw a dog from the terrace while his friend watched and recorded it. In Hyderabad, someone threw acid on a horse. 

Some months later, again in the city of Hyderabad, some children made a bonfire and threw small puppies inside them just for fun. A facebook video of a dog being flung in the air, for fun, went viral, the video was traced to Punjab. In kerala, people are seen beating up stray dogs to death. Horses are whipped pink and blue for joy rides in Mumbai. The wedding horses endure much torture. Chicken in crammed cages, with their heads upside down, are such a common sight that it many times. It is a scary world for animals. There is a proven link between abuse of animals and abuse of humans. The ones who abuse animals show more propensities towards committing crimes against their own species.

There is an urgent need to protect animals, for their good and for our good and more importantly so that we live in a peaceful, lovable world.

The first step towards the same is to make police and citizens aware of the laws that protect animals.

Humane Society International India works towards getting stronger animal welfare laws in place and also in empowering the citizen and the law enforcement agencies with adequate knowledge about the existing laws through workshops. Through the animal law training program, HSI/India intends to create a pool of legally trained animal welfare advocates and civic authorities like the police who champion thorough investigation of animal cruelty and animal abuse incidents as well as illegal wildlife trade issues. HSI/India . Through this training, sets the tone for all future programs and create greater sensitization towards animal welfare issues amongst the academic, civic and animal welfare community alike. In keeping with the audience we are speaking to, HSI/India has custom designed a syllabus for the program. Our facilitators include leading animal welfare activists from the country who have a thorough understanding of the animal laws in our country.

Please help us strengthen our cruelty response programme through more workshops by donating to this cause.
