Chennai: Corporation of Chennai had earlier requested for concurrence of Chennai Metro Water Supply and Sewerage Board (CMWS & SB) for the treatment of Trade Effluent released from Pulianthope Slaughter House at 110 MLD STP at Kodungaiyur and permission for transportation of 20 KLD per day trade Effluent generated from the Slaughter House through tanker lorries to the STP at Kodungaiyur for treatment and disposal.

The CMWS&SB has accepted the same and has given the concurrence therein on 4.5.2015 and from 5.5.2015 no Trade Effluent from Pulianthope Slaughter House would be discharged outside the premises and will be sent to the Kodungaiyur.

The Effluence from Slaughter House is marked as Red category (Highly Polluting) & Pulianthope Slaughter House has not been treating the Effluence until recently. The Effluence was being let into open connecting the Canals.

The above were submitted by The Counsel for Corporation of Chennai during the NGT hearing on Unlicensed Slaughter House case filed byPeople For Cattle in India, (PFCI)

To add to existing Polluting & Environmental vows, Kodungaiyur will be affected much more when such dangerous Effluence from Puliyanthope Slaughter House are be treated & disposed.

Can this be stopped?

Rescued this little one who was locked inside a house for the past few days without food and water

On May 8th, we received a call seeking help in rescuing a dog named Akash who was locked inside a house by his owner in Thiruvotriyur near Chennai for the past few days. Animal lover, Priya Varshini, has been feeding Akash till then through the window. The owners went on a vacation and they left him behind to fend for himself. Akash was tied with a metal chain, inside the locked house.

Team PFCI rushed to the nearby police station and lodged a complaint. The police took three hours to decide on the matter and finally gave the go ahead to break the lock and release Akash. PFCI received the CSR copy from the police and with their help, rescued Akash.

Akash was checked by the vet and given enough food and water. Akash is now at foster care and will be up for adoption. The case registered with the police will be investigated once the owner returns.

We are not able to understand such recklessness on the part of the owners. Why do they even keep pets if they can’t look after them? They would certainly not have left their own child like they did to Akash. Why such a treatment is meted out to the poor animals with no fault of theirs? So many unanswered questions and like every time it’s the animals that suffer. When will this attitude change?

Foster parents needed: Rescued two Labradors from West Mambalam that were ill-treated by the owners

Chennai:

Male dog with swollen legs and skin infection

Male dog, Rocky, with swollen legs and skin infection

We need foster pet parents for two Labradors who were ill-treated by the owners in West Mambalam. The dogs were in such a poor condition that they had developed skin and fungal infections. They also had swollen legs, paws and face. We lodged a complaint to the Ashok Nagar Police. The owners had come to the station and agreed to hand over both the dogs to us for medical treatment and upkeep. The owners agreed to fund the treatment of the dogs. They wanted to take the dogs to Vepery but we refused as the dogs were in urgent need of medical attention. And the owners were insisting to treat them in Vepery making them walk everyday which would have caused the dogs a lot of pain and stress.

The dogs were duly treated and are boarded at a private vet. We might need a foster or an adopter soon. The owner will not spend much. The male, Rambo,  is not in good shape. His blood samples have been sent for testing. He has swelling on his face, paws and shoulders. He eats well and was given a shower and will need boarding for a while now till he recovers.

The female, Rocky, is healthy and doesn’t have any of the issues that Rambo has. She has been vaccinated, dewormed and showered. Now, both the fellows need to be given for fostering or adoption after 10 days or so. They are more than 10 years old and need special care. They will have to go together. They will not go back to the owner but we need to get them a home ASAP. The owner will be contributing for the treatment.

Counter Affidavit Filed by the Deputy Commissioner Health, Chennai

Here is the outcome of our last hearing at the National Green Tribunal (NGT) against unregistered and unlicensed slaughterhouses and meat shops in Chennai that was carried in Tamil language paper of The Hindu.

NGT warned the Chennai Corporation and other respondents for being inefficient
in implementing its order to ban unlicensed meat shops and slaughterhouses. The tribunal may also slap a fine against the respondents in the next hearing if they fail to file replies.

The NGT had passed an order banning unlicensed slaughterhouses and meat shops in Chennai on 28th November 2013. It had directed the respondents to take punitive action against such unlicensed slaughterhouses and meat shops. So far in the last several hearings respondent no. 1 Chennai Corporation has been giving contradictory statistical
data on unlicensed meat shops.

PFCII has been fighting relentlessly to stop the illegal slaughtering of the cattle. You can follow our NGT case here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.705555642805697.1073741850.677829325578329&type=3

Please sign this online petition to prevent animal cruelty

P7 3

Chennai, April 2015: In order to mark the significance of Animal cruelty month, PFCI, a registered NGO formed by Animal lovers to promote Animal welfare and prevent any form of Animal cruelty and abuse in India, launches an Online Petition in support of Animal welfare addressing the Indian Government Officials to do the needful in order to Prevent Animal Cruelty. The Officials include,

  • The President of India,
  • The Prime Minister of India,
  • Hon Chief Justice of India,
  • Union Law Minister,
  • Hon Chief Justice of Madras High Court &
  • Hon Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu,

The online petition appeals to the Government to establish a special Department of officials dedicated to ensure the effective implementation of the laws drafted for the welfare of Animals in our country. The Animal Cops to be on duty should have a comprehensive knowledge of all the laws pertaining to protection of Animals and be well-equipped to investigate and promptly act upon any potential threat to Animals or their exploitation. These officers will work collaboratively with the Police Department or the Animal Control Office or also with chosen local humane societies and animal shelters.

The causation behind the initiative is ignorance of Government officials towards the requests of Animal welfare activist for the ban of Animal abuse, Cattle trafficking, illegal slaughter of Animals etc. This is due to various reasons such as the officials’ lack of clarity to the extensive laws enforced for Animal welfare or sometimes even the religious or social restrictions faced by them that represses from strict enforcement of laws to prevent animal abuse.

The online petition that articulates the issue of enforcement of Animal laws in India would be a revolutionary change not only to strengthen the Rights of Animals, but also to empower the Animal welfare activists to protect the Animals with legal support.The petition will be addressed to the relevant Government delegates.

PFCI invites all Animal zealots to showcase their support by signing the online petition and intends that this petition shall be signed by at least 25,000 people within the span of one month and is hopeful of creating a combined effort of society as well as Government to save innocent animals from injustice and exploitation.

4 ill-treated Donkeys, now rescued

Two mother donkeys and two calves (1 male & 1 female) were abused and ill-treated by a person in Mylapore. PFCI received a complaint from Ms Sneha about the same.

On 28th Feb by 4 PM,PFCI investigated and found out that the four donkeys were never given proper care by the owner. The donkeys were made to stray during the day and later in the evening were tied in small dirty ropes on the roadside. They were not even properly fed let alone providing shelter. The calves were very weak and malnurished.

PFCI members rushed to the Mylapore Police  Station and lodged a complaint. After 4 hours, the SI agreed to file the complaint, gave a CSR & sent police officers to rescue the donkeys. By 8 pm after much difficulty, the members of PFCI carried the donkeys on a vehicle. By 10 pm, the donkeys were taken to Dr Shiranee’s PFA at Redhills, where they are now being fed and given proper shelter.

The owner of the donkeys is out of station and the neighbours told that he sells their milk at Rs 400 for few millilitres. Also there were rumors that he sells their blood to people saying that the blood has medicinal value. The police assured that they will do a thorough enquiry once the owner of the donkeys returns.
