A puppy covered in tar rescued and treated by our team PFCI

Please pray for Thor, the baby boy covered in tar.

It was the midnight of June 22, we got a call from Asuntha that she had rescued a male dog who was fully covered with tar. We promised her that we would take the pup and assured the treatment ASAP.

The next morning, our team member Dinesh met Asuntha, picked the pup and rushed to our vet hospital. We fondly named the pup Thor (after the lightning god, Marvel comic character) and immediately admitted him.

The vets, handlers and Dinesh started cleaning up Thor. It was a Herculean task as the tar had hardened on Thor’s body. Thor is now under intensive care treatment and we are hoping that he would recover fast.

This is how Thor looked after the efforts, love and affection showered upon him by our team and vets.

Our Team PFCI thanks Asuntha for taking Thor home and for putting in great efforts to save him. She applied vegetable oil, gave him a nice massage, fed him and showered him lots of love.

Let’s pray for Thor’s speedy recovery and healthy life.

Foster parents needed urgently for a beautiful female Rottweiler

Chennai: This is an urgent adoption appeal. Also, we request people to think thoroughly before adopting pets. If they are not capable of handling pets and they think that they won’t be able to take care of the pet any more, at least have the courtesy to contact animal welfare organisation such as People for Cattle in India or any other before abandoning pets. It’s a shameful act to abandon pets on the streets. This is what happened to Rotty.

Mrs. Jaya informed the PFCI team that someone came in a car, dumped this beautiful female rottweiler on the street and fled.  Our team rushed to the spot and rescued her. She, named as Rotty for now, has undergone a health check and is boarded . Rotty is approximately 8-10 months old, active and healthy. She appears to be human friendly and understands basic commands.

How about adopting this gorgeous little one and adding some sunshine to your lives?

This is how horses we ride on for joy have to suffer

Chennai: On a scorching Saturday afternoon around 3 pm, PFCI team members witnessed a horse on the Besant Nagar beach being made to give joy rides to the visiting public on the seashore. The horse was beaten, pulled and kicked by the horse handlers. The horse was obviously dehydrated and tired because of exertion. The burning Sun only added to the poor horse’s agony. The horse looked weak, famished and dehydrated. The horses were handled by boys less than 18 years old and it was quite evident that the handlers were inexperienced.

The horse’s hind legs were swollen and needed immediate medical attention. PFCI members rushed to the police station and lodged a complaint against the horse owners and handlers. The complaint was based on various violations like,

1. Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act,
2. Performing Animals Acts, Rules and Registrations,
3. Indian Penal Code sections 428 and 429

The police registered the complaint and sent a squad to bring the horse that was abused to the police station. We organized an ambulance to send the horse to the Blue Cross of India shelter at Guindy.

The horse was in very bad health condition. It’s such a pity that the inexperienced horse owners and handlers abuse the horses. A single horse costs somewhere between Rs 50,000 and 70,000. The horses are to be fed quality food and feed per day per horse cost nothing less that Rs 100. Periodical medical help and monthly vaccination is a must which the horse owners seldom monitor.

The Horses on the beach are seldom taken good care. PFCI has rescued Horses from Cruel treatment in the past on 4 occasions,

1. 4th March, 2014 a Pony was rescued and case filed at Nungambakkam Police station
2. 28th November, 2014 a Horse was rescued and case filed at Bezant Nagar Police station
3. 11th December, 2014 a Horse was rescued and case filed at Egmore Police station.

4. 14th Feburary, 2014 2 Horses were rescued and case filed at Marina Police station.

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.
