India and Indians have had a historic relationship with street dogs which even finds a mention in various archaeological texts. This finds reflection in central legislation that requires sterilisation as a means of dog population management. However, in recent times, this progressive and compassionate “no-kill” position has come under threat with a number of courts hearing petitions for killing of dogs or otherwise the provision of removing and displacing them; both leading to acts of unmitigated cruelty.
At present, the critical question – whether culling of street dogs should be legal, is pending before the Supreme Court of India. FIAPO has risen to the occasion and along with the best legal minds in the country is continuously defending our four legged friends across the nation. We are bringing critical data and information to the knowledge of the court and ensuring that there are no developments inimical to the interests of dogs.
Protecting our street dogs from cruel killing and displacement is a massive responsibility and we can only fulfil it with your support. Support the campaign- Donate to protect our street dogs.
