Thousands of animals are slaughtered illegally every day in India, at places of unchecked cruelty, ranging from roadside shacks to air-conditioned establishments. Animals brought here, are caged, cut up and sold, in the most inhuman and unhygienic conditions possible. They are packed onto trucks, squashed together, their bones/wings broken, injuries and sickness plague them; not to mention the lack of food, water or any sort of rest and medical facilities. There are even instances when birds are butchered, while still alive. This form of illegal cruelty at shops, which do not even have basic licenses to operate as commercial establishments, let alone as slaughter houses.

FIAPO’s Stop Illegal Slaughter campaign (SIS) seeks to address these widespread illegal and unethical practices prevalent across the country. Piloted in Jaipur by the Jaipur Federation of Animal Protection Organisations (J-FAPO) to regulate illegal meat shops in the city, the tremendous success of the campaign has led to our expansion in 12 new cities which include Ahmedabad, Anantapur, Aurangabad, Bangalore, Bhubaneswar, Chennai, Dehradun, Delhi, Hyderabad, Indore, Mumbai and Raipur.

SIS seeks to work with activists, organisations, local bodies, food business regulators, residents’ associations, pollution control boards and health and nature clubs of different cities to break the chain of institutionalised cruelty in transport, housing and slaughter of all animals. The programme has brought to light, glaring violations of all rules pertaining to the operation of meat shops and the inhuman conditions in which animals are held.
