India saw severe cases of animal cruelty in recent days. From throwing of a dog from third floor to setting pups ablaze are some of the examples.
So, to aware people and demanding stricter laws against animal cruelty, an international rally will be organized in 70 cities across the world, including 50 in India on September 18, Sunday.
The rally is being organized by India Unites for Animals (IUFA) along with HSI India to urge government to replace the weak existing Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 with the much-delayed new animal welfare bill.
The present fine on animal cruelty is just Rs 50 at maximum for which HSI India in partnership with People for Animals has launched the ‘#NoMore50’ campaign that calls for higher penalties for animal cruelty.
Nonetheless, the rally will be organized in total of 70 cities including 50 in India, 10 in United States and 5 in Australia.
To make the rally a great success, IUFA expects thousands of people in India and abroad to march in solidarity against the growing cases of extreme animal abuse.
