Following PETA India’s Efforts, Many Indians Have Travelled From Ukraine to India With Their Animal Companions

Posted on by Erika Goyal

The Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying issued a memorandum relaxing import requirements for animal companions traveling to India with their guardians from Ukraine following PETA India’s appeal, and now many Indians are sharing their stories of a safe return to India with their animals, some newly rescued.

Here are some of the stories:

We’re grateful to the Modi government – especially Minister of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying Parshottam Rupala – for this compassionate decision, which has helped prevent the additional tragedy of separating animal companions from their guardians.

We also can’t thank Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways and Civil Aviation General Vijay Kumar Singh enough for his hard work in evacuating Indian nationals and their animals to safety and helping to ensure that families (including cats and dogs) are kept together in this time of crisis.

PETA India commends the brave Indians who have refused to abandon their animal companions during these difficult times.

Please join us in thanking the government for showing the world that India is an animal-loving nation.
