The mother of actor, supermodel, and long-time PETA India supporter Muzamil Ibrahim recently saw a little kitten abandoned in a park. She immediately contacted PETA India and stayed with the animal until help arrived.
This kitten, who was struggling to survive, is now in need of a loving home. He has been dewormed, and PETA India will reimburse his initial vaccination costs. People interested in adopting him can contact our emergency response coordinator, Deepak Chaudhary, at [email protected].
Across India, communiy animals struggle to survive on the streets. Many starve to death or are injured, abused, or hit by vehicles. Countless others are left to languish in animal shelters because there aren’t enough good homes for them. Sterilising one female dog can prevent 67,000 births in six years, and sterilising one female cat can prevent 370,000 births in seven years. Sterilisation helps keep animals off the streets and out of shelters, and sterilised animals live longer, healthier lives and are less likely to roam, fight, or bite.
Recently, in a critical move to help curb the homeless-animal crisis, PETA India sterilised over 500 community cats in areas of Mumbai, which has extensive homeless-cat populations, through our programme in collaboration with the Bombay Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Youth Organisation in Defence of Animals. The cats also received vaccinations, treatment for injuries, and proof-of-sterilisation ear tags before being released back into their territories. PETA India encourages the public to adopt an animal from a shelter or the streets and always have their dogs and cats sterilised.
Countless animals in need of love, kindness, and shelter are living on the streets of India. You can help end their homelessness by offering one of them a wonderful home – pledge to adopt, not shop.
