For World Stray Animals Day, PETA India Will Give Away Free Water Bowls to Help Keep Community Animals Hydrated
Jammu – A giant “dog” mascot and members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India will give away free water bowls on Tuesday, the day before World Stray Animals Day.
Where: Bahu Plaza, Jammu
When: Tuesday, 3 April, 12 noon
“PETA India is encouraging everyone to make clean drinking water available to community dogs, cats, birds, and other animals this summer,” says PETA India’s Ayushi Sharma. “These animals endure so many hardships, but we can all show them a little kindness – including by adopting animal companions from the street or a shelter, rather than buying them from breeders or pet shops.”
Across India, animals struggle to survive on the streets. Many of them go hungry, are deliberately injured or killed, are hit by vehicles, or are abused in other ways. Countless others end up in animal shelters because there aren’t enough good homes for them all. Every time someone buys a dog or a cat from a breeder or a pet store, a homeless animal roaming the streets or waiting in an animal shelter loses a chance at finding a home.
PETA India – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way” – also encourages families to keep their animal companions cool indoors during hot summer days and never to leave them inside parked cars, where they can succumb to heatstroke within minutes.
