"Humanity's true moral test, its fundamental test…consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals." - Milan Kundera
In India, cruelty to animals is an offence and is punishable with a fine. While we think that it only affects the animals who are being ill-treated, you would be surprised to know animal abuse affects our environment, our living conditions, our children and of course, the planet we live on. And this is the belief that pet service NGO, People For Animals (PFA) works with as well.
Ms Priyanshu Jain established People For Animals (PFA) in Indore with the aim of protecting stray animals and also providing them a home. Recently, the organisation also conducted an awareness program in Indore.
With a network of 26 hospitals, 165 branches, and 2.5 lakh members; this NGO stands as India's largest animal welfare organisation. It not only provides shelters and ambulance services, but organises sterilisation programs, treatment camps and disaster rescue missions for animals. They even conduct education programs in schools, have filed cases against people who abused animals and have fought for animal rights in the Parliament.
On December 24, 2017, a music night was organised to raise funds for the treatment of animals and also make people aware of animal abuse.
At the event, PFA Indore also shared various case studies about how people ill-treat animals on the street. Mr Shailendra Singh, Secretary, Indore PFA, shared varied experiences and requested people that if they cannot save animals, they should definitely not harm them.
The organisation believes that animals have the right and they deserve to be treated well, regardless of whether they are useful to humans or not.
