Animal Lovers from Mangaluru Get their ACT Together

What do our citizens do when their pets at home have a litter? What else than dump the ones they do not need by the sides of the road or in rare cases give them to others who may be interested in taking care of them?

Well, how many of our city-mates care to think as to what happens to those pets abandoned on the roads? Without being cared for, they invariably grow up in a hostile atmosphere and keep scrounging on the leftovers in the waste-bins.


Being in a fiercely competitive world of their own, they tend to be aggressive and violent, simply on the ‘survival-of-the-fittest’ principle.

These animals gradually get involved in incidents of attacks on pedestrians and school-going children on the streets. Ironically, it is the same citizens who dump the unwanted litter on the streets who later on make a big noise over the street dog menance. Who is to blame, asks an animal lover.

With this thought in mind, the city-based Animal Care Trust (ACT) rescues and takes care of the ailing and injured animals and birds, and picks the newborn pups and kittens dumped in dustbins.


The ACT is also engaged in many other animal welfare activities like conducting vaccination camps, adoption camps, awareness programmes on animal cruelty etc. However, it is obvious that the good work done by them is not adequately noticed and appreciated by the public.

Well, there could be many enthusiastic citizens who are interested in doing something about it but have no idea as to how to go about it. Here is an opportunity for such good-hearted persons to meet up.

  1. May (imaginary) God bless them!! Indian urban areas are full of stray dogs and cats. There is a need for some kind of regulation so pet owners don’t end up dumping puppies and kittens in open streets.

    Also, I encourage people to think beyond just pets. For every animal you see on the street, there are thousands who get dragged into shady buildings and slaughtered for ‘naalige chapala’. Cut down on your meat eating habits. If possible, switch to vegetarian diet and stop participating in animal holocaust.
