Weak Cruelty Penalties Cause Animal Suffering


People convicted of crimes against animals often get away with only paying a paltry Rs 50 fine – the highest penalty for a first offence under The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.

Dogs are poisoned, cows have been burned with acid, and countless other animals across India are abused every day – and the current penalties are often not enough to deter people who want to harm them.

India's most vulnerable beings are suffering because of weak penalties for cruelty to animals. Please join us in demanding stronger punishments for animal abusers.
