Target: Satish Cadaboms, celebrity dog breeder
Goal: Stop breeding dogs and promoting foreign breeds when local shelters are bursting with stray and abandoned animals needing homes.
A dog breeder continues to breed dogs and promote expensive foreign breeds when millions of stray dogs suffer on the streets and animal shelters are overcrowded. Celebrity dog breeder Satish Cadaboms, from Bengaluru, India, recently imported two Korean mastiff puppies spending the equivalent of $300,000 USD to purchase them.
This sends the harmful message that dogs are mere showpieces to be bought at high prices, imported from foreign countries and shown off, much like luxury cars. This is a highly destructive image to propagate and may encourage people to consider and treat these sentient beings as objects.
Meanwhile, countless dogs are abandoned by careless owners and end up in India’s overcrowded shelters desperate for a home, while strays roam the streets hungry and uncared for. Sign this petition urging Satish Cadabom to be a true dog lover and focus on helping India’s homeless dogs rather than importing, breeding and promoting new pets.
Dear Mr. Cadaboms,
You recently imported two Korean mastiff puppies. Unfortunately, this sends the detrimental message that dogs are mere luxury items to be imported and shown off. This could lead to people viewing and treating dogs as objects to be owned, rather than the sentient beings they are.
Meanwhile, the country is facing a serious dog overpopulation crisis, with several cities resorting to murdering strays in large quantities. Please focus on helping India’s homeless dogs before importing expensive breeds from abroad.
