Justice for Dog Allegedly Punched and Kicked on Camera

Target: Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, Maharashtra, India

Goal: Enforce stricter animal cruelty laws and ensure justice for Tofu

A recent event at a pet clinic in Thane in the Indian state of Maharashtra has left many in utter disbelief. Two employees were reportedly caught on video assaulting a dog named Tofu, engaging in acts of violence that no creature should ever endure. Their alleged actions, raining punches and kicks on the helpless animal, spotlight the dire need for a conversation about the leniency of our current animal cruelty laws.

Further details unravel a disturbing scene where Tofu, a Chow Chow, faced reported blows to the face and back. This cruel spectacle allegedly occurred at Vetic Pet Clinic, capturing widespread attention and outrage. High-profile figures and the public alike have voiced their demand for accountability, highlighting a broader issue of systemic failures in protecting animals from such brutality.

This petition seeks not just to address the injustice reportedly faced by Tofu but also to catalyze a much-needed overhaul of our animal welfare legislation. Additionally, this case should serve as a wake-up call for the implementation of stricter animal cruelty laws, ensuring that such barbarity is met with severe consequences. Demand that those found responsible for this heinous act be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.


Dear Chief Minister Eknath Shinde,

The recent case of alleged animal abuse at Vetic Pet Clinic in Thane, where two staffers were reportedly recorded assaulting a dog named Tofu, has brought to light a significant gap in our legal system’s ability to protect animals. The video of the alleged attack has not only caused widespread outrage but also prompted questions about the effectiveness of our current animal cruelty laws.

It’s imperative to recognize that this incident is not isolated. Instead, it reflects a disturbing trend of violence against animals, suggesting an urgent need for legislative reform. The public’s reaction, including condemnation from notable personalities, underscores the collective demand for justice and more robust animal welfare protections.

We urge you to take immediate action by ensuring that the perpetrators are prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Furthermore, we call for the introduction of stricter animal cruelty legislation that truly deters such acts of violence, safeguarding the welfare of all animals in our state. Let Tofu’s case be the catalyst for meaningful change, demonstrating our society’s commitment to compassion and justice for all beings.
