A. Dear Client,

Pet owners cannot be fined for having their pets on lawns or in common areas, as these animals are considered integral to human lives. Understanding the rights of animals under Indian law is crucial when encountering cruelty, and when reporting such incidents to the police.

Key laws protecting animals include:
1. Section 428 of the Indian Penal Code, which imposes punishment for harming animals valued at ten rupees or more, with imprisonment up to two years, or a fine, or both.

A. Dear Client,

If your dog poses a danger, it is not sufficient to simply warn others to stay away; preventive measures must be taken. These may include using a muzzle to secure the dog's mouth, ensuring it cannot harm anyone. Taking responsible actions to mitigate potential risks is crucial, and owners should prioritize the safety of both the public and their pets.

If the feeding spots for cats were finalized as three in the AGM, it establishes a collective agreement that should be respected.

A. Dear client,

You may file a legal notice against your neighbour for the actions of their dog.

You can file the notice under the ambit of public nuisance. It means the unwarranted interference of enjoyment of personal property and your life. The dog owner must ensure no one in the society is affected by it.

Thank you
