Justice for Pet Dog Allegedly Punched in the Face During Grooming Session

Target: Eknath Shinde, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, India

Goal: Ensure legal action is taken against those responsible for the pet’s alleged mistreatment.

In a distressing turn of events, a video has surfaced that shows staff at the Vetic Pet Clinic near R Mall in Thane in the Indian state of Maharashtra reportedly mishandling a dog during what was supposed to be a grooming session. The footage, capturing the abuse of a Chow Chow, has ignited a firestorm of anger. In it, a uniformed employee is allegedly seen assaulting the pet without remorse. He reportedly delivers punches to the dog’s face and body, an apparent act of cruelty that cannot be unseen. As the animal barks in desperation, it manages to escape, highlighting the severe mistreatment it endured.

Further scrutiny of this incident reveals a broader issue of alleged neglect and abuse within the premises meant for care and grooming. Eyewitness accounts and online reviews echo a unanimous sentiment of horror and disdain towards the facility’s operations. Such testimonials reportedly paint a grim picture of a place that, rather than providing a safe haven for pets, subjects them to horrifying experiences. The community’s response has been one of overwhelming support for the victimized pet, with many calling for accountability and reform.

This incident not only sheds light on the alleged misconduct at the Vetic Pet Clinic but also raises questions about the oversight of pet grooming establishments in general. It is paramount that those allegedly responsible for such acts face the consequences of their actions to prevent future occurrences. It is crucial that our legal system responds to such allegations with the seriousness they warrant to ensure the safety and well-being of all pets in grooming facilities. Demand that the local prosecutor investigates and takes appropriate legal action against the individuals involved in the reported mistreatment of the Chow Chow.


Dear CM Eknath Shinde,

The recent incident at the Vetic Pet Clinic, where a pet dog was allegedly subjected to severe mistreatment by the staff, has shocked and appalled our community. A video, now widely circulated, apparently shows a distressing scene where a dog is repeatedly hit by a staff member during what should have been a routine grooming session. This reported act of cruelty has prompted public outcry and demands for justice, underscoring the urgent need for legal intervention.

Allegations of such nature cannot go unaddressed. The details emerging from witness accounts and digital evidence suggest a disturbing disregard for animal welfare within the walls of a facility trusted with the care of pets. This incident serves as a grim reminder of the potential vulnerabilities pets face in environments where their well-being should be guaranteed. It is imperative that a thorough investigation is conducted to not only hold those responsible accountable but also to implement measures that ensure such an incident never recurs.

We urge you to take swift and decisive action in response to these allegations. By doing so, you will send a clear message that animal cruelty is a serious offense that will not be tolerated. It is essential that we uphold the values of compassion and justice for all beings, regardless of their species. We look forward to seeing the necessary steps taken to address this grievance and to restore faith in the systems meant to protect our beloved pets.
