These animals are lambs, goats, horses, donkeys, pet dogs, cats etc and this event was arranged to create awareness about them.
They said that animal shelter houses should be made in Pakistan for homeless cats and dogs as there was great shortage of animal houses in the country. They also said that animal hospitals should be build, veterinary points should be made in all small towns and villages where the villagers can get their pets cured easily and free of cost, free medicines should be provided, government veterinary hospitals should serve free of cost so that poor people can get their animals cured, hunting of animals should be strictly prohibited as it would diminish the precious species of animals.
They said that the blood fighting of bear and dog was still going on in the deras (residences) of feudal landlords in spite of restriction by the government. They demanded that wildlife agency should check it and get it stopped. They said that the health of animals was not very good in all zoos and proper food was not being provided to them due to which the animals, which were cause of beauty of parks, were being dyeing now.
Besides this, they said, the hunting of precious animals such as blackbuck, black sheep and others should be replaced by making sell points, so that animal lover can purchase them and provide good food and environment to them, tax on the medicine of animals should be removed so that poor man whose income depends upon animals can get better treatment of their pets.
