Dog Breeder did not give papers

Pet shop with the name PETZONE is run by Dhaval Parmar in Vadodara at 3, Krishna Park, Near Tribhuvan Park, Near Khodiyar Dairy, Vasna Road, Vadodara, Gujarat. I bought a dog from him. He asked me if I need papers of the dog and the chip of this dog. I said yes and then he took additional Rs. 5,000/- for the papers and chip.
Now almost 2 years have gone by and he has not given me papers and not even the chip.
He does not even taken my calls nor reverts to my messages.

Such people who run such business and cheat their customers should be handled by the authorities properly.

Pet bird

Hello sir/madam
I'm living at thakurpukur in Kolkata. A family in our neighborhood runs the business of selling birds. A major issue is that the birds keep crying all day. A Macau keeps crying continuously the entire day and the noise is so loud that it disturbs. We can't release them as the birds are worth Rs.1.5L(approx). The voices are so painful and can't be ignored

Hope you take an immediate action

Cheating by dog breeder

So we purchased 2 dogs on 24th evening by 6:00 pm. They were handled to us by 2 drivers through a breeder. Both dogs ( 2.5 month old) came from Amritsar.The breeder gave us no physical card of their vaccination on that day though when we were asking before purchase he gave us photo of their vaccination cards. The dogs were good on 24th night . However 1 dog started vomiting the next day and the other dog was having constipation. We thought they aren’t able to digest pedigree. On 27th when both of them started doing vomiting , we took them to doctor . They were having fever , the doctor gave them injections . But still the condition was same. On 28th doctor told they are suffering from parvo and they were infected since 7days and he gave them injections saying they can’t be given drip since they have fever . From 29th onwards they were given drips twice daily and on 31st night one male dog expired.Doctors made us clear that these dogs haven’t been vaccinated otherwise situation wouldn’t be this worse .Since the incubation period of parvo is 7 days , and they showed severe symptoms from 3rd day itself , it is a direct case of fraud with us , even the doctors claim they were infected from before. The breeder took in all 43000 rupees from us and now he has stopped answering our calls or responding to our messages. Please help me get my money back that was taken through deceit. The name of dog breeder is ‘Guru Singh Randhawa’

cheated and frauded by breeder

I bought a golden Retriever on 31 Dec 2020 from a breeder named Kapil and located Laxmi Nagar, a Geeta colony. So, he told us that puppy is healthy and heavy bone and champion breed and after 3 months my puppy had a fracture(right-front handleg) and today (28.5.2020) got another fracture ( right back leg) also my veterinarian told me your dog whole bone structure is dull and she is not heavy bone breed. my puppy got sick most of the time. So I called the breeder and told him you cheated me and frauded me and told him to compensate me. so, he started abusing me, my family, my parents, sisters everyone and I said very politely I'll file a complaint against you or will tell the whole this incident where he registered my doggy. then he said confidentially "chute** jo krna hai krle darta ni m kissi se". and disconnected. I called the club named the K9 club and told him the whole incident and they said WhatsApp me the puppy videos and later on said I'll call you at 6 pm, and will help you out for sure. so they didn't call me moreover I called the club 4 times and they didn't respond. Tell me what I should do.

mistreatment of dog

I am Pompy and I stay in Kolkata. I am a mother of a 4.5 months old Labrador. We call a veterinary doctor at home for routine check up. My baby was in a playful mood when the doctor visited and during check up he slapped by baby 2 times so hard that my baby was sitting silently in shocked for few minutes, I don't think this is the way a dog should be treated.When I asked the doctor why he did this, he said that this is the way he controls them. I would like to file a complaint against the doctor and would like immediate action to be taken against him. Name of the Doctor- Uday Saha Regd- 2088

Pet breeder selling diseased puppies

I used online forum to find a pet shop to adopt a puppy in Bangalore. I found a legitimate pet shop on which had many ads for selling small puppies. I contacted the shop owner and went there. He made a very promising speech about the puppies and their health conditions and sold us one nice puppy. We believed the shop owner as he had legitimate certificate. After we took the puppy home he did not eat anything except cerelac and we complained about his health to the owner but he said that it is normal for first few days. After few days we tried giving him other dog food but he did not eat that also and we again called the owner about this. Each time he gave us different solution of which none worked. After few more days, the dog started showing some health issues so we took him to the doctor. Doctor immediately told us that the dog is suffering from a deadly viral disease called distemper which is only transferred from other animals. The incubation period for this disease is more than 2-3 weeks which means the dog don't show symptoms until 2-3 weeks later. This means he was carrying this deadly virus from other pets when he was with his owner. Also, we did not take the dog out of our house so he did not come in contact with any animal. I tried to explain all these things to the owner and he refused to accept his mistake and did not compensate for anything. Now the situation is that there is a high probability that dog is going to die because of this or if he survives, he won't have long life and there is no cure for this. We had lot of mental and financial suffering. There is a possibility that other buyers can also suffer as this dog was in contact with other pets which were offered for sell. This owner is spreading diseases to other animals indirectly. It's my duty to inform as many people as possible about this situation.
Breeder contact information is as follows

Torturing dog in society

This is regarding some challenge facing in our society about Stray Dog. 2 dogs stays (born and brought up) in society since from 2011 (when construction of the building was going on), till date. Now some residence don't like these stray dog in our area / society and they ask or pressurised security guards to remove them from society and security guards obeys their order due to fear of their job. As human being and animal lover, I oppose this cruel act. But strange no one support me in this. Fear is, some day they will deport or kill them. These dogs are not aggressive but if security guard torture them like this then definitely they will.

For this, I was visited Rabale police Station and as per their suggestion I am writing this to you.

On 2nd Oct 2017 already other 1 Stray dog (not anyone from above two) killed in our society premises by ran over the car, which I can't legally complaint due to lack of evidence and proof but security guard told me this incident.

Kindly suggest, legal procedure / process to protect stray dogs or kindly legally deport them at safe place where they can stay peacefully.
