Talk about Pet Transportation in India

Frankly speaking, Indian transport system for pets is unfriendly. We don’t consider pets as creatures like us humans. Our jobs, businesses and other life situations, make us migrate to different parts of the country. With the lower to negative levels of friendliness towards pets, moving our pets to our new home is often a struggle. Pet transportation in India by train or by bus is also not so convenient.

Many are therefore, forced to put up the pet for Adoption but just imagine what the pet has to go through while adjusting with the new pet parent? Moreover, how sure can we be that the new pet parent would take good care of your beloved pet? It means sacrifice when you don’t have a choice.

The flip side to Adoption is that it is a long drawn process and many pet parents who do not have the luxury of time don’t want to go the whole nine yards to complete the adoption process. Quite often this results in abandoning the pet. An abandoned pet unless rescued by a Pet Rescuer and handled carefully, usually suffers a gruelling end. This is painful for both the pet as well as the pet parent.

Pet Friendly Cabs for Local Petportation

Many pet parents cannot even afford a car for domestic pet transport. Although more than half of Indians own a car today, yet traveling long distances may either not be feasible or affordable. Pet friendly cabs which are nowadays available in many cities provide a silver lining. Pet transportation within the city these days is not much of a problem. However when it comes to moving to another city is where it is problematic.

After all, several nations across the world allow pets with leashes in public transport along with their companions. Pet transport in India is such a problem. Why would India lag behind!
