Don’t abandon your pets, says Anushka

Panicked by several rumours and an irresponsible post from the municipal authorities, which was later removed, several pet parents are abandoning their animal friends, fearing that they play a role in transmitting the dreaded novel Coronavirus.

One pet owner even threw a Persian cat out of a window. In this scenario Anushka Sharma has voiced her concern over the threat that pets are facing in the current situation.

Anushka took to social media to post “It’s a humble request for all pet parents to not abandon their pets during these times of crisis. Please instead, take care of them and keep them safe with you. It’s inhuman to abandon them.”

Though there is no scientific study that proves that pets can transmit the virus, online chatter and rumour mongering has built up paranoia about this in society.

The actress is a strong animal rights activist and has constantly spoken up against cruelty and atrocities against animals. She is also reportedly working on an NGO for animals.
