The actress and her family have adopted animals either from various organisations or after receiving SOS messages. All of Amyra’s six pets till date have been rescued and adopted by her. She currently has two dogs at her Khandala house and a cat at her Mumbai home. Ask her if she wants to re-home them, and she instantly replies, “I will never re-home any of my animals. I can take care of them, and there’s space for more.”
She is also determined to push for stricter laws against animal abuse. “A few years ago, a video of a man throwing a dog off a roof had gone viral. Though he was arrested after a lot of social media outrage, he walked free after paying a penalty of just Rs 500. We need stricter laws and harsher punishments, and that is what I am fighting for,” she signs off.
