NGO to organise street play on stray, abandoned animals
A street play will be organised by Love N Care for Animals, an NGO, at College Street on Sunday to stop abuse of stray and abandoned animal. The play will be organised to mark an end of animal welfare fortnight.
Susmita Roy, a spokesman for the NGO, said during the fortnight, more than 750 stray dogs were given anti-rabbis vaccine in South 24-Parganas and South Kolkata.
Cattle camps were held at Sonamukhi and Gotolpur in South 24-Prganas where cattle owners gathered knowledge for better upkeep of animals. A horse camp was also organised at Hastings where abandoned horsed are being looked after by some local youth.Roy said because of such awareness, the number of stray dogs had gone down in the city.
Many groups and individuals were looking after stray dogs, giving them anti-rabbis vaccination and feeding them regularly. Interestingly, many school children take active part to look after stray dogs.
They raise their voice when someone beat them or throw hot water on them. She maintained that desertion of pet dogs had become a major problem in the city.
Large breed dogs like German Shepherd, Labrador, Golden Retriever and even Great Den are found abandoned. As these dogs cannot fight with stray dogs, they get seriously injured. She said intense campaign was required to stop such trend.
