The arrival of winter season prompted five girls from the Lady Shri Ram College to provide necessary help and care for the homeless dogs and puppies straying across the campus.
Five girls – Malavika Nambiar, Shriya Singh, Himanshi Yadav, Ynaiita Warjri, and Apoorva Gangwar, have just started a campaign called Campus Care for Animal Welfare (CCAW) with a mission to vaccinate, neuter and adopt stray dogs.
Identifying the issues created by scores of stray dogs in the campus, students vaccinated around seven dogs, adopted four dogs, and most importantly drew a feeding chart to feed the stray dogs on daily basis.
‘Working with dogs formally and informally for last few years’
- “We have all been working with dogs formally and informally for last few years, so this was not new to us. We started out helping the strays on our campus by feeding them, getting the ones with distemper treated, and others sterilized. Soon we realised that we could do it for other stray dogs around campus as well and started working for stray dogs in Amar Colony and other neighbouring areas,” said Nambiar, a BA (Hons), as reported by HT
- “Students in our college started having problems as the number of strays started going up. Not everyone is dog friendly, and those who are scared face issues. Also, these are college buildings at the end of the day. How many stray dogs can live here?” added Nambiar
- The girls also received assistance from Friendicoes, an NGO for animal welfare, in their mission to heal the stray dogs
- “We had started a group earlier as well but that could not work out as most seniors passed out of the college, and the group just kind of died after that. This time, we will ensure that this does not happen,” said one girl, Shriya Singh.
