GUWAHATI, March 26 - The Paw Foundation, an NGO working for animals, has taken an initiative to feed stray animals of the city in the time of the ongoing lockdown.
Due to the lockdown, street animals are having a tough time finding food as they depend on daily markets and restaurants to feed on leftovers and throwaways.
The Paw Foundation had recently written a letter to Deputy Commissioner of Kamrup Metro Biswajit Pegu requesting him to issue feeder pass to them. Today, it was granted permission to give food to the street animals by strictly maintaining social distancing and following government instructions.
“The Foundation has already created a feeder group to help street animals in their own locality. There are 80 feeders across the city. The feeders have been asked to provide food only in the morning,” said Managing Trustee of the Foundation, Indira Amma.
“The street animals of Guwahati city will die of starvation if necessary steps are not taken immediately,” she added.
She added that the Foundation appreciates the lockdown move of the Central government and also saluted the way all have taken up the challenge to help citizens in this crisis period.
