Chennai Police Stations Helping Out Thirsty Animals

  • 12 Jun 2019

With the current hot weather in Chennai, 13 police stations have decided to do their bit and provide water bowls for the animals in the city. Almighty Animal Care Trust, a city-based animal rights and rescue organisation, has partnered with the Chennai police to distribute the water bowls.

The bright green water bowls, made of cement and lime, are durable and help keep the heat off. Sai Vignesh, Founder of Almighty Animal Care Trust, said, "Keeping water bowls is really important. I hope this encourages more people to keep water bowls".

In an interview with The News Minute, Sai Vignesh said, "Summer is a difficult time for animals- whether they are cows, dogs, cats or birds. Temperatures are rising and we carry water with us and are able to quench our thirst. However, animals don't (sic) won't be able to find a source and they can't even ask. Due to lack of access to water, they end up suffering and at times, die due to dehydration."

Sai Vignesh said that he spoke to the Deputy Commissioner of Police at the Flower Bazaar, P Aravindhan, who agreed and said there are more strays at the police stations especially at night.

"It's summer and the animals will find it difficult without water in the scorching heat. At night, we usually see dogs and a few cats straying into the police stations for shelter. So we accepted this initiative from the Animal Care team.

"Over the next few days, we will be distributing the water bowls to all police stations in the Flower Bazaar range. It would be helpful for these animals if they can just have a sip of water," said Aravindhan.
