We all know that stray animals are always dependent on people and leftovers. This time the nation is in the lockdown and many are having a tough time fending for their daily needs.
Ensuring the welfare of stray animals, the Odisha government has recently sanctioned a budget of Rs 54 lakh to feed the strays across the state.
According to the report from Deccan Herald, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation has been decided to spend Rs 20,000 per day on stray animals. Apart from that, Cuttack, Berhampur, Rourkela, and, Sambalpur will get Rs 10,000 per day.
There were some rumors that dogs and cats are carriers of the pandemic. This led the animal lovers to become bitter towards strays. Later, this proved to be wrong. A new initiative was also imposed in Delhi for the care of stray dogs. This allowed the stray lovers to get a feeder pass to go out and feed the stray animals.
We can also contribute by leaving a bowl of water and some food for our dependents. Meanwhile, stay safe and stay inside.
