To protect stray dogs from the biting cold in the winter, an animal lover from Dhirenpara area of the city has taken an initiative to install pet zones in his locality.
Sahid Ahmed, a medical representative, has installed five such zones in the area.
“Arpana Saikia, a Gauhati High Court advocate, came forward and helped me install these pet zones for stray dogs. Altogether, Rs 20,000 were spent in installing them,” Sahid told Media
“Stray dogs live in tough conditions in the winters because they do not have designated spots to take shelter. So, this is a small step towards giving them relief from the cold,” he added.
