ITANAGAR, Apr 24: Continuing its efforts to care the stray animals, Caretakers, a voluntary organization, captured three stray dogs which needed immediate medical attention from Legi complex, Chimpu and DN College here on Wednesday under its 1st phase animal birth control-cum-vaccination.
These dogs after proper treatment under supervision of Govt veterinary hospital senior veterinary officer Dr. Rukbo were kept in its temporary shelter for post operation care. Interested family will be allowed to adopt them once they are fit by executing an adoption agreement or continue to live in the shelter. More than 20 dogs, puppies and cats have been given for adoption so far.
With stray animal becoming a menace, the Caretaker formed last year by a group of youths with empathy for animals in distress, took up adoption programmes despite a voluntary initiative because of involvement of huge expenditure. Building a permanent shelter at a suitable location and an ambulance for animal in distress are in agenda, Caretaker coordinator M. Danyi said in a release.
