Four dogs and puppies guard the homeless
At the Sarai Kale Khan ISBT night shelter, women defecate in open. Toilets are either too less or not functioning at all. And when women go out to defecate, they are sometimes assaulted by auto and taxi drivers in the area. However, to tackle the problem, the inmates have adopted and trained stray dogs to guide the women at night and as and when needed, protect them too. “I am poor. I don’t have the money to file FIRs,” said Minakshi, an inmate. The shelter is now home to four stray dogs and several puppies.
