A city that takes care of its animals, tells a lot about itself. When the floods hit Chennai, volunteers were not only helping humans but many of them spent hours doing the back-breaking job of rescuing animals. Humans can call for help but what to do animals do? Humans can express their pain, but how do animals express their woes.? I had been on the field before Diwali to rescue both people and humans. Be it stray animals, pets or cattle, we rescued and fed as many as we could. During Diwali, we worked in the areas like Mogappair, Kelambakkam, Guduvanchery etc.
