Chandigarh:Failing to redress the stray dogs menace in the city, the Municipal Corporation (MC) is looking up to the residents and NGOs with some hope to help in seeing off the problem.
Taking up the issue, Mayor Asha Kumari Jaswal has appealed to the residents to pick up stray dogs and adopt them.
In this regard, she expressed her views about rescuing, vaccinating and sheltering stray dogs. Efforts of local residents and city-based NGOs would lead to many stray dogs find homes. She said that people should
become more conscious that stray dogs also require love and care, besides just having a shelter.
