CHENNAI:  To avoid infections borne from the monsoon floods that have enveloped Chennai, a boarding facility for dogs on the ECR organised a series of trips to Bengaluru. Shravan Krishnan, owner of Hotel for Dogs on ECR, says, “When we put up word about our road trip on social media, we got calls from pet owners who had never heard of us. They wanted to get their dogs on board for the ride.” Krishnan’s ‘hotel’ organised three vehicles to drive the dogs to a dry destination on Sarjapur Road in Bengaluru last Wednesday. “Most dogs are under stress when they travel, so having caretakers travel with them always helps,” he says.

With 30 dogs taken a week prior, another 15 hit the road last week. And an additional trip for the next batch of pooches will be planned if the weather calls for it. “The idea is to keep the dogs safe and dry for at least a week before the rains stop and we make a return trip,” says Shravan.

The calls have come in from areas across the city ranging up a low-lying Tambaram to more uptown areas like T Nagar and Nungambakkam.
