What’s your daily routine? How do you go about a typical day?
My day starts early in the morning. I cook for my husband and myself and then for my dogs. Since we are all strict vegetarians, I have a separate fridge and utensils for the dog feed. After finishing my household chores, I head out.From my home at Thoraipakkam to Perungudi and T Nagar to Adyar, I drive nothing less than 70 kilometers each day feeding my children on the road. I get the food packed in small packets and then go around feeding dogs.
Since 1994 till today, you have selflessly fed the dogs in the city. So what do you feed them?
I am feeding 350 dogs in the city today. 40 kilos of food is made every day. There are three places where we cook the food – 8 kilos at the shelter, 12 kilos at my residence and 20 kilos at a rented place in T Nagar. The food is rice with liver, for weaker dogs we increase the portion of liver for their betterment. A distributor now delivers the liver to all three locations. Every day, the food is prepared and distributed by lunch time.
