The 4th edition of the biggest Pet Festival in the nation, Pet Fed 2017 Powered by Dogsee was held over the last two days at the NSIC Exhibition Complex, New Delhi. The paw-er rangers from across the city came together to have two days of super fun and activities with their human friends. The event also had a bunch of activities lined up for all the felines and the canines.


Pet’s Got Talent

This was the flagship event across the two days. While nearly all the dogs set the audience falling for them as they came up with tricks of their own, a few let their cuteness do the talking. Dr. Kunal, the judge for this stiffly competitive event, adjudged Sultan as the ultimate winner.


Security Dog Show

Alpha 11 demonstrated the skills of Khusi, the German Shepherd as she captivated the audience with her agile skills and sheer power in the simulated environment of a criminal trying to hurt her owner.

Pupper Parade

The dogs put their best foot forward, all four of them for that matter, and paraded to the music with their own ruffs and swag.

Off-Leash zone

This was the zone of continuous action as the furry friends tried the swings, the tunnels, and the slide-into-the-ball pool. The Zig Zag race was the main attention here, which saw the cute Casper come first followed by the swift Any.

Much like the Dark Knight who silently overlooks the city of Gotham in the dark recesses of the night, the volunteers of Friendicoes at Lady Shri Ram College care for the animal life on campus when nobody is looking. In talks with the volunteers, we discovered that this NGO not only feeds the “stray” animals but also looks after their immunisation and sanitation.

A first year volunteer, Khushi, explains that the dogs and cats on campus are fed twice a day- with a rotational duty list, the volunteers ensure that all dogs are given Pedigree, milk, bread and water according to their individual dietary requirements. In addition to the food, these animals are bathed at regular intervals and are made to wear collars- the best part, these collars come in a range of neon colours, the hues of pink and orange that complement their shiny coats perfectly.

A recent event showcases the concern and love the volunteers have for the dogs in LSR. A dog who gave birth has been given a small, shady area to make sure she is not disturbed by the footfall and the daily college chaos. Understanding that a new mother is overly protective of her pups, the volunteers have cut off the area ensuring the safety of both the students and the mother.

When asked why they chose to work with Friendicoes , when it had an additional requirement to be vaccinated for Rabies, a condition that scares off most students, the volunteers promptly answered- “for the love of animals”. To these brave students, the so called “stray” animals are not simply animals found on the street , but lives that deserve attention and protection. They firmly believe that it is every single individual’s responsibility to help and care for those who cannot fend for themselves- animals and humans alike.

These courageous humanitarians are bold and conscientious, fulfilling their responsibility in every way possible. After all, it is the silent crusader who works tirelessly behind the scenes and saves the city, when the citizens are fast asleep, dreaming of a better tomorrow.
