Hundreds of flood affected domestic animals get food

People for Animal Welfare (PAW) Foundation–an organization of animal rights activists–has taken initiative to come to the aid of flood affected domestic animals in Chilmari upazila of Kurigram.

On Saturday, the organization distributed food for around 350 domestic animals owned by hundreds of families of the Master-para area near Dushmara police station in Chilmari. The next day, around 105 families received relief for their domestic animals at Chilmari port area, according to a press release.

With the help of a Veterinarian, Dr Abdul Hye, also, a Kurigram district livestock official, PAW foundation volunteers held emergency medical camps on the spot, and treated 35 sick cattle, and 19 sick goats.

This rainy season, the mighty Brahmaputra and Dharala Rivers swelled, and flooded nine upazilas marooning over 800,000 people. Although many people received some amount of government relief, same could not be said for the domestic animals.

PAW Founding Chairman Raqibul Haque Emil said: "The parliament passed the Animal Welfare Act 2019 this month. As a registered animal rights organization, like many in Bangladesh, it's our moral duty to come to the aid of animals."

He added: "Our goal is to set an example of coming to the aid of animals in despair, and send a message to the government that animals in danger deserve the same sympathy as any human."
