Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation on Friday rescued around 30 high-breed dogs, rabbits, a Persian cat, 19 hens and a few exotic birds from a scrap depot in Tellapur Huda Colony where they were being maintained temporarily by Ramgopal Reddy, a watchman.

People for Animals filed a complaint at RC Puram police station against the watchman.

 

“Mr Reddy, who works as a watchman at a farmhouse, was keeping high-breed dogs at a scrap depot for a year now and these animals were kept in totally unhygienic conditions, without any protection from heat or cold,” a police official said. “They were kept in congested cages and their feeding bowls were kept in a congested place. There was foul smell all around. Some were even chained.”

A case has been registered under Section (A) of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.

“We came to know about this from some animal lovers in Huda Colony of Nallagandla,” said Mr Joshi from People for Animals. “When we went to check, we found all those animals in pathetic and unhygienic conditions. Then, with the help of police and a GHMC team, we rescued them and shifted them to our emergency rescue home.”

 

According to PFA, the rescued animals would now be given up for adoption once they recover. Some of the rescued dogs included German Shepherds, Labradors and Pomeranians. There were also rabbits, hens and cocks, pigeons and other exotic birds like cockatiel.
