Started in The Memory of Her Dog, Chennai Woman Runs Food Bank to Feed 5000 Dogs Daily

In the memory of her beloved dog, Chennai’s Kirthana Raamsukaesh started Vetri’s Pet Food Bank to feed hungry stray dogs.

Located in Thiruvanmiyur, she runs a fully-equipped kitchen where her team prepares food for the street animals.

The bank distributes over 500 kg of food every day to about 5,000 stray cats and dogs through 56 registered feeders. It is said to be India’s first pet food bank.

Kirthana ensures that the meals are balanced and provide optimum nutrition to hungry stray animals who are left to fend for themselves. The food bank also provides dry food for animals.

Her team also conducts vaccination drives, rescue operations, medical interventions, and rehabilitation campaigns for stray animals.

Over time, Kirthana wants to expand her pet food bank to multiple cities and ensure no animal on the street goes hungry.

Watch how Kirthana started pet food bank to feed thousands of stray dogs in Chennai –
