Labrador Retriever Left to Die Saved by Two Teenagers

Thursday, 3rd July, a Labrador Retriever dog was found in very bad condition in a colony near Shuttle Gate, Maligaon. The identity of the dog is unknown, but locals believe that the dog has been abandoned by its owner as it's a well-bred dog.

The local people showed no responsibility in giving it a medical treatment or even just evacuate it to a safe and hygienic place. The dog was residing in a swamp area where it could hide from human, as the dog appears to be brutally tortured by some people.

Two Young Men Rescues the Dog

Later the two young men, Gulshan Kumar and Sunil Basfore, found out about the condition of the dog and soon reached there to help them. Whereas the other people ignored the dog for it not being their responsibility to rescue it, the two young animal lovers started their mission of rescuing the poor dog and medicate it.

They found the telephone numbers of Animal Welfare Organization in Guwahati and contacted them for help in rescuing the dog, but the receiver simply refused by giving the excuse that their vehicle driver was off-duty and they can't do anything right now.

After getting the poor response from the responsible organizations they took it in their own hands and evacuated the dog to a relatively safer place where they could give it a medical treatment. They went to a veterinary store for the medicines, the vet after hearing about their noble deed gave them the medicine for the dog's treatment free of cost.

UPDATE 7th July 2014: The dog died because of a very serious condition and the lack of proper medication.

Irresponsible Govt. and Non Government organizations showed no response!

Animals condition here in Guwahati is pretty bad, animals like stray dogs, cows, goats and many others are treated cruelly and there's no organization taking actions against it. If you kill an animal here in Guwahati (or anywhere in India) there will be no one standing-up for animals right. It is illegal, but only in the papers, not applied at all! 

The government must set up a better animal welfare organization and should start giving it equal importance like any other orgs. for the welfare of human.

I love to personalize my PC and most importantly how all my folders are managed and sorted. Windows does provide great options for folder view settings in all its Window versions.

What if it doesn't save your preferences? Well, I face the problem and managed to fix it.
