Anjali Sharma, who is endearingly called the “dog lady”.
A native of Delhi, Anjali came to Chennai over 23 years ago for work. A resident of Harrington Road then, she had seen several abandoned dogs die for want of a home and a shelter.
Realizing that it was futile looking for help, Anjali quit her job, rented a huge house in Red Hills and set up The Animal Society of Chennai in an enormous portion of the house. This section serves as an animal shelter, where around 100 dogs are currently kept.
These dogs picked up from the roads. They also include puppies and dogs that are lost and injured. Since then, feeding her domesticated dogs as well as the strays became the priority of her life.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) helps her accomplish this task.Address :
