Animal lover Mrs. Leela Bhatt lives in Dhobighat and is truly a dog messiah. While doing her daily rounds, she came across two beautiful dogs: frisky and friendly Seti and reserved, elegant Panda, who, unfortunately had been abandoned by their owner, near Ujyalo FM building, Lalitpur. “Seti” and “Panda” had been waiting for their owner to return not realizing that they had been abandoned. This heartless move had had a deep impact on Panda especially, as he became snappy and aggressive and became a deterrent to society. People’s general reaction was one of spite and fear and would throw stones at them, which did not solve the problem at all. Seeing them in such a state, Mrs. Bhatt immediately contacted Animal Nepal and we tried to coax them to come from their previous home to our office.
We need to realize that dogs are not objects to be abandoned when you get tired of them. It’s incomprehensible how people can raise puppies only to mistreat or abandon them.
Initially, animal lover Mrs Leela Bhatta tried to intervene by giving them food and love that they so sorely needed. After few months, Animal Nepal decided to rescue them. It was not easy, and even though Seti took to our company, Panda took his time and being so cruelly rejected by his owners had become very wary of humans. But, we are happy to share that Panda has gone through immense change and by giving him tender, loving care, he is part of our family and much happier and social. They are best friends with our previous buddies: “Bangi” and “Bobby”.
In our office time, they make themselves comfortable, occasionally coming up to get a pat from any one of us and quietly retreat to their favorite corners. Their lives have turned around for the good and we are glad that from being so aggressive, they have become so loving.
We are looking for loving homes for the both of them, after all, it’s not difficult to give a little love and time to these beautiful species. They are, after all, Man’s best friend!!
