The Smart city project of Chennai earlier had the plans of building a special Parks for Pet animals but later was scrapped.Lalitha also said that, if pet areas are designed in parks it would allow the pet animals to breathe some fresh air or allotting a specific time for pet animals in the park would be a considerable help for the pet animals. It is to be noted that Hyderabad Corporation has built a dog park specially designated for dogs to spend time, but the similar plans in Chennai did not take off from the papers to the action after the proposal of plans.
Ideally, there should be a pet park in the city for the good of pet animals and beaches are comfortable to take pets and spend time as said by Rahul Sadagopan, a Chennai resident who is one of the many dog owners who take their pets to beach at weekends to provide a good time for their pets.
It is really a high time, the corporation looks onto this demand and take suitable actions for the good of the pet animals and make it comfortable for the pet owners to maintain their dogs.
