Dear Good Samaritans, meet Zippy and pup ZooZoo.

I found Zippy under the Padi flyover on the busy Jawaharlal Nehru Road (100 ft./Inner Ring Road), on Sunday, 18/11, frail and limping on three’s. She was hit by a car a few months ago and her front leg is amputated. Having mothered 5 pups with a few morsels from the odd passer-by and dodging the fast and furious, you can imagine life has been hard for Zippy. The lone pup she has left - ZooZoo (the others were picked up by people wanting to raise them) is normal and healthy.

Zippy is sweet and docile; she instantly befriended me as I called and fed her. She was really cooperative as I struggled repeatedly to to fit her and little ZooZoo (it wouldn't have been right to separate them) into cramped spaces in my backpack and scooter to take them to a vet clinic nearby. After reasoning in vain with wary auto drivers to take us, one finally took us for a hefty sum. Through our little journey together, Zippy lay quiet and scared, while the little one kept wanting to wriggle out.

Mother and pup are currently housed at Pet Plaza, No. 123, Inner Ring Road, Koyambedu, Chennai - 600107, opposite Vijayakanth Kalyana Mandapam. Zippy was described as dehydrated and malnourished, and needs to eat and rest for 10 days, until she is strong enough to be spayed - which she really needs. A bill of the charges given to me for Zippy and ZooZoo’s boarding for 10 days + vaccination + Zippy's sterilization amounts to Rs. 11,100.

Please do lend a helping hand for Zippy and ZooZoo - even a small contribution will go a long way. We owe it to these innocent creatures who have to deal with the frenetic pressures of the urban landscape we have created for ourselves.
