Mysore/Mysuru: Two SJCE students, who are busy with online classes that the Institution is providing, have a reason to visit their campus every day even when the institution is shut. They come there to feed the hungry dogs.
As the educational institutions are closed for long time now, stray dogs which used to get food from the eateries in the SJCE campus and around the premises are starving with no students to feed them.
Sumukh Bharath and Manisha, 4th year students of Construction Technology and Management, SJCE, Mysuru, are making sure that their campus companions are not left hungry.
Speaking to SOM, Sumukh said: “There are about 30-35 dogs in the College campus. Since there is scarcity of food to them due to closure of College, we started to feed them from last week.”
Asked about their expenses, he said: “We require at least 7-8 kg of dog food at once. Initially, we did it ourselves, feeding them once in a week but as lockdown situation might continue and to keep our initiative going, we requested people to support us through social media and we got good response to continue.”
“We had planned for two times a week but with increasing number of contributors we are planning to feed them on alternate days till May end,” they added.
