How to help dogs in Diwali? 

  1. Pledge to say no to crackers. Ask others too.
  2. Ask the naysayers to at least burst crackers in a limited and a centralized location so that animals can be kept off it during the fireworks.
  3. Take your dog for a walk during the day before the fireworks begin.
  4. Lower the windows to cease the aftermath of cracker bursts. Turn up the volume on the television or radio to help shield the noise.
  5. Ensure to reprimand/report anyone teasing stray animals. (No tying crackers to tails or hurling a live fire on an innocent animal. Read: All animals are innocent.)
  6. Help any animals on the road into your garden or garage and put food and water for them.
  7. Put posters in your society/school/college/office notice board to be kind to stray animals.
  8. Consult a veterinarian if your pets are showing acute discomfort or distress from loud noises or smoke.
  9. Keep a list of local NGO contacts/municipal boards/ vet(s) in case you find an injured animal in your locality or on the road. Keep a first-aid kit ready with you too.
  10. The loose hanging electricity cords used for decoration may tempt the dog as playthings and they run a risk of getting entangled or electrocuted. Keep them off reach from your pets.
  11. Lamps and candles should be kept out of a pet’s reach to avoid accidental fire or burns.
  12. Ensure that your pets are wearing identification tags with your contact information.
  13. Don’t leave your pets home alone.
  14. Wrap them in their favourite blanket to make them feel safe.

  2. Super post. It hurt me to see the condition several stray dogs were in last night. Not much of a happy Diwali for them! I was glad to see some of them taken indoors by a helpful security guard.
