The park has a wonderful sight of over 50 dogs running around, playing with citizens and eating the food they offer everyday.Situated in the commercial heart of the city, the Park gets crowded with vehicles and employees of nearby offices, during the day. But, as early as 7 AM many people come to feed the dogs as part of their daily routine. One such person, S Rabindran, has imbibed this habit over a period of 15 years.It all started when he, once, fed a stray puppy with milk, because her mother was incapable of feeding her. Since then, he visits the park at least four times a week, with bread, milk and biscuits for the 25 dogs that wait hungrily for him. After the death of his Golden Retriever, he is dedicated to feeding these dogs. A humble and honest man, he believes, When we are blessed by God to live healthily, it is our duty to share whatever we have.For their meaty, sumptuous breakfast, another hound of dogs wait for Kumkum Agarwals home made chicken biryani.

After all, she owned five resplendent beasts herself.On one of her usual visits, two years ago, a grey-brown mongrel was hit by a car, which resulted in an injured pelvic bone. She was caged for a long time, during recovery. So, she is too scared to run out in the open, like the other dogs. she said. Because of her adorable features, Kumkum christened her Pupsy and adopted her along with another ferocious beast " Brownie.
