If you love things on fours, this is one visual treat you cannot miss.

The Welfare Of Stray Dogs and Cymroza Art Gallery are holding an exhibition of photographs titled Stray Snapshots by Rohan Mukerjee at the Cymroza Art Gallery between October 27 and November 1 between 10 am and 8 pm.

The exhibit, an endearing collection of photographs depicting strays and their chemistry with city habitats will be inaugurated by animal lovers Cyrus Broacha and Luke Kenny.

Making a difference
A WSD volunteer and photographer, Rohan Mukerjee has beautifully captured thirty one stray dogs and cats in their natural surroundings in various parts of India. He is currently pursing a course at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.

Says Rohan, “As a WSD volunteer, interacting with strays often gave me a peek into their private lives. This exhibition is a collection of images captured in Mumbai, Kolkata and

Santiniketan over the last two-three years. I dedicate this exhibition to all our four legged friends who are no longer around to brighten up our lives.”

The Welfare of Stray Dogs (WSD) is a NGO that pioneered the mass sterilisation and immunisation programme for stray dogs in Mumbai in 1989.

It has sterilised more than 34,000 stray dogs till date and impacted the lives of more than 95,000 through sterilisation, immunisation, on-site first-aid, health care and adoptions.

All proceeds from the sale of these photographs will be used for funding these activities.
