One of the biggest problems stray animals face during the monsoon season in our city is the absence of a roof over their head. To fight this predicament, actor Saqib Saleem, who is an avid animal lover, has undertaken an initiative to help stray dogs by providing them a temporary shelter during monsoons.

A source close to the actor says, “Last year, Saqib adopted a dog, and is obsessed with him. He is also very concerned about the safety of strays because during monsoons, the animals have no shelter.”

Saqib has joined hands with an NGO that works toward the welfare of stray animals, says the source, adding, “He will work towards their rescue and provide them meals as well. Saqib’s effort will also ensure they have a place to stay indoors.”

Talking about it, Saqib says, “I have a pet and I know how much they go through during this weather. I have also seen stray dogs and other animals suffering a lot and always wanted to do something for them. Finally, I decided to extend my support [to the cause]. A little initiative will help many strays. I did my bit and request all to help them in their own way.”
