The first Crematorium for dogs in India


The city would soon have incinerator (crematorium) for dogs, bringing great relief to many dog owners in Chennai, who live in apartments and find it difficult to bury bodies of their beloved pets.


"Keeping this in mind, Madras Canine Club (MCC) has proposed to present incinerator either to municipal authorities or to any NGO," said MCC dounderpresident C V Sudarshan.

He further said that most of the bodies of dogs are dumped in garbage, where they rot in open or get pecked away by crows.


The incinerator costing nearly Rs 40 lakh would either be installed in Mylapore crematorium or handed over to Blue Cross, an NGO, which will maintain it. "Mayor has already given the permission to install the incinerator in Mylapore crematorium but we are waiting for Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board's consent," he added.


A fund has been also created to raise money for it. The facility would be made available free of cost for stray dogs.


Sudarshan said that nearly 7,000 dogs in the city get registered with Kennel Club of India, sole canine authority in India, and thus it is very important to have such facility.


This would be first of its kind as no other city in the country has incinerator.
