Stray dogs are a common sight in India, and their population is increasing at an alarming rate. India has an estimated 30 million stray dogs, which is one of the highest numbers in the world. These stray dogs pose a significant threat to public health and safety, with an estimated 20,000 people dying every year from rabies transmitted by stray dogs. In addition, stray dogs are often malnourished, injured, and exposed to harsh weather conditions. Building sheds for stray dogs can help address this problem, as it provides a safe and comfortable place for the dogs to sleep and helps prevent the spread of disease. However, the construction of such sheds requires funding, and the social costs associated with the problem need to be addressed.
