      I am writing to express my deep concern and disappointment regarding the lack of response from the Odisha government Animal helpline ( recently Launched by Honourable CM ) in a recent incident involving an injured stray dog. The dog, which had been paralyzed due to an accident, was in desperate need of assistance and immediate medical attention. The response was that the dog should be transferred to OUAT, and the Animal Helpline cannot do much about it. It raises questions about the practicality and purpose of launching such a service.
