Heartwarming Moment Police Officer Shares Umbrella With Stray Dogs During Rainstorm

The sound of thunder and heavy rain is terrifying for most animals, especially stray animals who don’t have a warm spot in a cozy house. They’re stuck on the cold streets with nothing else other than heavy rains soaking in their fur coat. It’s a heartbreaking sight to see. Thankfully, there are still many good people who are willing to help these poor animals and give them shelter during rainstorms.

Over the past few days, heavy rains have flooded the streets of Kolkata, India, forcing humans and animals to seek shelter from the storm. A police officer named Constable Tarun Kumar Mandal was directing traffic at a major road on Saturday when he received some unexpected company. Two drenched stray dogs flocked to him and sat under his umbrella.

Looking at the shivering dogs, Mandal felt it was only natural for him to help them. He shared his large umbrella with them and continued to direct traffic. A passerby snapped a photo of this kind gesture and put it up on social media, where it went viral and captured everyone’s hearts.

Everyone was delighted to watch the cop perform his duty with his “unexpected companions”. Kolkata Police posted the picture on Twitter, crowning it, “Moment of the day”. And for the two grateful street dogs, they appeared to be happy after finding a place to relax during the storm. And the look on their faces says it all.

India is one of the highest stray populations in the world. A Dogs Love estimates about 35-40 million stray dogs exist in this country. There’s a long way to go to help these animals, but the Kolkata police rise beyond the call of duty to help animals in need or simply give them a place to rest.

Has the kindness of this officer moved you? You can always help strays by reaching out to your local animal shelter. There are a lot of animals who need your help and support. Share this post with your friends to help more animals in need.
