70-yr-old Kerala woman shelters over 60 stray dogs near roadside house

A 70-yr-old woman from Kerala has dedicated her life to end homelessness and suffering of stray dogs.

Rukminiamma has built a safe haven for stray dogs near her roadside house.

Rukminiamma lives in a small house in Kodimatha Kottayam with her daughter who works at a petrol pump.

Most of the stray canines Rukminiamma shelters are injured and handicapped.

On multiple occasions, she woke up to dogs being dropped at her doorstep.

Rukminiamma and her daughter run on a limited income but her love for dogs is unmatched.

As author Orhan Pamuk says in his book My name is Red, "Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen."
