Gangtok: Not all canines have the same luxury like their pet counterparts sitting beside their owners near heaters and wrapped in warm clothes in very cold weather conditions in places like Gangtok in Sikkim.

In fact, many street dogs of Gangtok are known to die every year due to freezing cold.

In a bid to save some of these stray dogs, a youth from Vajra in Gangtok, Jigme Dorjee Ladakhi, has pledged to provide warmth to the street dogs of Gangtok this winter season.
