Recently the renowned actress Sai Tamhankar attended an interesting and heart touching event. This year the students of Bombay Veterinary College presented Bravehearts-2017 in their annual fest Spandan, wherein they felicitated service dogs in various defense and home security departments, for their insurmountable service to our nation. Almost 30 dogs from across 18 departments (including RCF, CISF, BDDS, NDRF, Airport Customs, and Animal Angel Therapy Dogs) were felicitated and for the first time, six lifetime achievement awards were given to retired service dogs. Sai Tamhankar graced this event with her presence to support and appreciate these real super heroes. Since Sai is an animal lover, she didn’t give any second thought about attending this unique felicitation ceremony.
Today on the occasion of National pet day Sai shared her experience about this event, “This was the most unique felicitation I ever witnessed. It was a room full of utterly cute dogs; serving the society and country. So I met Sam, Don, Rex, and Bingo. It’s amazing how we claim to be the most intelligent species on this planet! These dogs serve the nation. And it gave me immense joy to be there. I also remembered my visit to the hospital exactly a decade back for a pet turtle that I had. My best wishes to Bombay Veterinary College and luck for the future vets!”
