Recently a Mumbai based NGO ‘Save our Strays’ shared a photo of the special room created for the dogs in the house, on their Facebook page. Whenever you may have visited the Bombay House, you would find the stray dogs around the reception area. This is because Ratan Tata is very much fond of them. Once he saw the dogs getting drenched in Mumbai rains. Then he build a room where they could take comfort inside the Bombay House. The staff of the building also takes care of the dogs who take shelter over there. Tata has also invested in, which is a pet care portal.
