Total 20 stray dogs now have their own Aadhaar card identification QR codes attached. On Saturday morning, the Govt officials assigned them the unique identification code outside the city Airport. These QR codes are strung around the neck of these dogs and one can get all the information about them after scanning it. This method will be very helpful in identifying a dog in a missing case.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) also got these dogs vaccinated outside terminal 1 of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, Sahar, as per Time of India.
Tagging dogs with Aadhaar Card QR codes was the idea of a Sion engineer, Akshay Ridlan. This initiative is titled ‘pawfriend.in’ to help both dogs and authorities in identifying them.
“He said that the team of ‘pawfriend.in’ started chasing the stray dogs to fix the QR code tags and to vaccinate them at 8.30 am on Saturday. He said that the codes can help reunite the dogs with their families if they are lost. In addition, it will also help BMC to maintain a database of the number of stray dogs in the city,” mentioned by livemint.
“A Bandra resident said that she was assigned the task of chasing the dogs. Sonia Shelar used to feed around 300 stray dogs every day in the city. After getting the dogs, a vet from BMC vaccinate them and then another pawfriend member put the QR codes around their neck,” reported TOI.
