Reena cannot remember ever having lived without animals. Her childhood home was a zoo with hens, ducks, goats, cows, and of course scores of dogs and cats. There were also wild creatures like snakes, mongoose, fox and peacocks.
As an adult in Mumbai, the city showed her a world where stray animals needed every ounce of wit and sinew to survive. She moved to Bangalore in 2006, where she writes about animals for children and hope’s to do a book on wildlife rescues. .
