Tamil Nadu government issued an order in 2005, According to it, dogs that have completed eight to nine years of service are eligible for retirement on medical invalidation. The dogs are maintained in a separate kennel on the same premises. But not all animals in government service enjoy such privileges, like those enjoyed by the Police Dogs. The horses used by the mounted police, for instance, do not receive any pension and are handed over to the People for Animal Shelter in Red Hills.
You see the mounted police doing the beat at Egmore.
