We are often told that feeding the strays is unwise. Maybe it is the idea that we are encouraging them to reproduce, or perhaps people just do not want hungry strays hanging in front of their house. Whatever it is, this is NOT the truth. In fact, feeding the street dogs might possible be a considerable alternative.
It must be reminded that the strays that live in the industrial areas often have no proper source of food apart from what is given to them by animal activists and animal shelter volunteers. If they are not fed, these dogs would be so desperate for food that they would devour bones, rubbish, stale food, and even stones.
That is why nourishing the strays might not be such a bad idea after all. Truth is, they have no cushy homes to find solace in. They don’t have anyone to love them like we
do. And they don’t have anyone to bring them to the vet when they’re sick or in pain. With all this in mind, we can’t bear to let them go without food as well, or to watch them die a slow and agonizing death without doing anything to help. Simply put, our goal is to allow the remaining dogs to live a better life for the rest of their days.
To spread awareness about what these innocent animals face on the streets, we organized project Rescue Me which was an article writing competition based on the lifes of stray animals and wildlife. We were able to get many entries and with this we hope we have done at least a little part in spreading awareness
