There are more homeless dogs in the the world than could possibly be counted. And many countries don’t have any shelter or animal control system to deal with them. However, in some places, many of these dogs are taken care of and well-fed. India is a prime example: there an organization called Animal Aid Unlimited is volunteer organization committed to helping animals in need. And they have their hands full.
India only has three animal shelters, and millions of dogs. That is why finding an adoptive home for every dog is almost impossible. One of the dogs that Animal Aid Unlimited did help had been discovered in a trash den, sliced by glass. As if that wasn’t sad enough, when they started to treat her they discovered that the dog was not alone. She was the mother of an entire litter of homeless puppies!
The volunteers not only fed the mother dog, but they also cleaned up the trash den she and the puppies had been living in. The dogs wre relocated and the environment is now much safer, for both the mother and her puppies. The volunteers are plan on spaying the mother dog. They will also spay and neuter the puppies when they are old enough.
The efforts of Animal Aid Unlimited show how much people can help animals even if they are not able to provide a home for the animals.
