A country’s moral progression and glory can be defined by how well its animals are treated. We are oblivious to the cries of animal victims because of their anonymity!
Pet abandonment has long-lasting effects on the animals involved as well as the surrounding neighbourhood. When left outside, abandoned dogs and cats, and other old animals are not only left to fend for themselves and risk suffering from hunger, dehydration, injury, and infections; but they are also scared and perplexed since their guardian has abandoned them alone in a strange location.
An animal shelter or dumping ground?
Being an animal shelter has its own share of costs. Even though our goal is to assist every frightened animal we come across, the reality is that although the number of animals we take care of grows every day, our space and funding are both perennially inadequate.
Each day, we find animals left at our doors, unwanted, aging, ill, disoriented, hostile, or troubled. Aside from lost and abandoned animals, the shelter also receives sick homeless animals, an odd bird, and anxious monkeys. Friendicoes are constantly bursting at the seams with more animals than there is space for, serving as both a shelter and a medical facility.
Our shelter staff frequently has an underappreciated job while juggling having enough space to hold all the animals, and developing our own programs that encourage people to be responsible and spay and neuter their animals. And the responsibility doesn’t end there; we also try to persuade people to look in animal shelters first when looking for a specific family pet by organizing pet adoptions.
Animal Rescue and more!
Despite our best efforts, animal shelters are only a temporary haven for stray animals until they can find a new home. This helps keep stray animals off the streets and prevents the spread of any possible animal diseases. And to continue our initiatives for animal welfare, all of our financial support comes from the public’s kind donations.
Their lives matter. #supportyourlocalshelter.
Everything in our society is a temporary possession, but we need to understand that animals aren’t inanimate objects. Rehoming is the best option for the welfare of the animals—not keeping them in a shelter!
