Problems, hope? Dogs....

Problems, hope? Dogs....

Postby Biota » 17 Jun 2015, 01:52

I have seen a lot of F'd up dogs lately, mostly from traps and ignorant idiots doing stupid things that hurt others. I am tired of it, so looking to figure out some meaningful and useful solutions.

I am hoping my friend will come sometime this week after 10 at night and we can try to capture some of these poor souls and work out a solution once they are in a safe place.

I have some great ideas that might possibly free these suffering animals without causing them a lot of stress. Would love ideas as well. Night is the best time to get them I think as people wont be around and its easier to get in while they are tired and we wont get hurt in the process. Im hoping to get some good work done this Wed-Fri during the night, but might have to do the weekend if the schedule doesnt allow.

here is one such dog that had its foot caught in a trap. its healed and someone nice has done the TNR route for this friendly pup. many are not as lucky :(


What do you guys do in areas where there is no official help or interest in the greater good of the animals? We cant just call a number here so its basically everyone/thing for his/her/its self. TNR enough? usually remove traps set by lazy "hunters as well, but that does little as there are so many. Education is always the answer, but it seems to fall on deaf ears, and even seems to offend many people when talking logic and basic human/animal rights :(

Anyway, there is at least one silly dog I have found a good way to save here this week, but requires a night visit, there must be better way in the long term though for more individuals.

One at a time, do what you can, that is my motto. Can't fix the world, but can fix this one dog's world.
Lo urgente no deja tiempo para lo importante. Mafalda.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

That's a pity bad things happen with homeless animals, but fortunately there are people that are always ready to help them. We can't take all the animals to our place, but if we can do something to help, let's do it!
