Getting involved in a noble cause
“There are an estimated 40 million stray dogs, who
suffer from hunger and untreated diesese. Only too often they are shot, beaten to death or gassed. Many people who own dogs are poor and can not
afford vets’ fees, so the major share of our treatments are done free of charge.Most dogs live on the streets, most every day we have to find dogs in an appalling state.”
