Facts about homeless dogs

Sadly, only about 4 million get the privilege of being adopted, therefore, because of obvious reasons, some of the remaining dogs have to euthanized.

The hungry dog

The World Animal Awareness society uploaded a video of a hungry dog going from house to house in Detroit with its empty food bowl in its mouth, begging for food.

That’s right! Humans aren’t the only ones who are capable of begging. After being subjected to neglect by its owners, this poor dog had no other choice but to behave this way.

The World Animal Awareness, which is a non-profit organization, is working hard to ensure that dogs are removed from the streets and provided a suitable environment to thrive.

This is one of the reasons they shared the video. The hoped more people could get involved and care for these animals.

This video is indeed a sad portrayal of how we reciprocate the love and loyalty we receive from 'man's best friend'.
