Although also in some countries, it has been achieved through a great process of cultivation and awareness raising in the care of domestic animals, to reduce the number of animals in the street; Such as Holland, a country that managed to be the first country without abandoned dogs in the world through a struggle that it faced since 1864.

And although it may seem a bit utopian, it is very possible from our individual means to have a great impact on the lives of homeless dogs. Today we will learn 8 easy and impactful ways to help a homeless dog:

Giving a stray dog ​​the opportunity is a decision that we will not regret, being able to provide them with the love and well-being they need is an indescribable emotion, as well as being rewarded with an unconditional friendship for the rest of their lives.

8. Educating family and friends about caring for animals

Perhaps we see it as one of the alternatives furthest from a great impact, however, we are wrong. Precisely Holland, the first country without stray dogs, realized that in order to be consistent in fulfilling that objective, it had to educate and make its inhabitants aware of the care and responsibility that is acquired when having a pet, because precisely the The problem of overcrowding and abandonment of the dogs, lay and still lies, in the unconsciousness of the irresponsible owners who abandon them adrift without any regrets or who make a business of them, and then throw sick and tired dog mothers out on the streets . This is the reason why educating family and friends about the care of animals is an alternative that, although it does not generate results in the short term, but does generate awareness that, thanks to this, many people today They continue to get up every day for the welfare of homeless animals.
