LET’S NOT FORGET THEM
So many are in need…and needs are not being met…and the need for kindness and giving will only become more critical in the weeks and months ahead.
One of the sad consequences of the lockdown has been on not being able to do as much volunteer work for animals in need, which means those animals are even more desperate for loving homes.
It also means even worse suffering for stray animals on the streets.
Don’t worry. This isn’t one of those television commercials with the faces of sad dogs and cats who do very much need our help.
Rather, this is a plea to put some food out. Yes, place some food out or maybe leave a water bowl in your yard if you’re in an area with stray animals. They aren’t getting as much attention now with people locked inside their homes, and they could use a meal or a drink. If you think it’s a small thing, yes it is a small thing. But when you’re hungry or thirsty, no meal or bowl of water is small.
I’ve read some troubling news about street dogs and feral cats that are really in trouble. Each one of us can do something by giving food to an animal, tossing seeds to ducks, or feeding crows. They rely on the kindness of humans, so let’s be humane and help them.
Message: Please feed street animals. Keep out a water bowl. It is a crisis situation for them as well. Help them survive this phase. This too shall pass. We are in this together. All species.
If one person sees this and feeds a hungry animal, my day’s work is done.
