They are everywhere; they come in all sizes and colors, and they all have one thing in common: they are not wanted, not planned and not cared for. But, for us, they are the ones responsible for it.
Right from the start food is never enough for them, there is no warm place for them and there is never a good word for them. They are the proof of our incompetence, our indolence and nobody wants to be reminded constantly about their failure. So, they need to suffer for it!
There are two kind of unwanted puppies, those born on the streets and those thrown on the streets, sometimes before even opening their eyes (under 14 days of age). No matter how they end up on the streets, they are treated as plagues or threats to society. They are sick, dirty, full of fleas, tick or larvae; they are dragging their weak bodies, begging for food, making noise with their desperate cry for help, thus they make us feel disgusted, angry, sickened…but never compassionate.
