Re: Helping out
Posted by Lynne on April 3, 2020, 10:51 pm, in reply to "Helping out
Thanks to the generous donations of a friend who lives elsewhere in town, nearly every hungry dog and cat in my neighborhood is fed some form of kibble because the food they get at home is usually tortillas and a few table scraps. Some of these pets have figured out where I live and come by on a regular basis to dine. (One of them even moved in with me.) Others just wait patiently for a gringa to appear on their street with a bag of treats in hand.
As Julie and I learned when we set up "Cat Central" more than six years ago, you have to feed the animals yourself or give their owners small amounts of food every few days; put another way, if you donate a large bag of pet food, it is likely to be sold. This is also how America's "pet food bank" operated in the town center when she lived here.
At any rate, I hope that someone in every neighborhood makes sure that the domesticated animals have access to nutrition. Also the pigs! Thanks, Julie, for bringing this matter to everyone's attention.
