Dogs are our true friends. We love and care for them and they comfort and help us in daily life. Many dogs are even professionally trained to do human’s jobs. You can see police dogs, therapy dogs, rescue dogs, sled dogs, or guide dogs around you. They’re dedicated workers who always work hard to complete their tasks. Last week, I read an article of a guide dog who does not hesitate to jump into the subway tracks, facing an approaching train to rescue his owner- a blind man. They are adorable and brave, too.
Sadly, that’s not always the case. There are still people who treat their dogs cruelly and heartlessly. They intentionally harm their dogs. But love and kindness still exist everywhere. Many kind people rescue and help these poor dogs find forever families. They bring a happy ending for these dogs.
An animal protection NGO called Proyecto 4 Patas receives those mistreated animals and gives them a second chance at life. They heal them, give them love, and find them families that will take good care of them.
“We promote an attitude of respect towards all living animal species and support an ethical premise that they are sentient beings and not objects to be used by humans. We reject all kinds of animal exploitation including their use as clothing, food, entertainment, or for experimental purposes,” says the organization on their website.
