Can you help us with dog and cat food?
I am an independent rescuer of local stray cats and dogs, currently housing 12 dogs, 30 cats and 4 kittens. Living in Philippines where spaying and neutering is not a common knowledge for everyone and dumping kittens is a norm. I have opened my home for these little creatures since 2015.
The very few rescue shelters available around th country has been over full capacity all year round. And over population for stray cats never ends. My cat colony didn't grow by reproduction as I have learned to get them fixed when I visited a shelter once. And from then on, I have decided to share my knowlsdge to other people. Luckily, I have been able to convince few of my neighbors to have their cats fix and bring some strays too.
I have also been feeding some strays outside my home by putting cat food in front of my gate. There are five cats that I see which regularly visits, only one I was able to touch.
Fast forward March 2020, I got out of my job when Covid19 reached our country. With so much to feed and an uncertain future, I have thought of abandoning all of them. It really breaks my heart to just think of it. But there are still kind people around the world that help us to stay afloat. Can you be one of them?
