The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

 

Johannesburg, South Africa (26 March 2020) – An ever-growing problem that shows no signs of decline in the city is that of stray dogs, more especially in the rural areas.

In 2011, IOL reported that there were over 230 000 stray dogs in Cape Town alone!

These animals (both cats and dogs) usually rely on humans to survive, whether that be through various feeding schemes or scraps left in the garbage. Removing the human element over the lockdown would cause these strays to suffer as well.

But one South African shared an inspiring idea that might help these forgotten and abandoned animals.

Nadia Singh shared a post to her Twitter and although the photos don’t seem to be from South Africa, it is still an inspirational idea to look after abandoned animals during lockdown!

“We are in quarantine but this was the most beautiful thing I saw today, and it deserves to be shared.”

In the photos, plastic bottles have been repurposed for food and water bowls for strays.

It is a simple idea but shows true kindness.

“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated” – Mahatma Gandhi
