Acts of Kindness: Feeding the Street Dogs

I believe the majority of real heroes are anonymous. The real heroes do their work out of conviction and love.

I spotted this lady and their bucket of food in one of my morning walks. She walked a short distance and then stop to feed a chucho, a street dog, she did several times until her bucket was empty. I asked her why and what she was feeding the chuchos. She simply said, it break my heart that nobody feeds them, so I collect the left overs at my house and feed a few dogs. Poor chuchos, it is not their fault, she continued.

What a wonderful way to show that if you really want a better world, just get out there and do what you can. If all of us did whatever little we can, we would certainly have a better world.

    Hay gente aquî en Los Angeles que adoptarían a un “chucho” callejero. Que bueno ver que a pesar de alguna mala situación económica, la gente se acuerde que existen menos afortunados en las calles. ∞

    Haciendo referencia al chucho callejero, encontré un link a un blog que tiene un poco de gesto gracioso pero también un peso de seriedad: http://mujersalvadorena.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/el-hambre-tiene-cara-de-chucho/

        Thank you Rudy! I would love to meet her and share ideas as to how we can start to work in this village to make a positive difference. We have just rescued pups from the entrance to this village (by the factory) so our work is already very close. Thanks for the reply x
