Animals are precious creatures that enrich our lives in so many ways. Unfortunately, not everyone understands this fact and thus many animals - whether on the streets or in pet shops - face abuse. This is why we need to raise awareness on the importance of animal welfare, and these are nine good ways to start.
1. Adopt, Don’t Shop
Adopt a homeless cat or dog and give them a loving home away from the harsh conditions of the street. You can adopt them directly from the streets, from a shelter, or from someone who can’t take care of their pets anymore. To ensure their safety, take them to the vet and make sure they’re vaccinated and healthy.
Check out these adoption groups on Facebook or visit an animal shelter.
2. Feed Homeless Animals

If you see homeless animals in your area make sure to feed them. It doesn’t have to be fancy, these poor souls are always hungry and they’ll settle for whatever you have. It can be your leftovers or some inexpensive dry food that you can get from any pet shop. Just make sure the food is safe for them first.
Spread the word among friends, family, and coworkers on the importance of animal welfare and urge them to support local shelters as well.
8. Take Part in the TNR Initiative
Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) initiatives aim to neuter stray animals and release them in order to control populations. This can help reduce the number of homeless animals on the street and help us as a community take better care of them.
