About eight years ago, I added education to my animal welfare work. In a nut shell, what I do is knowledge sharing. It is what I do with my knowledge that helps and benefits animals, pets and pet owners.
We started a blog for Zeus Communications because we realized not everyone knew about stray animals. In fact, many people did not know stray animals exist, how many are actually out there and the sad, miserable lives they lead. Our blog aims to share with readers the reality, their courage and resilience.
There is a risk when working with stray animals. You never know when they will bite or attack; usually out of fear or pain, rather than aggression. We don’t blog about how we catch the animals, but believe me, they are not like your pets, who come when called!
The years of blood, sweat and tears have definitely been worth it. Our values and priorities are sometimes questioned when people ask why we release the strays back to the streets when they have recovered. Where would we house them? In a boarding cubicle for the rest of their lives? That’s what we call “prisoners of love”. What kind of a life is it? Besides, the money we spend boarding the dogs, could be put to better use helping more dogs with the provision of food and medical aid.
I would like to thank those who have helped and supported me along my journey, and to those who share my passion for animals, making Zeus Communications into what it has become today.
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
