Bringing change through compassion

A house is never lonely where a loving dog awaits‘ – Anonymous.

A loving hand caressing the neck, receiving a furry feeling, and mesmerized by expressions so soft, cute, and affectionate! That’s the feeling I got when I first touched a little puppy lying cold on the side of a road. Though not very confident near animals, I did that when pestered by a friend, and I may not have agreed then, but I felt good. And also extremely overwhelmed when the doggy tried to thank us for our gesture by jumping on us. Just a small act from our end, and it was so touched!

That is the love the dogs, cats, horses, cows, birds, and all animals can give us. Their expressions convey the warmth; no words can do! We all may not love animals or be comfortable around them – and that’s ok. However, what is not ok is to maltreat them. Throwing stones at them, or driving carelessly in a way that might hurt them, or just shooing them off rudely when they mean no harm – is nothing but uncivilized conduct.

With a very noble thought in mind and to protect animals from such inhuman acts from fellow humans, the Furever Friends Foundation started as an animal rescue organization circa ten years back. Since then, the organization has rescued and homed thousands of animals, including orphaned or abandoned pets and ill-treated or assaulted animals. They also carry out the required awareness programs, sterilizations and vaccination drives, adoption and fostering arrangement for these animals. Based in Chandigarh, it actively helps NGOs PAN India. The group pulled out all the stops to help not any animals but also police officials, street dog feeders, and less privileged families by arranging food, masks, and sanitizers during the pandemic times.

We at #Sterloc promote the idea of change and acceptance; what better way than to support and be with the foundation in their drive of “Bringing Change Through Compassion.”

Dear friends, I’d request you also to visit our respective sites and social media pages; and support them and us in our drives for #change in whatever way you can.

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.
