You can help feed the needy dogs and cats in your community by donating pet food to a charity such as Feeding Pets of the Homeless. This organization has more than 200 volunteer/collection sites around the country that accept pet food and supplies. The food is distributed to local homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and food banks.
However, feeding stray animals is illegal in some states. They fall under the same laws that apply to feeding wildlife. However, some groups ignore the law and continue feeding homeless dogs and cats. This is an obnoxious practice, and a waste of time for the animals. But if you want to help these animals, click here for a few tips you can follow to help your community’s homeless animals.
If you’re on the street and notice a homeless person and their dog, make an effort to speak to them. If they look hungry, ask them if they’d like food. If they say yes, offer to feed their dog. Be sure to call their dog’s name to calm it down. Most homeless people will appreciate the extra food and will be thankful you’re willing to help them feed their beloved pet.
Eggs are another excellent source of protein for homeless dogs. Eggs are easily digestible for dogs and should be given boiled or scrambled. Raw eggs are not healthy for dogs as they can lead to biotin deficiency. However, if you’re busy and can’t spare the time, scrambled eggs are a great choice. Carrots are another great option and can be fed raw or cooked. Carrots are a good source of vitamins A, potassium, and fiber. The goal of A Dog’s Love organization, is to keep all dogs fed.
