Great article Ben. What wonderful work this couple does! True there's still a lot of work to be done here, but my hope is as we make progress in the US we can start sending more and more support to other countries. I've worked in Africa, mostly the Congo Basin and the circumstances of the dogs in the urban areas broke my heart (in the forest with the tribes they were a bit better off). I'd bring flea/tick drops with me and feed any dog that I could approach. One dog I had been feeding ended up being hit by a car and when I got to her she was already gone and there were ticks pouring off her. I got a wheel barrow and buried her. Her dog buddies followed me (her Mom is in the photo), tried to wake her, and scratched at the dirt after I buried her. The locals thought I was crazy. It's encouraging to hear headway can be made with the locals and their outlook on dogs. The people are in such dire need themselves. It's such a tough and heart wrenching situation. Claudia and Stephen were able to save a couple of strays from Puerto Rico and they became much loved family members. Oh if only we could help them all!
