1: Special thanks to The Humane Society Of Williamson County for letting me ask questions, take pictures, and take booklets.
2: In Iraq, many stray dogs are injured by Iraqi soldiers. the dogs live in packs of 5-20 dogs. A famous dog that was injured is named Nubs. He was a stray for along time until he meet Brian Dennis. Brian is an American marine that found Nubs with his ears cut off. Learn more about this in his book, A True Story About A Mutt, A Marine, And A Miracle | Iraq- Nubs
3: Greece | The stray dogs in Greece are lucky to be alive, because many animals in Greece are killed by food poisoning. Many other countries poison meats too, but Greece is highly known for their food poisoning.
4: The stray animals in Morocco aren't tamed, so to prevent the animals from biting Morocco's residents, they kill the animals. | Morocco
5: In Bagdad, many animals are poisoned so the stray animals won't hurt the residents.The animals will die within 15 minutes. | Bagdad
6: Many dogs in Panama aren't fed well, because of the overpop- ulation of dogs there. | Panama
7: The stray cats in Kuwait are either picked up and put in a shelter, get put down, or die of food poisoning. | Kuwait
8: North Bergen, New Jersey | Many dogs in North Bergen are getting dumped in North Bergen's woods.There are tons of dogs there now
9: In Ukraine some unwanted dogs were found in a basement.A small group feeds them scraps.The reason why they don't take them home is because they don't have a lot of money.Sadly not all dogs in Ukraine live this life.If a stray is found in Ukraine,they are usually electrocuted or poisoned so they die painfully and slowly.
10: In Sofia about 9,500 dogs are strays. The population of strays there grow about 1,000 a year.the reason for the so many strays is because there are no shelters in Sofia. This year the city of Sofia is putting in 11 shelters. | Sofia, Bulgaria
11: In Puerto Rico there are many strays, because nobody wants to spend money on shelters or spaying and neutering so the strays are multiplying. | Puerto Rico
12: In China some people believe that if you kill all the strays, then all the rabies will be gone.People have started killing strays with poison. | China
14: Part 2 What I learned
15: I learned that no-kill shelters love animals and will go through anything for them. | No-Kill Shelters
16: Traditional shelters see that the Earth is overpopulated with animals. They love animals as much as everyone else, but they see that we have too many animals that aren't being adopted. | Traditional Shelters
17: I noticed that both have many animals to take care of and that it can be hard at times. They both have to follow their budget too.But with tons of donations it makes it so much easier.You can donate anything that would help to any shelter. | What I Noticed
18: What Both Had | Both had... -A temporary home for every animal -plenty of food for each one -A bed for every animal -People to love on them
19: ...and both shelters give them that chance. | Every animal deserves a chance...
20: Both animal shelters love every animal and so do I!!!
21: I learned so much!!! I wish best luck to every shelter animal!
