Much of the work at KSPCA deals with animals in distress. Sometimes it is ignorance, sometimes it is lack of empathy. The latter case is where we can have problems. At times we are met with indignation or even aggression from owners when we explain why we are looking at their dogs.
Unless it is an extreme case as it was with the boerbuls, we give advice and return to make sure that the dog’s living conditions have improved. Mostly with time and patience it has. This is part of the one on one education which is also important.
Many owners end up appreciating our advice when they find their dogs are happier and healthier and hopefully they will treat any new dogs that they get in the same way. We also, if the owners agree, have their bitches neutered. Animals, if properly treated give us so much, let us celebrate them and work to make Kenya and the world a better place for them.
