The city of Soledad de Graciano Sanchez in Mexico is home to an expected 300,000 stray mutts. Life is extreme for these road hounds—they’re never certain where they will inspire sustenance to eat, and it very well may be troublesome for them to get help in the event that they’re injured. However at this point, Soledad de Graciano Sanchez is making life somewhat simpler for these little guys.
In January 2019, the city started two new projects to help road dogs. One of these projects is called ComeDog. This program is intended to help make it less demanding for puppies to discover nourishment.
The program is run mutually by Soledad de Graciano Sanchez’s City Hall and natives’ reaction assemble Respuesta Ciudadana. Volunteers put 15 PVC pipes on utility shafts all around the city.
They transformed these PVC pipes into food dispensers, and they filled the dispensers with dog food donated by good Samaritans. Volunteers regularly go out and refill the pipes. The program has already been a success—the city’s stray dogs are so excited when they come across one of these food dispensers!
Soledad de Graciano Sanchez has also started to program to help keep the city’s animals healthy, ‘Ambudog.’ Ambudog is Mexico’s first ambulance that’s used solely for caring for animals. Veterinarians working with Ambudog are offering free healthcare for both stray animals and pets. Some of the services provided including spaying and neutering and vaccinations.
