Stir-Fried Pork and Celery; abandoned dogs — 7 Comments

  1. So sad about the abandonment of dogs. When I was in Positano one of the ladies told me about at least 6 abandoned dogs in the village who all year round lived from house to house. They visited restaurants where they knew they could be fed and the locals took care of them.

  2. I don’t know if it operates through out the Dordogne or just in the Dronne valley area but Phoenix looks after abandoned animals. I am sure you will find them through the following link . They may know of similar groups closer to you. I know exactly how you feel re abandoned/mal treated animals. It is a major problem here but at least we have the SPCA.

  3. Sorry but I did not read what you have written tonight as the subject matter is too upsetting. Anything to do with wrongful or harmful treatment of animals breaks my heart and we all have to do what we can to ease their plight. Every little helps !!

  4. Katie that is sooo sad. We live about 20 miles from the main city. Too frequently, cats are dropped off in the woods – abandoned. It is sickening. We have rescued 4 cats now, and still it continues. I just can not understand humans that would abandon their animals. Huge, bad karma to them!

  5. It happens here in our little town, very frequently. Luckily we have shelters that are not “kill shelters” where we can be assured that they will do their level best to find good homes for the abandoned animals. But, like you, I simply can’t imagine the mind set of someone who would simply abandon a dog.
    My own Cora was found wandering the streets and thanks to one of those good organizations, Smiley Dog Rescue, she came to make our lives even better. She is not only a beautiful big dog but a sweet and gentle and (mostly) obedient one, too. Who could possibly throw away such a treasure??? I will never understand it.

  6. Linda, I hope so, too…. sigh….
    Val, I’ve seen that, too. The dogs get to be very smart, handle the traffic and know where to get fed.
    Gill, I’ve heard of them. I think that’s who my neighbor was going to call. I think there is one near Bergerac. And she saw a van the other day that advertised picking up stray animals. Just have to track it down.
    manningroad, I find it very upsetting, too. And incomprehensible.
    Ina, I don’t either. Just a totally different mindset.
    Zoomie, and our Sedi came to us with a chewed off rope still around her neck and we had her for 11 years.
