Let’s get this straight, we don’t like animals – we LOVE them! They bring so much happiness to so many people every single day. They make us more compassionate, positive and loving individuals as a whole; you’ll never feel alone in this world if you have a pet by your side who loves you unconditionally!
In Egypt, people can be really cruel, and unfortunately, there’s a running nationwide campaign aiming to kill harmless and helpless stray animals in an attempt to decrease their population. Thousands have already died by being shot, poisoned, or left to suffer in shelters with a lifelong disease or physical defect, often dying alone.
