For the dogs. With the dogs.
We don't always get to pet the dogs that we feed, but we're building that relationship with them to hopefully gain their trust. A lot of dogs simply sleep where ever suits them, no place to call home.
Baggies of dog food are put together to prepare for hitting the streets of Haiti. We target a certain neighborhood and leave food for the strays there; this allows for us to build trust with them.
Haiti Street Dog Project
If we don't have dog food with us when we're out & about (dog food is VERY expensive in Haiti), we will share our table scraps with the strays. Sadly, Haitian dogs are more accustomed to garbage & scraps than they are to dog food. Most dogs in Haiti have never eaten actual dog food!
