Capable are accountable for the helpless and incapable, This is true for animals as well as all aspects of human life. If capable do not commit to help incapable then helpless are bound to get wounded and suffer. We held ourselves accountable and asked peers and friends to understand this accountability and started this journey to raise funds and resources and expertise and volunteers to address animal food insecurities.
Animal food insecurity is a fundamental issue that everyone is capable to relate. Countless strays are struggling for food and water and have their own ecosystem of problems which needs our attention. We need to start somewhere as a community together and identify with their problems and give them little enough attention so they do not suffer the wounds of our ignorance and lack of attention. We need to accept the responsibility so that incapable can depend on us.
We chose to address hunger and food insecurity of animals as it is easier for people to identify with this issue and people can come together in order to address this issue. An attentive community can address all sorts of problems and enable all required operations and hence this is more about people coming together and giving attention to these homeless animals. Hunger is the bait we are using to organize such a community willing to identify and address problems of homeless animals.
