Don’t con­demn stray an­i­mals, do some­thing to help in­stead

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS... -

In re­sponse to the let­ter ‘Worry about strays not pets’ I think I am speak­ing on be­half of so many an­i­mal lovers here in the UAE when I say that the reader has given a very bi­ased/un­ap­prised view of the an­i­mals, es­pe­cially strays here in UAE. Ba­si­cally the earth be­longs to all of us. Just the fact that we con­sider our­selves to be a more ad­vanced species (again this is de­bat­able) does not give us the right to elim­i­nate what­ever we think doesn’t con­form to our ide­olo­gies. This ap­plies to an­i­mals and plants alike. Why are stray an­i­mals be­ing treated like pests in this coun­try? Why not do some­thing about it and get them off the streets? Open your doors to th­ese souls. They will be thank­ful to you for giv­ing them a roof over their heads to keep them safe and food to keep them healthy. I was raised by par­ents who be­lieved in the value of all lives. We took in nu­mer­ous cats, dogs and an­i­mals of all species, in­jured, starv­ing, un­healthy and have nursed them back
