Read­ers re­spond to let­ter about aban­doned dog

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

I would like to re­spond to the let­ter from Eve­lyn (‘How could peo­ple stand by and let stray dog suf­fer’, 7DAYS Let­ters, July 14) and would like to agree with you Eve­lyn an­i­mals do not seem to be im­por­tant here and peo­ple will just walk on past and not help. I res­cued a cat that was badly in­jured and took it to the vets and that was in a pub­lic area eas­ily seen and peo­ple just looked at it and walked on sadly the cat died like the lit­tle dog. Per­haps it could have been saved and had a chance to be re­homed if some­one had cared enough to help or look for him sooner. The an­i­mal wel­fare group try to help but just have too many to deal with at the minute and the pub­lic need to help. I per­son­ally could not walk away from an an­i­mal need­ing help. Thank you Eve­lyn for car­ing enough and show­ing com­pas­sion to­wards this lit­tle dog. An­i­mal lover Dubai Un­less a pro bono an­i­mal wel­fare ser­vice is set up, peo­ple will con­tinue to look away. Ge­orge, Dubai
