During our most recent trip to Cuba, Roberto and I were alarmed at the number of dogs roaming the streets in Havana and Pinar del Rio. It’s normal to see a few stray dogs in Havana, but this time there were dozens and dozens of stray dogs in just a few blocks. There were chihuahuas, pugs, poodles and other full breed dogs as well as mutts. Quietly starving on the sidewalks, we never heard them bark or whine. Some had tumours and open sores. Some were unable to move.
Can anything be done for these dogs? Is there such a thing as a Red Cross for dogs? If there is, I would like to help.
