Hungry Homeless Dogs Get Fed Even on Thanksgiving

Young volunteer preparing dog food in Florida

Homeless dogs abandoned throughout the country were fed by devoted rescuers. From Texas to Florida (at the Everglades and the Rock Pit quarry), dogs didn’t go hungry on Thanksgiving. While most families are with relatives and friends enjoying a Thanksgiving feast, many animal rescuers are out feeding stray dogs and cats who otherwise would go hungry.

Corridor Rescue in Houston and Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dog Project are just two of the groups who went out to make sure that at least some stray dogs got their Thanksgiving dinner. The dogs in the Rock Pit quarry area outside of Miami got turkey today.

Dogs in the Houston area (they call it the “Corridor of Cruelty”) were fed quality dog food. corridor-rescueThe group’s Facebook post says, “Thank you Orijen and Acana pet foods for helping feed our dogs through the Thanksgiving holiday. We know their bodies will benefit from the great nutrition you provide in each of your formulas. Your support continues to bless us!

The Redland group also posted on their Facebook page. “Very thankful to be able to help these abandoned dogs with the most amazing team.  Happy Thanksgiving!!

A few dogs were even saved on Thanksgiving. The dogs pictured below were rescued either on Thanksgiving Day or the day after Thanksgiving.

One might imagine that all the stray and homeless dogs across the country are very thankful that there are those who forego their own comfort to bring food and water to the hungry dogs.

Both groups have a place to donate or information about how to help them feed and care for the abandoned dogs on their respective Facebook pages.
