Personality: Often, we find it impossible to bring ourselves to put dogs back, after sterilising them for TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) initiatives. Some strays are street smart; they know when to hide, where to find food. But others are not so. It is so heartbreaking, when we return sterilised dogs, only to find them killed by a truck or a car.
Yet, we are faced with the dilemma of lack of space – our shelter is full; we have less space than ever, and it is impossible to take in more dogs.
Bishan – a shy and reserved boy, was taken in for sterilisation months ago. He was rescued after being found roaming in several areas – with no caretaker. We suspect he was abandoned. If we release him, he will have no one to look out for him. We fear gravely that he will be hit by a car, as he was seen running on several major roads.
He has been in our shelter ever since his surgery, but he is taking some time to warm up to us. We know that in a foster home environment, he will become better; and one day, find his loving family.
Even though TNR is a large part of our work, we will only release dogs back, if we know that they are safe. Every day, we face this struggle, having to juggle the lack of space and resources, while praying for a better tomorrow for the homeless dogs.
You can help Bishan. You can help foster, and give him a chance.
