How often have you seen homeless people and their pets? Have you ever wondered what could be done to help them? Here's some inspiration for you.
Lori and Shira Rich have made it their mission to spread kindness to the homeless and their pets. The desire to devote their time and resources to those who are less fortunate than they began in March 2012 with Shira's concern for the homeless pets and the people that care for them. The unconditional love is a two-way street, and so is the loyalty. For many of them it's the only unconditional love and loyalty they receive. The homeless people gain companionship and help them learn about responsibility.
Lori and Shira, true to their grassroots effort, started their nonprofit, Taking It To the Streets. Mother and daughter travel around Riverside, CA giving love, attention and dog treats to the stray dogs in their community. They also raise money to spay, neuter, vaccinate, microchip and provide stray dogs with the care and concern they need in order to enrich the lives of those in need while reducing the street dog population. According to the nice people at HooplaHa, who shared this video, sometimes the best solution to a problem isn't change, but to accept and care for the less fortunate, and the ones they love.
