Alternative dogs festival, a stray dog festival meant to encourage adoption of stray dogs

This weekend an alternative dogs festival was organised in Vlaha Village, Romania. The festival was organised by several NGO’s with the purpose of encouraging people to adopt alternative dogs, which means dogs with disabilities or just stray dogs without owners.

Around 55 dogs paraded in a competition that meant to show their qualities and impress the audience. The organisers stated that dogs are usually left without owners due to the fact that they are either abandoned on the streets of the city or in villages or they run away due to car accidents.

Here are some pictures from the event

Video shows how homeless people are more giving than non-homeless people

 

This social experiment has tested normal everyday people and homeless people’s generosity. The experiment tested if people gave food from their own if someone really hungry asked for it. Filmed undercover the video shows how most people wouldn’t even share a bit of their food to someone hungry.

How about homeless people? A few homeless people were given some food or money and then somebody else came to ask for food and money to see if they would give anything away and that’s what they did. They shared what they had, probably the only food they would have that day, with a stranger.

don ritchie0_10153037389348206_1228631352_nDon Ritchie was a man like no other. He was literally saving lives. Living next to the Gap, in Sydney Australia Ritchie has rescued over 160 people from killing themselves, although his family claims that it was around 400 people.

The Gap, Australia is well known as a suicide spot. For almost 50 years, Don was approaching people that he saw were contemplating suicide. He would go and ask them with a smile on his face “Is there something I could do to help you?” According to his daughter, most people would turn around and that was all that they needed to change their minds.

Don Ritchie started to help people from the moment he moved into his new house, which is just 50 metres from the edge of the Gap. His daughter says that after rescuing people he used to bring them back to the house for tea or breakfast. According to smh.com the Natioanl Asutralia Day Council has stated “In a situation where most would turn a blind eye, Don has taken action … With such simple actions Don has saved an extraordinary number of lives”.
