Street Portraits: Faces of the Homeless

These are the faces of the homeless, condemned to a life of struggle by abandonment or the owner who does not spay or neuter their pet and keep it safely indoors. They live on the streets, searching for a small scrap or morsel to fill their empty stomachs wherever it may be found. Most people think of them as pests, failing to accept their own responsibility for the situation they’ve created and ignored. Most communities offer very inexpensive spay and neuter programs either through local animal services or non-profits; please don’t take on a pet if you can’t afford to care for it properly. And finally, if you are ready to share your life with a forever friend, don’t shop — adopt!

  1. Hello Earl,
    What a lovely, lovely series!
    I couldn’t agree more – taking on a pet is not to be decided on a whim, there’s great responsibility that comes along with it. And it’s so true that many animals are in shelters, waiting for a loving home…
    Thanks for sharing and bringing to our attention. TGIF 🙂
