It’s a Doggy Dog Soup Kitchen

Dogs

In what might very well be a canine first, an all-dog soup kitchen that caters exclusively to dogs of the homeless and unemployed has opened its doors in Berlin, Germany. Yep, that’s right, if you don’t walk on all fours, you aren’t getting a measly morsel from the kind folks at Animal Board.

The soup kitchen receives much of its food through company sponsorships and has already proven vital to the Berlin community. Much like soup kitchens that are geared toward humans, Animal Board is reducing the number of hungry dogs one meal at time.

It’s no surprise that when bills are high and the economy isn’t exactly booming, money woes extend to all members of the family, including animal companions. The free services of the soup kitchen might just reduce the number of animals who are deserted, turned out, or given up by guardians for financial reasons. We’ll have to wait and see. But for now, we’re excited to see more compassionate individuals looking out for dogs. We give the kind folks at Animal Board two furry paws up.

    How wonderful that pets are being recognized for the loving family members they are. I’ve heard some are criticizing the shelter saying it should put efforts into human care. How sad that these people would begrudge ONE shelter that sees to the welfare of creatures who give so much comfort to those who have experienced great loss.

    I just sent a letter to the producer of 60 Minutes regarding the show on the veneration of two matadors. The show was extremely depressing as they showed the bulls with blood running down their backs from the lances. I told Jeff Fager the producer that we should toss him in the arena and we can cheer every time the bull jabs you! I wonder if I will get a response?

    This is so wonderful it’s almost bringing tears to my eyes Some animals are member of peoples families and those families love them and even if they fall on hard times it’s good to know that no members of the family will be dropped off at a pound or abandoned.

    What a great idea! This is something that should be done over here in Texas. Two paws up for Germany is right!! And big hugs from Texas!!

    This is so great! I was in London once and I saw a homeless man who gave his dog his only jacket to use as a bed. He said he couldn’t live in a government building because they don’t allow animals and he would never abandon his dog. Needless to say I bought him a meal and some dog food. I hope they are both doing OK now.
