It’s a Doggy Dog Soup Kitchen

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.
