One of the biggest issues in India is the stray dogs as many of them roam in the streets of the street looking for shelter and the food. Most of these dogs were either abandoned by the owners or had been born on the streets. Most of these tray dogs have some kind of an illness or a disability.
This campaign video was made by an organization based in Mumbai operating under the name “World For All Animal Care and Adoptions”. They made this video to show the hardships that a stray dog in India has to go through every day and is called “#AStreetDog’sLife”. The video since getting posted on YouTube has received over 7 million views and still counting. The video was taken with the help of a Go-Pro camera attached to a stray dog as it spends his day running through streets, getting abuse from the people and rummages through the trash.
While the video seems realistic, a lot of editing has been carried out based on the cruel scenes that these abandoned animals face on a daily basis.
The creators of the video wrote, “Disclaimer: No dogs were hurt in the making of this video. This video has been put together purely with video editing. The scenes only depict the various challenges a street dog faces every day in India. This video is meant to sensitize and change their current situation to a better one.”
