In Pictures: The Dog Slum Of Brazil

by | 6th, June 2010

TO the dog slum, or favela, of Caxias do Sul, Brazil, about 1,600 abandoned canines are chained to around 1,000 little dog houses. A farm? An art installation. A fat camp?

No, this is the dog slum run by So Ama, or Just Love, a dog charity.

Says Natasha Oselame, who runs the organisation’s PR:

“We started out with the naivety of wanting to change the world, and the project just kept getting bigger, so unfortunately this is all we have to offer them.”

Them being the dogs and around 200 cats. Of course, the PR is telling us this and showing the photos. So, give generously, if moved. You might argue that bed and baord is pretty high living for a dog.

Brazil’s North Korean community is not being offered special visiting rates – yet…
