SOS thus far has had many instances where strays in dire condition were reported however no help was rendered on the spot.
Please know that SOS is NOT in the capacity to offer “immediate” assistance upon report posted in the website. Due to acute shortage of human and funding resources, it may take us days if not weeks to deploy necessary resources, if any, to the reported site. In many instances, the affected strays either went missing or too late to receive assistance due to prolonged suffering.
SOS earnestly implores all the good Samaritans to render immediate assistance when strays are spotted in dire condition. Simple gesture such as offering clean water, food or even to relocate the strays away from immediate danger is proven to be of great tangible help. Reporting to SOS (SOS offers spay, neuter) or circulating the news via media network around is only delaying the issue if NOT “hands off!”.
Please be mindful that the time lapse between the moment being spotted, time to narrate and report to the website and finally anticipating assistance could be tangibly utilized to save if not mitigate the pain of many needy strays in a realistic and fruitful manner.
