Orphaned Children Had No One to Turn To Until Stray Dogs Took Care of Them

An incredible 'tail' of love over adversity: Orphaned children of Bangladesh form families with stray dogs and feed them with what little they have in return for warmth, protection and friendship

But when photographer and animal rights activist Sam Edmonds visited the area in Bangladesh he found something remarkable.

A makeshift family had been formed between the youngsters and dogs who had drifted into the Robindra Shorbod park in Dhaka.

With whatever small change they earned - sometimes from scavenging for plastics to trade for small coins - the boys and girls fed their dogs and those who did not return to their tin shacks, stayed with the animals overnight, keeping warm.


This unconventional relationship has been made possible since the country's former practice of dog culling - where stray animals are inhumanely killed for fear of spreading rabies - has been made illegal as of November last year.

Animal welfare group Obhoyaronno controls the stray dog population through a Catch-Neuter-Vaccinate-Release program, says Bark Post. Life for stray dogs in Dhaka is difficult and, used to neglect and abuse, they grow timid and frightened.
