There are so many homeless dogs on these islands, many are left by people who leave the island and can't take their pet with them, others are abandoned by hunters once they are deemed too old to be of use. And cats are also left to breed and become feral, living wherever they are able to find a few scraps of food.
It's sad and heartbreaking to see these defenseless animals left homeless. And it always seems to be up to a few kindhearted people to do their best to donate their time and money to relieve the situation.
