Puerto Rico's 'Catman' has never taken a day off in over 10 years to help the local strays
With all the turmoil in the world right now, this is a great reminder that there is still plenty of good left in humanity. (Scroll down for video)
Meet Glen Venezio, Puerto Rico's "Catman".
Glen feeds and takes care of over 250 cats, and some dogs, in his neighborhood in San Juan, Puerto Rico; with minimal donations.
Glen Venezio, originally from New Jersey and New York City (USA), has been living in San Juan, Puerto Rico since 2006. Shortly after his arrival there, he began doing his part to aid some of the estimated 1 million cats and dogs on the streets and beaches of the island.
He does a nightly feeding route for about 250 cats and some dogs, in a spirit of total sacrifice for these animals who have nothing and no one, never having missed one single night in 10 years.
He has also been working to spay/neuter the animals, in addition to aiding the police with cruelty cases, and various animal activist efforts, including a large role in staging successful battles against a planned monkey breeding farm (which would have imported and bred macaques for cruel experimentation), and a planned dolphinarium.
It is an uphill battle in Puerto Rico, where there is constant abandonment, many extreme cases of animal cruelty, and widespread indifference by the government and population to the situation.
Watch the video below:
Glen can not continue to do this work without the kind help of others.......... If you would like to help Glen by donating to his efforts, please contact him via Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/glenPR or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
