Real leadership they say is by example. Seeing dogs during Sunday mass is not about the congregation taking them home alone, the father has adopted a few dogs as well. When he encourages you to give a dog a home and care for him, he is doing likewise already!
As prove of dogs’ high intelligent quotient, it is not surprising to see dogs who attend Sunday mass to show their loyalty at the church altar. They also move close to friendly people in the congregation for a belly rub and social interactions.
The house of God is a haven for the homeless. Strayed and abandoned canines across cities are forced to fend in a dangerous, harrowing, and desperate environment. They risk being killed by speeding cars, untreated illnesses, and forage in garbage, endure cold, and snow without shelter. Thousands of homeless dogs face treacherous, lonely existence without our help.
The priest is not limiting his stray dogs rescue to church; he is active on social media, especially on Facebook, to engage with a broader church community, encouraging them to invite people interested in housing a dog to do so. Already, the effort of father Joao in Gravata is yielding positive results. More people are aware of the despicable plight of strayed and abandoned dogs and are coming forward to help.
Rescue abandoned dogs is not the end of kindness; taking care of them is even more act of charity everyone should show. Father Joao Paulo didn’t just rescue the dogs; he also cares for them with food and medicals.
