A collection of stray dog photographs shot in both India and Cuba.

After visiting India in 2007 I noticed that it seemed like there were more stray dogs than the people living there. When I last looked at magazines of India it was all fascinating photographs of the people, culture and the architecture. However the lowest caste on the Totem pole I found were the dogs, hence the term, “Being treated like a dog”.

Not just India, but all over the world, dogs and cats roam the streets surviving on the rubbish that humans leave behind. I’ve witnessed stray dogs being fed and cared for, some being abused, some very sick and some eat what looks like food, but isn’t, because its all they can find. They are invisible.

It’s says so much that we as a humans treat our fellow earth-mates with disrespect and as a means to an end.
This post is dedicated to all creatures sick, abused, neglected & caged, in essence been given a tough ride by humanity.
