Soup Kitchen for Pets

In these hard times, it's nice to know that there are some people willing to do whatever it takes to keep families together, including those with pets. In Germany, Claudia Hollm became so upset that people were having to give up their pets for adoption that she decided to open up her own soup kitchen for pets.

The organization named Tiertafel (meaning "animal table") is Berlin's first soup kitchen for animals, and its success depends entirely on donations and volunteers. In 2008, Hollm told Reuters:
“Nowadays people underestimate dogs. They are incredibly important for those who lack social contact with other humans. Making sure dogs don’t go hungry is just as important as making sure that people don’t starve.”
