Due to religious beliefs in Iran, dogs are considered unclean so they have different life and destiny. Even though a small portion of Iranian families own dog, but these dogs have amenities and life security.
On the contrary, the majority of dogs live in the streets, roadsides, and countryside, unfortunately. Most of them are killed due to road accidents or human violence. Hunger and multifarious diseases in winter, or extreme heat in summer are other causes of their death.
By increasing the population of such animals in Iran’s society, institutes and NGOs formed to protect these animals. These bashful men and groups take up sheltering, feeding, and paying the tremendous remedy costs of these animals.
