Today, we would like to give you an update on the heartwarming mission undertaken by David Fernández, from Chile, who dedicates his time to saving neglected dogs found on the streets of Santiago. As you can imagine, the conditions of life for homeless animals are extremely poor, and it's only thanks to people like Fernández that they are given another chance at life, with good fortune finally smiling their way.

We have previously featured some amazing results of his hard work, which you can check out in our previous Pictolic post, where we gave more detail about David's efforts and the general situation of stray dogs in Chile.

Scroll down to see the photos showcasing some of the rescued dogs. The photos taken by David document an overall improvement in dogs' lives, health, and appearance. 

We also reached out to David Fernández himself, so make sure to read our interview.

As mentioned before, we contacted David again and asked him a couple of questions regarding his mission of helping dogs in need. We wanted to know what initially inspired him to start rescuing strays living on the streets of Santiago, Chile. Fernández told us: “What inspired me to rescue dogs was the terrible situation in which they find themselves. It is traumatic to see that abandonment is practically normal on the streets of Chile and in the conditions in which they are found.”

Santiago, Chile, has a significant population of stray dogs. We were wondering what challenges these dogs face and David explained: “Santiago de Chile is the 'cradle' of animal abuse and reflects the country's underdevelopment and lack of a responsible pet ownership culture. The primary challenges for authorities include directing resources towards promoting adoption, with a strong emphasis on responsible adoption. In Chile, it's common to see organizations near shopping centers 'giving away' dogs without sufficient screening to ensure the animals' future well-being. The metropolitan region faces a significant task in promoting widespread and systematic sterilization, fostering adoption, and implementing educational programs about the genuine responsibilities of dog ownership.”

Many of the dogs Fernández rescues suffer from serious illnesses such as mange and injuries. We asked David what typical process he follows to provide them with the care they need. He said: “The process required to rescue a severely mangy and injured dog is a meticulous and gradual one, aimed at preventing further deterioration. It typically spans approximately three months of intense effort. In each case, the process involves a series of steps, including sanitary baths, wound cleaning, and psychological treatments to facilitate social reintegration, among others.”

David’s work not only transforms the lives of individual dogs but also contributes to broader awareness of animal welfare. We were curious to find out how his efforts impact the community's perspective on animal and stray care. Fernández told us: “My efforts to raise social awareness about responsible dog care have yielded little validation. Over the years, I've felt that despite my consistent efforts, there has been no discernible progress in our society. On the contrary, month after month, day after day, year after year, I witness an increasing number of dogs suffering from abuse. It feels like a never-ending and vicious cycle.”

Finally, he explained what changes would be necessary to achieve results and reduce the number of abused dogs: "There is a deficiency in effective laws for the protection of animals. Presently, we have a law that, in practice, doesn't function effectively, allowing animal abusers to go unpunished. The challenge lies in the proper allocation of available resources; while the resources exist, the issue lies in the lack of a suitable process for their allocation."
