This Iraqi woman is saving animals in her city

Location: Amarah, Iraq

The school teacher Zainab al-Obeidy has turned her home into accommodation

where she cares for and treats animals away from the road

before putting them up for adoption

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) TEACHER AND PET SUCCESSOR, ZAINAB AL-OBEIDY, SAY, “Those who suffer the most on the street are the little pups who are without their moms. The first thing I do is get a medical exam with the vet to see if they need an operation or something. Then I bathe them and take care of them until I find someone to adopt them. “

The 26-year-old has helped more than 50 animals

It currently houses five dogs and eight cats

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) TEACHER AND VETERALER, ZAINAB AL-OBEIDY, SAY: “People first made fun of me and said, ‘People die and you take care of animals.’ But I didn’t care. On the contrary, I worked harder. And if God willing, I’ll soon be setting up a rescue team for dogs and cats. “
