There are an estimated 30 million stray dogs roaming the streets of India.
With poorly lit roads, these pups often end up causing accidents or becoming roadkill.
To save strays from being mowed down by vehicles, a non-profit organization called Motopaws has come up with an initiative to fit as many dogs as possible with reflective collars made from donated denim. While it’s certainly not a solution to the stray problem, it goes a long way toward saving lives.
What an ingenious way to help these pups.
It’s not a bad idea for domestic dogs either! For those late-night walks around the block.
You can find out more information about Motopaws on their Facebook page.
