British animal rescue in Qatar has rescued hundreds of abandoned animals from 50°C killer temperatures

NEWS AND COMMENT: A British charity called Paws Rescue Qatar (PQR) has done some sterling work since 2014 when it was founded by Alison Caldwell and Vicky Lamont. Essentially they rescue abandoned cats and dogs from the streets of Qatar. This is an incredibly hot country with temperatures sometimes reaching 50°C. These abandoned animals can barely survive under these killer temperatures. Further, the locals, the Qataris, often treat street animals as pests which translates to being cruel to them. The founders of PQR say that locals sometimes run over them deliberately to kill them or they poison them and beat them et cetera. Paws Rescue Qatar. Photo: PQR.

The news is devastating to them. Se
