While myths around COVID-19 have pushed many pet ‘lovers’ to abandon their furballs, these migrant workers traveling on foot to their hometown while carrying their pets in their arms will warm your heart.
An animal rescuer, Rajesh Natraj recently posted a picture that spoke a million words. Even in these tough times, given their current condition, migrant workers refused to abandon their pets, even if that meant carrying them and walking on foot for hundreds of kilometers.
This is a family of migrant worker. They are walking on the Mumbai Nasik Highway along with their belongings. So next time when you think to give up your pet whom you "loved like your own child" just remember this pic pic.twitter.com/RSlCdjOZEd— Navin Nadar (@navin_nadar) May 12, 2020
These migrants were captured on the Mumbai- Nashik Expressway walking with all their belongings, along wi th the company of their pets.
They create a bond with their pets and their pets are their families away from home. They don’t ever wish to let go of that. Migrants choose to stick with their pets through thick and thin, just like family does.
In fact, he further told us that when his team offered to help a few migrants and their pet rabbits, the migrants refused because they thought that it was a trap and people were trying to kill their pets because of the existing rumors.
