The Complicated Issue of Dogs in Iran

Like all in the Middle East, issues are complicated – even the topic of ‘man’s best friend.’ Here’s a story about saving dogs at an animal shelter just outside Tehran. In fact, it’s may be the only animal shelter in Iran, a nation of over 70 million people. No one knows how many homeless pets…
