Anyone that’s been to Puerto Rico most likely has seen the many stray pets over there. And one man has taken it upon himself to help that situation.

Glen Venezio has been feeding the stray cats of Santurce, Puerto Rico for over 10 years.

He spends hours every night to prepare the food, and he’s funded by not just his own finances, but from donations as well.

However, his reputation hasn’t been the best with locals, who aren’t a fan of stray animals staying in the area; it’s gotten to the point where Venezio needs a police officer with him for protection when he goes out at feeding time.

Venezio says himself that he will do this for as long as he has to—he feels as if its his duty to take care of these animals, as he cannot ignore it.

And from the looks of it, his efforts have given food to hundreds of cats over the years.

He doesn’t look like he’s going to stop anytime soon either.

With any luck, Venezio could change the minds of the people in the local area, and show them that stray animals deserve to survive just like we do.
