In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Raj Kantak, Founder and CEO of Petzzco, shared, “Stray animals may also suffer from medical issues due to a lack of proper care. They may have parasites, infections, or other illnesses that require medical attention. Without proper care, these animals may suffer from long-term health issues. Providing medical care for stray animals can help them live healthier and happier lives.”

He suggested, “These animals can also benefit from socialization. They may have been isolated for long periods of time and need to learn how to interact with humans and other animals. Socialization can help them feel more comfortable in their environment and help them build relationships with people. Finally, stray animals need to be allowed to find a permanent home. Many of these animals have been through a lot and deserve to be given a chance to live in a loving and safe environment. Adopting a stray animal can be a rewarding experience for both the animal and the adopter.”
