Only three years ago, abandoned animals in Hanoi had nowhere to go.
Household pets that were kicked out of the home, would wander the streets and fend for themselves, often resulting in death.
Now, it’s a completely different story.
In 2012, the city’s volunteer pet rescue service was established – a group of people doing similar work to that of Australia’s RSPCA.
And as Kai Hayes explains, volunteers are also attempting to change the way certain domesticated animals in Vietnam are perceived.
