Leslie feeding the dogs buiscuits outside the Shelter.

Leslie has 4,000 of these biscuits specially made every month. It’s a private thing, not connected with the Shelter. They’re about 5 inches across. He always has about sixty in his backpack wherever he goes. There’s not much nutrition in them. But they’re hard and crunchy. And the dogs love to chew them and hear the sound. If he comes upon a furry one that looks hungry, he has a stash of Pedigree to give him.

He’s been doing this for six years. That’s 300,000 biscuits. He said that it’s good for the dogs just to get the stroke of affection and kindness. And it’s good for people to see him being kind to the dogs. It helps change the way they relate to them.

People every once in a while ask for a biscuit. He tells them they’re only for dogs. If he starts giving it to one person, within a week hundreds will be asking. And it would bankrupt him.

Biscuits for the guys.
