A woman is photographed with her puppy at the Randfontein Refuse Center on the outskirts of Johannesburg, South Africa.  She, like many others, lives in a small shanty and survives off the refuse brought in every day. Many residents sort and sell recyclable items and live off what edible food they can find thrown out by others.  IFAW's CLAW program, which provides veterinary services to cats and dogs in some of the poorest shantytowns outside of Johannesburg, regularly serves this area.  Through its mobile clinics, outreach programs and veterinary hospital, CLAW provides life-saving support to the community's animals every day.  2/21/12 Julia Cumes/IFAW
