Edina Ferreira Prado, 70, shoos some of her many dogs with a broom. While the presence of so many dogs in such a small space gives off a feeling of chaos, Prado says the dogs are ultimately quite well behaved. Moments of fighting and aggression are outweighed by generally cooperative and playful behavior.

Edina Ferriera Prado, 70, nearly in tears as she gives a puppy away for adoption. Prado said she always fears new owners will mistreat them.

While Prado initially intended to keep the dogs she shelters, their numbers have grown so large that she puts many of them up for adoption. Every Saturday she takes around 10-15 of her dogs to an event to have them adopted. She tries to only give away dogs who have stayed with her for a short time.

Tourism Industry Crisis on Egypt's Re...

In the years since the Arab Spring Revolution, Egypt’s tourism industry has suffered a huge decline. And after the bombing of the Russian Airbus A321 in the Sinai Peninsula, Egyptian tourism is experiencing its most serious crisis in history: a loss of about $ 283 million per month. Russian and UK airlines are no longer operating flights to Red Sea resorts leaving hotels and once thriving beaches like ghost towns.

This photo collection documents the abandoned landscape, deserted beaches and unfinished hotels in Marsa Alam.

Photos show the abandoned headquarters of ISIS on al-Intilak st. in central Deir Ez Zour. The militants left the building, which was originally used by a consumer organization known as al-Qabban, for fear of them being targeted by international air strikes. However, ISIS still has control over the city and their religious police drive around the area enforcing sharia law by monitoring dress codes, making sure shops are closed at prayer times, and enforcing a smoking ban, among other things. The video also shows a former research center also used by IS and now abandoned.
