Meet Angel and here is her story. Angel was purposefully famished and on the edge of death. She was rescued in the nick of time. Her organs had began to shut down. As you can see by her face, she is in pain, weak and terrified. Every bone on her body painfully showed.
Angel’s body wasn’t just shutting down but so was she. Being neglected and tormented for this long had really broken her down. But that was all about to change– now that she was in the hands of caring people.
For a while, it was touch and go. At this point of famine, survival is doubtful. Yet she had incredibly brilliant people in her corner that understood just what to do. They fed her modest amounts of food throughout the day. She was also given Intravenous nourishment, antibiotics, and drugs for pain.
Each day, Angel improved. As Rescue From The Hart states in their film, “We offered her our strength, until one day she discovered her own,” is very poignant. Yet as you shall see, they were spot on! Angel took their lead. They saw positivism in their eyes and believed them when they informed her that she is now loved and will be okay. And then… she stood up all on her own! Do you know how fantastic that is?!
With a consistent diet and continued medical care, Angel gained weight. Her body was no longer feeble. She looked so healthy and was beginning to understand what it meant to be a dog.
She gained friends at her foster home and then Angel received the sweetest news possible– Angel found a permanent home!
While we do understand the urge to remain blissfully uninformed of animal maltreatment is often simpler, it’s not the answer. When you love animals to the core, working for their well-being is certainly the essence of compassion. Putting stories out there, like Angel’s, is how rescue groups survive.
They operate on donations from animal lovers like us. It’s not simply about giving money. It’s also about publicizing stories like Angel’s so people can see exactly what happens when rescuers perform their job when they have the resources they need.
We urge that you continue to share stories of survival, like Angel’s, so rescue groups can continue to thrive. And animals like Angel get forever homes.
