There is no greater legacy than leaving the world a little better than we found it. Seeing an innocent animal in pain inspires hundreds of people to become rescuers of innocent animals on the streets or who are treated with contempt.
And it is this power that pulls us to save the furry ones who need someone to protect them when our hearts are opened to them. One of these extraordinary women, a member of the Lucky Dog Refuge in Stanford, Connecticut, discovered a dog in a terrible situation.
Halo, the fuzzy one, was curled up on the forest floor. She had a completely lost appearance, indicating that she was blind. She was also starving. Fortunately, the good will of this group of men and women allowed Halo to aspire to a new beginning in life.
Halo was truly in bad shape, but with a little tender loving care, a lot of love, compassion, and, yes, a few McDonald’s ice cream cones, the dog rose from the ashes and began to reveal herself exactly as she is. That is correct.
According to a local media outlet, the young animal was abandoned in the middle of the greenery, on the ground in a ball, most likely simply waiting for death to end the suffering. The milky tone of his pupils revealed his blindness.
One of the volunteers tried to encourage her with food so she would get up and leave the site on her own. When Halo stood up, they realised why she was so frail: she was just bones and skin.
Because the rescue team decided that if it became impossible to treat her, they would put her to death with dignity, thus the name Halo, “halo” in Spanish. The truth is that she was clinging on far too tightly. It did not seem fair to them to prolong her misery.
“We did not think it was fair to put her through more than she was already going through.” “If it came to it, we would put her to sleep,” said one of the rescuers.
Halo began to advance and heal gradually, as if by miracle, with every chance of living a normal life again. She moved in with a foster family to begin her medical therapy.
Halo’s health was in poor shape when she arrived, according to Stacey, her foster mother, but no one at the shelter hesitated for a second to help her with anything.
Halo leant on Stacey when she was ready to move, expressing immense delight in experiencing the love of human warmth, which she selflessly demonstrated to whom she had never experienced.
Hugs, kisses, caresses, and snuggling are few and far between.
“Despite her vision impairment, the dog made progress in her recovery and is a very lively fluffy dog, loving of cuddles and clever.” “She enjoys eating her favourite ice cream cones on the couch,” her carer observed.
This is fantastic news for the entire Animal Kingdom. We enjoy seeing how another person’s life works.
From this platform, we hope to do our part, not only by assisting young animals on the road, but also by raising awareness in others so that the little that one can do multiplies and causes global change.
All the other abandoned furry ones may have a chance, just as this small puppy was changed by the love she received as she began a new life. Share this happy-ending story with your friends and family.
