We are always heartbroken, devastated, and utterly confused every time we come across stories of dog abuse or neglect. We just never understand how people can inflict such cruelty on such a loving animal. Thankfully, there is also a lot of kindness in the world.
Josiane Almeida, an animal rescuer from Lagoa da Prata, Brazil, received a call about a mother dog and her puppies. They were all tied in a sack and left on a desolate dirt road in the middle of nowhere.
“Some of the worst scenes of mistreatment I’ve ever witnessed,” Almeida wrote in a post online. “A sick mother with puppies tied in a sack and thrown in the middle of nowhere. They’ve been there for quite some time.”
When Almeida first approached the mama dog after freeing her from the sack, she was very wary, as you could imagine. But soon, she realized that Almeida was actually there to help them, not hurt them.
One puppy stood by mom’s side while three other puppies remained trapped inside the sack. Soon – everything was about to change, for the better! Continue to the next page for the rescue video and more on these sweet dogs that were discarded like garbage.
