Life on the streets is cruel enough. Homeless animals suffer from starvation, lack of shelter and clean water, and danger from oncoming traffic as they cross busy streets to find food. It is exhausting and relentless. In many parts of the world, stray animals run rampant. It isn’t possible to house them all but many organizations, Like Animal Aid, do all they can to help as many animals as possible.
The rescue group received a call about a dog that had severe mange. Mange is always challenging to treat but her case was so extensive that she had lost all of her fur, leaving her exposed to secondary skin infections, parasites, and potential sunburn which could be fatal. Animal Aid dispatched volunteers to help the dog. She welcomed the volunteer’s treats because she was understandably starving, but she had no intention of being picked up and taken away.
