We’ve all seen the SPCA commercials on television – the poor scared animals in a shelter somewhere. They are all looking at the camera and each one makes you even more sad than the previous one. Well to be honest, those animals had it easy compared to what this scared little girl has had to go through. This is Kelsey, and she has been through the ringer. This poor girl lived the early years of her life on the streets. With only scraps to eat, she slowly withered away until she was almost unrecognizable as a dog. Sadly this is the fate of many dogs around the world who aren’t born in places where they are easily adoptable or rescued. Sadder still, in many parts of the world people just don’t care about dogs, as they are considered a nuisance. Lucky for her a group of rescuers spotted her and were determined to give her a fighting chance.
A group of rescuers spotted Kelsey on the side of the road. She was scavenging for anything she could eat.
Kelsey was completely malnourished and her body was ravaged with sores and infections.
Rescuers were able to get Kelsey into the car after hours of trying. This poor girl has had a rough go of it.
Veterinarians at the rescue center could not believe that she had survived for so long in her condition.
Kelsey needed nutrition, so the first step that had to be taken was getting her to eat real food.
It’s horrible that animals are sometimes abandoned and left to live a life of starvation and trauma.
Just look at that face! How could you say no to her?
Overtime, Kelsey’s wounds started to heal. When this happened, the spirit that was broken by constant suffering started to shine through.
Her silliness came out as she learned to play with other dogs.
She started to become comfortable just being a dog again. She knew she wouldn’t have to worry about love ever again.
Fur started to grow back as well.
Do you think she’s comfortable with her new surroundings?
That is an absolutely amazing transformation.
She gained so much weight and looks like a completely different animal.
She looks like she found right where she belongs.
This transformation was absolutely amazing. Kelsey was on the brink of death when these rescuers found her. With their help she is now a happy, thriving dog with so much love to give. If only we had the ability to help every lonely and starving animal the way these people have helped Kelsey.
