Cats and dogs are put down on an everyday basis. Animal shelters simply do not have the room for these animals. The workers at the shelters do not enjoy this process and it is stressful for all parties involved. In a perfect world, no animals would ever have to be euthanized. This is an example of one of the rare occasions when it all worked out.
It is not every day that you get to see an animal be rescued just moments before they are slated to be euthanized. Eddie got to enjoy a happier experience than most, though. This dog got adopted a mere hour before he was scheduled to be euthanized at his shelter. Bronwyne was not about to let Edie die and she removed her from the predicament before it was too late.
Stories like these truly warm the heart, don’t they? Edie will now have a second chance with someone who actually cares about her. Once Edie was rescued, Eldad from Hope For Paws was contacted right away. Poor Edie would need all of the help that she could get. She had been abandoned and was clearly scared to be around humans….rightfully so.
Edie was also mistreated before her rescue. She was abused by the humans who were responsible for her care in the past. Eldad wanted to help her with all of this. Sadly, Edie not realize that he was one of the good guys. The first time Eldad attempted to reach out to her, she ran away and hid in the corner. Her matted down fur was blocking her eyes.
She even made a mess on the floor, out of fear. Eldad picked her up afterwards and let her know that it was going to be okay. She sensed his kindness and started to relax a bit. It did not take long before Edie got used to his presence. The rescue workers were also able to groom her and this allowed her to become much more comfortable in her own skin.
Once they were done, Edie looked like a whole new dog. Dogs like Edie die every day because people are unwilling or unable to notice the true diamonds in the rough. Mistreated animals deserve a chance, too. Let’s all do our part to raise awareness by sharing this story with a wider audience. Hopefully, stories like this one can become far more commonplace.
