The life of the stray animals isn’t easy at all. Not only these helpless creatures struggle to fend for themselves, but they are also many times afraid of the humans who treat them with disrespect.
Unfortunately, finding shelter to hide is another obstacle many of them face. Probably in an attempt to rest from the street life, two dogs ended up stranded in a sewer. The animals were aware they were in trouble and knew that the only way to survive was for someone to get them out of that place.
They started barking and howling hoping someone kind would hear their cries for help. Luckily, that’s exactly what happened.
It was teenagers Citlaly Rodriguez and Isaac Barajas who spotted the trapped dogs. They were aware something had to be done as soon as possible so they alerted Hope for Paws of what they sumbled upon. And as it turned out it was just the right thing to do as this organization has helped thousands of animals in need of help before.
Edgar and Loreta from Hope for Paws came at the scene at no time and were determined to get the dogs out. They approached very slowly and carefully because they didn’t want to further scare the already frightened souls.
But, the dogs knew these people were there to help and collaborated.
The teenagers stayed at the scene and offered their help to the rescuers and only left when they were sure the dogs were completely safe. “When Loreta and I arrived, we worked with these two awesome kids and together we completed this rescue mission,” Edgar said.
The dogs were brought at the organization’s shelter and were offered medical help and a nice bath. The staff named them Winn and Dixie and all they needed to do next was to find them a nice and loving home.
Although the assumptions were that Winn and Dixie were probably strays, they were still inspected for microchips. Since they didn’t have any, the rescuers could only make guesses whether they got stuck in the sewer by themselves or someone dumped them there. But, one thing was for sure, that Winn and Dixie were best of friends.
Once they recovered from the ordeal, both Winn and Dixie were transferred to another local organization, Wags and Walks. Thankfully, the staff at this organization managed to find them a forever home. What’s most, they weren’t separated but were adopted together by a family that loves them very much.
