In Social Medias, there are tons of videos by various Animal Care Organizations that features how they rescue dogs in the streets. These animals are traumatized and others have given up with their lives. But the moment they see people that trying to help them, who patiently waiting to earn their trust, they instantly gain hope. The abandoned dogs are taken to a shelter where they are fed, treated and being taken care of.
Most of the animals that are brought to the shelter suffers from mange, malnutrition and in worst case scenario, their flesh are already eaten by maggots. The volunteers devote their selves in taking care of these poor abandoned dogs.
