During her trip to a store in North Carolina, Valinda Cortez stumbled upon a poor puppy living in deplorable conditions. The abandoned canine seemed to have a look of despair and acceptance towards life, and was completely soaked from the rain.
Valinda knew that she needed to lend a helping hand immediately. She expressed, “My heart sank as I stepped out of my car. This tiny being has endured a considerable amount of time in the damp and chilly weather. It was evident that the infant had been abandoned.”
In order to earn the dog’s confidence, the lady took a gentle approach by coming closer to her and draped a blanket over her body to provide warmth. She stayed beside the dog for more than an hour, showing her care and concern.
Valinda contacted her pal Sue Massi, who is responsible for rescuing homeless dogs in the urban area, as soon as the dog was ready to be rescued. Sue arrived within 20 minutes and the dog was transported to a shelter.
Valinda expressed her disappointment in humans, but she has high hopes that providing an animal with nourishment, comfort, and affection will help restore their trust in humanity.
Cassie, the dog, now has a beaming expression on her face that exudes pure happiness. That’s why I chose this particular photo of her – it captures her distinctive features perfectly. It fills me with joy to see her so content.
