Any dog or cat lover would feel heartbroken when thinking of the fact that there are so many stray dogs and cats desperate for help out there. Additionally, animal populations are skyrocketing as those stray cats and dogs are not neutered or spayed. Therefore, it is not only a problem for the stray animals that need to live at the place they deserve, but it is also a problem for the rescue organizations. Eventually, there will be too many strays to handle, and some cities are already about to be overrun with stray animals.
Fortunately, some amazingly kindhearted people are so keen to save those animals in need. Such wonderful humans will gladly spend countless hours of their time, and thousands of dollars of their own money, to save the lives of homeless animals. Mary is an American mom, who spent a lot of time in Turkey with her daughters, Abby, Anna, and Alaina, working to save as many dogs as they could.

Dog shelters in this country rarely euthanize dogs. Therefore, the shelters there are almost full to a dangerous degree. There had been more than four thousand pups at the shelter where Mary and her daughters volunteered to help. In spite of the truly shocking conditions there, this amazing family spared no efforts to help as many dogs as possible. There is no doubt that it was too much for Mary and the three daughters, but they kept doing everything they can.
One day, Mary’s little daughter noticed a little puppy who was dying. She believed the little puppy deserved to die in peace, surrounded by a loving family to comfort her in her last days. Therefore, she decided to bring the poor little angel home, and offer her the feeling of safety and love for the last time in her life, and the first time, too!
The puppy was suffering from severe neurological problems caused by a sort of fatal distemper. After she was brought home with Mary and her daughters, the most unexpected miracle happened!
Although the little puppy was already on the brink of her death, she fought back for her life. It seemed like she destined to remain as a permanent member of her new family in her new forever home!
There are many thousands of animals in bad need of help out there. However, stories like this one are a good reminder that hope still exists, as long as we keep faith in our hearts. With more families like Mary’s, every homeless dog may have a forever-loving home one day!
