Abused dog covered in scars collapses in front of stranger

For those angels who rescue abused animals and get them the help they need we often don’t think about how hard it must be when they’re first confronted with an animal in such dire need.

Some animals are so abused they must look scary at first; abused animals are often temperamental.

When one animal rescuer was confronted with a stray dog covered in scars, she didn’t have time to think, she just knew she had to act fast to save her.

The Redlands, in Orlando, Florida is a notorious dumping ground for unwanted animals.

Every day rescue organization,Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dog Project, takes food out to The Redlands to feed stray animals.

Animal heroes give out around 350 pounds of food every day to the 100 stray dogs that fight to survive in that area.

Natalie Oliveri, the president ofFurever Bully Love Rescue, in Orlando, was helping the group feed the animals one day when she was confronted with stray dog Harper.

Harper was with a group of other dogs but just fell to the ground when she saw Natalie.

The experienced dog carer recognized that Harper was traumatized and noticing all the scars on her body she knew she couldn’t leave her there.

She was taken to the vet and treated for worms, a tooth infection, and anemia.

Natalie said Harper didn’t move much for three days as staff showered her with as much love and attention as she would allow.

Harper was fostered by Cheryl Kessler who reports that Harper is a much happier dog.
