Those who call themselves pet lovers can be divided into two groups – those who buy pets and the evolved set that rescues and adopts. The latter is the one in whom our hopes reside. For they are the ones who know that not everything good in life needs to come with money.
Here are four heartwarming rescue stories which usher hope for humanity.
- The stray dog who saved the damsel
Some vacations don’t go as planned. British student Georgia Bradley found it the hard way during her trip to Crete. The young woman was alone on the beach when two men asked her to go for a drink, and then turned violent when she refused. Her saviour came and fended off the assailants. The knight who saved the day was a stray dog. When Georgia returned to the UK, she couldn’t stop thinking about the dog who saved her. She took the soonest flight back and dropped by the beach to find Pepper, the hero dog, and brought her home to the UK.
2. The Biker who rescued the Kitten
Pat Doody, the biker, recently rescued a kitten while riding cross country from Nevada to New Jersey. He found the kitten at a gas station and named it “Party Cat.” The cat now lives with Doody and has seen a vet.
3. The Girl with half-a-dozen pets (adopted)
When she isn’t electrifying the Delhi party scene, Aakriti Bamniyal can be found petting strays or rescuing them. As someone who lives up to the words, her home has cats and dogs of all colours and all of them have been Rescue cases.
4. Student walks the blind deer to find green patches for food
There is a blind deer in a US town and this boy walks her from one grass patch to another every day before school to make sure she finds food. Now, a local wildlife rescue group is picking up the deer so that she can be looked after and stay out of traffic.
