Charlotte, a volunteer from Mission Paws’ible, an animal shelter, was on her way home with her friend when she saw a dog in horrible condition. They knew they had to help the poor pup so they pulled over and approached her.
Hey there Delilah
Charlotte was shocked when she saw the dog’s condition. Delilah, the pup, had a very serious skin disease that made her partly bald.
Despite her condition, Delilah was very approachable. Charlotte and her friend walked up to her and gave her some food to munch on.
Unfortunately, Charlotte did not have any rescuing equipment with her and she didn’t want to touch Delilah with her bare hands in case that she was in pain. Charlotte decided to ride her scooter home, gather the equipment, then come back to rescue the dog. Unluckily, when Charlotte came back, Delilah was nowhere to be seen.
Charlotte spent days trying to find Delilah all over town. One day, she bumped into a man working at the marker who claims he knew where Delilah slept. Desperate to find the dog, Charlotte trusted the man and gave him a cage to put Delilah in.
The same night, the man texted Charlotte saying that they successfully captured Delilah. Charlotte was beyond grateful and picked Delilah up first thing the next morning.
Journey to recovery
Delilah was taken to an animal hospital where she stayed for a few weeks. Charlotte visited the pup as much as possible and was glad to see that with medication and thorough care, Delilah was getting better.
Once Delilah was discharged from the clinic, she immediately went into foster care. Luckily, Amelia, a kind woman, saw Delilah and immediately wanted to adopt her.
Amelia had other dogs which helped Delilah come out of her shell and blossom into a playful and loving dog. Despite all that she has been through, Delilah finally had the life she deserved.
