Street life is brutal enough. Homeless animals suffer from hunger, lack of shelter and clean water, and danger from oncoming traffic as they cross busy roads in search of food. It is exhausting and cruel. There are countless street animals in many parts of the world. It is not possible to take them all in, but many organizations like Animal Aid are doing their best to help as many as possible.
The rescue team received a call about a dog with severe mange. Mange is always difficult to treat, but her condition was so severe that she had lost all her fur, putting her at risk of secondary skin infections, parasites and potentially fatal burns. The animal rescue service sent volunteers to help the dog. Understandably hungry, she was happy to receive treats from the volunteers, but she would not be taken away.
