When dogs and other animals arrive at the shelter after being abused or neglected, they sometimes do not survive due to injuries or exhaustion.
When the animals suffered a terrible hurricane on the Atlantic coast, rescuers picked up these shipwrecked beings and placed them in shelters.
We prepared the shelters, cleaned them and painted them to accommodate the affected animals who were evacuated.
At the shelter there was a sweet and friendly dog who was brought here following the horror.
Despite his old scars, as well as new wounds that covered his face and body, he was handsome and admirable.
They said he had been through hell, but his sad eyes were soft and warm.
We called him Nemo. He was lucky enough to be adopted by a good family and received a warm welcome.
By visiting the shelter and meeting Némo, the young woman called Marie fell in love with him.
It was a mutual love. The dog loved cuddles and loved being rocked like a baby.
He especially loved Marie’s little girls. When the little ones played in the yard, the dog watched them the whole time and accompanied them everywhere.
This sweetness between the dog and its owners seemed boundless.
How wonderful it is to save someone, to love them and care for them, even if they are not a human being.
In Nemo’s eyes, we see infinite recognition.
