A Little Kindness and Love Can Indeed Change a Life (Photos)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


(N.Morgan) It is an unfortunate and sad fact that not every dog is provided a loving and safe home. This can be due to the dog being born on the streets or being abandoned in early puppyhood because their owners were either unable to provide for them or decided that owning a dog was too big of a responsibility.

Pooches like these regularly spend the greater part of their lives capriciously meandering the streets, fighting off dangers and ailments and scarcely scrounging enough food scraps to survive

Kelsey had been one of those dogs, living in the streets homeless and a stray, she was just barely surviving.

When rescuers recently found her on the side of the road, they were shocked: her condition was critical, so much so she hardly even resembled a dog.

The photo above shows when rescuers discovered a homeless pup they later named Kelsey on the side of a busy road, she was barely recognizable. She was thin, malnourished, and covered in sores. Not only that, but she was also desperately searching for something to eat.

As rescuers assessed the dog’s condition, they determined that her body had been completely ravaged by sores and infections. These cuts and bruises had resulted in the most of her fur falling out, which caused her to appear even more thin and sickly. They knew she was in desperate need of medical attention and they had to act fast. 

Like many stray and abandoned animals, Kelsey was suspicious and very cautious, not trusting these individuals who were trying to help her. For a long time, she refused to allow the rescuers to place her into their vehicle so they could take her to get help. After a few hours of patient coaxing, the rescuers finally were finally able to gain Kelsey’s trust and get her into the car.

It was clear to the rescue team that Kelsey was in terrible shape. And the team realized if they had not found her when they did, there would have been a good chance that Kelsey might not have survived. In fact, the veterinarians at the rescue center could not believe she was still alive at all when they first saw her.

The veterinarians used all of their expertise to ensure that Kelsey would survive her horrific ordeal. They worked tirelessly to give her the proper care she clearly needed immediately. The first step, of course, was to make sure she was eating nutritious food.

Getting her to eat proper dog food wasn’t very difficult, the poor dog was starving and pretty much willing to wolf down almost anything presented to her! Even though she had a long way to go before she could be a fully healthy dog again, the veterinarians were going to do whatever it took to get her back on her feet.

By that point, Kelsey seemed to sense that she was in good hands. The veterinary staff could see her warming up to them, and her spirits appeared to be rising by the second. Just take a look at that sweet face! That’s a dog who knows she’s going to get better.

As Kelsey’s infections and wounds started to heal, her spunky spirit began to shine through. It was clear that the companionship of the veterinarians was helping her feel right at home with them. It wasn’t long before she was eagarly stepping outdoors to enjoy the sunshine whenever they did.

Another major step in Kelsey’s recovery was helping her to learn how to socialize with other dogs and animals. Thankfully, the staff at the animal hospital was quick to introduce her to a number of other dogs at the facility who were more than happy to play with her and show her the ‘doggie’ ropes!

Kelsey was blazing her way towards making a full recovery in a physical sense, but she was also becoming more social and comfortable around the people and other animals in her new environment. As her body was healing right before the staff’s eyes, so had her spirit returned. She was clearly much happier!

Once her sores and infections healed, it wasn’t very long before Kelsey’s beautiful fur finally began to grow back. Thanks to all the love and care she’d received, she no longer looked anything like the poor animal the hospital had begun treating just a few short weeks prior!

Like any pup, Kelsey was more than happy to curl up and nap in her new cozy, comfortable dog bed! It is certainly a better place than the cold concrete of the uncertain streets. It was clear she definitely felt right at home. She was finally experiencing a normal dog’s life: going for walks, taking naps, and eating lots of delicious, healthy snacks. 

Kelsey has turned into a happy, healthy and beautiful dog just like any other. It was amazing to see what the veterinary staff was able to accomplish once Kelsey received the proper love and care that every dog deserves.

She was clearly thankful for their help, too.

Best of all, Kelsey was eventually adopted! She finally got the happy ending she deserved, and it was all thanks to the vets and rescuers who made all the difference in her unbelievable transformation. Bravo to them!

      Great feel good story, N. Thanks for this article. As a dog lover, this made my day.

      • God save our Republic

        A heartwarming story, now that the liberals will climb out of America’s ass we could experience the same kind of healthy progress.

      Hello Angle#3,

      Charlie here. Let me tell you my pet bull story. A friend and I were driving on this deserted road and we were caught in a rainstorm and as we crossed a bridge we saw a dog huddled on the side. My friend insisted we stop and help the dog. Mind you it was raining cats and dognuts.

      So I stopped and he opened the door and tried to get the dog to come, but it wouldn’t. He kept trying but it just stayed huddled and finally we left. Don’t know what happened to the dog.

      But it reminded me of how we should adopt two-legged ones and save them instead. :lol: :lol:

      BTW, you look different in the last photo from your avatar photo. :shock: :shock:


      Charlie (saw a sign at a farm the other day. It said, “Do Not Pet Bull”) :wink: :wink:

        You’re a Real IDIOT there FOOL !!!

    • Andy

      a MILLION innocent human beings (mostly children and the elderly) prematurely die EVERY WEEK and you’re worried about a fucking dog?

      the US spends 62 billion, the UK 8 billion (not to mention the rest of the planet) every year on fucking pets while 20+ million innocent kids die from starvation, lack of clean water and because they can’t afford a 5 cent vitamin A pill

      humanity is sick beyond repair

      • dwcwn6

        Gotta agree with you Andy. I love my dogs, got 2 labs and 1 german sheppard. But when one of them growled at my grandson for being too grabby, i picked that dog up by the fur, carried to the laundry and beat it within an inch of its life. Dogs are awesome to a point, but compared to humans, they can’t even hold a candle. We need to stop fawning over our stupid pets and divert that energy towards humans. I personally give to various homeless shelters and children funds because i believe in it. I don’t give a nickel to animal shit.

      • Nicole Morgan (Investigative Reporter)

        Andy, I understand where you are coming from, but once in awhile, it’s nice to take a breather.

        I’ve been involved with exposing the truth for over 15 years now and it is good for the soul to be reminded of the kindness that does still exist in the world.

        Sorry if my article offended your sensitivities, but as the others have said here, it is a nice break from the usual gloom and doom.

        There are plenty of articles you can get that from, if that’s your desire.

        I will be writing more articles like this one and if you aren’t interested, the semi new hover feature of seeing what the article is about and who it is by can help you avoid mine.

        I’m glad everyone else liked it and thank you for the kind words of encouragement. :smile:

      Dogs like this make the best pets. They will study you and your habits and do everything in their little power to be a great champion of your likes. Like brings you your slippers or sticking by your side without a leash on those long walks. I had one that would open and shut her mouth like she was talking to you just to be a part of the conversation when friends stopped by or I was talking to my children.

      She never add accidents, never chewed up my shoes, and watch carefully any strangers approaching me to make sure everything was A-ok. The new owner of this dog is truly blessed in ways she has yet to discover.

      Since the concervative reactionary Source and the same-8 in the Creators’ world were swept away,
      pole shift, major cataclysm of Earth and crash of Nibiru to Earth – all of these ceased to occur
      Earth and 20,000 planets of evil and corrupt civilizations will undergo the major turnaround
      2017.7.12 T. Tatsmaki (Japan)
      The conservative reactionary Source-8 (in charge of Earth) in the Creators’ world, and their creators i.e. the upper rank rulers – the conservative reactionary Source were swept away by the measures on sweep of the Creators, respectively on July 8, 2017 and July 9, Japan time.
      As a result, according to the notice from the Creators, the direction of the planet Nibiru which is rapidly approaching to the Earth turned aside from the Earth. Thereby, both the pole shift of the Earth and Nibiru’s collision with the Antarctic side of the Earth in mid-October, 2017 ceased to occur.
      The major cataclysm of the Earth by the pole shift also ceased to occur.
      The measures by the Creators on sweep of the Earth and about 20,000 evil and corrupt civilizations’ planets is also avoided, and following the Destiny of Creators who have given everything gratuitously for them too, the major revolutionary changes will occur in the cosmic scale, by which these planets transit to planets of everything gratuitous services.
      British workers staged a demo under a banner of “Abolish Money!” against G8 summit. Their such a strategic requirement will be achieved.
