Not everyone is an animal-lover, and quite frankly, not everyone even needs to be either. But, being human beings, it becomes our foremost basic duty not to be cruel to the speechless species. It's fine not to love them, but it definitely is inexcusable to be cruel to them. But then, for every few haters, there's also a lover, who appears from the crowd of haters to come to the helpless' aid. And this story proves the same. Check it out!
When Darlene went to get a manicure, she came to learn of a story from her nail technician as they casually started a conversation.
The woman told Darlene that her son had a dog named Smokey that he didn't want. And so, he refused to feed him. Darlene thought it was only obvious that the technician was feeding the dog because her son wasn't.
Darlene, being that kind of a person who's always optimistic about the good in the world, could not believe what she was looking at when the technician showed her a photo of Smokey. Smokey was all skeleton and skin!
Darlene immediately took it on herself to do something about the situation. She drove up to the technician's house and gave her son a good hearing. And then, she left with the dog.
Darlene took Smokey to the animal hospital. The vet on duty immediately placed Smokey on an IV drip and gave him 24-hour attention. He was given fluids and food, but because he had been neglected for so long, it forced his body to go into shock. A further medical investigation determined that Smokey had been deprived of food for several weeks - maybe even months.
Smokey's improvement was very encouraging. His weight went up from 40 to 60 pounds, and he seemed healthier and happier than ever. However, finances began to become a problem as Darlene had been paying the expense all by herself and the bills had begun to amount up to thousands and thousands of dollars.
Not only did they help Darlene clear all the fees due for Smokey's treatment, but they also assisted in finding Smokey a new home, where he would be loved. Today, Smokey is one of the happiest dogs, receiving a lot of love and ample food! Smokey was lucky enough to fall into Darlene's notice just in time. The two were recently reunited, and the sight of their joy was simply amazing!
