An Observant Traffic Worker Saved This Street-Crossing Pooch’s Life

If you live in Arizona and use State Route 51 on your commute, you know how busy this road can be. As you can imagine, this area is no place for a little puppy to be wandering around, but one unlucky dog recently found herself on the crowded highway.

Someone at the Department of Transportation’s Traffic Control Center was monitoring the highway’s cameras when he spotted the pooch. That’s when he decided to take action.

No one knows where the dog came from, but she was seen attempting to cross State Route 51 In Pheonix.

Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) employee Gil Estrada was monitoring the cameras that day when he noticed the terrified dog. When he picked her up in his car, she was curled up on the median.

The dog was given to the Arizona Equine Rescue Organization (AERO), and they offered to help find her a home.

So far, the owners of the pooch haven’t come forward, and AERO plans to put her up for adoption. They have named her ADOT in honor of the employee who saved her life.

This Dog Was Scared, Wounded, And Starving When They Found Her. Now Look At Her!

Our Indian friends at Animal Aid Unlimited recently discovered a street dog that was in desperate need of help — and would’ve died without a rescue. The pup was suffering from a maggot-infested neck wound that was both threatening her life and making it miserable.

Without treatment she would have died in a day or two. Luckily they got to her in time and she’s been transformed into the most adorable, happy little dog now!

This Woman Has Made It Her Life’s Goal To Rescue Dogs In Need All Over Nepal

A little over six years ago, Kate and Doug Clendon took in a dog with a broken leg, but that’s just where their journey started

The New Zealand couple cared for the pup in their house, got it veterinary help, and returned it to the community it called home. But when word spread of their selfless deed, more dogs came to their doorstep and the need for a more permanent solution arose.

That’s when they decided to devote their lives to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming poor dogs in Nepal. Community Dog Welfare Kopan was born.

Kate and Doug Clendon wanted to help as many dogs as they could, so they built a shelter next to their house in Kathmandu.

Though Nepalese people believe it’s important to care for not only their dogs but those of the community, the country is incredibly poor.

So when the shelter opened, the kennels were quickly filled with pups in need of food and medical care.

The small team at the shelter works day and night to help treat all kinds of ailments — from broken limbs to tapeworms and cancerous tumors.

They also work with the community on bigger events to distribute vaccines and spay and neuter animals.

While funds have always been a little tight, as is true of most rescue shelters in the world, things were only made worse on April 25, 2015…a 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit the region.

Now more than ever, the people of Kathmandu call on the shelter for help treating lost, injured, and starving dogs.

The dogs (and the locals) are ever grateful for all the aid.

If you’d like to contribute to this amazingly worthy cause, every bit counts. There are plenty of ways to get involved. While every community should be so lucky to have kind people like Kate and her husband, it’s struggling countries and cities like Kathmandu and Nepal that really benefit from their good nature.
