“Everyone, please welcome Angel, the newest canine crew member here at Vigilante Dog Rescue! Freezing, frostbitten, emaciated and completely alone, she sought shelter from the storm last night on someone’s front porch in Detroit- and that someone got in touch with us. We were not planning on taking in any dogs, were only one dog away from being at our capacity once again after Pumpkin Mama’s adoption two weeks ago…but this one dog, this furry Angel, was the dog meant to fill that emergency vacancy in our head foster’s home and heart. Estimated to be somewhere around 7 or 8 years old, with ears bloodied from frostbite, a half healed wound on her back, and every bone sticking out from her starving body, Angel needed us- and she needed us NOW. So we immediately took her to our vet for the full intake exam and begin her vaccines- half given today, the rest tomorrow to go easy on her so vulnerable system- and a heartworm test- which by the grace of whatever higher being there is was a big fat NEGATIVE!! From the moment our director first laid eyes and gentle, kind hands on Angel, it was clear there was just something about her that was special, a warrior’s spirit inside her broken body…so gentle, sweet, and trusting of humans despite how severely she was failed by our species, Angel is one of those special dogs who instantly enters and grabs your heart in the most primal of ways and never, ever lets go. Angel is now a part of our rescue, and a part of each of our souls as well, and the story her sad eyes tell will only get better and brighter from here on out.
