Time for a real tear-jerker. These videos depict some of the most horribly neglected dogs, and the heart-warming transformation that they underwent. It was an emotional rollercoaster for us watching it!
It really is heart-breaking to see how poorly some animals are treated, but at the same time it is beautiful to see how their lives can be turned around. The excitement and joy felt by each of the dogs in their new lives is simply wonderful.
Some of the videos have been shared millions of times and the company behind the rescues and treatment of the helpless dogs is called Hope for Paws. One their website they say;
“Pets are not items that can be thrown away or exchanged for younger models. Animals are sentient beings who feel pain, love, joy, mourning, and loss. These valuable creatures help us whether it is assisting the blind or finding people under the rubble from an earthquake. They help us in times of war and during human catastrophes.
We want to help both humans and animals alike live harmonious and fulfilling lives together.”
The comments on the videos are unexpectedly emotional and filled with praise for the work being done by Hope for Paws;
“These dogs are so happy to be alive after being at the other end. Amazing! Love stories like this”
“Good to see a happy ending for these beautiful dogs, now they get a dog walking session every morning, a big thank you to all those who changed their lives”
“Give credit where it’s due. These are all by the hope for paws team. Absolute miracle people.”
“I am crying. This video really touched a soft spot. The human touch can really work miracles when we opt to do the right thing and help those in need. Seeing these precious animals healthy and full of life again is so heartfelt”
“It’s not medical treatment… it’s LOVE”
This footage has really made our Thursday. Give it a watch, and by the end we promise you’ll need a few tissues. Heart melting.
