It is a fact that various governments have launched initiatives to prevent animal cruelty, however, such measures have been insufficient as maltreatment of animals persists and incidents of cruelty are still prevalent. For example, it is common to witness stray dogs wandering around and scavenging for food. Furthermore, there are instances where dogs are confined and abandoned without any means of survival, as illustrated in the following account.
Recently, social media was abuzz with photos of a helpless puppy found on the streets. Shockingly, the poor animal was tied up from its snout to neck and legs and left to die in some bushes. It’s disheartening to see such images, especially for those of us who strongly believe in raising awareness about the importance of taking responsibility for the well-being of any living creature. It’s unacceptable to abuse animals in any way, as they too are sentient beings deserving of love and care.
While out walking her four dogs, María Daniela Ceniceros Mingramm stumbled upon a heartbreaking sight. She found a puppy tied up and abandoned, left to fend for itself. This kind-hearted individual took it upon herself to rescue the poor pup, taking him to the vet for a check-up. Now, she is on a mission to find a loving forever home for the furry fellow. It’s sad to think that animal cruelty still exists, but it’s people like María who remind us of the good in the world. “I’m at a loss for words, guys. I found this puppy and we took him to the vet. If anyone wants to adopt him or knows someone who does, please get in touch with me. Help me spread the word. He’s just a baby, but he’ll grow into a big dog.” These are the words of a compassionate young woman who truly cares.
As soon as the post was shared, it quickly gained popularity, receiving more than 50,000 reactions, hundreds of comments, and 300,000 shares. The woman who shared the post revealed that the incident took place in the Las Alamedas neighborhood of Atizapán de Zaragoza, located in Mexico City. According to her, she frequently takes her four dogs for a walk near a large hill that leads to other neighborhoods. During one such walk, she was startled to discover a young boy tied up behind her house. María Daniela was taken aback by the disturbing sight.
As the girl already had her other four dogs with her, she sought the help of her mother and a neighbor to rescue the trapped dog. The three of them worked together to remove the rope and stickers from the dog’s legs and take him to a nearby veterinary clinic for treatment. The girl mentioned that it was a challenging situation as she had to control her own dogs while rescuing the trapped one. Thankfully, the man passing by in the area offered his help and took care of her dogs while they rescued the innocent animal. It is unclear how long the dog had been trapped before they found him.
The unfortunate man with a hairy body had a visible scar on his neck, which was evidence of the prolonged period during which he was tied up and left to perish without any shred of compassion or humanity. Despite being around one year old and getting along well with other dogs, he is still nervous around people, as can be expected. We owe Maria Daniela a debt of gratitude for her efforts and her decision to take action in this case. It is hard to believe, but many individuals faced with a similar situation choose to ignore it and remain apathetic towards the suffering of an innocent creature. Let us spread this tale of fortune among our closest acquaintances and disapprove of all forms of cruelty against animals. Everyone deserves a fresh start, a chance to live with respect and dignity.
