In the streets of Los Angeles, California, two dogs were dumped and left to die. No one saw who did it but the residents were convinced that it was someone who lived from another community. They rallied to get the dogs to safety but eventually called animal control when they failed to capture the dogs.
The officers caught one of the dogs and immediately transferred it to the care of the local animal shelter. They tried to get the other one, too, but they failed. The dog was too scared and it managed to escape.
Once animal control was gone, the remaining dog reappeared. It kept wandering around the neighborhood, probably in search of its friend. But before long, a Good Samaritan by the name of Miriam Caldwell spotted the pup. She lured it with food and secured it with a slip lead.
Miriam kept the dog safe in her yard while she sought help. She contacted the animal rescue group in the city called Hope For Paws and one of its head rescuers, JoAnn Wiltz, quickly agreed to help. She waited for her arrival and made sure the rescue mission would be an absolute success.
JoAnn was happy to know that the dog, now Maryanne, was safe in Miriam’s yard while she was on her way. She thanked her for her kind act and promised her that she will help the dog find a new loving family.
Miriam, meanwhile, spent time searching for Maryanne’s friend. She called a few animal shelters until she discovered where the pup ended. She waited for the stray hold to be over, and kept the JoAnn posted so they can reunite the dogs.
Unfortunately and fortunately, the Maryanne’s friend had been adopted before the rescuers got to reunite them. And so, JoAnn and her colleagues focused on finding Maryanne’s forever home instead.
With the help of L.A. Animal Rescue, Maryanne need not wait for so long. Within a couple of days, her new family came and picked her up. Despite her dark past, she was still fortunate because she found a new home in no time.
