As someone who lives in a big city, it’s tough for me to imagine a dog on the street in desperate need of veterinary care and no one stepping up to try and help.
At the very least, any normal person would call animal control or a local rescue organization. Yet as we’ve seen time and time again, there are countless dogs around the country who are living in absolute squalor, are being abused by their owners, and face horrible health issues, which are often the result of inbreeding, like you can see in this heartbreaking story of three siblings.
We know that sometimes a real transformation story has to be very bad before it gets good, but many times you don’t hear about the dogs who are rescued from such terrible situations on the news or other TV shows. That’s why Meredith Vieira decided to shed some light on this dark corner of animal rescue and team up with some heroes who are used to getting down and dirty to save the lives of helpless dogs.
In the following video, Meredith and a team from Animal Aid USA head down to rural Georgia, where they find animals in pretty horrific situations. Luckily, they knew exactly what to do from there.
