There aren’t many things as heartbreaking as seeing an animal who knows nothing but a life of abuse and neglect. At the same time, there are few things as heartwarming as seeing that animal get the love and care they need.
This is Kelsey. She was a homeless stray, forced to wander the streets alone. She scrounged for food and was constantly put in harm’s way, navigating dangerous bridges and alleyways to stay alive. Finally, someone found her, and decided to save her life — documenting her journey the whole way through.
As the sun shone down on Kelsey’s body, it was easy to see just how bloody and battered her skin became while living on the streets. Instead of a white coat of healthy fur, Kelsey suffered sores and sunburns everywhere. Her body type and bulging ribs were a sign that she was starving to death.
You’d think a dog so neglected by society would fear humans, but nope — Kelsey eagerly hopped into her rescuers’ car, ready to begin a brand new chapter.
Though she was treated like dirt her entire life, Kelsey was open-hearted and gentle. Her kind eyes let her rescuers know that she was grateful for their help.
A medical team worked around the clock to provide Kelsey with all the care and supervision she needed. While cradled in the vet’s arms, it’s surprising to see how tiny she truly is.
She had a long road to recovery ahead, but Kelsey was on her way to a stunning transformation. Just look at this adorable face!
It didn’t take long for Kelsey to find comfort in her new human companions. Soon, she was introduced to the joys of cool shade, green grass, playtime, and relaxation. Now this, she could get used to.
Kelsey had also been missing out on social interaction with other dogs — but soon, canine friendships were budding, and Kelsey was coming out of her shell.
As her fur began to grow back and her sores healed up, Kelsey’s life only got better. Soft beds, regular feedings, afternoon naps… This is the life!
…And before her saviors knew it, Kelsey was a brand new dog! It’s hard to believe she was once standing on death’s doorstep.
Can you believe this is the same dog as before? It’s just incredible what a little love can do.
Kelsey no longer has to sleep alone on the streets. What a lovely result ♥
