That’s why Judy Obregon of Fort Worth, Texas was inspired to establish The Abandoned Ones, a rescue organization dedicated to giving abandoned animals a new home. But when Judy pulled up to a known “dumping ground” for unwanted dogs one day, she was shocked by what she saw.
It was a new face, and her dire situation immediately tugged at Judy’s heartstrings…
Fort Worth, Texas resident Judy Obregon runs an animal rescue organization called The Abandoned Ones. Tired of seeing animals abandoned left and right, Judy decided to drive around the city’s most infamous “dumping ground” for deceased or abandoned animals in search of any she could rescue. One particular day, she pulled up to come face-to-face with a small, scared dog.
As Judy approached her, the dog immediately cried; she was neglected and desperately hungry. She limped toward Judy and immediately put her face in Judy’s hands, seemingly eager for the touch of a friendly human.
Judy noticed what appeared to be a shoestring or crude rope tied around the little dog’s neck; the other end was attached to the fence. Naming the pup Callie, Judy removed the rope and carefully coaxed her into her car.
As they drove away, Judy watched as Callie looked longingly back at the spot where she’d been tied, as though she were saying goodbye to her old life. Then she turned around and gave Judy a big kiss! It seemed as if she was ready to start anew.
Callie was taken to the veterinarian, who reported that she was in great health despite all she’d been through. Her initial limp had no serious implications, and her appetite was healthy. She was certainly glad to play with new toys!
Now, Callie has her sparkle back. She was placed in a foster home by The Abandoned Ones, and one day soon she will have a forever home. Who wouldn’t want to care for such a cute and playful dog like Callie?
