If you see a homeless, helpless animal in need in your neighborhood, would you rush to their rescue?
Many people would want to do something to help in such a situation, but the truth is that it can be too dangerous for an untrained animal lover. That’s why we’re so grateful for the amazing heroes of rescue organizations like Viktor Larkhill, who go above and beyond the call of duty to give stray badly injured stray dogs a second chance at life.
Many times, abandoned or stray animals on the street will be mixed breed dogs, like pit bulls or terriers. It’s not very common to find a homeless dog such as a golden retriever, who are well-known for being great house pets.
In the following clip from amazing animal rescuer Larkhill, we see heroes have their work cut out for them with poor Samson who was left blind in both eyes. According to Larkhill, the elderly and eyesight-impaired dog’s family abandoned him at a kill shelter.
“He was going to die unless someone rescued him. We couldn´t let it happen,” the rescuer wrote on YouTube.
“We rescued Samson, we took him to our hospital where he was operated from his eyes as well as a chronic infection on his ears. And then, after a long wait, we found a family for him so we took him to Germany…”
