Nothing makes me more grateful this time of year than getting to go home after work to have a warm meal in my toasty apartment.
Come January, many people around the country just like me will find it hard to resist the temptation to crank up the heat, without even stopping to recognize how fortunate they are to afford this luxury.
As we can see in the following heartbreaking, although ultimately a triumphant story, many humans are not so lucky, but many animals living on the street have it far, far worse.
According to YouTube page Animal Advocates, a tiny puppy has escaped a certain death at the hands of a true monster during one of Canada’s bitter cold winters.
“Little Star was left to die, all alone, in a box, in the dark and in the freezing cold, her desperate cries muffled by a tight rubber band around her muzzle which rotted her lips,” Animal Advocates explained on YouTube. The poor Yorkie-Poo mix was just about three months old when an evil person left her for dead in the box, thinking no one would hear her cries.
Luckily, that didn’t happen and the tiny pup’s faint yelps were just loud enough for a hero to step in and notice. “Now she’s as alive as any dog can be,” the rescuers continued. “She has a family to play with, she sleeps in a warm bed every night, and she has Shawna who will ensure that she never suffers like that again.
