We all enjoy happy endings, but as with any tale, we must also consider the difficult beginning, which says merely something.
This is the tale of Cala, a mechanic’s guard dog in San Jose, Costa Rica, who was pitifully restrained to a chain so short that she was unable to breathe or rest her head. She was malnourished and in bad health, with sores.
She was thankfully saved and brought to the Territorio de Zaguates shelter, where she is now gradually healing. But Cala encountered still another challenge. People with little compassion attempted to break into the shelter and feed the dogs poisoned sausages.
16 dogs died as a result, and Cala experienced neurological issues. We are pleased that she has finally found a family that will treat her well and encourage her to restore her faith in others after conquering the obstacles. View the photos below to learn more about Cala’s heartwarming tale.
