The beachside city of Cartagena is a huge tourist attraction on the coast of Columbia. With all of the people coming and going, you can’t help but wonder how a starving dog could be completely ignored.
But that was the case for Saori, even when sitting directly in front of the police station.
>A local was walking along the beach when she noticed the starving dog in front of the police station.
Violeta Barrero decided to take action and make a Facebook post. Cartagena Paws, a local rescue, saw the post and wanted to help as well.
“Could someone with a car please help us, we need someone who is willing to drive us to Playa Blanca to pick up this poor dog up and bring him to the clinic. I will never understand how people can go to Playa Blanca and see a dog in such a horrible state and continue to eat their lunch and not even share a bite of food with the dog. It is inhumane!”
They went to pick up Saori and bring her back to the shelter.
After a checkup and medicated bath, they really saw just how skinny she was.
