Homeless animals have enough to do. Finding adequate shelter, food and clean water is hard enough. It is dangerous enough for healthy dogs, but imagine what it means for a paralyzed dog! It would be impossible. However, one dog, later named Kuya Bon, fought to survive despite his disability. When his owner found him useless after a car accident, he had to fend for himself.
Kuya Bon’s insensitive owner could not handle a dog that needed so much care. He kicked him out of the only home he knew. He had been living on the streets for a long time when he was discovered by a caring person. He had to endure many rainy days, especially during the monsoons. It’s a miracle he survived this long.
A kind woman saw the dog from a distance and went to get a bowl of food for Kuya Bon. She went to him and put the bowl on the ground. She wanted to see how bad his legs were. Kuya Bon approached the bowl and ate happily, though with difficulty. The woman knew that he urgently needed veterinary care. She would spend her own money to help him.
While waiting for Kuya Bon to be x-rayed, the woman called a local rescue worker. She asked him for help as she could not hold Kuya Bon and was not allowed to return to the street. The rescuer agreed. Kuya Bon is currently recovering at the veterinary clinic. We don’t know where he will end up, but one thing is certain. He no longer belongs on the streets!
