According to the International League of the rights of Animals, “All animals are born with an equal claim on life, are entitled to respectful treatment, and have the right to live freely in their natural environment.” We humans choose to reside in the best of houses, eat quality food and also demand a lot of respect from everyone. However, the minute it comes to giving the same respect to animals, we all just blank out. Homeless animals are a huge problem all over the world. This post is also about such homeless underprivileged animals, but destiny decided to put an end to their miseries. God sent some kind angels called Jeff and Diana Hall. The Halls were on a holiday, and an encounter with these homeless dogs and cats was not at all part of their agenda. What they did when they met these animals will bring a tear to your eye. Here’s what they did…
1. The Halls were enjoying a vacation in La Paz, Mexico, where they met several stray dogs and cats, who displayed bad health along with undernourishment.
2. ‘Camp Bow Wow’ an organization in Burnsville, is owned by this couple. The Halls tried to get these dogs placed in a local shelter, but it seems fate had other plans when they found out that the place was full.
3. The Halls wrote on their fundraising website, “There was no way to bring any of them back with us due to regulations and requirements. We provided food and water for them daily, but felt helpless not being able to do more.”
4. “We counted 34 in total: 8 puppies about 3-4 weeks old, 5 puppies about 14 weeks old, 14 adult dogs and 7 cats.”
5. The Halls admitted that all the animals were very united, and they also went on to say, “We couldn’t believe how they all got along! They were well behaved and very friendly.”
6. “It took a while for a couple of them to trust us, but in the end they were all happy to eat out of our hands — even the toughest little guy finally came around.”
7. Baja 34 pack is how they are addressed now. A funding organization has also been created for them—‘Baja 34 Rescue Project’
8. Through a well-known website, GoFundMe, the Halls are raising money for health and maintenance of these adorable animals. They have now been taken to Minnesota where they will hopefully be adopted by loving new families.
9. The Halls are determined to “raise funds to help this pack of stray dogs and cats.” Their current aim is to “find their forever families in the state of Minnesota!”.
10. All the contribution received is used solely for these animals; a lot of these animals have already found their forever homes.
11. The compassionate Halls wrote on a website, “Each and every one of these dogs and cats are well behaved and would make wonderful family pets. Although they are starving for food, it was apparent they are also starving for love.”
12. The Halls are role models and an inspiration for all of us. They are in the true sense God’s angels.
