It’s heartbreaking to see dogs being abandoned by their previous owners. They were left in their last home or brought in a faraway place where they cannot find their way back home. We might never fully understand the reason for the abandonment, but we hope that the previous owners should’ve given the dog to a friend who will love it or surrendered the dog to a shelter where they can help in finding a forever home.
Thankfully, there are Good Samaritans out there who care about the welfare of the abandoned dogs. They would go the extra mile just to make sure that the dogs are safe.
In California, Lisa Snyder is one person who cares so much about animals. She owns three cats and lives in an inoperable van. Lisa is experiencing tough times too, but she maintains her positive attitude towards life.
One day, while walking at the Point Fermin Lighthouse in San Pedro, California, Lisa saw a dog tied on a post. The dog seems terrified. He does not want any people to go near him.
Hours have passed, and the dog was still tied to the post. Lisa got near the dog, and she saw a note on the dog’s collar. The dog’s name is Joey, and he is looking for a new home.
Eventually, Lisa was able to get Joey’s affection. She was able to untie Joey and looked for a police officer who can help the poor dog. Sadly, there is no police officer in the vicinity. She was forced to walk three miles going to the nearest shelter.
Forte Animal Rescue took Joey in and helped him find a forever home.
The community of San Pedro learned about Lisa’s good deed. They organized a fundraiser to help her get back on her feet. They were able to raise $3590 good enough to have her van repaired. She stayed at a cheap hotel while the repair was being done.
Right now, Joey was able to find a forever home. He has a new best friend. He always plays in the yard.

If not for Lisa, Joey would’ve ended in a darker path.
Thank you, Lisa, for saving Joey and taking the extra mile to keep him safe!
