The animal was being fed by one of the center’s employees but seemed to be in a bad way. Two volunteers from the charity, Lisa Arturo and JoAnn Wiltz, aproached the dog cautiously, tempting it with treats.

Nicknamed Duncan, the old dog was also blind and had clearly had a tough life. Lisa and JoAnn carefully and slowly put a collar around his neck, before trying to get him to come out from his hiding place.

After a good bath, the dog completely changed colour, losing all the dirt and dust that had accumulated on his skin over the year. He then started to show affection towards his rescuers.
