When the fire broke out and everyone had to evacuate, an elderly lady delayed to cut loose her two dogs. While her house was burning down around her, she freed her pregnant dog, Gamja, and started cutting loose her other dog, Bada, who was barking loudly. However, overcome with exhaustion, she fell and wasn’t able to get back up. Her two dogs didn’t leave her side.
Go save yourselves! Run!
With the little strength she had left, she managed to nudge and kick the dogs to try and get them to escape, but Gamja and Bada insisted on staying with her.
If they hadn’t been rescued in time, Gamja might have given birth in a pile of ashes. As it was, she gave birth prematurely in our head office to 6 pups the second day after being rescued.
The elderly lady is receiving medical treatment, and has asked us to find Bada and Gamja a home where they will be taken good care of.
Gamja is currently being looked after at CARE’s head office, while Bada is undergoing treatment for corneal damage and heartworms.
