Volunteers from The American Street Cat, Inc. (TASC) in Texas regularly make a trip to rescue stray cats in nearby places. But little did the volunteers know that one day they would also extend help to a stray dog.
One day, while doing a cat operation in the Houston area, a concerned citizen approached Kathryn Walton, the group’s founder. The concerned citizen gave Kathryn very startling news about a dog who got struck by a car. The person responsible immediately ran off the crime scene. Fortunately, a good Samaritan stopped and extended help to the poor pooch.
When Kathryn heard about this dilemma, she did not think twice about extending assistance to the injured pooch. This is why they rushed the pooch to a nearby clinic to have his wounds treated. At the clinic, the vet who checked on the pooch saw different issues with the pooch after the accident.
The vet said that the dog had multiple pelvic fractures and a trauma-caused liver issue due to the accident. Apart from these two fatal injuries, the dog also had heartworm. It appeared that the pooch was stray because he has no microchip in his body or any proof of identity.
Even with this dilemma, Kathryn never left the dog’s side. Kathryn waited until the dog felt good before she left the clinic. Eventually, Kathryn and her team agreed to make the pooch their honorary street dog. This means that Kathryn and her team would ensure that the dog is healthy.
After the pooch recovered from the injuries, Kathryn brought the pooch with her. Kathryn is sure that the pooch is a stray, so no one would look for him. Kathryn then let the pooch join them in most of their cat rescues in the nearby vicinities.
