Wherever there is darkness, there is light, wherever there are villains, there are heroes.
This latter contrast was proven irrefutably when four young boys from Detroit’s 7 Mile neighborhood went above and beyond to rescue a dog in desperate need of help.
Brothers Kenny, Kenneth and Kevin Dancy, along with their friend Andrew Daniels, were going about their business helping a local woman who was moving, when they came across a scene that would have shocked no one. any adult.
Our heroes of the day! Young dog rescuers who start early. These adorable kids rescued this dog who had been abandoned on bungee cords and kept her safe until we could pick her up.
They discovered an abandoned dog tied to the back of a house with bungee cords. Emaciated and shivering from the exposure, the poor pup was in serious bad shape.
The boys knew they had to act fast. They wrapped the dog in a winter coat to keep him warm, before releasing him from his bonds and taking him to their house to feed and drink. They called her Sparkle.
Fate would have them encounter members of the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue as they walked Sparkle around the neighborhood.
They told the dog’s story to the men, who believed that Sparkle also suffered from mange. The organization took her in for veterinary care, taking the time to post heartfelt thanks in a Facebook video that called the boys “heroes”.
“You could see they really liked this dog,” said Theresa Sumpter, the organization’s founder.
“They were protective of the dog and wanted to make sure the dog was going to a good place.”
Our sweet baby Sparkles, who was just rescued, tested negative for scabies! Yeah !
After Sparkle was tested at the shelter, it turned out she didn’t have scabies. That means she could be fast-tracked to adoption. Pet Tales Rescue, a sister organization, oversaw the process, placing Sparkles with a foster mom who would give her all the love she needed.
Meanwhile, the four young boys, who have been widely praised for their compassion, have also rescued two other dogs in the same neighborhood. Also through Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue, they were able to take street dogs to the vet for treatment.
