Someone reached out to the rescuers of Villalobos Rescue Center. The person was concerned about the dog that he saw taking shelter in a dump under a bridge.
Two rescuers responded to the call and rushed to the reported area. The two rescuers have never been to that part of the city, which made the drive twice as long. Since they were not familiar with the area, they wanted to slow down as well so they won’t miss the dog.
They stopped their vehicle when they spotted the dog in the dumpster. The rescuers can tell that the dog used to have an owner because they can see his collar from afar.
They are hoping that the canine is microchipped so they can reunite it to its owner. Before they check, though, they would need to gain the dog’s trust.
They gave the dog some treats and took their time to capture the dog. The rescue team did not want to scare it away. The rescuer’s strategy was to lure the dog inside the kennel.
This took a while since the dog was very hesitant even when offered some food. After a couple of tries, one of the rescuers was finally able to close the door to the kennel.
The rescuers from Villalobos Rescue Center were finally able to bring the dog to the shelter. They checked her microchip and contacted her previous owner.
Unfortunately, the dog who was named Olive was given away to another family. Her first owners had no idea how to contact the family that they gave Olive to.
Olive’s situation is not uncommon. Some families would get dogs, have them microchipped, and give them away.
Thankfully, Olive has a team of rescuers at Villalobos Rescue Center. They will take care of her and do the best they can to give her a home.
