Echo lake, Texas, has a sad reputation; it is known as aninfamous 'dumping ground'for dog abusers.Judy Obregon, founder of The Abandoned Ones(a foster based animal rescue organization)is all too familiar with the stories that give this location its notoriety, but in March was lucky enough to find a happy ending there.

She showed no sign of fear after her trauma, and was affectionate with her rescuer straight away.

Luckily, she had no serious injuries or infections, and with lots of love and attention would recover just fine.

Dogs like this make me cry all the time. They are just so forgiving. I can see it in her eyes.
My heart is for the voiceless. Animals can’t speak, so we are all they have.
