When Valinda Cortez first saw a dog alone in a North Carolina parking lot, shivering from the cold and the rain, she knew what had happened right away. The poor pup had almost certainly been dumped right onto the asphalt and abandoned, and she had totally given up on everything.
Even though Valinda was only wearing pajamas and flip-flops—definitely not appropriate rain attire—she instinctively rushed out of her car to help. Over the course of the next few hours, she worked to gain the dog’s trust with the hope she could rescue her before it was too late.
What a happy ending! Thankfully Cassie was adopted, but there are other dogs at the same shelter who could still use a new home.
