He was only three months old and very sick.  Severe mange had covered his whole body, and he was always hungry.  People constantly passed by, paying no attention to him and no one ever thought of helping him.  This all changed one warm summer day when Vafa Volunteers found him on the street corner and took him to the shelter.

At the shelter, because he was very small and needed special care, he was sent to a foster home.  His foster Mom was an active volunteer of Vafa who also had another dog.

Franky was washed regularly with a special shampoo. He had also received an injection for mange upon arrival at the shelter.  Slowly his skin condition improved, his soft fur grew and he turned into a very good looking boy.

Franky learned many tricks at his foster home, and he was lucky to be chosen to go to Canada.

In Canada, he stayed with a few foster Moms.  He was energetic, playful and not an easy dog to handle.  Eventually, he found a loving home, and he is very happy where he lives.

We wish that the number of caring families increases in our own country so that we can find good homes for all homeless dogs here!

Many good people participated in this rescue case.

Anonymous heroes who do not remain indifferent when they see pain and suffering of animals and helped courageously.

Would you be one of these people?
