Animal Rescue Worker Searches For Stray Dog That Touched Her Heart

Yvette Holzbach, continually returns to a street in Houston, Texas known for unwanted dogs. She runs a rescue called the Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward and tries to save as much money as possible. She had an experience earlier this month, that brought her face to face with a common history.

Holzbach wrote on her Facebook page, "When I first saw this dog lying on this tattered and torn soft toy my first reaction was, 'Oh how cute is that?'"

Her next reaction was thoughtful as she continued to write, "Reality sunk in once I started taking the picture. Here is a stray dog taking comfort in a worn-out, discarded toy." Unfortunately, she couldn't take the dog that day as the rescue didn't have any space. Many on Facebook were angry about this and criticized her for leaving the animal behind.

She wrote, "We are always faced with the dilemma of deciding which dog to send out a plea of help for. This dog absolutely broke my heart but it was a dog that was in relatively good shape and unfortunately, the sad truth is, a dog in this condition would be much harder to find a foster for than any others we find in worse shape."

On Tuesday, she rushed back to look for the abandoned dog--she could not find any sign of him or his toy. But, she will continue to search for him. As she searches, perhaps this can teach us all a lesson that animals are not to be used up and discarded.
