Every rescue that takes place is as unique as the dog that
is rescued. This is the story of Veto.
hart recieved a telephone call
from a field volunteer that had identified a dog in need. This dog
was Veto and he was a stray.
For over one hour, hart rescue volunteers were unable to
physically reach Veto. Due to fear, Veto managed to position his
body between a concrete wall and a concrete beam. The sun had set
and volunteers had limited light, making his rescue more
complicated than anticipated.
Rescuers worked for over two hours attempting to tie a
rope around Veto to pull him out. The darkness, debris under the
concrete, and small opening made it very difficult.
After almost three hours, rescuers were able to tie
rope around Veto. To ensure Veto's safety, rescuers slowly started
to pull the terrified dog to safety.
Upon rescue, Veto was transported to the hart
intake home late at night. Veto arrived full of fear, stomach
irritation, anxiety, and fleas. During the intake each dog recieves
a fully body exam, necessary medication, hart ID, and
Within a few minutes, Veto fully succumbed to
a vounteers kind touch.
Upon intake, Veto was transported to his foster
home. Veto is currently up for adoption. Without hart, his
story would have ended differently.
