Woman sees ‘dead dog’ lying on side of road, then realizes she still has time to save him


Every single day, Judy Obregon Rossell ventures to a site in Echo Lake of Fort Worth, Texas that is known for being a popular spot where people dump unwanted animals. Judy checks to see if there are any scared and lonely dogs who are in need of food, healthcare, and a new home.

Sometimes she gets there in time to save them, and other times it’s too late and she finds poor dogs who have passed on after being left for dead.

Thankfully when she came across Mercy, she wasn’t too late.

Though Mercy was still alive, she was in bad shape with fractures and broken bones that required a specialized surgery.

“Unfortunately we do not know what happened to Mercy and can only assume the worse based on her injuries,” Judy wrote on Facebook. “It is disturbing that Mercy had to deal with evil people at such a young age, I don’t even want to think about it!!! The area in which she was found in has a history of many discarded souls ( dead and alive).”

Thanks to The Abandoned Ones “Saving Animals in Danger”, or TAO, they were able to raise funds to pay for Mercy’s surgery, which cost a few thousand dollars.

“Mercy has the sweetest soul that I can’t imagine the pain she endured, the fear of laying in the ditch she was found in,” Mercy said. “Dumped and ignored as she laid there in pain.”

Judy is the founder and CEO of TAO. They rescue animals, sometimes from unspeakable horrors.


As we mentioned before, Judy often finds abandoned dogs at the dumping ground that just don’t make it. But what’s even worse is that sometimes these dogs are mutilated and/or tortured before they are dumped.

The signs of abuse some of these dogs appear to have suffered are just unthinkable. But thanks to Judy and the TAO, some of those dogs don’t have to continue suffering.

“You know that is one thing about animals I so love is that they are so loving and resilient regardless of what evil humans do to them,” Judy said.

Judy is basically a dog rescue angel. Sent from heaven to save to dogs, heal them, and love them.
