DAR Animal Rescue came to the rescue of a stray dog who went into a yard to seek some shelter and kindness. The poor dog had gotten badly injured by an illegal trap but thankfully a Good Samaritan reached out to the Greek dog rescue.

Ermioni, co-founder of the rescue, was able to coax the dog over to her and into a crate so they could rush her to a vet.

“We named her Hope and she was found in a village,” Ermioni later said. Hope was hurt by a wire snare trap that “humans place around the villages for wild pigs.”

The Good Samaritan who found her cut one end of the metal wire but Ermioni marvelled at how the other end was frayed and cut through. Did the dog chew it? Hope’s rescuers will never know but it’s not the first time they’ve found dogs ensnared by these nasty wire traps.

Sadly, DAR Animal Rescue could not get any information as to who placed the illegal trap. “No witness, no information about that crime ever came even though we published it and asked people, and even though we go to the police every time,” they wrote on their YouTube channel.

Hope’s gash around her neck was pretty gruesome but the vet treated it and did multiple surgeries to clean and close the wound.

Two weeks later, Hope’s surgery was a success. What a relief!

The kind man who found and helped Hope will now foster her as DAR Animal Rescue does not have room at their shelter.

Hope is still scared and will be for a long time, says Ermioni. That’s because even though her physical wounds are healing, the wounds of the soul take a long time.

But Hope already looks more at ease in the familiar yard and she will have someone looking after her. Says Ermioni, “She is safe. Our job is done.”
