This is an incredibly sad and an incredibly happy story. It’s sad because it’s unbelievable such animal abusers exist in the world and how many dogs have to suffer because of them. But it’s also happy because of how many kind-hearted people there are, willing to step up and help these dogs in need.
This story will make you cry of sadness, anger and happiness at the same time. But you’ll be glad it has a happy ending.

Angel is a dog rescued at the beginning of December of 2014 who was purposely starved and on the edge of dying. And today, 11 months later she had a transformation almost impossible to believe in and she has found a loving home. And all thanks to the rescue group Rescue from the Hart who fought for her like true heroes.
This is Angel’s story…
On December 6th, the rescue group got a message from a woman named Kay Buell (aka Sherre Faught) saying she had just found a very sick dog stumbling down the side of the road and that she had just brought her home. Kay Buell, an allegedly dog rescuer and a foster for many other rescue dogs, was asking for their help to save the dog.
Four months later the awful truth got out: Kay Buell was the one responsible for Angel’s condition. She was revealed as an animal abuser and one of the worst. After a raid performed at her house, the police discovered a house full of starving dogs. A dead dog was found on her trash and two more died within days of the discovery. The rest are still recovering.
Her house was full of bags of dog’s food and treats. She was starving them purposely and killed dozens of other dogs. A case was built against her and now she’s in jail facing 14 counts of felony animal cruelty. Her case is still open but hopefully she will stay there for many years.
Rescue from the Hart had a really difficult challenge but they made a promise to Angel to do everything in their hands to save her. And they did.
At first Angel couldn’t even hold her head, her organs were almost completely shut down, she had to be fed small portions of food and she needed to borrow strength for everything.
Little by little she got stronger and as her body was gaining life, so did her spirit. According to the Rescue from the Hart group, she has to be one of the most important rescue stories they’ve been a part of. One to be proud of.
If you want to help them, you can donate some money so they can continue with their great work. Just enter their website and ask for information. Or at least you can share Angel’s story to keep on fighting the abusers.
Here’s an incredible video of Angel’s transformation. Watch until the end. It’s totally worth it!
