We’ve seen stories of neglect and recovery before, but the amazing story of transformation and love for little Angel the rescue dog may bring a tear to your eye.

Sidewalk Specials is a rescue organization in Cape Town. According to their website, it was started by a “British actress who’s (sic) life has gone to the dogs.” The organization “has come about to rescue as many dogs as possible, using a network of Fosters and Social Media to re home (sic) saved dogs & to wake the general public up.”


Recently, Sidewalk Specials found a dog subjected to tear-jerking neglect and abuse. The organization “confiscated” the dog, Angel, from the owners, according to their YouTube description of the animal’s recovery. As we see in the video, Angel had terrible, painful burn marks all over her body, as well as having mange.

Upon rescue, Angel almost immediately began to show signs that she was, despite being treated so horribly, a loving and happy animal. As she arrived at the shelter, Angel the rescue dog was greeted with a fluffy bed. Angel dives right in and nestles her way into the covers. Sidewalk Specials swiftly began the rehabilitation process for Angel, treating her burns and mange, and after a couple of months, the transformation is simply stunning.

Angel was eventually adopted into a loving forever home where she has two brothers, and two cat companions. Angel gets plenty of treats and kisses and will never be subjected to the kind of cruelty she faced before.
