Susanna the Rottweiler had been heartlessly left for dead in mid-2018 at an infamous spot in South Florida where natives of that state dump all sorts of unwanted items. But this unfortunate living creature had been left in a terrible condition. Rendered lame, starving and close to death, Susanna was not in a good way; indeed, things looked bleak for her. But then a good Samaritan came across the abandoned animal – which proved to be the first step on the pupper’s remarkable road to recovery.
Isabel Zapata is a fervent animal lover who originally hails from Colombia but now lives in Miami, FL. The energetic 50-something is forever trying to do her best for any furry creatures in the city who may be in need of assistance. “Caring for animals isn’t what I DO; it’s who I AM,” she proudly declares on her Facebook page.
As part of her altruistic efforts, Zapata regularly patrols a semi-rural local location called Redland on the south-west margins of Miami. And she pays particular attention to a notorious dumping ground in the district where feckless people often abandon their pets. On May 8, 2018, Zapata was scanning the area when she came across a truly heartbreaking sight.
