She had driven those roads looking for strays many times before and had varying degrees of success. Sometimes, tragically, the dogs she found were no longer alive. But this time, something moving on the grass verge caught her eye, so she stopped to investigate.
Judy Obregon is no stranger to saving animals. In fact, she founded a rescue group called The Abandoned Ones (TAO) in 2010. Since then, she has been devoted to getting stray dogs off the streets and finding them forever homes.
The group doesn’t have a shelter itself. Instead, its rescued dogs are supported by foster families. It does, however, have a base of operations in Fort Worth Park, Texas. Unfortunately, the area is infamous locally for a practice that will horrify animal lovers.
