When Maria Adams spotted a group of homeless dogs roaming around on a patch of wasteland, she couldn’t let the opportunity to take them pass her by. So she rushed back home to collect her car, before luring all 27 of them into her vehicle.
Adams hails from the city of Hemet in California. One day in January 2018, she was enjoying her usual morning walk. Her journey took her through the streets and past an abandoned lot on Santa Fe Street.
