The comforting truth remains that each of these animals found salvation. Ben came into the compassionate care of Jeff Messenger, who patiently nourished the animal, gradually earning its trust.
Impelled by an animal rescue video, Messenger contacted Hope for Paws, a nonprofit rescue organization. Witnessing Ben’s persistent attempts to leap over the gate toward home, initial rescue efforts proved futile as he escaped repeatedly. Despite this, Ben consistently returned to the sanctuary. Eventually rescued, he found a new family.
In Greece, the dog rescue team arrived in the nick of time, rushing the animal to an emergency vet. Battling failing kidneys and infected eyes, the despondent dog, named Mario, became a recipient of love, aiding in his recovery.
Transferred to a DAR Animal Rescue facility when he regained some strength, Mario’s spirits lifted as he raised his head. Though mobility remained a challenge, his indomitable spirit resurfaced. Able to feed himself and eventually wagging his tail, Mario’s life ended not long after adoption. His traumatic journey had taken an irreparable toll, yet his final days were surrounded by solace and attentive care.
Following his flight, Cupid cautiously returned, only to find a stranger waiting. Speaking softly to the pup, the woman explained her mission—to offer help.

Despite lingering confusion, his wagging tail communicated gratitude for the love he received. The most recent update revealed that Cupid had received over four dozen adoption requests.
