Tania Cappelluti is a founding member of the Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue. It is a non-profit organization founded in 2009, based in North Carolina. While traveling to Costa Rica to expand their humanitarian mission, she encountered a stray dog that became emotional when she tried to help her.
Tania was driving when she noticed a little black dog by the side of the road. She looked so weak and thin. A rescue advocate, she naturally stopped to check on the dog’s condition. Tania then got out of her car and walked over to the other side.
When the dog saw her approaching, she suddenly collapsed to the ground and tears fell from her eyes. She started whining as well. It was as if she was calling out for help and was happy that someone was there to give it to her.
Tania could easily see that she was exhausted and most likely dehydrated. She got some water and gave it to the poor dog and even got some crackers for her to feed on. The dog quickly went for the water although she could barely hold herself up.
The kind lady knew the dog badly needed help. Aside from being weak, she was also completely covered with ticks and fleas.
after she had some food and drink, she took the dog from the ground and placed her on the bed of her truck. She then got started working on finding her a home.
Using the network of her organization, and the power of social media, they partnered with a local rescue group. They were able to successfully find temporary housing for the dog, which they named Gaia. She was taken to a community farm where she would stay until they can find her a permanent place to live in.
And only a short time after, a French woman living in Puerto Jimenez fell in love with Gaia and adopted her. Gaia is now happier than ever and living in a great home where she is well cared for.
