We hear a lot about dogs’ loyalty, but this one shows that it may be two-sided. A 65-year-old homeless woman was seen on the streets of Tijuana, Mexico, sheltering under a black plastic bag from the rain and cold. The large waste bag turned out to be an improvised shelter for her and her six dogs. Despite the fact that Luz Maria Olmedo Beltran, also known as “Chole,” has been living on the streets for eight years, she is more concerned with the well-being of her dogs than her own. They provide her with safety, warmth, and, most importantly, love and companionship.
The horrifying sight, captured by photographer Omar Camarillo, devastated hearts online not just because of the unimaginable conditions in which an elderly woman must live, but also as a testament to the fact that those who have the least provide the finest example of unconditional love and compassion.
A 65-year-old homeless woman was spotted in a garbage bag with 6 dogs on the streets of Tijuana
The local police tried for half an hour to persuade “Chole” to go to a shelter, but she refused.
The policemen tried for half an hour to persuade the woman to accept their assistance and remain at a shelter, but she broke down in tears since she didn’t want to leave her loyal pals behind. Because animals are not permitted at the shelter, she decides to remain outside at all times.
Because animals are not allowed within the shelter, “Chole,” who has been living on the streets for eight years, prefers to stay outside with her dogs.
If she was transported to a shelter, the woman was afraid the dogs would be left alone. She told the cops, “I don’t want to go, I don’t need help, I’m good here.” “Chole” couldn’t forsake her six devoted pals, one of whom was expecting a child. They only had each other, after all.
The cops couldn’t leave her out in the cold and danger, so they ultimately persuaded her to seek refuge for the night.
Apparently, “Chole” spent the night at her son’s place, but was back on the streets the next day
Following the sorrowful story’s global success, a caring local woman decided to assist “Chole.”
Alejandra Cordova Castro was moved by the story and decided to assist “Chole” with anything she and the dogs require: water, food, blankets, stockings, and so on. It’s a small, kind gesture that means a lot to the old woman who is struggling to make ends meet in her harsh reality.
The story got a lot of attention online, but Alejandra was actually the first one to help, and she encourages others to do the same
Alejandra Cordova Castro shared her nice deed on Facebook not to draw recognition to herself, but to encourage others to help in any way they can, even offering to carry it. In Tijuana, “Chole” is located between Constitución and Baja California.
Alejandra remarked, “She said thank you so many times that she made me cry.”
“Chole” now stays at the shelter for 50 pesos a day. It’s in a very bad condition, but at least her furry family is together
“I was astounded by the woman’s living situation. Despite her many flaws, I was able to see that ‘La Chole’ has a kind heart because she protects animals,” photographer Omar Camarillo told Bored Panda.
Despite life’s harsh treatment of her, “Chole” has a kind heart and hopes that the government would grant a space to her so that she can continue to rescue dogs.
