Meet Lilica, a street dog who was abandoned in front of a junkyard in one of So Paulo’s worst neighborhoods. Many homeless humans and animals live here, including dogs, cats, and chickens, all of whom are joined in their poverty and doing their best to aid one another.
Lilica, despite being a stray dog, is a shining example of love and kindness. A homeless dog’s life is never easy, but she always makes sure that her kids and companions are fed.
She goes 4 miles each night along dark and perilous roads to the home of animal lover Lucia Helena De Souza, who provides her a food bag. After that, she returns to the junkyard to provide food for the rest of her ‘family’ — a dog, a cat, several hens, and a mule, all of whom have grateful hearts.
Lover of animals Lucia saw Lilica for the first time three years ago as the dog was hunting for food near her home. Lucia fed the dog, and the dog began returning every night to obtain her ration. They developed a daily routine: Lucia would make an extra amount for Lilica, and they would meet at 9 p.m. to share hugs, cuddles, and a hot dinner.
She spotted Lilica staring at the bag of food instead of finishing it one night. Lucia closed the plastic bag, and Lilica took it and walked away as usual after a few seconds. Lucia followed the dog and discovered something that thrilled her heart: Lilica shared food with her family even when she was hungry.
The dog has been doing this for three years, and even after being adopted, she returns every night to feed the other animals. She only wants to ensure that no one goes hungry. What a fantastic story!
Let’s give a big round of applause for Lilica, for her kind heart and for all animal lovers, such as Professor Lucia Helena, who gave her food and cared for her.
