Woman helps dogs – level 1

18-09-2015 07:00

This news is about dogs. Cars hit the dogs. Some dogs are then paralysed.

These dogs need help. A woman from Peru helps them. She has a dog shelter. She helps fifty dogs. Six of the dogs are in wheelchairs.

The dog shelter makes no money, but it needs money. It must buy food, toys and wheelchairs for the dogs. People give money to the dog shelter.

Difficult words: paralysed (when you cannot move a part of your body), dog shelter (a safe place for dogs who need help), wheelchair (a chair which can move – paralysed people use this; the dogs have something like this, too).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about these dogs?
