Woman helps dogs – level 2

18-09-2015 07:00

This news is about dogs. In Peru, one woman runs a dog shelter. Her dog shelter helps dogs, who after being hit by cars, are paralysed.

The dog shelter doesn’t make the woman any money. She must rely on money which people give to her. She uses the money to buy the dogs food, toys and wheelchairs.

She cares for 50 dogs. Six of them are in wheelchairs. Hopefully, people will adopt them.

Difficult words: dog shelter (a safe place for dogs who need help), paralysed (to not be able to move some part of your body), to rely on (if you rely on something, you need it).

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

What do you think about these dogs?
