Heroic Man’s Quest to Save a Dog from Death’s Door



Wilson Martins Coitinho is a real hero.  He’s not an officer of the law or a soldier fighting in a war; he’s a hero that rescues dogs from the brink of death.  The following photos are on the graphic side, so viewer discretion is advised.

He not only managed to get an emaciated and very sick dog off the streets, but brought the dog back to full health.  The dog is currently staying with Coitinho, and is recovering quite nicely.  All of it thanks to this heroic man, and the medical care staff that helped treatments go smoothly.  All of them are very heroic people, and deserve some recognition for their efforts.

If you were to ask Mr. Coitinho what the reasons behind the effort are, he simply says, “Rescuing and rehabilitating injured and abused animals is just my thing.”

If you would like to see the full set of photos taken over time of Coitinho and the dog (there are many!), you can click here.  Quite a few of the photos are graphic, but they are so worth it to see this amazing transformation unfold.

    What a wonderful man. I truly believe he will be rewarded for selfless act of kindness. In a world where it seems human kindness is almost non-exsistant, it is a great feeling to read a story like this. God Bless you,
