After Zelda was abandoned in the middle of a remote canyon, she roamed around for two weeks, with no way to escape the dust and heat, just waiting for someone to help her. Finally, some passersby noticed the poor pit bull wandering all alone, and contacted someone who they knew could help.
Hope for Paws got the call about Zelda and immediately drove out to the canyon to look for her. Coyotes, cars and extreme heat are all dangers that poor Zelda faced being on her own, and rescuers knew they had to act fast in order to save her. They found her resting on a tiny strip of dirt next to the road, in a little patch of shade, trying her best to escape the heat.
