The woman, who residents of the Mexican city of Tijuana called Hole, is 65 years old. But she lives completely differently from an ordinary pensioner. Hole’s life turned out to be on the street. At the last expense of treated and fed, a flock of dogs spent many years with her.
At nights, the woman slept with the animals, who warmed her with their bodies. They were all huddled in a huge garbage bag. When the local police finally paid attention to the Mexican woman’s problem, she flatly refused to go with them.
No, she doesn’t romanticize her street lifestyle. She is afraid for her tailed friends. Moreover, one of the dogs soon should give birth to puppies, and Hole was afraid to leave the young mother and her babies to their fate.
As a result, the police and Hole agreed on a compromise: the woman began to go to spend the night in a special center, where there is a warm and normal bed. Then the woman met a volunteer named Alejandra Cordova Castro.
Castro understood that Hole would never leave his four-legged wards, so she began to look for compromise solutions. First, she bought all the necessary things for the woman: a normal mattress, water bottles, warm socks, and long-awaited dog food.
Secondly, she arranged for Hole to move to a special tent shelter. Now the woman has at least some roof over her head, and her dogs remain next to her. A day in this camp costs only 50 pesos, like a cup of cheap coffee.
Hole’s story became resonant in the local media and social media. Now the woman hopes that it will be possible to open a shelter for her pets and start to lead an absolutely normal life, and Alejandra continues to think about how to realize this dream of Hole.
