In the midst of the hustle and bustle of New York, Elysia Caris heard something. Soft cries echoed from a sliver of space beneath a gate. Caris peered inside to find a helpless animal, one she’d spend hours trying to save.
Caris didn’t have pets, but on October 17, 2018, she proved she had a soft spot for animals in need. On that day, the New York resident was making her way home from her job when she heard a noise.
The echoing cries were soft, but, after looking around, Caris figured out where they were coming from. She noticed a small opening and a crawl space beneath a nearby gate. Then, she saw a tiny peach-colored paw poke out from the same hole.
