Workers near the town of Suwalki in Poland were walking on a forest road when they began to hear a scared bark.
The workers walked in the direction of the barking and came across a shocking sight. They found a dog completely trapped in a puddle of tar.
The poor little puppy barked as loud as he could and he was clearly afraid. The workers tried to get the dog out, but he was completely stuck. For example, one of the workers called Joanna Godlewska, an animal rescuer from the Niczyje Animal Foundation.
Godlewska rushed to the wooded area to help the dog.
“When I finally arrived and saw a dog lying in the tar, tears came to my eyes,” Godlewska told Dodo.
Godlewska decided to name the dog park. She supposed that Farcik was abandoned in the woods and had gone in search of a warm place to lie down. He chose the tar puddle, not knowing how dangerous it was.
Godlewska knew she had to work quickly to free Farcik. It was clear that the dog could not extend it much longer.
Godlewska called the fire department and using a ton of dish soap, they released the dog. The dog calmed down when the firefighters and Godlewska rubbed his fur with soap – he seemed to realize they were there to help him.
“He understood we were saving him,” said Godlewska.
After using several bottles of soap, Godlewska finally managed to get Farcik out of the tar.
Once Farcik was free, Godlewska took him to the vet. There, he was treated for exhaustion. He also received treatment for some superficial wounds on the side of the face. The vet also finished cleaning little Farcik – at the end of the appointment, he felt much better.
Godlewska brought Farcik home and gave him all the love and attention he deserved.
“He feels better and better,” said Godlewska.
Farcik went back to the vet a few times for other cleansing sessions. With Godlewska’s love and attention, he became stronger and stronger.
Farcik is also learning to trust people again. Once he’s strong enough, Godlewska will start looking for the right home forever.
“I just wanted to save him,” said Godlewska. “Thank you to everyone who saved this dog.”
Farcik nearly lost his life in the tar puddle, but thankfully, caring people came at the right time. We are delighted that Farcik is doing well!
