It's easy to assume life on the street is hardest on stray animals. They've got to scrounge up food, water and dodge traffic, right? The heartbreaking truth is that our loveable cats and dogs' worst enemy can also be their "best friend".

Volunteers from the Ilioupolis Animal Welfare Union in Greece stumbled upon little "Shiver" just in time. For weeks, this growing puppy had been continuously chained up to an abandoned trailer. As she grew, the suffocating wire restraints cut deeper and deeper into her infected and bleeding neck and legs. Her shocked rescuers quickly freed her and nursed her back to health before finding newly-named "Jade" a loving family in Holland.
