Just before the holidays, Marrista Melendez was caught in a car crash. She was in the vehicle with her father, and her sister and her partner were in the next car over. But then she saw her sister’s car start to veer too far to the right, then slam toward the left, hitting another vehicle and causing a chain reaction.
Melendez was fighting consciousness as a vehicle collided with her own, and she remembers a stranger, a woman, approaching the car. She couldn’t hear her dad, but she heard her new puppies yipping in the back. The woman then reached for the puppies, telling Melendez they were okay and she was going to hold on to them for her.
When Melendez woke up, she got the awful news. Her dad had passed away, and the woman had stolen her puppies. She waited and waited for the woman to contact her like she said she would, but no call came.
Desperate for news, she posted an ad on Craigslist—and days later, the right person saw it.
