Tim Gorski, animal activist and filmmaker, was headed to Taktsang Palphug Monastery tucked away in the Himalayan cliffs in Bhutan. He didn’t make it. Along the way, he spotted a dog in need of help. The dog had severe mange, and immediate action was needed. Mange is a skin disease that is caused by parasitic mites, it can cause extreme itching and irritation.
The rescue center Bhutan Animal Rescue and Care was called, and they rushed out to help. The Maya Foundation, a no-kill and non-profit shelter that is run by all volunteers took over the care of the dog.
They named the dog Tim, in honor of Gorski. In just a few weeks, Tim was a different dog!
