Woman sleeps in bin bags and refuses to go to a homeless shelter because they won’t let her bring her dogs

A 65-year-old homeless woman was found sleeping in bin bags on the streets of Tijuana, Mexico, with her six dogs.

Chloe has been homeless for about 8years now and has lived in a garbage bag on the street with her six dogs.

The elderly woman, who has a son, refuses to go to a homeless shelter as they won’t accept her beloved pets.

When Chloe’s lifestyle went viral, local police effortlessly tried to persuade Chloe to go to a shelter, but she repeatedly declined. The Municipal police, according to Omar, spent roughly 30 minutes convincing Chloe to accept being moved to a shelter, of which she burst into tears as she doesn’t want to leave her pets behind.

The dogs weren’t permitted at the shelter, so she opted to stay outside with them.

But despite the depressing situation, she has continuously given her pets protection, warmth, unconditional love, and companionship. In particular, Chloe attained limelight after Photographer Omar Camarillo told her story to millions of people through Facebook. It didn’t just melt internet users’ hearts, but it equally became an inspiration for compassion.

Since the images captured a lot of attention, people have tried to help Luz and donated items for her and the dogs.

Since then, Luz has been able to move into a shelter that allows for dogs, for 50 pesos a day.

When police tried to convince Luz to leave the streets and move to a shelter, the elderly woman broke out in tears.

‘I don’t want to go, I don’t need help, I’m fine here,’ she said to the police. As they were unable to leave her on the streets, police managed to convince Luz to give her son’s address.

Though they dropped her off at his place, Luz was soon back on the streets with her cherished companions.


‘That day when I took the photos, it was raining, I was walking down the street and I could see the lady taking shelter from the cold and rain with her dogs inside the garbage bags.

On the other hand, in an interview with Bored Pandia, Omar explained: ‘I was shocked by the conditions in which the woman lives. I was able to realize the La Chloe has a great heart because she helps animals despite having many shortcomings.’

Omar returned to take pictures of Luz’s new abode; a tent.

She says she would like the government to donate a place to her so she can take care of more animals.
