clarenseFor some of our dogs, finding a home is extremely hard. This can be because of the age, breed, or long term treatment that some stray/abandoned dogs may need, In particular as some of the dogs that we rescue might have a behaviour problem, which some families might not be able to cope with unless they were animal experts.

These dogs will probably have to stay under our care for a very long time and sponsoring helps to cover some of the huge costs involved during their period of stay with us or at one of our foster homes. Every dog that comes under our care is wormed, tested for Leishmania, vaccinated, micro chipped, and sterilised. The medical bill for each puppy or grown dog can be from 200 - 400 euros each. This amount does not include things like other operations, food etc. Each long stay dog can cost on average 30 euros per month to feed, worm and flea treatment. This cost does not include vet treatment for other medical conditions that the dog may have.

Help us to maintain a happy and deserving good life for our long term dogs. Your Sponsorship will help towards their care.

We never put an animal to sleep unless it’s very ill and only then under our vet’s recommendation.

THIS IS ZORRO - Found 25.01.2021 Our volunteer found this dog on the side of the road this morning, straight to closest vets for prognosis, that they believe to be a road traffic accident, as had flaps of skin and scabs, His face got the worst but he has other body wounds too.
He is lucky he has not lost his eye.
We are now beyond full, and not really sure how to cope.
Tomorrow he will go to one of our main vets but today he has meds, is ok and will be at the shelter in an hour for a good feed and settle him in a comfy warm bed.

UPDATE 27.01.2021 -

Update on Zorro, new dog in the rescue

johnny

JOHNNY was born in 2005 and has had a hard life. Lately he had his skin torn off from his back by his companions at the local dog pound and had his leg dislocated then he was adopted by a Spanish man but the dog escaped and was involved in a car accident. He was rescued and we took him to the vet and the owner was contacted as the dog had been chipped at the Pound. Due to the expense of the treatment the man no longer wanted the dog and we made him sign the over to us. This is the video of Johnny taken a few days after his operation.

VIDA
Vida Born 2008 Found unable to move by the roadside, and we were contacted in an emergency situation as she needed immediate, emergency vets treatment. Considered to be a road traffic accident, this od girl was chipped but her hunter owner when contacted refused to pay for any treatment he even refused her euthanasia, choosing to take her home as she was. We stepped up and refused to let her be released from the hospital, and had her chip transfered to our rescue. She then beggan a regime of operations to put her body back together, This old girl is that strong and determined to live that she survived all the ops, much to the amasement of our vet. Vida is now in foster and will be for some time, we are not sure if she will ever find a home that will take on such and old girl with so many scars. So she joins our sponsorship album. Vida is recovered and is happy and loving life.

marina marina

Marina born 2013 and her three 7-week old girls were walking along the side of a busy road. Marina was limping badly so we took her to the vet only to find out that it is an old injury. Her front paw is crushed or badly broken and the same further up her leg. How much she must have suffered, poor little thing and on top of all done, getting pregnant. We have a dilemma as the vet says that it cannot be operated on with a good result do to the amount of fractures, this mean that she will be wearing out her paw from rubbing on the floor and we are not sure what pain she is in or will be in the future as she holds it up all the time. The other option is to take the leg off and she will probably be better off as dog on three legs still have a happy life. She is a real friendly little girl. Don’t know how she was suppose to hunt to help feed her litter considering the state of her leg?. We also did a Leishmaniasis test and was positive and very high so she needs expensive medication to keep the level down as well as tablets to control the level. The tablets will probaby be for the rest of her life.

zorba needs a sponsor
We think Zorba was born around 2014. He was rescued from a bad situation and is afraid of persons. We have had him since June 2015 and he is only just starting to relax more. He is now gaining my trust with us and walks on the leash but cannot be with strangers on a walk or let loose as for sure he would not come back.

sponsor sandy
This is when we found Sandie in 2009. She was found collapsed on the side of the road. Covered in ticks and fleas and her skin was completely encrusted. She was dehydrated and starving. She was taken immediately to the vets for treatment to be administered. She had dermatitis in her feet, which made it painful for her to walk and was also diagnosed with leishmania but only luckily only on her skin. She is now on the road to recovery and she is looking wonderful and is a completely different dog. Sandie is sweet and gentle natured and must have been someone’s pet at one time

Candy - Born 2015-. She is a very friendly and lovely Podenco female. Loves her cuddles, is gentle, very alert and very agile, typical of her breed. She walks on the leash, however she can never be taken for a walk without a leash and can jump a 2m fence from a stand still position and would probably not come back. With all that energy it was sooner or later that someomething would happen and she tore some ligaments on her leg with has left her with pemanent damage

Eva. Born 2015.
I was found in the living in the countryside with my 5 puppies,
I was a very young single mum and life was hard.
Luckily a kind man phoned animals in distress and my life changed forever.
I had shelter, regular food and a safe place for me and my babies.
I live with my foster mum, she is the kindest person I have ever met.
My foster mum has been very patient and calm with me and I have been here so long now that to move me would not be a good idea as I am still very nervous of people

UPDATE: MINDA - SANCTUARY DOG -
HER OCTOBER VETS BILL 746 EURO.
Epilepsy and Leishmaniosis.
Sad to report that Minda now has also tested Leishmania positve, so she must have been carrying that, has had the full course of treatments and that too is now under control and her condition is improving. but the monthly vets costs are needing to be met as she will always be our responsibility.
We simply cannot do it without you. Thank you
MINDA
Date of Birth 24.07.2015
Minda was rescued along with her friend from the home where their owner had died. Minda was soon seen to be epileptic as she threw regular fits, which in the early days were extremely severe and very worrying. We have Minda in a wonderful foster home that we think will be a forever foster, where she has her fits regularly monitored and her medication changed to suit her needs. Currently we have improved Mindas life tremendously with the fits now under control, but any slight stress does seem to aggrevate her situation, so we think she needs to remain in her safe comfort zone where she has a wonderful quality of life.

Date of birth 10.12.18
. Tufa was found with her sister as a tiny pup with a nasty break in her back leg. he break was fixed by our bone specialist vet.. as she has grown it has become obvious that there are further problems with her development around the break and her hips. She is currently undergoing constant supervision at the vets with regular xrays. The pins had to be removed from the old break and now we move on to the developing problems with her hips.
