Our partners Fundacion Benjamin Mehnert received an emergency call with a desperate plea for help: A shelter called ‘Patan’ that closed. Dogs that were left in complete homelessness and many of them in a deplorable state…
28 Dogs liberated from hell.
This is the brutal reality.
2 female dogs are pregnant, one of which gave birth to 7 puppies with unfortunately a stillbirth.
One male has a fracture, one female has a uterus prolapse, one female has mammary tumours. Three surgeries were required.
Anyone who sees these pictures and knows a little about Mediterranean diseases knows what’s going on here. It’s all represented, the full programme: Leishmaniasis, Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis, Babesiosis, Filariasis, Hepatozoonosis. Some dogs have ‘just’ one condition, others had worst luck with several. Many of the animals were completely apathetic.
Thanks to the exceptional care and dedication of the volunteers at FBM and those who donated to this cause, all, bar the stillbirth puppy survived and have healed well and all found homes.
