THE PATAN DOGS
PLEASE BE WARNED THIS CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES OF A DISTRESSING NATURE.
Our partners Fundacion Benjamin Mehnert received an emergency call with a desperate plea for help: A shelter called ‘Patan’ that closed. Dogs that are left in complete homelessness and many of them in deplorable state…
28 Dogs liberated from the depths of hell. But their souls and bodies remain for longer still….
This is the brutal reality.
“The initial investigations have been completed and the team is still waiting for the full findings.
But it doesn’t look good. Diabolical in fact.
2 female dogs are pregnant, one of which has already given birth to 7 puppies this morning with unfortunately a stillbirth.
One male has a fracture, one female has a uterus prolapse, one female has mammary tumours Three surgeries are definitely 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, some hit the jackpot. Many of the animals are completely apathetic.
These animals need special food and need to be weaned slowly. (ca. 4€/dozen)
Also, the puppies need special food.
Also, the animals need glucantime, carbesia, doxycyclin, allopurinol, immiticide and iharma.
So you have an idea: a cycle of glucantime comes to 145€ per dog,
a filariary treatment for 300€
And so the list goes on and the cost goes up immeasurably.
In addition – let’s talk plainly – that these animals will most likely be among the ones that are hard to mediate. Because apart from the period UNTIL these animals are fit to travel, who will take such such dogs so quickly nowadays? And all this just before the start of the hunting season – where now every place is needed most.
Will everyone make it ? Can’t tell at this point…
It is so incredibly bitter.
We can only ask you for your help in this state of absolute emergency.
If you have an extra £ – PLEASE donate or if you want to, join the auction group for the Patan dogs:
TOGETHER, let’s finally give these animals what they deserve.
The RIGHT TO LIFE
We thank you very much.
The dogs thank you.”
