“FACE”, AN IBICIAN HOUND NEEDS URGENT HELP!

24 Dec

109 089 088 110 114

This is the story of the podenca FACE, found by a policemen in Lleida. He persuaded a friend to take the dog in and thought it was a good place but the podenca was not very well atended and they even let her have a litter. so in the end the policmen had to take her back and bring her to a boarding kennel where she stayed for 5 weeks. she lost even more weight, was quite unhappy and as we heard about her we offered to take her in.
she has done negative in the fast test of leishmania but we found several big knots on her breast, possibly mama cancer. it also could be that she is carrying babies again… so we have to sterilize her very fast and at the same time try to save her life by doing a mama surgery.

we will need lots of donations to save our dear FACE, she is such a lovely friendly dog and deserves to live for much longer. please help us to help her!!

please make a donation on behalf of  FACE  and help us to help her:

A GALGA’S DEATH “SAVED” 4 INNOCENT LIVES!

27 Nov

a cry for help went through facebook “who can save this poor galga?”, PRO-GALGO offered immediatly  help and financial support but the little black girl called AZABECHE died a few hours after arriving in the vetclinic because we could not move her in time to Fatima’s vethospital in Seville. she had a severe neumonia and also parvovirosis.
everybody asked: “and what about her 4 doggy friends???” so we  decided together with our french friend CLAUDIE (“matias el galgo peludo” in facebook) to save the 4 and make sure they will not suffer the same as their little black friend.


our friends and volunteers GLORIA and SALUD travelled over 130km to a small village called el Saucejo to pick the 4 up and bring them to our wonderfull veterinary  in Seville

here you may see them already in the clinick of FATIMA, our friend and supporter.
she checked all 4 of them to make sure they do not incubate the same disease as her little dead friend. But thank good, all are fine except a little high temperature of the bodeguera but it could have been caused by the stress. so all 4 have been microchipped and 3 of them vaccinated with rabies.

and after a long day they all relax in the the bording kennels until they can travel to barcelona.

the 4 will be presented for adoption in a few weeks but until then we need your help to finance the bording kennel and vecare.
our french friend Claudie (facebook “matias el galgo peludo”) created an  event for the doggies and has managed to raise over 400€ but that covers only the vets fees in seville for vaccines and chipping and passports plus the transport to barcelona. we urgently need help to pay the bording kennels for the 4 of them and the vetcare incl mediterran diseases tests, spaying , other vaccines, deworming etc

please make a donation on behalf of our 4 doggies and help us to help them

LITTLE NANA IN ACTION!

“NANA” SURVIVED THE DISTEMPER!!!

28 Mar

here you can see little NANA playing for the first time in her short life. she is  real survivor and you my see the video of her on facebook .

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=2627830155611

1o days after starting to recover from the severe mange with septicemia, she started showing signs of distemper and did positive on the test.
our super veterinary Fatima from the Clinica Bellavista in Seville made the impossible possible and saved her life but it was a very very expensive treatment with canine interferon, 120eur per injection and 2 injections per day for 5 days, so imgine what kind of vetbill we are expecting.

please help us to pay for NANA’s vetbill, she is a true survivor !
the vetbill is about 2000eur and will be published here later on, NANA is for sure our most expensive case ever but also the most impressive one, she surveived twice in a state that others would not have made it. she is a miracle for the veterinary and for us!

NEWS FROM THE “BULLAS” DOGS

24 Mar

2 weeks after having left the horror ob Bullas, the doggies are doing well. recovering slowly from mange , having adapted well to the hound gang and feeling save with me.
they still show the signs of neglect but their souls have healed faster than their bodies. they are not panicking anymore, wagg their tales when they see me and one of them even decided to sleep in my bed when i was in the shower.
the 2 galgas have adapted even better and are fully recovered mentally, their skin is still redish from the mange but its getting better daily.
8 dogs have been able to leave the horror from bullas to be with us.

we had come from over 600km to bullas and when we arrived, the rescue groups had taken all the healthy and good looking galgos and ibician hounds, leaving these ppor podencos and the 2 leishmania galgas behind. foreign groups had “reserved” dogs and when they had been positive on leishmania, rejected them, a french association wanted to separate a podenca from her only 2 weeks old pup to sterilise the podenca and sending her to france without fullfilling the legal dates of vaccination and without considering the welfare of the puppy. spanish rescuers refused to send the dogs and now they are rehomed happily in spain.
Unfortunatly is PRO-SETTER having big problems to gather the information and vet reports of the rescued dogs for the court case because certain rescue groups just snatched nice doggies but do not participate nor help with vet information.
shame what’s beeing done in the name of animal rescue!!

on this linke you may see the pictures of the rescue in bullas http://progalgo.wordpress.com/2012/03/10/die-holle-von-bullas/
