There were a lot of the same faces at the shelter that we saw during our last visit, as well as some new ones. Several dogs have also been adopted in the past week or two. In fact, two puppies were picked up by a couple while we were onsite. We popped on a couple of our recently donated collars (Thanks, Betsy!!), and they were on their way to a better life...hopefully. At the end of the day, there were too many dogs to rescue from the shelter, but four we could not leave without. I feel the best way I can tell you about our day yesterday is through the few pictures I had time to take. Enjoy...but for my fellow weepers, get the tissues out now!
A sweet puplet who we caught outside of her fenced-in kennel. She smelt of urine. Jose said she was blind.
Four puppies taking a nap. When we arrived, very few dogs had any food in their bowls and had not been fed that day. With donation money, Colin ran out an bought 200 lbs. of dog food and extra bowls.
Iris' back leg...none of these pictures do her injuries justice.
I am leaving for Dr. Ramos' now to pick up Iris, Zoey, and Bambi. Adri will be picking up Rosa later this afternoon. We will do all we can to help these animals. These animals are all exceptionally sick and/or in need of extensive veterinary attention. Please help us save these four Arecibo rescues. Let us know if you are interested in sponsoring (even partially) or adopting Iris, Rosa, Zoey, or Bambi. We will be glad to take care of them on this side until they are ready.
I'll write more later,
