K9Aid supports many individual rescuers who give up their personal time & devote much of their lives to rescuing street dogs in need. One of these wonderful souls is Toni Jessop who is originally from the UK and now based in Phuket, Thailand. Toni & her partner Nick have recently been pulling vulnerable dogs from the government pound on Phuket Island & attempting to raise funds to treat these poor souls and save their lives.
Their most recent rescues are Shearer & Buttons.
Toni says… “we removed these 2 young, male dogs from the filthy + overcrowded govt pound today because if left there any longer, they would have died.
Shearer was covered in 100’s of fleas + ticks, his immune system is extremely weak, he has 2 kinds of blood parasites and is extremely low in red and white blood cells. He may need a blood transfusion in the next few days.He also has multiple, deep, infected bite wounds, two of which have turned into deep abscesses.
Buttons has heart worm, is weak, malnourished, is terrified of humans & unable to defend himself against the bigger ,stronger dogs at the govt pound. He will need monthly Nexgard treatment for at least a year.
We would be so grateful if you could help us with the vet treatment for Shearer + Buttons.
Once fully recovered we will find them both forever homes where they can live out the rest of their days in love + peace + happiness… Thank you.”
Without rescuers like Toni & Nick, dogs like Shearer & Buttons would die horrible, painful deaths. They now have a chance to live again. Please help with a donation if you can.
Thank you x
