SomLee being rescued by Bon Jardin Dog Rescue – on his way to the vet for xrays.

SOMLEE’S LIFE CHANGED FOR EVER IN A SPLIT SECOND…

It’s heart breaking to see a perfectly healthy, happy dog’s life change in a split second by a senseless act. This poor street dog (SomLee) was SHOT by a local farmer in a small Thai Village. The bullet entered his spine and he was instantly paralysed from the waist down and clearly in a lot of distress.

The rescue team at Bon Jardin Dog Rescue Center was alerted to SomLee’s situation by a locals who had been keeping him safe & confined after the shooting incident a week earlier. It was obvious he was now in a bad way and now needed urgent attention.

After an X-Ray and some other checks at the vets everyone’s worst fears were confirmed…SomLee has severe nerve damage on his back from the bullet wound and will likely never walk again.

It’s hard to stay calm in the face of such distressing situations, and it makes us so angry that people can treat animals in this way. This lovely dog is now paralysed and incontinent. He continues to behave like a normal 9 month old puppy & is clearly puzzled by his inability to stand or walk.

YOUR DONATIONS will enable Somlee to have an MRI scan to determine the exact location of the bullet so it can be removed. Leaving it insitu can result in lead poisoning. We’d also like to be able to purchase a wheelchair  so he can move about more easily.

Please donate a little for SomLee if you can. Every donation however small helps! We will post UPDATES as we receive them from the Bon Jardin Sanctuary who will care for this dear boy as long as is necessary and determine how to give him the best life possible.

Thank you.
