Just some of the many ways that the K9Aids supporters have helped improve the life of Man’s Best Friend…

Keeping  Romanian dogs warm this winter – “K9Aid supporters donated 40 new DOG HOUSES”

Untitled-2

K9Aid supporters, funded a special project to provide warm dog houses for every dog in Sava’s Safe Haven Romania before the winter began, it was a great success. 

Dog houses will be a blessing for the dogs during the harsh Romanian winters where it snows & the freezing temperatures reach well below zero. Each dog house contains lots of straw and keeps the dogs warm. The dogs love them and our supporters wanted to make sure that EVERY dog has his OWN HOUSE THIS WINTER!

A (double) dog house to shelter 2 dogs costs 60 euros approximately US$78. Each supporters who purchased one could have their name placed on the front. 

“Sava’s Safe Haven would like to thank all K9Aid supporters for making this possible…

HELPING TO GIVE STAR HER DIGNITY BACK

HELP GIVE STAR HER DIGNITY BACK.

Star lives at a Chiang Mai Temple and is cared for by Hand to Paw & Temple monks. A few months ago Star was hit by a motorcycle when she accompanied the monks to the nearby crematorium for the funeral rites of a local villager. Star received severe trauma to her abdominal and groin area requiring long-term convalescence & the amputation of her tail.

Her external appearance showed Star as having made a full recovery, but internally, that was not the case. Over the past few months her bedding has become soaked with urine and the vet has confirmed the nerves near Star’s urethra received trauma from the accident, causing increased incontinence.

Dealing with incontinence is a life-long endeavour. If meds are not given she risks urinary infections & irritating rashes.

Hand to Paw monitors the temple monks giving Star the incontinence medication she needs, and as her condition is quite severe, it’s important she continues this regularly. The cost of Star’s monthly medication was paid for by K9Aid supporters so she now has a 2 year supply so that Star can live with dignity and stay in the best health possible.

BAMBI - A SICK, SAD LITTLE GIRL WHO NEEDS YOUR HELP

bambi1

Bambi, the sweet little girl who had spent a very long time at a Dog Meat Trade Shelter (DMT) shelter in Northern Thailand. Bambi was removed from the shelter & had 2 potential adopters for Bambi overseas, but sadly Bambi is was not well enough to travel and was quite sick. She only weighed 10kgs & should be approx 15kgs. She is so quiet and sweet that we think she could not compete for food in the run she shared with 300 dogs.

With financial support from K9Aid supporters Bambi is now eating well, but she has some kidney problems and diarrhea. She is very weak and we need to monitor her closely. Bambi will need special kidney support food and regular veterinary visits & treatment over the next 2 months. We want to ensure Bambi has the best chance of getting well again.

Poor Bambi survived her ordeal of being captured into the Illegal Dog Meat Trade, but now she has a future to look forward to.

FOOD & SUPPLIES DESPERATELY NEEDED FOR 350 DOGS - MOALAND SHELTER ROMANIA

cause1

Maoland shelter is home to 350 rescued dogs who would otherwise have been killed, captured by illegal dog catchers or face an even worse death in one of Romania’s death camp public shelters.

These dogs are alive because of Marinela Piperea who is Maoland Shelter, one special and very dedicated human. Not young herself and with medical conditions she dedicates every moment looking after and attending to these dogs not only in the shelter but many that are found along the way, puppies who are left by the road, dumped outside the shelter to others suffering severe starvation and mange.

Marinela asks nothing for herself and lives in a small caravan onsite with no bathroom or proper cooking facilities. Her dedication to seeing these dogs eventually get a home is at very least inspirational.

K9Aid supporters have donated towards the cost of food at Marinela’s shelter, & there is ongoing support via K9Aid’s FOOD AID appeal.

THE LAST STEP OF FETITZA'S JOURNEY - HER FLIGHT TO CANADA!

2 1 10169212_455072624628445_47 10425037_10152190890366330_

This absolutely filthy, matted old girl was found in Brasov Romania after years of neglect. She was terrified, fear biting and had to be tranquilized to be rescued.

Fetitza was taken straight to a vet where her filth infested coat was shaved off and a big tumour found on her stomach. Tumour was removed and slowly this old girl began to respond to humans, but still extremely wary.

We are glad to say that Fetitza has had a remarkable turnaround in her Romanian foster home. As you can see by the photos, she’s learning to trust. Amazing what a little bit of loving care can do, even after so many years of neglect.

The last step of Fetitza’s journey was to fly her to Canada where our friends at “The Laika Foundation” will foster & find this old girl the home of her dreams. K9Aid’s supporters raised funds to rescue Fetitza & help pay for her flight to Canada…

DAISY HAS A BREAST TUMOUR. SHE NEEDED $350 TO PAY FOR HER OPERATION

daisy1 daisy2

Daisy was found wandering the streets of Bangkok with a large breast tumour. A kind Thai lady took Daisy to the vet and Daisy had an operation to remove the tumour. Sadly a week later her scar became infected which delayed her recovery and during that time, another smaller tumor was found under her other breast. This was also removed and Daisy was about to be discharged when another lump was found on her back, so poor Daisy will have to endure a third operation.

Daisy was at the Wattana Pet Clinic in Bangkok. Kind supporters in Bangkok have been paying Daisy’s veterinary bills, but this third operation means more funds were needed to make Daisy well again.

K9Aid supporters paid for Daisy’e 3rd operation so this old girl can look forward to a better life…

Nina, is a little dog in Kosovo, whose young owner was forced by her parentsto give her up to a local government shelter. The little girl was very attached to Nina and extremely distressed at having to part with her best fiend. This photo haunts us all very much. How absolutely heart breaking to love a dog and have it taken away!

Our hearts go out to this little dog “Nina” and her young owner. With the help of the wonderful ladies at Prishtina Dog & Cat Sanctuary, Nina has been removed from the shelter and is currently in temporary foster care in Romania. The wonderful “Laika Foundation” desperately want to fly Nina out of Romania to Canada as soon as possible & have her re-homed into a loving family. The haunting image of this little girl losing her best friend is just awful.

K9Aid supporters came to the rescue & Nina’s fare is paid to Canada, her new adopters have promised to send pictures to the little girl.

YOJI GETS A 2ND CHANCE - TO WALK AGAIN!

yoji1A

Yoji was run over by a motorcycle and his spinal chord badly damaged. He was found wandering the streets of Bangkok dragging his back legs on the hard ground. He had several very sore wounds as he’d been like this for months, before someone came to his rescue.

Some kind Thai ladies rescued Yoji and have been looking after him. They took Yoji to see an orthopedic specialist to find out whether there is a chance Yoji can walk again. The news was good as his back legs still respond to pain, so surgery was possible for Yoji. His spinal cord was displaced and could be fixed but he will need long-term physical therapy including acupuncture. Yoji is a beautiful 8 month old boy, so gentle and calm. He loves to be with people and adores being held. Yoji deserves a chance to walk again & lead a happy life.

K9Aid supporters donated the funds for Yogi to have his spinal operation & he is now being fostered while he recovers.

dmt-dogs-cause-photo1

Many of you will remember this heartbreaking photos of 5 puppies. They were rescued from the Illegal Dog Meat Trade and moved to a shelter in Northern Thailand where they shared a run with 300 dogs. The puppies were found huddled together in a corner, very scared and vulnerable.

Sadly one puppy was attacked and died. The remaining 5 have been removed from the shelter & taken to foster care in Bangkok this week. After 3 months waiting time, they will then fly to the UK and all will be found loving, forever homes. They needed their foster care costs paid while they wait out their quarantine period. K9Aid supporters have already committed to raising this money so they have a place to call home for now…

YOUR DOG HOUSES NOW NEED BLANKETS & STRAW!

Sava’s Safe Haven in Romania now has 80 new Dog Houses to keep every dog in the shelter warm this winter, thanks to the kind & generous K9Aid supporters! The young puppies & older dogs are most vulnerable during the freezing winters so filling the dog houses with straw and warm blankets will make them super cosy!

So after providing 40 new double dog houses the K9Aid supporters then donated another $20 for a blanket/straw bundle to keep the dogs toasty warm in their new houses.
