Join Singto’s “Virtual Family” & show him people really do care…(details below)
There are many sad cases K9Aid helps every year, but this one has really left us shattered & saddened beyond words. This is the story of “Singto”, a Thai dog who has lead the most miserable existence for 10 years.
He lived with his elderely owner & was kept in a small cage 24 hours a day/7 days a week for 10 years. Yes, his entire life since puppyhood, he was squeezed into a tiny, filthy cage. He could not stretch his legs out, had no love, care or affection from the old lady & was barely given enough food or water , just enough to keep him alive.
His cage was covered in thick wire mesh & after 10 years of trying to tear away the mesh with his teeth and claws, he finally succeeded & tried to escape. Though Singto finally freed himself, his muscles (which has never been used properly due to his confinement) did not allow him to run far and fast enough. The old lady caught him just a couple of metres away from the house. She hit him with a bat on his 4 legs hoping to break them so he could run nowhere.
We have been told that many people living around this area saw the abuse of Singto. They heard the dog crying in pain, yet no one came forward. Thailand, just like many countries, animal cruelty is overlooked, especially if that human is elderly.
Singto was dragged back to the house by the old lady. He was placed in front of the house in his cage. This happened last August (the rainy season) & Singto was soaked in rain and left alone lying in sun with no food or mercy from this old lady. Singto cried his heart out and instead of getting some comfort, he got hit by his owner every time he cried.
This crying continued for 3 long weeks until one day a neighbour could not stand to hear this dog suffer any more and she took a video clip of him crying & the authorities intervened. The old lady denied abusing Singto and just said he was an old dog & she was innocent of any wrong doing. She did however allow the authorities to remove his saying she did not want him back.
The moment Singto was removed from the property & taken to a vet, he never cried again.
Apart from severe bed sores, Urinary Infection, and Lenticular Nuclear Sclerosis, Singto was not found any fractures in his legs or anywhere in his aging body. Thus, sadly no lawsuit could be proceeded with the old owner.
Donations were sent for Singto’s vet bills and treatment and he now resides in a foster home in Bangkok with a very caring lady.
Singto’s muscles are very weak & he sleeps most of the time. He loves being petted and held by his caregiver – Khun Mot. A wheelchair has been ordered for Singto in the hope of building his muscle strength & giving him more independence. We suspect that he will stand sleeping on his wheelchair though.
It is lovely to see Singto enjoy watching birds, having treats, and watching other dogs playing.
We hope for Singto to continue to be healthy as he is now and enjoy more happy moments like these for more years to come. We are therefore desperate to find people to become Singto’s special sponsors & provide him with a “Virtual Family” to care for him for the rest of his life.
Your sponsorship of Singto will provide him with everything he needs. The cost of his care per month is 100usd. We are hoping so much to find 10 people to become his sponsor, with a recurring monthly donation of just 10usd each.
This dog has lead the most miserable life. You can now give him the best life possible by joining his “Virtual Family” today & becoming one of his special sponsors.
Please consider helping Singto today. He needs you . Thank you. x
