Help for Shakira




Foster home needed for Shakira and her 7 puppies found in a nearby park. The puppies are about a week old.

Meredith


Apparently this girl already gave birth recently. I haven't seen the puppies but I'll keep looking.

After the storm...


I saw this girl for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I saw her again after these stormy days and she seems pregnant!
On my way to the beach today I noticed a dead dog in the middle of the road. I stopped to check on her/him and it was a young female black pup between 6-8 months old--I've never seen her before. Inmediately from the bushes came another pup--another female, same age, black with white boots, very nice. She seemed to be watching the dead pup--I think maybe they were sisters. She was absolutely hungry.

Puppies at the vet

NELLY
ELSIE
I still have to confirm it but apparently Nelly died at the vet. Her sister Elsie was still sick today.

The others--Sally, Sami, Derek, Dexter, Bianca and Talissa--seem to be ok.

And yet another rainy day...


It was rainy today--but a lot less! (until it began again...) I finally checked the pups properly and found out that Elsie and her sister Nelly were sick--i thought they looked strange yesterday but I didn't notice anything else under the heavy rain. The other 4 didn't look sick but they were not as enthusiastic as ever and seemed to have diarrhea. I gave antibiotics to all of them but Elsie and Nelly looked really bad. I got the ok to take all of them to the vet. Please, sponsor them!

Another rainy day

It's still raining, but lighter. So I went this morning to check on the dogs. They were ok, but hungry and cold. The dying dog from yesterday was dead. I couln't burry him but I put his body in an area of tall grass and covered him with the same newspapers he was lying on. Seeing him again, I noticed several infected small wounds and he had a needle inbedded in one of his front paws. He should have been around 8 months old.

I could barely pass to go to the beach--there were water everywhere.

A rainy day

GINA

It's been raining almost continously since last night and we have some floodings but I had things to do... Today I went to the store to get some dandruff shampoo for the puppies. They have something on the skin that seem to be improving with triple antibiotic. The vet told me it's not mange. Yolanda--another rescuer--told me that I can use Selsum Blue and that's what I got. In the parking lot I saw Gina--without puppies--with another cute young female.


I went to the beach and it was kind of a disaster. At the entrance I saw a dog that seemed to be dead but when I got close I noticed he was still alive--but barely. It wasn't one of the regulars at the beach... it was a young mangy chocolate Lab--less than a year old--that someone left to die there at the side of the road and under the heavy rain.

I didn't know if he was sick or poisoned, so I put the gloves on and I took him to a nearby guard booth and left him on some newspapers I got. There wasn't anything I could do but at least he will be warmer and not soaking under the rain in his last minutes. He looked like he was going to die anytime soon.

This is the beach seen from above. The large building in the center is the boathouse.
This is the front of the boathouse.

This is where people come to fish. At the end is the boathouse.

Jaina finally got out of the veterinary clinic and will join her brothers Jazz and Jan. Jamie, their sister was already adopted here. They are around 9-10 weeks old. They are Sophie's puppies.
