Another puppy

This is the new puppy I mentioned in yesterday's blog. It's another girl, around the same age as the 6 pack.

The puppy from the 6pack that was sick yesterday seems to be better today.
Now with the 6 pack, this new one and Meredith's 4 puppies there are a total of 11 puppies at the beach--very sad that people are still doing this.

Update on the 6 pack

One of the females seems to be sick today--she didn't want to eat and I gave her NutriCal. I've been giving them antibiotics. I'm worried about her and the others but I don't know what else to do.

I went back in the afternoon and the puppy looked a little better--she even ate a little. I will still give antibiotics to all of them, just in case and will check on them tomorrow.
There's another new small puppy at the beach--more or less the same age as the 6 pack. I don't have pictures yet, but tomorrow.

Meredith's puppies

This are two of Meredith's four puppies. I posted last month that she gave birth but I couldn't find the puppies then. The puppies are inside the Shell Plant, under the stairs of a small trailer and of course I can't get inside. I was told that the other two are white/brown too. the puppies must be 4 weeks old now. They are starting to be interested in solid food.Another of the dogs at Shell's gate.

Another sweet dog near the gate. Stephanie is with them too.

Update on the 6 pack

[In the first line, the girls; second line, the boys]
At least they look a little better after a bath. They have mange and were full of fleas. If someone can help with Malaseb Flush or Spray, Sulfodene or any other skin cream to treat mange/infection/fungi, it would be appreciated.

A box of puppies

I was told that these 6 mangy lab mix puppies were in a box near the hotels. They are around 5-6 weeks old. There are 3 boys and 3 girls. All of them chocolate/white with green eyes.

This 2 mangy dogs has been lately at the beach.

Update on Kieran, Kiefer and Karyn

These are Yadira's pups, now 10 weeks old. They have been with me since they were 2 weeks old and they are leaving soon.

This is how much they changed.

Kepler--the kitten--is also going to Florida soon.

The puppies are now eating on their own. They should be around 5 weeks now.

[Puppies taken by Katie]
There's good news and bad news. The good news is that Katie--from Island Dog--rescued two of the puppies from the beach.

[Missing puppy]

The third one--the sister of one of the others--apparently was taken by someone else before we arrived at the beach today.

And the bad news is that the shy pup that was abandoned yesterday with a rope around his neck was found today dead in the middle of the road, near where I saw him yesterday.

Another new one

This young dog didn't let me approach to him. He still has a blue rope around his neck.

Dog food donations needed

Update on the weather

Hurricane Omar went a little more to the east and up until now it's not affecting us except some rain every now and then.

New girls

I saw these puppies today: two of them siblings and another slightly bigger girl, but they seem to have the same age. The two smaller puppies seem to be very scared, but after a while they show how sweet they are--they reminds me of Sami and Sally. Unfortunately with hurricane Omar coming they will have to spend the storm at the boathouse. We would like to take all of them to a more secure place but there is no money or enough houses to place them. We already have several dogs in foster homes or at vet clinics (Kieran, Kiefer, Karyn, Rex, Alyssa, Elsie, Cassie, Shakira and her 7 puppies & Kepler)

These two adult females arrived this week. They are small and sweet.

Lost kitty

I saw this 3-4 months old kitten in front of McDonalds trying to cross the street and meowing desperately. He was wearing a yellow collar with diamonds. He behaves very well and he was obviously someone's pet.

I named this girl Cassie. She showed up yesterday and she was very skinny and anemic with a big belly. I dewormed her yesterday and the big belly is now gone. Now she's at the vet.

New girl

She's extremely emaciated and anemic. She's very nice and it's obvious that she has been abused and neglected. Only around 3 months old.

Shakira and puppies

I just left Shakira and the puppies with Liz so she will take them to a vet in the metro area. Please, we need sponsors to have them all vetted and for their boarding.

UPDATE: No donations for Shakira and the puppies yet. Please, anyone interested in sponsoring her can send the donations to Ginny Cornett (ginnycornett@yahoo.com). And please don't forget to mention it's for Shakira and the pups. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!
We also need a foster home for them. If you know someone in the area who's interested in fostering let us know.

Shakira and her 7 puppies

There's a possibility to take Shakira and her puppies to a veterinary clinic but they urgently need sponsors for their boarding and vaccinations once they are ready for that.
On a closer look, Shakira's puppies seem to be older. The first time, I saw them at night and they looked kind of week, and I thought they could be close to 2 weeks old, but seeing them these days--they are kind of walking around, starting to play with each other and they seem to be interested in their mom's food--consistent with the age of 3 weeks. I think that's good, because they willbe ready for adoption sooner.

Update on the puppies we took to the vet last week

Talissa (red) and Nelly (brown, at the background) were the ones who died of parvo.
Dexter, Elsie, Bianca and Derek
Sally and Sami

Finally I have checked on who were the two pups who died last week. They were Nelly and Talissa. I thought it was Elsie because Nelly and her sister Elsie were the ones who were really sick, but it turned out to be Talissa. Those 3 were the only ones with parvo but only Elsie survived. There was an error in their papers and now Elsie has Talissa's name.

Derek, Dexter, Elsie, Sally, Sami and Bianca are ok.
