The Story

Colin is a sweet 8 year old dog whose two front legs were deliberately cut off in Valcea, Romania. Because of my past experience with severly injured and sick dogs out there I was approached for help by his rescuer and managed to get him to transfered to a vet I work with in Bacau. 

Thanks to the skills of this vet we were able to save enough of his legs to make him a suitable candidate for prosthetics. He travelled to the UK on Friday 11th April and has been at my vets since then undergoing various surgeries to prepare his stumps for his new legs. 

Thanks to to the genourosity of Colins supporters we have managed to cover all his projected costs ... But unfortunately Colin is not an isolated case. There are many more dogs that need our help and I have decided to keep this event running and use it as the fundraising platform for all my rescue work in Romainia. 

I will still post all the updates on Colins progress here, but will also add the other cases I am helping too ...

Just a wuivk update to let you all know that Colin is home ?????? I collected him yesterday and he is now sat in his playpen in the garden waiting for the sun to start shining ... 

The other good news is that Fetita is bring cared for by a family in Romania and we are considering funding her care over there where she is settled as opposed to uprooting her and bringing he over to the UK. She actually suffers from epilepsy and a number of other illnesses so I gave offered to cover these costs as well as finding an ongoing vaccination and care package. I have offered to fund the purchase of a cart and am awaiting confirmation of whether one is required ... 

Since the last update we have also taken in another very sad case from a shelter in Botosani ... Karrina was taken from the public shelter a while who by a Dutch lady and placed in the care of the same vet who cared for Colin out there. She has a very extreme case of dermodex caused by severe problems with her immune system. Apart from her illnesses she is completely traumatised by everything that has happened to her and is  at present virtually unhandleable. Her original secure has run out of funds to keep her with the vet and was going to have to move her to a private shelter ... Having a traumatised dog if my own I know that this will set her back both physically and emotionally and have as such offerd that our group will step in and take over her costs. It costs 7 euros per day to keep her in the vets (4 euros of this are for her medical costs) ... Can anyone spare some 7 euros to buy her and extra day at the vets ??????

Ladies and gentlemen ... We have another case for Colin's LEGacy ... I have been approached by Jeanette Niemeijer and the vet who cared for Colin in Bacau yo help with this dog ?????? Karinna was taken out of Botosani PS at the beginning of April. She was taken to Alina in Bacau and with lots of love and care her skin and general condition have greatly improved but due to lack of funds Jeanette can no longer afford to keep her there and was going to have to send her to a private shelter in Bucharest. The problem with this is that she is still under treatment and she is very, very scared. She has been with Alina for approximately 6 weeks and will only now take the medication from her hand. If she were to move to a private shelter there is no way she will ever go on to make a full recovery ?????? The cost for her foster is 7 euros per day (4 of these euros are for medication) ... Please will you help me to fund her stay there until she is a little calmer and we are able to find her the special home she deserves ??? She has suffered terribly and needs a quiet home with someone who will give her the space she needs to rebuild her trust in mankind ?????? Please donate stating Karinna in your comments ... Just 7 euros will buy her an extra day in the comfort of the veterinary practice where she can have her medical needs attended to and learn to trust again xxx
