This happened today at one of the construction sites in Sterlitamak, Russia:
2 female kittens were found in a closed plastic bag. When the Volunteers saw the condition the kittens were in, it really broke everyone’s heart! As the results of a vet examination showed both kittens were beaten, one has lost the eye, both have one broken leg and they both have hernias.
We are raising funds for urgent surgeries to remove hernias, fix 2 legs and provide medication and food for the recovery process.
Please help! Any amount will go a long way!
Cases of animal abuse are happening every day in Russia. And government is doing nothing, often contributing to the animal cruelty by approving laws that allow shooting homeless animals!
We are fighting every day to save as many as we can. We are regular people like you – with jobs, families and problems. Sterlitamak Volunteers operates as a Volunteer organization without any shelter or help from the government, strictly on donations received from people.
We received the news about the puppy’s condition and it is not really good. The pelvis is broken and one of the broken bones is obstructing the big intestine preventing the puppy from defecating. The puppy is suffering and whimpering because she has not popped for a week now.
The vet proposed to have enema done and a surgery to fix the bone after which the puppy will have a 50/50 chance of survival, but we will have to try! Otherwise, the puppy will die within a few weeks.
Right now the Volunteers are trying to give puppy an enema to help relieve the pain.
We have started the fundraiser for the surgery, food and medication for the puppy (it is a girl as we found out), she will also need to be spayed during the surgery.
Please help this young puppy live! The surgery needs to be urgent. Every dollar will count and will go a long way!
This week Sterlitamak Volunteers received a message from a lady who noticed a stray puppy crying on the side of the road. The puppy was in the area since September and an ad was created to find him a new home.
She took him into a shed by her house and emailed SV group asking for help. Th puppy was whimpering and could not get up on his legs.
The rural area where the accident happened is 20 minute ride from Sterlitamak, Russia. In spite of the late night, there volunteers to help this poor dog and people drove to the place and took him to temporary shelter, where it is warm (right now the temperature in that area is 14F or -10C at night!!!) and there is food and water provided.
Next day the puppy was taken to get x-rays done and now we are waiting for the vet to come over and assess his condition. The vet clinic does not have x-ray equipment and the vet clinic closes early, so the vet makes house calls for 200 rubles or $4.50.
The puppy is eating and drinking water, can urinate but not able to defecate – he whimpers when he wants to go. The x-ray technician said that there is something wrong with his pelvis and the right thigh. We are waiting on the news from the vet’s visit and will be posting the verdict later.
For now we wanted to start a fundraiser for this puppy to help him get better.
I will be making more posts about the puppy to inform about his progress. As you can see even $5 can help tremendously, so please donate to help this puppy. This is one of many homeless and stray dogs wondering the streets of Russia and we can help, maybe not all but we can start by saving one at a time!
