Adoption Events and December 2015 Results

In the first 18 days of December 2015 BAGIRA group of volunteers took into their homes 31 animals to foster, a few puppy litters and adult dogs are being cared for by the group (food is provided by BAGIRA).

Volunteers foster the animals in their homes (usually small flats) and the financial support is provided by people like you.

Unfortunately,  this month’s adoption events  were not very successful.  The past 2 events none of the animals found their homes.

Look at the volunteers and animals standing outside for hours during adoption events:

Adoption events are organized by the volunteers who foster homeless animals. All animals are previously dewormed and vetted.

This work cannot be done without your help!

Please make a small donation to BAGIRA group.  Anything will go a long way.

Thank you and happy holiday!

Injured mama dog

Today 2 volunteers form BAGIRA group went to visit a stray injured mama dog with her puppies.
The place where the dog is located is outside the city with no access to food. The girls brought a pot of freshly cooked food which was gone in a few minutes after the mama dog started eating it.

The puppies are still nursing and are weak.  After the dog ate the volunteers were able to put some warm blankets into the place where the dog sleeps.

As you can see, it is a very tight space just beneath the ground level. Currently nobody can foster this family, despite all the post online and pleas nobody could take the dog family in.  So the volunteers are doing what they can to make them survive by bringing them food and blankets.

When the mama dog was fed and saw that these people did not mean harm she allowed to have her wound treated.

As you can see the volunteers go far and beyond to save animals  even when it means to ask for donations, cook  5 kilogram of food and drive a few kilometers away from the city to feed the dog family.

Please donate towards this group, anything will go a long way.

Thank you!

Name change – SV became BAGIRA

The SV group had to change its name to BAGIRA Sterlitamak. The decision was made due to constant pressure from the public of the city who assumed that if the group is called “Volunteers” they would have to take in and save all the animals in the city.

The group is still all volunteer based. The logo was changed to accommodate the name change:

Spinning kitten

A few days ago SV group received online post about little snow white kitten with blue eyes living on the street. The worried Samaritan wanted to make sure the kitten was safe before temperatures outside dropped (and they did, now it is snowing, yes, in October!)

One of the Volunteers went to  the meet with the lady who caught this kitten and her orange tabby brother.  Both were taken into their foster home followed by a vet check up.  As usual they had flee infestation, bloated bellies and ear infection.

The same day foster mom started noticing that snow white kitten was making circles as if her head was dizzy and she was spinning in one spot instead of walking (video).

The vet prescribed treatment which will be 4 shots a day for 40 days!  Snow white (let’s call her that name) is crying and not liking the treatment. She had stomach issues after the first set of shots and did not eat anything, but 2 days later she is doing mush better and her movement has improved. She is not spinning that much and walks almost normally.  See the video.

Litter of 8 puppies in the dumpster

 A litter of 8 puppies left to die by the dumpster. 

The Volunteers is caring for a few litters of puppies at any given time and today we found another litter of newborn puppies right next to a dumpster. They were tossed like a trash to die. All black puppies, 8 altogether, but only 6 survived for far. When the Volunteers arrived to the spot 2 puppies were already dead.

Puppies are fed and asleep in their foster home

The puppies are being bottle fed by our volunteers, one of them is a skilled foster mom who nursed back to life a few litters already; she is just 12-years old!

I cannot comprehend the thought process of people who are able to discard a living helpless being like that! But I am happy to see that good hearted people are everywhere and we can help the helpless and speak for the ones who are not able to speak for themselves!

We will be posting more updates about the puppies. We all hope that they will grow strong and find their loving parents.

If you would like to help these puppies please donated via the link below with the note “for puppies”. All proceeds are going to provide food and medical attention to the animals in need.

Thank you!

20 abandoned puppies

SV group received a call about over 20 puppies living in the outskirts of the town (Sterlitamak, Russia). When Volunteers came to assess the situation they were shocked to see approximately 20 PUPPIES of all ages and sizes living in the woods with almost no shelter! We do not know the exact number of puppies because they some of them hide when they hear human voices. Two women who found the puppies first had been feeding the puppies daily but when they could not keep up, these ladies called SV group for help.

SV group has found homes for 6 puppies so far. Two smallest puppies  out of this bunch have been taken to their foster home today, because they are very weak and would not survive in such cold temperatures.

The rest of the puppies are in need of foster homes right now and daily food supplies.  They have makeshift shelter and the Volunteers brought warm blankets and rags to make their puppy cave warmer.  All blankets and warm clothes as well as food is donated by the citizens of Sterlitamak.

SV group is trying everything possible to save  animal lives and while they might be expendable to others, for Sterlitamak Volunteers and many other good hearted people these lives are priceless and we will do everything to save them!

We will be posting more updates about the puppies. The SV group is in need of food, pee pads, warm used blankets and clothes for the puppies.

Update – Cat with a string

SV group rescued this poor cat with a string embedded into his body (see earlier posts). We do not know what happened to him. After treatment and a lot of love this boy is ready for his forever home.

Kolya (SV group gave him this name) is doing well. He is probably 1 year old and a very large cat. His wounds are healing nicely and he is just full of love to give. We hope to find very good parents for him.

Please help us rescue more animals in need. It is not very hard to do. By donating just a few dollars you can save a life. Any amount will go a long way in Russia. For example: cost of a spay/neuter surgery for cats is just $6-8, cost of spay surgery for dogs is $25.

SV group is receiving no help from the government and all Volunteers who save animals, foster injured and homeless animals in their own homes. Most of the Volunteers of the group are teenagers who work on volunteer basis without pay after school and during school breaks. They are doing amazing work and it shows! Only for the fist month of 2015 SV group has rescued over 40 homeless injured animals and provided food for 3 litters of homeless puppies!

The food, medications, and cost of vet services are covered by donations.

Please be a part of a good deed and donate.

Thank you!
