Rescued puppies

BAGIRA volunteers found 5 puppies in a plastic bag in the middle of a road on  February 28, 2016. They were a few days old.

4 boys and 1 girl.  Lisa, one of the volunteers, took 4 puppies (all of the boys) and the only girl was adopted right away.

The puppies were in great hands. Here are some pictures:

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.

Thank you!

Results July 2015

SV group is doing a remarkable work saving homeless animals in the hometown Sterlitamak, Russia.

Only in July 2015 the Volunteers rescued 95 animals.

They found homes for 69 animals.

3 cats and 3 dogs were spayed and neutered.

Received donations: $504.10  (= 32011 rubles)

Spendings: $460.59 (=29248 rubles)

Owed for previous month: $32.28 (=2050 rubles)

Balance for July 2015: $11.20 (= 711 rubles)

__________________________________________________________________________The balance of $11.20 is budgeted for spaying surgery of a mom cat found recently, but the procedure was delayed because all fosters are filled with animals and there is no spot for the after the surgery recovery (10 days).

As a result of July 2015, SV group has a balance of zero and 29 animals in their foster care.

The Volunteers are people with big hearts and endless energy. They accept any help they can get: old clothes, food for the animals, transportation for their injured and usually critical animals and just kind words of encouragement.

This work goes unnoticed by many citizens on Sterlitamak and many think that the Volunteers must take in every single homeless animal in town. At adoption events organized a few times a week by the Volunteers, they get swarmed by people who bring boxes of newborn kittens and puppies! These people get aggressive if the Volunteers refuse to take the animals. And these Volunteers are usually teenagers who spend their free time helping to fix the mistakes of negligent and irresponsible adults.

SV group wants to proceed with TNR campaign (Trap-Neuter-Return) but unfortunately they do not have the money or the place to keep the cats and dogs after the surgery for 10 days before the stitches should come out and the animals can be released.

Please make a small donation towards saving lives of animals. Any amount will go a long way.
