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!

Kitten on the side of the road

The founder of SV group was driving outside the city when she thought that she saw something in the grass on the side of the road.

Then she asked her husband who was driving to pull over and go back.

She was right and it was a little black and white kitten.  There were no houses nearby, only the roads. The kitten was left there to die.

After the initial check up we found out that the kitten has ringworm that is now being treated. The kitten is being kept separately from other animals due to ringworm.

Rescue Operation of 3 kittens

On July 23 Sterlitamak Volunteers were informed about a litter of 3 kittens and their cat mom living in the basement of a dentist clinic. The clinic has requested to seal all entrances into the basement and if the kittens and their mom were not rescued, they could be trapped inside the basement and die.

3 Volunteers went to rescue the cat family that day.  Upon arrival they witnessed 3 happy kittens playing in the sun right outside the basement.

The rescue operation has begun:

The kittens and their cat mom were not happy to be chased after and bothered. 3 hour later the Volunteers got 2 kittens out of 3. Their mother cat escaped from the basement.

2 rescues are ready for a bath

The kittens were infested with fleas. The water they were bathed in turned red. They received flea medicine and medicated bath.

Just a small part of fleas

Boys are very stressed and hissy

Their first night at the foster home was stressful. But they are getting all the medications, food and care they need.

The third kitten managed to escape.  The kitten was caught the next day and it was a whole new adventure.

The 3rd kitten with cat mom

 

The kitten was outside running in the sun next to a shallow pipe that led into the basement. The Volunteers tried to cover one end of the pipe to trap the kitten and get it ou. But it was easier said than done:

This rescue operation finally ended when they got the kitten inside the basement the next day.  It turned out to be a girl and she was not happy, like her brothers, to be bathed and treated for fleas and worms.

These kittens are now being cared for at the homes of the Volunteers. After they are socialized and adapted to the human interaction all 3 kittens will be put up for adoption.

This rescue operation is one of many that SV group does every day.  Please help us by donating a small amount, that will go a long way in Russia. Only for the month of July the SV group took into their homes over 60 animals, provided food and medical attention. The group does not have a designated shelter space or the means to rent out a place for animals and all Volunteers take the sick, abandoned, abused and homeless animals into their homes. After the animals are healthy and ready for adoption the Volunteers organize adoption events.

We need your help.

SV group.

Update – 1 out of 5 puppies survived

For her young age (only 4 months old) Lapa has been through a lot. She was born homeless in a litter of 5 puppies, then the puppies were supposed to be fostered by someone but those people betrayed the puppies and let them starve and eventually the “foster parents” drove the puppies out to the woods to leave them there without shelter and food to die. (You can see the story in earlier posts).

When SV group learned about the puppies it was too late and sadly all but one died.

After numerous visits to the vet clinic and iv fluids and other medications, Lapa is doing well and has gained enough weight. She was spayed recently as well. The surgery went well and now Lapa is ready for her forever home.

She is still shy and skittish but with a lot of love her personality will come out soon.

SV group is looking for her forever home now and we cannot wait for her to have a family that will be able to give her enough attention and love that she deserves.

SV group is hoping that Lapa will get her happy tail soon.

Please consider a small donation towards Lapa’s needs. A small amount will go a long way.

Thank you!
